What would you say a good tip is for each vendor? Are you doing a percentage of what they charge? A specific amount for each one? The same amount for each one?

    I spent so long on this reading different articles and watching youtube videos on this topic. If you search the forums you will find the discussions with lots of those listed. I did 20% for hair and makeup. Everyone else I did a flat amount - somewhere between $50 and $150 for each person. Most of my vendors own their business and I tipped them anyway because they were outstanding. I semi followed the advice I found that gave certain percentages for certain vendors and then adjusted it to my budget. My day of coordinator suggested that if I felt some one had gone above and beyond to tip them and I followed that. I tipped my photographers, florist, cake baker, dj, events manager at my venue and my day of coordinator. Tip was already included in the shuttle I hired to transport guests and in my catering/bar costs.

    Hey Miranda!

    There is actually an article in the ideas section that I think would be a great help for you - Exactly How Much To Tip Wedding Vendors: A Complete List.

    Have you checked all of your vendor contracts to see if any of them have gratuity already included?

    Thank you! I didn’t even think to look for another discussion about it. None of the contracts have a tip included in the price
