I found out that tips were a thing when we booked our
venue (I know I'm embarrassed to admit that) but now I'm curious about how much of a tip we should give or how to even determine that?

    Tips are not required and are only given to those who go above and beyond the call of duty. Do not give tips for no shows, bad service, or simply doing their jobs. Wait till after the honeymoon to assess who was stellar and who wasn't and distribute tips at time to those who earned them. Generally stellar service is 10-15% but don't go broke either.

    If you Google who to tip at weddings, there's a few links that breaks it down by vendor. I'm using a mash up of those to find the "right" amount to tip (depending on quality of service of course). I'm planning on putting aside around $800-$1000 to tip all my vendors.
    I plan to have the amounts split into different envelopes and give them to the best man to distribute the day of the wedding and let him know if to reduce the amounts if bad service is received. Yes it's an extra thing to do on the wedding day, but my FH is a personal chef who receives tips for his service, so we strongly think tips should be given the day of service.

    Like Michelle mentioned, only tip AFTER the wedding is over and all services are concluded. That way you can sit down together and determine how well to tip judging by how well they performed their service. If you google: "what to tip wedding vendors" there should be plenty of resources that come up. Tip well for a job well done, but don't go broke doing so.

    Hi Ash! Hopefully these photos will come through clearly- I made a spreadsheet with columns for the vendor, when to tip and the standard amount based on internet research. My now husband and I sat down together and made a column of we wanted to tip (I removed that column). Hope this helps!! ❤️Tips 1

    I love this question it is so relevant and an added cost that most don't think about. I, too am curious how to go about who/what/how much to tip.
