    I think this varies a lot by location, type of venue, etc., so I think it's a good idea to ask around to make sure you understand the typical conventions/expectations that might apply to your vendors. For example, we absolutely did not want any tip jars on the bar at daughter's wedding, so our venue coordinator suggested each of the two bartenders should be tipped $100 to in lieu of what they would like make via tip jars. And I've read lots of posts on this forum that professional vendors do not really appreciate a "personal gift" in place of a monetary tip as the chart suggests for the photographer. Daughter's photographer owns his own business, but we tipped him $200 cash to be shared with his second shooter, and he was VERY appreciative.

    I completely agree that it varies by location and vender! This wasn’t meant to be a set in stone thing, but rather a guide. I paid my way through undergrad with a tip jar at weddings that I was the bartender so I would NEVER think to take that away from another person. But, like you said, it’s all personal preference and vender preference. This is just a guide I thought helpful. Take it or leave it.
