Don't Forget To Tip!

People think they have their whole budget down, but don't forget about the people helping you out. Here is a short list of some of the people who might be helping out in your wedding and how much gratuity they should get.


  • Catering Staff, 15 to 20 percent of the catering bill. Splitting it up amongst the catering manager, chefs, and waiters.

  • Musicians and DJ's, Most don't expect to be tipped but are presently surprised when they are. About $20 per musician and $25 for a DJ.

  • Stylist's and Make up Artists, They should be tipped about 15% just like a normal appointment. If anyone extra helps out with washing or shampooing give $3 to $5 each.

  • Photographers, Videographers, Florists, and Wedding Coordinators, Tipping for these people isn't necessary either, but if you wish to it's about $30-50 for photographers, videographers, and florists. And about $50-100 for wedding coordinators.

  • Site Staff, Pay coat checkers $1-2 per guest, for them to share, powder room attendants, .50-$1 per guest to share, and $1-1.50 per car for parking manager to split with the valets.

  • Seamstress, Delivery People, and Drivers, The people delivering flowers and cake should receive $3-$5 each. If limo tip isn't included in your bill, pay 15-20%. For seamstress's a cash tip is not expected but you can always send a photo of you in your dress!
