Ask the Experts: Tipping Your Wedding Day Vendors

Posted by Azure on April 8th, 2010
Ask the Experts is a wedding advice column that lets you put your biggest wedding questions in front of a panel of wedding vendors and experts.

If you have a question for the panel write

This week's question: Dear Experts,
This pile of cash wrapped in red and gold ribbons symbolizes giving a tip to a vendor on your weddin

Do wedding vendors who own their own businesses expect a tip? In my mind, if you’re a planner or florist, and you own your business, you set the price that you think is fair for your work, so it’s different than tipping a waiter who works for someone else and whose salary is set expecting that he’ll be tipped. But, a lot of articles I read seem to indicate that you tip everyone who works on your wedding day. I don’t want to cheat someone if their price was set assuming I would tip them, but I also don’t want to double my wedding budget with tips.
