Tip etiquette

Who among your wedding service providers are you tipping? How much are you giving?

I don’t remember everyone my husband and I tipped, but I know we rewarded our DJ and the waitstaff for good service. Most of the time, gratuity is included in your catering budget, but we wanted to give a little extra for good service.

Who else is it common to tip? Any delivery persons, restroom and coatroom staff and your limo driver, just to name a few. It’s also a nice gesture to give a tip or thank-you gift to your ceremony officiant; many ministers will ask that you donate your tip to their church. Civil officiants can’t accept a gratuity.

At my wedding, we found the easiest way to dole out the tips was to ask my dad to do so — it was one less thing for us to think about!
