I'm going to try to take a snapshot of the card we've added to the welcome package and post it .... Saves me typing it all out
I have already verbalized this to a few people .... Some understanding, some not so much! But in the end it's not about what everyone else wants for those 30 min .... I want everyone there with us, and I want our ceremony photos to reflect that when we look back on them years later. The rest of the day we have planned specifically around our guests and what they would like, so we chose to be selfish during our ceremony!!
I have a question for all of you
Is anyone planning to (or did do, for those of you are already married) tip your Wedding Coordinator? I know there are different packages that are different prices, so I'm just wondering if any of you have an idea of what you will be doing. Is there a set amount that is the going rate, or do you base it off of a percentage of what you are paying for the wedding?
I figured that it would be easiest for my fiance and I to create envelopes before we go down for each person that we will be tipping so that we have this all sorted and don't have to try ruffling through cash once we are down there.
I am also wondering if anyone has ideas about how much to tip for DJ, waitstaff, etc?
Any feedback would be GREATLY appreciated!!!!
I'm very interested to see what everyone's thoughts are on this.
Personally I have had a hell of a time going through 3 WCs in the last 11 months, facing hassle after hassle, repeating my requests, politely "arguing" about costs they are saying I must incur despite the fact that it's clearly included in the package, and having to wait weeks for a responses. Am I in the mood to now tip this person when I am already spending a lot of money for a now 13 person guest list???? Hmmm .... I'm not quite feeling the need to tip anyone right now! I'm normally very generous when I receive great service, but I am not a fan of tipping when I feel like I HAVE to. At this point I would really need to be blown away on my wedding day to want to do this ... And then I would probably wait until the following day to seek out the persons that made an impact and tip them at that point.
What is everyone else feeling? I'd love to hear from past brides as well as to what they actually did.
