This is just from memory, hope it helps! Have a great time!!!!!

 

Bus driver $5 (i assume you mean the driver from the airport)

Chandlyn $50

Waitstaff- $3-4 each night at dinner

$10- we sat in the same place for breakfast everyday so we just tipped the girl on the last day

Bartender $1 here and there but we didn't always have cash with us

Steel Band- we bought a couple of their CDs

Videographer- NA

Excursion Host- $3-4 for the driver

Man I over tipped..lol Well atleast this one time we did. We had gone on this trip to Margritiaville and we had this bus driver who was like intimidating us to give him a good tip. We basically told us we needed to tip him $20! Everyone on the bus complained! We usually tipped $5-$10 but this guy was intimdating! We thought maybe we were undertipping everyone else!

We were always on a packed bus, so a couple of bucks from everyone adds up to a pretty nice tip. And it was always hard to get change anywhere so we had to give them whatever we had on us. The only person who demanded a big tip was our tour guide at Dunns River.

Thank you this help alot. Did you tip your bartender who servered you during your reception and the dj? I know everyday tipping but I was more or less talking about our wedding day. Like did you tip the pastor who performed your ceremony??

I fully intended too, but DH and I were pulled in so many directions it slipped both our minds. I intended to give them each $50. I would suggest putting the tips in individual envelops and asking the best man or someone to be in charge of it. We didn't even get to give Chandlyn her tip and thank you card until the day before we left b/c we couldn't ever catch up with her after our wedding.

Hi, just a tidbit for anyone interested. They sell "wedding gratuity envelopes" for only $2.95 per dozen on "www.orientaltrading.com". I purchased them myself. I am going to write the name of each recipient very small on the envelope for referencing & put the tips in ahead of time & put them in the safe when I arrive. Then just put them in your bridal purse or give them to the best man & you'll be all set. you or whomever u choose can reference the names on each envelope & give them out accordingly. The site also has a whole wedding section & luau tropical section with many things u can use for welcome bags.

And remember, tips are for good service! If you get great service, tip away, if the service stinks, don't feel bad not tipping. We tipped the bartenders and servers but Chandlyn didn't get a dime of our money since we didn't get a minute of her attention. I was fully prepared to tip her but really didn't feel she deserved it!

    • Now we can say life is divided into before and after. And only now I understand our life was so good when there were no restrictions and quarantine. Thank you for sharing this beautiful wedding story. We also got married before the pandemic, and we had a beautiful wedding and a wonderful honeymoon. And during the quarantine, my husband lost his job and was depressed, we had big family problems that could lead to a divorce. Fortunately, I found a blog with marriage advice on how to avoid divorce and we passed this test.
