Hi april9639. I got married May 27th and fretted a lot about cash and tipping.
I did not tip the event staff the night of the wedding since that was specifically stated to be included in my package price. I did tip the two wedding coordinators Janet ($20) and Antonio ($10) though. My bridal party and I (4 of us in total) got our make-up done at the spa, and I tipped each lady $5. They did a beautiful job, and were very, very kind. I wish I would have tipped more, but I was almost out of cash at this point.
My husband and I also got massages at the spa, and since they were the best massages of our life, we tipped each masseuse $20.
Also if it helps, we left $20 for our room attendant at the end of the week, and paid about $100 in tips to bartenders and food servers throughout the week at the pool bars and restaurants.
Certainly do what feels right to you. Hope this helps
