It ends when you say it does. If one of your vendors goes above and beyond and you feel you want to say thanks, go for it. If they don't then don't tip.

I know this is an older thread but I'm still curious about the tipping questions - especially at an AI, where you are purchasing a wedding package and aren't really dealing with hiring your own vendors. Any brides who had their DW at an AI that can share how they handled the tipping?

I'm also curious -- I think though that I would tip the WC or maybe give her a nice gift and then I would tip the waitstaff (somehow? I don't really want to be orchestrating handing out tips on my wedding day)

 

And the person that performs the ceremony - if we don't meet them until minutes before the service, how on earth would we tip him? It's not like I will be carrying a purse... I suppose the groom could carry cash and such..

My god, it's just more to worry about!!

The knot has an article on tipping but not sure how much of it applies to DW.

On the site if you type in Wedding Vendors: Tipping Cheat Sheet in the search box it comes right up. Sorry didn't know how to place the link here.

I think what I'm going to do it make up some thank you cards with some money in each for various people (WC, judge, wait staff, photographer). I think that will be an easy thing to slip them at a quick moment. If I feel that someone doesn't deserve a tip (which I hope doesn't happen because that means something will have gone really wrong) then I will just keep the envelope to myself.

This is a great idea, thank you
