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

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
