please dont pelt me other photographers...

 

i rarely get tips, nor do i expect them. when i get them i really appreciate it, but i usually find some way to give that amount back to the client in prints or album pages, a gift, etc... the tips i have gotten have ranged from $200-$600. so between 5-10% of the package. i start at $3500 right now. (soon to change though)

 

i didnt have a WC so i cant tell you what id tip them but i would guess 20%?

I thought I read that tips should be given to say waiters, band members, etc not people that work for their own company. Is that not the case?

I agree that the people who are working wages should get the tips, but I know that my caterer is charging $20 an hour for the staff, now I don't know any wait staff or bartenders that actually make $20 an hour so she told me that includes the tip cost...which is weird that its included, but hey whatever works right.

Since we are meeting up with our photographer while we are in Cancun to get our CD's and DVD's I was going to suggest that we meet at a restaurant and we pick up the tab for dinner. Since it already seems from the emails back and forth that she is a real easy person to get along with, it might be a fun night.

I am guessing that 10% is a generous jester. I am not sure if your vendors really expect a tip. I thought it would be included in the package.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
