    Hi,
    I'm Darlene and getting married at Sandals Royal Caribbean on March 10th, 2009! I can't believe the time has flown by, and now am thinking of questions I should have asked a while ago.
    The officiant is included in our wedding package, but does anyone know if it is customary to give him "something extra"? Would you do this before or after the service?

    Thanks in advance,
    Darlene

        Hi Darlene,

        I think most officiants would not ask for gratification but would definitely appreciate it and give you a big smile!

        I don't think anyone would feel offended if you tipped them.
        Welcome to the forum!

              Sorry, forgot to answer your other question.

              Most people tip AFTER the ceremony.

              Good luck with your planning Darlene!

                Thank you all! That is what I was thinking, but wanted to make sure. After the ceremony, it is ...now, what would be an appropriate amount?

                      Welcome! I'm not sure what the right for the tips will be. I'll like to know too... because we would like to tip our WC as well.

                      Happy final planning!
