Previous ROR brides... Tipping

Recommended Posts

Thanks for posting this.  It really helps to know what other brides...past and present have in mind when it comes to tipping :)

We did not tip the officiant nor the wedding coordinator.  It totally slipped my mind and I realized it after we left the RIU!  We did tip the waiter taking care of us for our semi-private reception because he did much more than I had ever read on here from other brides.  He set up the tables with our decorations for us rather than having to have a friend or family member do this.  He also got us alcoholic drinks from the bar which i guess is not the norm.  You typically have to get them yourself if you want something other than wine.  There were not very many people int he restaurant so our party really lucked out and did not have to leave the table at all.  I believe he got a 50.00 tip!  We took 250 with us for tipping and didn't spend but maybe 80 total on tips.

My travel agent said that she NEVER tips at any all inclusive but my husband tips big here at home so he was definitely going to tip at the RIU.  It makes him feel good because they don't make much money at all.  We are glad we did.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
