Tipping for Wedding in DR
Posted 21 December 2009 - 02:53 PM
I am wondering about Tipping? I know that there is already service charges on our wedding bill but dont know if or even who I would/should tip for my wedding day? Or even how much?
Any ideas ladies? I need your help!

We have the bartenders/servers each a small tip, then a fairly large one for the WC if that helps at all.

Rehersal Dinner-$40 for waitstaff
WC-$160 for WC and her assistant. Plus I gave our WC all of our centerpieces, candles, and left over stuff because she was starting a busines. They were AMAZING and nothing I could pay them would equal what they gave me on my wedding day.
Waitstaff for reception-$40 but I feel like I should have given them more
Spa-tipped as I do at home 15-20%
The videogrpaher owned the business so we didn't feel it necessary to give him more. The photog we flew from home so that was enough. Rick York was our "Pastor" we paid him $300 for the ceremony so that was more than enough. The musicians were paid directly $200 for a half an hour so again that was enough.
I think it really depends on what you are comfortable with and the service you are given.

Can you tell me if you had a good experience working with him and was he worth the $300 or do you think the WC could have done the same thing. I have reserved him for my date and he sent me a sample ceremony and it is very pretty, just wanna know how you felt about his ceremony. Also were you required to get a day pass for him? Thanks!
Also, he just did the ceremony and left I barely saw him as things got busy (as you can imagine) so we did not have to get a day pass for him. If he stays as a guest and eats etc then you would have to get him a day pass.
