    This is kind of an etiquette type question . . .

    Although it's not like our wedding coordinator has been in constant contact with me over the last year I'd still like to either tip her or give her some kind of gift to show how much we appreciate her planning our wedding. Is this kind of thing customary in Cabo and for the resort wedding coordinators? Does anyone have any suggestions on what we could do (cash or gift)?

      Hi Rebekah -
      We gave our wedding coordinator a gift and a cash tip when we arrived. I also brought her some gifts for her 6 year old daughter. Some of the things were Wisconsin t-shirts, nail polish, headbands, baseball cap, Justin Bieber CD for her daugther, starfish necklace for both of them. We gave her $100 cash right away. After the wedding and seeing how amazing everything turned out we ended up giving her another $200.

      I think a lot of brides gave around $100 - we really appreciated everything our WC did so we wanted to make sure we gave her a little more. Hope this helps!

          I never thought of this either - I honestly don't think that I'd bring a gift... as I'm unsure what she'd like... I do think that money/tip would be appropriate. I've been in contact with mine often (!!).

          Thanks for asking this questions. I'll stop back to see some other answers!

            I tipped our wedding coordinator (Mandy Clough) $100. She was our coordinator the day of only but she was fabulous and completely put my mind at ease. I think honestly, it's just like anything: If they do an exceptional job, tipping is great. And much appreciated by the vendor in question.
