Gift or Tip For Wedding Coordinator?
Posted 29 June 2010 - 02:19 PM
What is the etiquette for tipping or giving a gift to the wedding coordinator at a destination wedding? If indicated, when should it be given? Our wedding will be at the Gran Caribe Real Cancun.
Thanks for your help!

Thanks, I was wondering the same thing. So far, we are a few months away, (I am getting married in Los Cabos in Feb, 2011) but getting any response from the wedding co ordinator via email has been like pulling teeth! Even important emails re: changes to the contract etc. I understand emails about flowers can wait, but come on! So we will see if she gets better as things more along closer to the date. I find that I am doing a lot of blank planning because she simply is not there! We will see.

So far, my WC has been very helpful. I am planning on tipping him $100 as long as every still goes smoothly from now till the wedding.
I love being a Mrs.!

Great question. Didn't even think about this. Gosh this is such a great board...I cant say it enough.

We just returned from our wedding at Dreams in Cabo.
We tipped probably a lot for everything but we really appreciated the service we received and Mexico is a country where it is customary to tip for services (from what we observed in the many vacations we've taken there).
I think it's a personal choice however I'm not sure it's 100% expected. Tip what you feel comfortable with would be my advice.
We found everyone to work so hard to ensure we were happy and we felt that significant tips were earned and our WC worked with me for almost 1 1/2 years and accommodated us in everything we wanted including last minute changes. Yes in the beginning the email responses were slower but they have so many weddings on the go that they give preference to them in order. As our date approached I would receive same day or next day responses. We didn't have one single thing go wrong and all due to our WC.
Anyway, long drawn out explanation that it doesn't so much matter what other people tip just do your own thing and what you feel you should tip is what you should!

If we wanted to tip, is there a certain % of the wedding costs that is expected or could we just do something like $100?
