    Exactly.. Okay that makes me feel better. I agree with tipping the wait staff, bartenders etc... and the WC also, as they are all just paid the hourly wage the resort pays them.. and don't get a share of the HUGE chunk of money we are all shelling out for our packages.. so it totally makes sense to tip them, however i was struggling with the photographer.. as i am paying them good money , that goes directly to them! :)

     

    i feel better now hehehe

        I don't think we will be tipping anyone. We already pay enought money for the resort. Also it is not permitted at our resort...

          It is not permitted at our resort either.  Every resort I have ever been to says tipping is not permitted but every review or trip advisor i read people say they tip and service etc is better and appreciated.... I feel like that isn't right because you are paying all this money to be at the resort.  I understand their pay is not substantial but I just feel like it makes it tough for us and our guests.....

            I guess we will have to see on the spot, if they will WOW me, than I will consider it. I would not want to jeopardize their jobs by slipping them money too.

            Tricky topic, but I definitely would not tip photographer if he owns a company..

            I read reviews about tipping and all, also some people say that they tipped and did not tip at the same place and services were just as good each time... I guess it depends. Also if I will tip our photographer or WC I won't see service improvement, because I will do it after the wedding. If I would do it before, I would feel uncomfortable...

              Hi Ladies! We're still in the process of looking for brown flip flops for the guys to wear in our wedding party. Just wondering if anyone in this thread has seen any good places to buy any in Canada, or knows of any good websites that we should look at. We were hoping to get an end of summer deal, but I think we've now left it too late! Thanks for any suggestions you might have!

                  We bought ours at Kohls in the US, but did you try WalMart or Zellers? I just picked up a pair for our ring bearer on Friday for $5 at WalMart. My bridesmaids are actually also wearing George flip flops from WalMart....they are super cute silver ones with jewels and all my BMs loved them...especially the $12 price!!! haha.

                    If you just want brown "rubbery" ones Joe Fresh at Superstore/Loblaws has all their Flip Flops on for $1.97 right now, they had brown when I picked some up yesterday!
