what is everyone's take on tipping as it relates to everyone that will be taking care of putting your wedding on at the resort? who do you tip and who do you not tip? for example, since it's an all-inclusive resort, would we not tip our bartenders at our cocktail hour and reception?

I found this great thread on tipping awhile back :) http://www.bestdesti...ng-etiquette/30

    I had the same question, thank you for posting. I knew I would be tipping my WC for sure and planned to tip the DJ and anyone else (bartender, waiter, etc) who we thought provided excellent service.

      I have started putting stuff aside to pack and the pile is getting pretty big. I am hoping we can fit it all in 3 big suitcases + our carry-ons. We are flying with westjet so the extra suitcase should only cost $20.....I think. We only have about 26 people coming.....maybe 28....

        It's coming along well.  I have most of the big stuff done, just waiting on all of the RSVP's to come back so I can finalize some of the details I've been waiting on. Are you using an outside vendor for flowers? I was going to use Maya before I pretty much nixed flowers entirely

        Yes,I heard some really good things about Maya, but I've been really disappointed with communication. Hopefully they get better closer to the date. I'm interested how you're going to do without flowers :) Are you replacing them with something else?

          My reception just ended and I am tired and happy. The reviews will come after the honeymoon. I will like to thank everyone on this thread. I could have not plan this whole event without your help

              There was a delay between getting my emails responded to I remember that but assumed it was because it was during peak wedding season.

               

              I would definitely have done flowers if it wasn’t a DW because I LOVE them but I knew I’d be spending well over a 1,000 to just throw it all away 5 hours later, it’s not like people are going to bring centerpieces and bouquets back from MX, so I decided I was going to think of something that didn’t require flowers.

               

              My bouquet and my FI's boutonniere are included in the package so we have those. The other boutonniere’s I ordered off of Etsy, they’re from KateSaidYes.   The girls will have clutches and I’m having the GM escort them down the aisle, we have one extra GM (I had a BM drop out) so I can have the best man stand with my FI at the altar and everyone else will come in with a GM and a clutch. The clutches were designed to match their dresses and have little flowers on them. I found the idea on a wedding blog and it looked cute and reusable.  For Centerpieces I’m doing flameless pillar candles on glass plates with a ribbon around them that matches the table runners I’m bringing. Everything is pretty much white, pastel pink and a few hints of silver thrown in here and there. Simple but hopefully pretty
