    I am really getting confused on all of the tipping.


    I read that you shouldn't tip business owners, but what about the second shooter the photographer hires? And if they do get a tip what do I base that on and how do I give something to them and not the main photographer? 


    Also my coordinator charges 15% on what she books. I am assuming I tip the people she books (guitarist who charges $175 and officiant, I am not sure of his cost since he is included in her $345 basic package). Do I still tip her? Do they get 20% tips? 


    What about the coordinator at the restaurant that I am in contact with? Does she get a separate tip than the one on the bill at the end of the night? 


    I just want to make sure we separate envelopes out for this ahead of time. Thank you!

    For us we didn't really tip many people.  We tipped our photographer and our wedding coordinators from the resort (we gave them small gifts rather then money).
