oh god, not another expense? this seems so pointless, especially if you are tipping them already on top of their fee

    I haven't though about this...thanks for the insight.
    I feel as though you should be hospitable to the vendors who have been with you all day.

    Vendors (photographer & DJ) usually always require food. They are people too and  need to eat to function. It's not like they can leave your wedding to go get food, so you need to bring it to them.

    They are usually fine with heavy appetizers and will step off to the side to eat really quick. Just make sure you talk about it when you book them. It's not like they need the 4 course meal your guest get they just need fuel to keep working.

    Most resorts have vendor meals... So you aren't expected to feed them your lobster dinner if that's the menu you select for your guests.

    Yes you should definitely feed your photographers. Generally there's a reduced price for their food, since their meal is only part of the menu, however they do need to be fed as well.  They'll be working a lot of hours as well, and deserve a nice warm meal.  They generally will eat at a separate table or in an "outside" table away from your guests, but it really depends on the venue and vendor.
