What % Did You Tip Vendors?

Recommended Posts

Not questioning whether I should tip or what exact $ amount you tipped, bc everyone's basis is different. I'm wondering what % you tipped your vendors. Specifically

WC

DJ

Bartender of open bar whose gratuity is already included in head count

Servers whose gratuity is already included in plate price

Photographer

Baker

Florist

 

 

I want to know if what I had planned will be received well. If it aligns with the majority I would think it would.

 

I know any gratuity is appreciated. I also know how gratuity is expected in Mexico based on 12 years of visiting.

 

Thanks everyone!!

Hey!

 

I can't help you as a lot of these people were included in my package, and since I don't know what they were paid I am unsure of a percentage.

 

I just went with what I felt was fair at the time.   In hindsite, I may have tipped a little more to the reception staff because honestly I have no idea how many people worked behind the scenes. I did count who I could see on the floor plus some kitchen staff and if that number is fairly accurate I think I tipped them respectfully. 

 

EDIT: Honestly though, I think these people are over the moon with anything.  When we had our private dinner on the beach after our wedding, we tipped our server 150 pesos and he actually kissed it, held it to his heart and then put it in his pocket.  (he didn't do this in front of us, but hubby saw him do it away from us)

Thanks!

 

I appreciate your help!

 

I know, I get it. I know how incredible service is there and how they literally work for n value tips.

 

I am trying to figure out what they are used to receiving for weddings so I can tip them.

 

I've sourced all vendors and I couldn't tip each 20% that would cost me around 3k.

 

I wonder who gets the 35 bucks per person in gratuity charges for my food and bar service that's tacked on to my invoice.

 

Don't want to short change any

one.

 

Anyone??

I doubt the workers get it all - maybe some but not all. That's was frustrating is you shouldn't have to tip twice. I know your WC is new but could you ask her? I didn't ask mine just ensured I could tip waitstaff as a group.

I will ask. If I find out they receive all of it I will be satisfied by that.

 

Trying to figure how I'm going to squeeze in tips is brutal.

I think all my tips are included. I was surprised to realize that people tip the WC ...I guess it makes sense but then I thought they were also hired by the resort to coordinate the wedding and it shouldn't be a tip based position

I may tip WC if she gets her act together. The WC at the venue quit and I LOVED her, I was fully prepared to gift her upwards of $300, bc she was phenomenal. New one, not so much.

All my wedding people were resort employees, so I had no idea what to tip!

But I tipped the WC, photographer, and waitstaff at the reception!

My wedding is a month out and my planner hasn't responded to my emails for the last month... If I tip her it's not going to be too much. I just really hope my wedding is still beautiful I can't even handle thinking that it won't be

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
