Anyhow, I was wondering if anyone tipped or planning to tip certain people during your wedding and/or vacation. For instance, do you tip the minister/judge? The wedding coordinator? Wait staff?etc If so, how much?
I would hate to give them a tip and then the person feel insulted. I guess what I'm asking is what is the customary average? Does it depend on what country you're in?

We are also bringing sacks of $1 & $2 bills to tip the maids, bartenders and anyone else who is deserving throughout the week (in the DR, it seems $1 goes a long way towards good service and general appreciation).
We are also bringing extra Travel Mugs and trinkets to give as tips.
Do we also tip our photog (I'm bringing mine and paying $4000)? Anyone I'm forgetting? Our TA -- does she get a tip or gift or something?

Tipping customs vary from country to country. It is advisable to inquire about tipping with the international tourism board representing the country you'll be traveling in. Simply ask for information about tipping customs and social expectations. You will also want to discuss gratuities with your travel agent or planner. Some travel packages include gratuities in the total cost, some leave that to the guests, and some even discourage tipping (usually because they have built it into the total package price) Be sure to discuss this with your travel planner.
