Tipping Etiquette?

Hi Kard613,

 

USD holds a greater value in Mexico then their own peso. Having said that, it can sometimes be hard for them to use or exchange. It is always best we find to ask the front desk upon arrival what the staff would prefer, or better yet ask your WC before you depart!!

 

Happy Planning!

I want to bump this up for us current brides...its quite useful. .I know I was wondering who gets tips and how much without looking cheap.. I am a tipper but I'm also starting to feel nickel and dimed to death...all the costs and it's supposed to be AI...so this has given me a good idea what to give...

I had planned to tip the WC but wasn't sure if the photographer expected one. New territory. But I am comfortable how to tip on the resort

My family and I were just discussing this last night at dinner. Tipping is something I do typically, but I hadnt even really thought about tipping at the wedding until I found these threads. So many little things that I didnt even think of are being added to my list.

A lady I know who married at my resort said she tipped the WC $50. She said she ended up with some wedding extras she hadn't asked for or paid for so wasn't even sure the WC took the money for herself. But I plan to tip cause I want it all to go off without a hitch! And show we appreciate their hard work.

 

Thoughts on photography? I know sometimes they build that in the price.

@@calgarybride2015 - I don't think I'd tip the photographer if it is his company and he's getting paid directly through the fee. If it was an associate or something, I probably would tip (and assistants). Same goes for things like hair, makeup, video, etc.

 

Our tips will be based on performance.  We tip generously, but we do expect good service. I've read some horror stories about WCs - I would definitely not tip a bad WC

I don't know if this still applies or not, but when we got married the WCs weren't allowed to accept monetary gifts, so I purchased a couple of things here before we left to give to them. We did tip our videographer and photographer but I don't remember how much. This was Jamaica so I don't know what the policy is for Mexico, and it may vary by resort too.

 

And I agree about the "by service". I refuse to tip when service is bad and I think that should apply to a resort too. Especially an AI. Why condone bad behaviour?

I had planned to tip before but maybe not! A bride on here told them here is $50 and if all goes well you can have another $50 after but not sure that's me
