vendor tipping etiquette
Posted 27 November 2006 - 08:48 PM
$100 to our day-of WC (and her assistant)
$100 to videographer
(These two vendors basically worked their butts off for us and weren't making that much $$)
We confirmed that all of the catering service charge actually went to the wait staff as tips.
We did not tip photog, guitar player, or DJ. (Not really for any reason except they were already kind of expensive so we just felt like we paid enough. These guys were making $200/hr+. The WC and the videographer were making more like $50/hr.)
Who else am I missing?

When it came time to tip, Marc just started handing out money and this is what he did:
Maye - $50
Mariana - $50
Dj Ricardo - $50
Juan Carlos - $50
We weren't planning this one. But I think he stayed longer than he should have, so I don't mind that we did. If I had know Marc was going to tip him, I would have told him not to. Only bcz, like you said, he is charging enough and works freelance. But Marc didn't realize he wasn't supposed to tip him. Oh well.
Sam Perches - $0
Only bcz he ran off too fast. We meant to tip him! We actually feel really bad here, bcz he gave us a really good deal (so I thought until I read Janet's review!!)
Servers & bartender
Marc gave one server $100 and told him to split it with everyone. I hope he did! I would advise tipping everyone separately.

I am trying to budget the amt of money I will need for tipping.
My Vendors are:
Wedding Coordinatior who is also ordering the flower, limo, minister, and harpist. The fee we paid him includes all of these and he will get them for us..
so do I tip him? If so how much? He is also the photographer.
Now I think I should individually tip the
Should I just use the standard 15% rule of thumb? I do know how much the services cost for each vendor.
Now for the dinnerâ€¦they say for a party of 10 a more a service charge of 18%is appliedâ€¦.in Chicago it usually say 18% tip. Does service charge = tip in most places?

In hotels, tip bellhops at least $1 per piece of luggage ($2-$3 if you have a lot of luggage), and tip the housekeeping staff $1 per person, per day. Tip the doorman or concierge only if he or she has provided you with some specific service (for example, obtaining difficult-to-get theater tickets). Tip the valet-parking attendant $1 to $2 every time you get your car.
In restaurants, bars, and nightclubs, tip service staff 15% to 20% of the check, tip bartenders 10% to 15%, and tip valet-parking attendants $1 to $2 per vehicle. Tip the doorman only if he or she has provided you with some specific service (such as calling a cab for you). Tipping is not expected in cafeterias and fast-food restaurants.
Tip cab drivers 15% of the fare.
As for other service personnel, tip skycaps at airports at least $1 per piece ($2-$3 if you have a lot of luggage), and tip hairdressers and barbers 15% to 20%. Tipping ushers at theaters is not expected.
