The

n w o d w o g L n i p p i T on WEDDING VENDORS by Susan Southerland

134


The vendors who work with you on your wedding assume most of the responsibility of making sure you and your future spouse have the most amazing day of your lives. They spend a lot of time before - and sometimes after - the wedding seeing that everything comes together perfectly for you. If you’d like to thank one or more of your wedding vendors for their hard work with a tip but you’re not sure how much or when to tip them, here’s a guide to help you:

• STYLING SERVICES.

It’s customary to tip your stylist or barber 15 to 20 percent of their fee, and the tip should be added to their payment at the time of service.

• OFFICIANT.

If you’re using an officiant at your house of worship, you would most commonly make a contribution to that place of worship ($100-$250 is average). If you’re using a private officiant, they’re usually paid a direct fee and tipping is optional. $50- $100 is the recommended range.

• WEDDING PLANNER.

If you’d like to recognize exceptional service by your wedding planner, either present the tip to him or her at the end of the wedding day or in a thank you note after your honeymoon. The recommended range is $100-$500 (depending on how long the wedding planner is working with you beforehand and on the big day). 135


• MUSICIANS.

If you have a band, the average tip is $25-$35 per musician. DJs and emcees average a tip of $50-$100. Tips are typically presented to them at the end of the reception.

• PHOTOGRAPHERS AND VIDEOGRAPHERS.

Tips for vendors who work for themselves may vary from those who work for a big company (because the individuals tend to earn more per event). An average tip for individuals is $50-$100 and the average for employees is a little higher at $100-$200.

• CATERER AND SETUP TEAMS.

These behind-the-scenes staff members are typically tipped in the contracts you sign for them. Review all of your contracts to see which include gratuities and which don’t so you know whether or not to tip someone.

WHAT IS A SAVE THE DATE? SAVE THE DATE is a pre-invitation that officially announces your wedding date and lets guests know that they will, in fact, be invited to the celebration.

REASONS YOU SHOULD SEND SAVE THE DATES PLENTY OF NOTICE Sending out save the dates will make it easier for your wedding guests to plan accordingly with their schedules, jobs, reservations and rentals. UP-TO-DATE DETAILS Save the dates are a great place to include your wedding website. Doing so will keep your outof-town guests up-to-date on hotel blocks, transportation details, local recommendations, etc. SHOW OFF YOUR ENGAGEMENT You’ve had your engagement photos done, now share them with your guests. Select your FAV photo and use it on your save the date. This way your wedding guests will have all the information they need, plus a fabulous photograph to look at on their fridge.

If you send out a save the date and a wedding guest already has something happening that day, there is a good chance they will call and let you know.
