There are many guides to check out tipping vendors based on whom is working for the company to be tipped and the vendors themselves providing the service who don't get tipped. You can give a card with the tip included to Thank them and make them feel appreciated for what they do as professionals.

    That’s a very good question!
    I did not think about tipping, but thought of giving a token of some kind. I’m still looking into that. But that’s a good option to think about, tipping or token of appreciation. Haha

    Me again - we also made sure to leave Google reviews for every single vendor/shop/business.

    I should add, I do not think it's expected but it's definitely greatly appreciated.

    We did a lot of digging into this because we really wanted to do the right thing. Gratuity was in our venue bill so we didn't need to worry about that so then we did what Christina just said - those working for a company who provided an exceptional service to us (salons, videographer, DJ... likely forgetting someone now...). We did give our photographers a gift (gift cards to favourite local shops) after our legal ceremony.

    Obvious ones to tip are caterers/bartenders/venues because they’re typically (hopefully) passing the tips on to the servers and other service type jobs likely making close to minimum wage. A lot of these vendors will have gratuity worked into the contract so you probably won’t even have to think about it. Also anyone providing services like hair or makeup that works for a company you’ve hired similar to if you’d be in a salon. If you’re hiring them directly though I don’t think it’s mandatory because they can set their price.
    Otherwise I think it’s just up to you and whether you think they are deserving of a tip. But I’ve never worked in the wedding industry so others may have differing opinions.
