Hi ladies I just read one of the articles on here and it mentioned make time to pay any outstanding fees to vendors including tips. What is the policy on tipping vendors? For hair and make up I know its usually 20 % give or take on how you liked the service. And even some include gratuity into the price. Everything else I didnt even think about tipping.What are your thoughts and insights???

    We won't be leaving tips at all. I'll be doing my own hair, makeup, and nails. Everything is is priced higher than if it wasn't a wedding so we feel we've paid enough.

    The only vendors that we will be tipping is our make up artist, hair stylist, and manicurist. We aren't tipping anyone else

    For myself I'm thinking down for the ceremony, soft waves. A soft, low, messy updo for the reception. Its still over a year away soo I'll probably change my mind a few times till then lol. I still have to figure out when there will be time to change it. Also if my coworker (who is invited to ) will be around to help. This is tricky as she will be woking a half day.

    Thanks. I hadn't even considered tipping for things like the venue, food, decor and flowers. With all the money being spent i was hoping tipping wasn't a thing for them. Lol so im glad to hear your optinions on it. Im a hair stylist, I specialize in blow outs and updos. When we do weddings the tipping is incorporated into the cost. This is broken down on the invoice so the person paying (usually bride) knows. I find the brides usually cover hair. I dont really like that the tipping is mandatory but my boss does it because if we were in salon working we would be getting tips. So its to make working weddings the same money as working in salon. I'd prefer it to be not included. If the bride is paying Id suggest to her to tell her party to tip as they see fit. And hope that they like the service. But on the other hand knowing the full cost ahead is nice and knowing u dont have to tip after is nice too.

    So agree with Rashna. I know that some place put the gratuity in their prices. Personally I would go ahead and tip them if you feel that the service they provided was great.

    Hi Tanya! Smiley heart

    I'm glad you asked your question in this group. It's important to consider your vendors policy on tipping in your budget. If you use the My Budget tool, you can even add a note in your budget to remember what vendors you should tip and what percentage.

    You could also ask other brides in your area what was their vendors policy on tipping.

    Eartha for example already booked her venue, you could ask her. Smiley smile

    Have you booked any of your vendors yet?

    Hi Tanya! Smiley smile I'm not sure if everyone will agree with that but I read that you don't have to give tips unless a vendor did something extra than what was written in the contract, in which case you would give a 15%-20% tip to show your appreciation of their service.
