Tipping vendors? Money or gift?

We defiantly want to tip our photographer and DJ/MC, what is most appropriate? Money? or a gift/gift card?

    I fullly agree with Jen since they are catering to you for their services on the day. I prepared thank you cards to give our vendors. The only that received a gift was the wedding coordinator at the venue taking care of everything for breakfast and reception.

    We tipped our vendors with cash as that was easiest and one less thing to put in the car and bring to the wedding.

    Oh this is a great question I was wondering the same. The girls are right (based on what I have read) - if they own the company a gift would be nice, if they are an employee - cash tip is best received!

    I agree with both previous posters! If the person owns their company then you could give them a small gift, while if they’re an employee of a company then tip them cash ☺️

    Keep in mind too that if they own the company you do not need to tip them as they receive that full amount.

    I think cash is always appreciated the most. Unless you know them well and know they love a particular store or something, I'd go for cash.
