Who to Tip at Your Wedding

There is always some confusion over who you should tip at your wedding. Here is a list of people you should tip at your own wedding. Of course, if the people you hire do a bad job feel free to not tip them. (you do still have to pay them though)

  • The Limo or Car Driver, 15-20%
  • The DJ or Band, 15-20%
  • If you have outside caterers tip them 15% of the cost (check to see if the tip is included in the bill first)
  • Wedding Planner, what you feel is appropriate
  • The Officiant, 15%
  • Wedding Musicians, 15%
This should cover all of your tipping needs, if I forgot any one please leave a comment letting me know, Thanks.
