Thanks for checking out my blog!
I'll try to keep it updated with all kinds of event information so that you know all the
necessary information, tips, and tricks to plan your next event.
Tipping is always a rough subject with everyone.
Do you tip? How much do you tip? When do you tip?
Well let's talk about it so that you can feel a bit better about the subject.
Do you tip? If you've been given great service by ANY of your event vendors, then I would suggest yes!
Just like if you went to a restaurant and the waiter made sure you were well taken care of, you would tip them.
It's roughly the same situation here.
If your coordinator went over and beyond the call of duty that day or treated everyone greatly to where your guests were bragging, then it doesn't hurt to show your appreciation with a financial token or even a thank you gift. Either of those options can go a long way.
How much do you tip?
Now I've seen some posts throughout big websites about how much to tip and personally I think that they are WAY off!
I think a 10-20% of total bill is perfectly fine, unless that amount exceeds $100. In that instance $100 will be plenty.
Unless they require a gratuity, I'm sure they will be grateful for anything and if they're not, then they don't really deserve a tip.
(That may just be me, but that's how I see it.)
When do you tip?
At the end of the service before they leave is a good time.
If you don't want to be carrying around money during your event, then hand it off to a maid/matron of honor or parent for them to disperse. You shouldn't worry about financials during your event anyways!
It doesn't have to be an iffy subject. It can be quite simple if you just look at the quality of service.
Great service was provided then it doesn't hurt to give them a Thank You.
