Think your wedding budget is complete? Don’t forget to account for tipping your wedding vendors! In the wedding industry, reading the fine print is important when determining a tip. Many vendors include a percentage of gratitude in the final bill. For instance; in most catering and bar services the tip will be listed as a ‘service charge’. Transportation and valet usually do not include gratuity, so this is something to budget for. Also, many ministers, priests or officiants will not accept a cash tip, but contributing to their ministry is greatly appreciated. To keep it simple, give your planner envelopes prior to the wedding day so you are not bothered.
