Tipping Your Wedding Vendors

Should you tip your wedding vendors? There are two sides to every debate and this is one that is included.
Martha Stewart Weddings has a guide but take it for what it is worth… In the service industry, giving a tip for service above and beyond is always appreciated. Doesn’t matter what role they played or how much you tip them. If they offered outstanding service and helped your Wedding day become a memory that will last a lifetime, then showing a little appreciation is a thoughtful gesture.
