Wedding Budget: Who to Tip at a Wedding (and How Much)

Tipping is customary — and expected. Here’s a list of who to tip at a wedding (and how much)

(page 1 of 2)

Tipping is a custom that most of us grow up with. If we get good service (and sometimes even when we don’t), we know that under certain circumstances it’s appropriate to leave a tip. It’s become so much a part of our etiquette over the years that most people wouldn’t ever consider not leaving a tip — and only when service is really bad do we not do so. Things are a bit complicated when tipping becomes expected as opposed to being earned.

Dear Wedding Guru: “When creating our budget, we want to make sure that we include tips — but we’re not sure what’s expected of us. Please help. We don’t want to make a mistake!”
