Tipping Ettiquette

Here's the dirty little secret about tipping your wedding professionals and service providers - there's no hard and fast rule.  Depending on the vendor and your contract, gratuity may be included in the overall bill.  For hotels and catering companies this is usually itemized as a "Service Charge".  Ask your service provider to explain all of the charges on your invoice to help you determine if a gratuity charge has been included already.  

In general, if your wedding professional exceeded your expectations, did a fantastic job and helped make your day perfect, then it is nice to show them a little bit of monetary gratitude - but it is not required.  Refer to my handy table as a guideline when sorting out those final payments and added tips!
