These are just guidelines to tipping vendors, officiants, staff, etc. Take a look at your contracts, many may include a 15 to 20 percent tip already built in. Make sure you don’t double tip. If the tip is not in the contract, you may want to add it in so it becomes one less item to worry about. You do not have to tip a vendor who owners his or her own business but if the vendor has gone above and beyond the call, show your gratitude with a tip. If you have not received the service you requested, you do not have to tip. Put someone in charge of handing out the tips.
