Why Tip Your Vendors?

At the end of the day, everyone wants your big day to be spectacular. But, one of the most special days of your lives together is truly not possible without the attendance of your vendors. Whether it be the caterer, florist or photographer, the work they do and the hours they spend to help execute your dream wedding is critical to its success. They often go above and beyond to accommodate each couple’s needs and tipping is not only a way to show your gratitude, but is a way to express your token of appreciation.
