How Much to Tip Your Wedding Vendors

Before tipping anyone, check carefully to see what is included in the bill … limo companies, caterers, and venues providing valet and coat check services may already have a line item for gratuity! 
  • Caterers: Look for a gratuity line item for both the service staff and the bartender. If it’s not included, leave thirty-five to fifty dollars per server and for the catering manager, and 15 to 20 percent of the bar bill for the bartender(s). 
  • Limo: Leave 15 to 20 percent of the bill. 
  • Musicians: Tip each musician twenty five dollars or more. 
  •  DJ: A DJ should receive 15 percent of his fee, if they do not own their own company. 
  • Hair & Makeup: Tip the stylists 15 to 20 percent of their fees. 
  • Valet: Tip the valets fifty cents to one dollar per car. 
  • Coat Check: Coat checkers should receive fifty cents to one dollar per coat
