It's so kind that you want to tip your vendors but tricky to know what the right amount is! Here's a guide to help you out!

 

 If you are handing out gratuities, I'd recommend prepping them ahead of time in labeled envelopes to hand over to me the day of to distribute. Pro tip - include a personal thank you note + leave your vendor a review on their website!

Gratuities are labeled below by vendors that expect/require a tip, vendors that aren't always expecting but I'd recommend tipping, and vendors that are optional and up to your discretion.

*Always be sure to check your contracts for service fees and gratuities prior to tipping!
