Why tip?

Don't get caught up in what is expected, anything is appreciated.

I recently read a post on tipping on the knot.  Or re-read I should say since it originally inspired another post.  But this time what got my attention was the comments left on the post rather than the post itself. 

There are a lot of angry brides out there.  Angry because they feel that with the exorbitant prices many wedding professionals charge they should not be forced or obligated to tip on top of that.  And I agree.

Read here for my full thoughts on the subject.  I still believe tipping should always be optional.  There are times when it is unavoidable like when it is a stipulation of a catering contract.   But just because tipping is “expected” does not mean you should feel obligated to do it.  Nor should any wedding professional feel entitled to a tip.  And I don’t believe any good one does.

If your wedding professional has provided you exceptional service, delivering beyond what you expected, and if you WANT to, then by all means please tip him or her.  Don’t worry about percentages or it being too little…anything offered will be appreciated.  I guarantee it.

Be Carefree,
