When it comes to tipping wedding professionals, many of my couples will tip the following people:

  1. Wedding Planner or Venue Planner
  2. Maître d’
  3. Bartender
  4. DJ or Band Leader
  5. Officiant, Minister, Priest or Celebrant
  6. Photographer or Videographer
  7. Limo Driver

It is best to wait until after these professionals perform their service to determine whether or not they should receive a tip. I have been to many weddings where the DJ does not do a great job or the Maître d’ is not organized to ensure the wedding ceremony goes off in a timely and orderly manner.
