The future Mrs. Dreamer and I were talking last night about whether or not we are supposed to tip for certain wedding services we hired people to perform. She had read on some website that you are expected to tip the dj and hair and makeup people. I hadn't thought of this before but it makes sense that they would expect a tip. However, I don't believe they should.
For one reason, we have hired an individual person to be the dj at our upcoming wedding. The $700 or so price that we agreed upon will go directly to him, not some company he works for. Therefore I don't believe he should recieve an extra tip. Same goes for the hair and makeup person that future Mrs. Dreamer has hired. We are not paying a company who then sends out an employee. We are paying the person directly and they are keeping all the profit themselves.
What do you think? Am I missing something? Should we tip for certain wedding services? What services would require a tip? Any suggestions and thoughts are welcome!
