Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a great weekend! :banana:

My DP and I are flying out to Disney on 26 Feb (PC, AKL and WL!) and during our stay we will be getting married at the Royal Wedding Chapel along International Drive. My question is, does anyone know the policy on tipping the guys at the chapel? I think they may own it and I always thought that you don't tip the owners of the business, only employees? Has anyone got married there, or know anyone who has, that can shed some light for me?

Thanks very much!

Iv'e never heard of tipping someone at the chapel. I mean are they doing other things for you besides performing the wedding? Photographer or something of that sort?

Thanks for the reply! We have a photographer and a limo driver booked and figure that they will be tipped? Just wasn't sure about the people at the chapel? :confused3

I really don't want to offend anyone by forgetting to tip someone that I should!!

Thanks again! :thumbsup2

No problem. I would hate that too if I forgot someone but if all they are doing is performing the ceremony than no, no tips. But if they have employees that are helping you do your hair make up, helping you dress then I guess yes. Oh and Congratulations !

Thanks for your advice Pixierella! I so appreciate it!

One final question - promise!! Do you agree that the photographer and the limo driver should be given a tip? So sorry to be a pain, but I am hoping to organise the tips ready for the big day so I don't have a mad panic before/after the ceremony! :bride:

No worries Gems. If they are not the owners of the business then yes, they get a tip. I had someone come in to do my make up and I did not tip her since she owned her own little business. But my limo guy and photographer, absolutely
