    What is the consensus on tipping sales coordinator, wedding planner and day of coordinators? We are doing an escape package and have no clue if it is standard to tip these individuals. The Wedding guide seems to suggest only for exceptional service but doesn't list any real guide as to how much. I do realize that the sales consultant is not permitted to accept cash tips.

    We were Escape too and we just tipped our Planner (who was also our Day-Of Coordinator). Actually, we sent her a gift after the wedding. We also tipped our limo drivers, DJ, and hair and makeup. Other than that, everyone else just got the standard rate.

    We are planning on tipping the following people:
    - DFAP Photographer (Wedding plus 3 Park Shoots)
    - Musician
    - Hair/Makeup
    - Videographer (although on the fence about this one)
    - Limo (How much did you tip if you don't mind me asking?)

    We aren't sure if our planner is going to be our day-of coordinator so we weren't sure what typically happens. We also plan on sending a gift to our sales consultant as she actually went over and beyond what we expected and really helped us out of a jam.

    YES I wish I would have thought to bring a tip for our musician. I still cringe at the fact we didn't give him one. He was PHENOMENAL and totally deserved one. I tried to make up for it by sending high praise to anyone and everyone I could at Disney...hopefully some of this eventually got back to him.

    I ended up tipping the limo drivers $25 each (we had 2). My dad said I was crazy and should have only gave them $10 lol but $25 felt appropriate for me.

    As far as the day of planner, it should be the same as your current planner. I was worried about that as well, but I asked around and most people said they had the same person except in a few rare cases where their planner was ill or something like that. Otherwise, I would count on it being the same person.
