I have some questions

Aside from paying my coordinator should I be getting her a gift as well? Do we give a gift to any of our other vendors? Do we need to include our vendors in our list of flowers needed? How many dessert options should we put on the dessert buffet? How ma.y candy options do we need to have? I have pies- apple and cherry, cookies- sugar, peanut butter and chocolate chip and for candy I have jelly beans, reeses pieces, m&ms, nerds, suckers, jolly ranchers, and mini candy bars. We will ha e a grooms cake and each guest will have an individual cake which our baker says a serving size is 3-4 bites.

 good questions.

I don't think the vendors need a gift. If your coordinator went above and beyond, I suppose you can or you can give her a lil extra cash when you pay her.

I wouldn't include them w/ the flowers.

Reg the dessert table, not everyone will have but its best to have more than less, so i guess it depends on your guest count. Also, you have a variety so that's good as well. Someone mentioned to me when getting cake, you should get 20slices less as not everyone eats cake. That's a thought I suppose.

 I Googled it and found some good links with tipping etiquette

Our coordinator was included in our venue, so she was included in our tip. A gift would be nice, but not neccessary. Be sure to check your contracts with vendors, sometimes tip is already factored in.

I definietely would not include the vendors when it comes to flowers.

I've read that you should plan for 8oz. of candy per guest. Soudns like you have lots of goodies to me!
