Paying Gratuity to Florist/Decorator?

Hi ladies, just want to know are we suppose to pay gratuity to the wedding florist or decorator?  If so, what is the going rate? Thanks!

i did not. so if we were- then whoops. :) i read once that you are only supposed to tip people that don't own their own business. so you wouldn't need to tip the photog, florist, stuff like that. but i'm sure if they do a fabulous job and you feel like tipping them it would still be a nice gesture......

Yeah, don't tip the florist themselves. Delivery man, maybe.

Typical flower budget for most weddings is anywhere from $1,000 to $2000 or roughtly 10% of your floral budget.  If you think they did a good job, one of the best ways to compensate them is by paying them in cash(if you trust them).  Giving them an extra $25 to $50 is also acceptable.   Keep in mind that most florists don't work by the hour, unless they work in a shop.  If you are going with a florist that works out of their own home(which typically keeps your total flower cost lower), then the extra money and/or the cash is greatfully accepted.

its a nice thing to do however if you are strapped for cash a nice thank you card with one of your favors, or a small gift will do. Its nice to let vendors know you appreciate them. Happy Planning!
