Hello Ladies

Thanks for the info.

Don't you want to wait and see if they do a good job? I don't think tipping is automatic. I think depends whether or not someone went above and beyond. If the DJ or photographer or whoever does a really good job, then I would think another $100 would be reasonable, but I do think tips should be earned.

I was thinking the same thing. Alot of these tips seem kind of high. Especially for DJs that own their own DJ company and get the full amount of your payment.
