In the second installment of my “Trust Me I’m A Wedding Planner” series, I’m going to discuss the concept of tipping wedding vendors, inspired by a rant over on Bitchless Bride today that made me laugh, cry and feel compelled to respond and elaborate.
If you haven’t discovered BB yet, buckle up and enjoy. A self-described “straight forward, foul mouthed wedding planner,” BB and her contributors dish it out raw and uncensored like drunken sailors at a wedding – which can be either hilarious or a tough pill to swallow, depending on your perspective. They vent, rant, rave and – in the process – educate the masses. Truth is, foul mouthed or not, they are usually right on target. Perhaps in need of a few cleansing breaths and a couple of cocktails, but still – dead on.
And so it was today when the Tipping Fairy piece shredded the long time reigning wedding authority, referred to as “They Who Shall Not Be Named,” regarding their outdated, ridiculous advice on tipping wedding vendors. Take a sec to read the original post here, then come back and I’ll give it to you without the rage.
