Today’s helpful guest post comes to us from Sheila Weiner, President and Founder of The Event Group.  Enjoy!

To tip or not to tip, that is the question! When first putting together a wedding day budget, brides should always factor in the total amount of tips to avoid those last minute “surprises” the week before the wedding. Tipping is not only expected from certain vendors, but also serves as a thank you for all of their hard work on your special day! To minimize your wedding weekend to-do’s, place individual tips in sealed envelopes with each vendors’ name on the front of the envelope. Give these envelopes to your wedding planner, maid of honor, best man or a parent and have them take the responsibility of delivering them to the appropriate vendors on your wedding day.

Today’s wedding vendor interview is with Micah and Lish of Neck & Tie Co., creators of bespoke haberdashery! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.
