I work for a very large staffing company and tonight I worked an 8 hour wedding, in which I had to prepare specialty drinks for the bride and groom, and serve 100+ people at an all night open bar.
I was told no tip jar because the wedding planner would “take good care” of me.
After the cocktail hour, I was told I had 15 minutes to move my entire set up to the main area of the wedding. I had to haul 30 or so bottles of wine, 2 kegs, and about 20 various bottles of liquor to the new setup.
Throughout the night many of the guests offered me a tip, but I had to refuse as it was in the contract.
The end of the night comes along and the wedding planner hands me a $10 and 2 $5’s and said she looked forward to hiring us again…
