I can’t be the only one who’s heard about tipping your vendors and wondered if people are really doing this.  I can’t remember where I found this screen shot (you can click on it to make it bigger), but I was looking around about tips and this popped up.  Are you guys doing this much tipping?

For us, it’d come out like this:

Bar: $100

Waitstaff: $40

Reception site manager: $210-$280

DJ: $25

Caterer: $300-$400

So between $575 – $745 just on tips!!!   Wha?!!!  That’ll throw a wrench in the ole budget!

Am I the only cheap person that thinks that this is crazy?  What would your tip totals be?


bachelor party?

Have you seen this movie?  It’s ridiculous in its funniness.  I’ll admit to having a somewhat juvenile taste in movies, especially when it comes to comedies, but this one is a classic.  The premise is four friends go to Vegas for a bachelor party and chaos ensues…I actually cried because I was laughing so hard.  If you haven’t seen it…see it.

So, the bachelor party.  What do you think?  For it?  Not so much?  Have you and your sweetie talked about it?  Early on The Mister and I talked about it and decided that if he wanted a Vegas bachelor party, then he should have him a Vegas bachelor party!  I trust him (I don’t know if I’d trust whatever knuckleheaded friends he’d take with him), I know that he loves me (but beer goggles know no boundaries), he’ll have a blast for sure (plus he’d hate me if I pouted about him going), and probably most important to him…his boys won’t think he’ s a punk.

But you can’t plan for crazy.  And from what I understand, crazy is what Vegas specializes in.

Still…I’m in.  If that’s what he wants, then he should go for it.

What are you and your honey doing about the bachelor party?
