Gratuity is always tricky - it is supposed to be an expression of appreciation and great service. And for big events like a wedding, allotting room in your budget for gratuity is very important. To help you plan ahead our general rule of thumb is:
-15% of all-inclusive packages
-18-22% of regular food and beverage service
At Opal 28, we are proud to not include gratuity in your bill because we admittedly feel that gratuity should be given based on merit only after a job well done.
