Wedding Vendors: Who Distributes Wedding Tips after the Wedding Ceremony?

Q:

Please tell me who is responsible for giving a wedding gratuity to the minister, organist, and soloist?

A:

Prewedding, the groom usually assembles the envelopes and it's the best man's job to give the officiant his or her fee just after the ceremony. Ceremony musicians should also be tipped right after the service -- appoint someone to do this so you don't have to worry about it.

What's the Basic Wedding Reception Timeline?

I'm not certain about the order of events at the wedding reception. Could you please give a rough timeline of the following events: receiving line, cocktail hour, first dance, champagne toast, best man and maid of honor speeches, dinner and cake cutting? I feel clueless!
