5 Reasons Hiring Bartenders Will Take Your Wedding To The Next Level  & Keep Your Guests Feeling Like VIPs

Hiring Bartenders Is A Choice You Won’t Regret

Whether you want your wedding to be a party to remember or an elegant affair, having a memorable bar is something you don’t want to overlook. When it comes to planning your wedding bar, you have options. Whether you decide on an open bar or a cash bar, hiring bartenders is something you will never regret. 

The importance of bar services at a wedding is often overlooked. Experienced bartenders help to create the atmosphere for your party. Leaving guests to serve themselves or putting your bestie in charge of the bar is just not a good idea. Running the bar service at a wedding is a lot of work! Not convinced?

Here are 5 reasons why you should hire a bartender for your wedding

Your Bartenders Need Certifications and Insurance

Serving alcohol comes with a lot of responsibility. Hiring professional bartenders should take some of the stress off your shoulders. They are legitimate businesses and, as such, are required to have insurance, certification and often a certain level of experience to serve at your venue. This means that no matter where your wedding is taking place, you will be sure that your bar service are legit and your bartenders have the experience to handle anything.

Your Bartenders Do More Than Pour Drinks

Is your ceremony on site? Do you require a champagne toast? Dinner wine corked and served?  Bar closed during speeches? Do you need staffing to bus tables and clear drinks? Do you need a bar rental? Glassware? Full set up and take down?

Your bartenders are there for all of that! They will take care of everything so that you and your guests won’t have to worry about anything. Talk about VIP service!

Take Math Out Of The Equation! Your Bartenders Know How To Stock A Bar So You Won’t Run Out

Bartenders have the experience to know how much alcohol to purchase for your wedding based on guest count,  bar type, and any special touches you have planned like a cocktail hour, for example. They can also help you figure out what other supplies to buy. Running out of ice, garnishes, and mixers is not something you want to deal with. Give Your Guests the VIP Treatment With Signature Cocktails.
