How to Choose the Best Wedding Bar Hire

Your wedding is probably one of the most important highlights in your life. It takes a lot of preparations down to the smallest details. From your theme/motif, the venue, the number of guests, the food you’ll eat, and the drinks you’ll serve.

Let’s face it. Weddings aren’t complete without a mobile cocktail bar. It adds a volume of elegance, sophistication, and style—something your guests wouldn’t be able to resist.

And of course, you deserve to have the best bartender services for your special day. Here are some tips to get the perfect wedding bar hire / cocktail catering.

1.) DETERMINE YOUR BUDGET AND NEEDS

Setting a budget helps you allocate your financial resources effectively. Prior to booking a mobile bar, it’s best to ask yourself first how many guests you’ll have, what type of drinks you want to serve, and how much are you willing to spend for it.

By knowing your needs, you can communicate them clearly to your chosen mobile bar specialist and ensure they can accommodate your preferences on a working budget.

2.) RESEARCH BARTENDER SERVICES IN YOUR AREA

Time to unleash the geek in you! By researching multiple bartender services, you can compare their offerings, pricing, and reviews—thus allowing you to assess their services and determine if they align best with your needs and budget.

A bit of research can also enable you to have a glimpse of their reputation. Look for online reviews, testimonials, and ratings from previous clients. More positive reviews, more likelihood of a positive experience.

3.) CHECK FOR LICENSES AND INSURANCE

Of course, you don’t want cops ruining your wedding day right? That’s why before hiring a mobile bar, make sure they have all the necessary licenses and permits to comply with local and state regulations.

Look out for your safety as well. It’s better if you hire a bartender service with liability insurance that provides protection for you, the venue, and your guests in case of any unfortunate incidents.

4.) ASK FOR REFERENCES

No harm asking previous clients about their experience in hiring a specific mobile bar. This lets you have insights into their quality of service, reliability, punctuality, and customer service. 

Positive reviews and references can give you confidence in the bartending service’s ability to deliver a high-quality experience for your wedding. It will also give you a quick assessment if they can meet your expectations in terms of drink selection, taste, and presentation.

5.) FINALIZE THE DETAILS

Finalizing the details involves reviewing and signing a contract or agreement with the bartending service. This document outlines the agreed-upon terms, including pricing, services provided, start and end times, cancellation policies, and any other relevant details. Having a signed contract provides you with clarity and protection after all.

So, ready to dial the best mobile cocktail bar specialist in town? With over a decade of experience in international hospitality, Shakers on Wheels has been the go-to bartending service provider of soon-to-be husbands and wives in all of Victoria and Melbourne.

I arranged Shakers On Wheels for my 30th party at my home and I honestly can say it was the best decision I could have made! The cocktails were lux and delicious and worth every penny! The set up and service was outstanding and the guests and I loved it! If you're considering using this company for your next event I highly recommend. Jordan and the team were so easy to talk with, provide quotes and information and made the night a smooth process. Thank you so much and I'm still recovering from the hangover 🤣🥰

I worked with Jordan and Oliver for a Fragrances & Cocktails Masterclass on behalf of Libertine Parfumerie. We hosted this event at Myer, for our VIP customers.Oliver was perfect during the event, took care of 26 customers and made 6 different cocktails to match 6 fragrances.We planned the event with Jordan, who helped me a lot with the recipes for the cocktails and was very good at communicating.Thank you again for this successful event! I would recommend Shakers on Wheel to everyone :)
