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.
