Planning Your Wedding?
Is here to help!
If you're considering hiring a private bar tending service for your wedding, it's a terrific idea. You may not know where to begin, and that is very understandable, after all it is a profession that many of us know very little about. Luckily, there are many fantastic companies in the area that offer bar tending services. Here you'll find our tips for searching for and finding the right company in the simplest way.
Before you begin your search, you should have already determined that it's something you'll even have to do. Some venues have in-house bar tending services or they work exclusively with one company, both of which will save you the time of having to do this yourself. However, if you're able to choose your own company, this guide will be helpful. To start, you are going to need to create a list of possible hires. You can ask people you know for suggestions or search online. They can help you steer clear of companies they have had bad experiences with in the past.
You should now have a list of potential hires. The next step is calling to inquire about the companies. Ask about prices - you should know how many people will be at your wedding because larger weddings will require more staff and that will obviously affect pricing. Also check their availability on your wedding date. Once you have found companies that meet your requirements, there are some things that you should ask them. First of all, ask about the training and experience of the staff. Having multiple years of experience is a plus, but is not a necessity. The more experienced the staff is, the more likely they are to provide exceptional service. Next, you need to know whether or not the company has general liability insurance. Those two things stated above are very important, but there are other things you should ask about. Ask questions such as, how soon will the staff arrive? Will they provide all of their own supplies? What is their policy on uniform? Make sure that you have a clear understanding about pricing and gratuity. If the gratuity is not included in the final cost, you must determine how it will be paid.
The final step in this process is to book the company for your reception. More often than not, you'll have to pay a deposit and sign a contract. It's very important to read the contract and make sure all the pertinent information is in there. Service date and time, what those services include, and what the services entail as well as a detailed cost breakdown. Never sign a contract you disagree with, or do not understand.
If you follow these steps, you'll have an easy time finding a bar tending company for your wedding reception and your guests will be happy!
