Do you really need to hire a bartender for your wedding? Why isn’t that something that a friend can do? What are the benefits of even having one?
There’s a few great reasons to consider hiring a professional to tend your libations at your celebration:
- IT IS PART OF THE EXPERIENCE
A professional bartender will literally keep the merriment flowing–which means your guests won’t have to wait in long lines to pick their poison. The right bartender will also be able to make a wider selection of cocktails and mocktails, meaning a better selection for your guests besides just wine and beer (not that there is anything wrong with either of those). Whether your bar is open or cash, a professional hire in this realm will make everything a little more enjoyable and fun for your guests.
- LESS ORDERING ON YOUR END
A hired bartender also means more fun for you, as you will not have to guess how much of this liquor or that beer you might need; they’re in the business, so they’ll have a better idea of what volume or quantity will be required for your guest count. That’s one less thing for your to have to guess, and that will be a definite win as you get deep into wedding planning.
- IT’S ALSO ONE LESS SET UP AND TAKE DOWN FOR YOU
At the end of your wedding, there will be a million and ten things for you to take down and remove; hiring a bartender will be one less thing. A good hire will come in, set up, do their job, and then take it all with them when they go. It doesn’t get much better than that.
It might seem like an unnecessary or extra expense, but there are definitely good reasons to consider hiring a professional bartender for your wedding. Consider doing a quick Google search of “Bartenders near me” to see if you can connect with someone who will wonderful shake (or stir) up your wedding entertainment!
