Bar Service Series: Drinks

Wedding Planning Tips


This blog post was originally drafted for the catering series but we are bringing back the bar service series for a moment! Today we are focused on questions to ask about your bar service – –

Do you provide alcoholic beverages and bartenders? Can you accommodate specialty cocktails?

What brands of alcohol will be served?

Can we provide the alcohol and you provide the bar labor?

Do you charge a corkage fee if we provide our own wine or champagne?

How do you charge for alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages? Per consumption or per person? Which is more cost-effective?

Is the champagne toast after the ceremony included in your meal packages or is it extra?

Will your staff serve the wine with dinner?

How long will alcohol be served?

Is coffee and tea service included with the per-person meal charge? What brands of each do you offer and do they include decaf and herbal tea options?
