We're here to help you!
We know that planning a wedding is all about the details. And one of the details that is often overlooked by couples is who is going to mix and serve the drinks at their reception. Do not and we repeat do not take it for granted that your caterer or your reception venue is going to supply you with a bartender. So, there is a chance that you might be on the lookout for a mobile bartender. And not just anyone who has been behind a bar at a pub or Buffalo Wild Wings. What you need for your wedding is a true professional who can not only make quality drinks, but also help your guests to have the time of their lives. Finding someone who has those kind of skills and personality doesn't just happen by luck, it take time and effort. You need to start doing some homework on quality bartender candidates in the Boise area. Then it is well worth the effort that it takes to interview each quality candidate and narrow down your search to that perfect fit, to the professional who you so richly deserve on your big day.
So, you are probably wondering, what is the best way to come up with some quality bartenders to consider for your wedding needs? There are a few ways. Try the world wide web. Do a Google search for “mobile bartenders in the Boise area.” Start looking at each website to determine who looks like a decent candidate. Your wedding vendors that you have hired would also be a great contact. And your family, friends and coworkers might be able to tell you about a bartender they hired or at least experienced. When you have a few names worthy of consideration, call each one and see if they have your wedding date open on their calendar. If they do, have a sit down with them and talk about your wedding needs and their potential ability to fill them.
Find out about their background. How many weddings have they worked in the last year? The last thing you need for this position is a newbie. To make sure things go well, they need to have experience and have had the proper training. What drinks can they make? Do they come off as a professional? Do they speak clearly? What kind of insurance do they carry? This is a necessity, they should carry at least General Liability Insurance. Have they had responsible vendor training? This kind of training helps them to understand how to prevent possible bad situations from happening with guests that start drinking too much. What time do they usually show up to a wedding in order to setup? What will they be providing? What do they need for you to provide? For instance, do you need to provide a bar or do they have one that is mobile? Talk to them about the list of drinks you want available. Do they have any suggestions as to drinks that could be added. How much will their fee be? Do not try to hire on the cheap. This is an important vendor and you want your guests receiving great service and exceptional products. We suggest making gratuity from you or your guests a part of the deal because of the motivation factor. Believe us when we tell you, if you get this hire right, your guests will be very grateful.
