Wedding Bartenders & Wait Staff

Planning a wedding seems to be a massive typhoon of details to take care of, between reserving venues, booking entertainment, and selecting floral arrangements, etc., it will definitely be challenging, but it is worth it. At some point in the process you may come to the conclusion that you will need to hire a bartender or wait staff package, perhaps the reception hall you have booked or the catering service you have hired does not offer a bartender or wait staff as part of the package. For whatever reason you will need to hunt down a mobile bartender or wait staff, you should rest assured that Las Vegas has plenty of options available at your disposal. It may be challenging, but there really is no aspect of wedding planning that isn't. Follow our helpful guide below, you should have no issue finding the right service for you.

Before you begin the task of researching, interviewing, and deciding up on a bar tending or waiter service, be sure that you actually need to do so. First, find out if your reception venue has their own staff that will take care of bar tending or if your caterer will provide both wait staff and bar tenders. You may find that your catering company will likely provide waiter service and your venue may even have their own staff to bar tend, or perhaps you'll only need to find bar tenders. This will definitely vary depending on your venue and the services provided by your other vendors.

Now that you have your appointments set, it will be important to bring plenty of questions and the vision of your wedding to the interview to share with each candidate. The first question, and perhaps even the most important, is how experieneced they are with weddings. Ask them on average how many weddings do they service in a year. Depending on what you need, you may be talking with a single bartender, or a manager of a mobile wait staff service. Discuss with them what you will need for the day, and ask them logistical questions. You want to work with a professional service that is capable of servicing your wedding, which is why the emphasis should be put on finding a service that works weddings. Before the conclusion of each appointment, you should have asked all of the questions you had, and feel as though you have a good understanding of what that company can offer. We also suggest asking for a written quote or sample invoice to help you determine which company's service will get you the most out of your money's worth.

Take some time to deliberate over which service will be better for you and your specific wedding needs. Trust your instincts, and you should have no problem deciding on who the right candidate is. Once you are ready to make your choice, accept the contract from the company, and put down a deposit if applicable. With this task handled, you should have no issues with all the serving logistics on the day of your wedding because the bartenders and wait staff you hired are top notch all stars!
