Backyard wedding: bartender/liquor license

Hi-

My FH and I are leaning more towards a backyard wedding. We would like to have a bartender serving the quests vs self serve for many safety reasons. I am curious to know if there is a way to have a company come provide this vs needing to buy all liquor prior and now pretty much having open bar. Interested in what others have done or what you did to make it fully legal and not run into issues the day of or end up with fines.

Kindly,
Cassie

    You can look on thumbtack for bartending companies. Just be sure they have insurance and everything. You dont want to be liable for any accidents!

    If you're hiring a bar-tending service, they will have the necessary insurance and licensing. If you're hiring a freelance/individual bartender, you will have to provide all the liquor, but as long as you don't charge for it (which you shouldn't do at a wedding anyway) you don't need a liquor license. Insurance in that scenario can usually be added for a couple hundred dollars as a rider on just about any existing insurance policy you have.
