We are still looking at venues so I'm not sure if this would be a question for them, but so far I haven't seen "security" on any of the packages I've seen. We are looking at venues that let us bring outside catering and are considering a mobile bartender service. I've heard that if you provide alcohol at weddings you need to hire a police officer, I've also heard you don't need to hire security unless there is liquor being served and beer and wine is fine. I feel like I've googled my question more than a few ways and I can't find an answer.
Does the venue hire a security guard or do you have to do that privately?
Is one actually mandatory?
