I’m having my wedding at a friend’s barn that she does weddings at, she doesn’t care if we do a BYOB but she said if we want HER to be the one keeping the built in bar going all night we need to get the insurance for alcohol liability put on for that day/night. I have no idea what to search for so does anyone have any recommendations on who to go through? We are homeowners so that’s another option as well.
Check your car/homeowner’s insurance first. Sometimes they can do a bundle, which is cheaper. Otherwise, there are companies that exclusively do event/wedding insurance. Wedding Wire has some resources, but your insurance agent might be able to give you a lead.
We spent about 130 for insurance for the whole weekend at our venue. It's a 1mil liability policy that has alcohol liability included. We just googled certificate of liability and went through them until we found one that fit our venue requirements and our budget.
