You’ve been thinking about getting married for a while now. You’re a great couple and would like to start your life together with a big, extravagant wedding. You’ve also been thinking about having a bar for your guests to use, but you’ve been wondering how to keep the line from getting too long and the bar from being too crowded. If you’re going to have a reception, you might as well take advantage of it.
A typical wedding can involve hundreds of guests, and if you are on the bar waitressing staff, then you will likely get to know a lot of them by the end of the night. However, there are some guests that you may not recognize because you never see them at the wedding, and that is because they are not invited. I have done weddings and run into a few of these guests, most of whom are not my favourite people, because you have to be very careful what you say if they are at the bar.
No matter what your wedding day is, you will be up to your elbows in traditions, rituals, and recipes that have been passed down from previous generations. And while they may not always seem important, they are essential to the experience of becoming a married couple.
The wedding bar is almost as old as the weddings themselves. As soon as the party starts, guests start lining up at the bar, but why is that? The main reason is that it’s a great place to meet new people, relax with friends, and enjoy free drinks. These are all great reasons to keep your bar free!
Tips To Keep Your Wedding Bar Free (Here Is What You Should Avoid)
Pick up any wedding planning book, and you’ll see a recurring theme: guests are coming to you for drink specials, so you’ll want to avoid the dreaded bar line. Like most advice, this one has a grain of truth to it, but it goes a little too far.
Brides and grooms often want their wedding bar to be as free of drink runners as their reception, but with the number of guests they will have at their reception, they know they can’t enforce this. However, there are plenty of ways to prevent a line at the wedding bar.
You should never be the reason that guests wait in a long line at a wedding reception. If there are guests who need to see the bartender get their drink order, then the bartender should be able to wait. Another good idea is to tell guests that they don’t need to order their drinks at the wedding reception bar. If a guest wants a drink, they can go get it there.
The key to preventing a line at the wedding bar is to make sure your guests are all in the know. While it doesn’t take much to create a line at the bar, it always starts with one person. The key to stopping this girl is to have everyone on the guestlist pass out a card. The card should include a picture of the bride, the bar name, and the time and address the card is supposed to be given out.
Keeping your wedding day on track is a challenge, but there are ways to make your big day more enjoyable. For many, the all-important bar at the reception can be a headache, and if the situation is not handled well, the groom may receive a few nasties looks from family and friends.
As weddings get more and more elaborate, the wedding bar is becoming an increasingly important part of the day. A bar is traditionally a place where newlyweds can drink as much as they want without worrying about making a scene—until the night goes on.
Make sure you have more than one bar in your reception venue, having only one location to order drinks with one bartender. That way, guests will have a drink in their hands from the get-go and won’t be rushing to the bar to overwhelm the bartenders with orders. At this point, these are some tips to prevent the bar lines of your wedding.
