Free-lance Bartender?

Leanne, on May 15, 2019 at 15:19 Posted in Plan a wedding 0 4

Hi everyone, have any of you hired a free-lance bartender, or just someone with Smart Serve (or equivalent outside of ON) for an event or your wedding?

I don't really need a bartender, because what we intend to do is put bottles of wine on the tables for guests to serve themselves, and then have two signature drinks plus non-alcoholic drinks served by someone. That person would need to have Smart Serve certification, but I don't need anything fancy.

Have you done this before? Did it work out well?

    My brother did this and the guy was great. It was someone he knew, but still you can definitely find one for hire and it will save you some money for sure.

    Like Becky said, as long as they are reputable it’ll be fine.

    my FH used to bartend through law school and got hired for lots of events! Usually they are a bit cheaper as well!

    I have done this for multiple events and it worked fine! I just asked someone I knew if they had anyone they new that way found out if reputable. I would make a post on your facebook and just see if anyone you know who isn't invited has it you could hire
