The All Important Bar 

As you plan every detail of your special day, don’t overlook the importance of creating the ideal bar setup to keep your guests refreshed and entertained throughout your wedding day. We have been lucky enough to have our bars at countless outdoor weddings, so we wanted to share with you some of our top tips for designing the perfect bar for your wedding celebration:

1 – Choose the Right Location

When it comes to setting up your bar whether that be in a tipi, marquee or sail cloth tent, location is key. Consider placing the bar near the entrance or in a central area to ensure easy access for your guests. You’ll also want to make sure there’s enough space around the bar for people to gather and socialize comfortably without feeling cramped. We can offer you the choice of two different internal bar set ups with our wooden bars, or alternatively there is of course our vintage Citroen HY van – The Fabulous Fizz Bar which you can have positioned outside of the structure to give you more space inside and to make the most of the great outdoors. 

2 – Serve your Guests your Favourite Cocktails

Everyone loves a cocktail so it’s always a great idea to offer a selection to your guests. That’s why our couples get to choose their favourite cocktails for us to serve on their big day. And why not have fun changing the names of the cocktails to drinks that are personal to you – we’ve had ‘Dirty Mikes’, Pink Lakes and Terminal 3’s!

3 – Provide a Variety of Drink Options

While serving cocktails are sure to be a hit, be sure to provide a variety of beverage options to accommodate all tastes and preferences. We can provide a full drinks menu for your wedding including beer, cider, fizz, wine, premium spirits and mixers as well as a selection of  non-alcoholic drinks for none drinkers and younger guests. 

4 – Hire Professional Bartenders

Of course we’d say that! But honestly do not underestimate the importance of having a smooth and efficient service throughout your entire wedding day. Not only will professional bartenders keep the drinks flowing, but it gives you the option to offer a large variety of drinks to keep your guests happy including cocktails, while taking away all the stress off you having to provide enough drinks to last all day, being able to serve chill drinks, as well as not having to provide things like bar equipment, ice, garnishes, mixers and glassware. Having professionals on hand to manage the bar leaves you to enjoy every minute of your big day.
