A common question couples tend to ask is if they should hire a professional bartending service or tackle it themselves with the help of friends and family. At Hilltop, we want you to have the freedom to customize your experience. Therefore, if you feel confident taking this on yourself we are here to cheer you on. However, before you make that decision we have broken down a couple pros to why you should hire a pro.
✓ Certified and Insured - There is a lot of responsibility when serving alcohol and you can rest easy knowing they have this covered. This is their business and they take pride in doing it well.
✓ Taking the Guesswork Out - A professional bartending company knows exactly how much alcohol to purchase based on your guest count and bar type. They will work with you to determine just how much of each item you will require and you will not have to fear running out of anything.
✓ More than just a Bartender - They set-up the bar, they keep tables bussed and clear of empty drinks. They close the bar during speeches and other key moments to respect you and your day.
✓ Overconsumption - A professional bartending company knows when to cut someone off without creating a scene. You want your guests to enjoy the bar and have fun without getting too drunk for your sake (and theirs) and sometimes you need that professional touch and experience in this area.
We know we have said it before, and we will say it again, central Alberta is home to some mighty fine businesses that we can personally recommend to you, including Bartenders; see our list below.
