Things You Need
It’s kind of like the fine print but without the surprises! There are, however, a few things you really will need and here they are:
- If you are serving libations you will need to purchase a Banquet License from the State of Washington Liquor Board – cost is $10. It clearly states you are taking responsibility for the consumption actions of your guests both during and after the party. You cannot serve alcoholic beverages at your reception without it. It allows the consumption of libations for the reception and only from the service area. It absolutely does not permit “car bars” and we will enforce it during your entire time with us with or without a Banquet License. A link is provided HERE for your convenience.
- You will also need to obtain Event Insurance to protect yourself from any liability for your event. We recommend talking to your insurance agent first or wedsafe.com. Your event must be insured no later than 7 days prior to your event and documents must be provided showing your coverage no later than your scheduled rehearsal time.
- If you have any questions or concerns about these items please call our office directly at 509-276-7636 to discuss it with Shannon. We really want every aspect of your experience as a bride or a guest to be truly fantastic and that includes ironing out details like these and making sure we’re all on the same page on your day. Thank you, again, for letting us be a part of your event!
