DIY -vs- Mambo Mobile Bars, The Wedding Edition

There’s so much to plan when you start to think about your wedding day, let’s take the confusion out of the drinks!

There are a variety of drink options when it comes to planning your wedding. But how do you know which one’s right for you? If you’ve never planned a wedding before you might not even know the options, read on to learn more or contact us to talk through your plans.

Daytime drinks – (Arrival/Welcome/Wedding Breakfast)

DIY – provide your own drinks.

You can choose to supply the drinks for your guests during the daytime, typically this is one or two arrivals drinks (after the ceremony, unless you want glasses under seats & be aware some celebrants won’t conduct a ceremony if there are), wine for the table and something to toast with.

Things to consider: Who is serving this? If it’s a help yourself station – who’s keeping it topped up? Where’s the ice coming from to keep it chilled? Will your caterer serve your drinks? Will they provide glassware for drinks they’re not providing? If you want fancier than fizz are they mixologist trained? Who’s collecting the glasses afterwards, counting them to make sure they’re all there and boxing them up? Do you have time to return them after the wedding? What about breakages?

*Spoiler alert, take advantage of Mambo’s day hire package so we take care of all of it and have your day run seamlessly, we’ll even open the cash bar early so your guests can purchase alternative drinks*

The bar is fully stocked with bottled beer/ales (as standard, kegs are also available), wine, prosecco, spirits & mixers, soft drinks and of course cocktails. Cocktails are chosen by each couple from our extensive menu. Our Pour Decisions tasting sessions are the perfect opportunity to personalise your menu and chat through the final details of your big day.

Free bar

If you’d prefer to pay for all of your guests drinks then there are a couple of options to explore here. You can hire Mambo as a dry hire package. You source the alcohol and we will provide the bar, the glassware, the staff, the ice and the expertise to serve your chosen drinks. Alternatively you can invest in one of our all inclusive packages for the evening and leave Mambo to provide everything, for those with the Fear of Running Out there’s unlimited options too.
