What Is Wedding Liquor Liability Insurance?

Wedding bartender liquor liability insurance is designed to protect businesses that provide alcohol at weddings through an event liquor liability policy.

It is recommended that in addition to your liquor liability policy, you add general liability insurance. If you already have a general liability policy, you can add a wedding bartender liquor liability insurance policy.

According to, 53% of Americans prefer boozy weddings instead of dry ones, and according to The Knot, Americans spend an average of $2,400 on alcohol for their weddings. Needless to say, selling alcohol at weddings can be very profitable for your business, but it’s important to protect those profits with alcohol liability insurance.

Who Needs Liquor Liability Insurance for Weddings?

If you own a business that sells alcohol at weddings (like a mobile bartending or catering business) then you need liquor liability insurance to protect your finances from expensive alcohol-related claims.

However, if you are hosting a wedding and providing or serving alcohol, you will need a host liquor liability policy instead.

What Are Some Examples of Wedding Liquor Liability Claims?

Serving alcohol always involves risks, and doing so at a wedding is no different. Below are a few examples of claims you may face:

  • One of the guests has too much to drink before driving home and causes a car accident that results in serious injuries to them and the people in the other car.
  • While pouring some wine, your employee accidentally spills it on the venue’s carpet. The venue then holds you responsible for replacing the carpet.
  • The groom’s brother drinks more than he should and loses his balance while dancing, crashing into a table and breaking it. The venue holds you responsible to pay for the damages because you served him alcohol.

Some venues may require you to have wedding liquor liability insurance. If you plan on hosting an event or serving alcohol at a wedding, make sure you double-check with the venue on what they require you to have in order to serve alcohol.

Even if your venue doesn’t require liquor liability insurance, we still recommend that you add alcohol insurance for weddings. By adding it to your general liability insurance policy, you can avoid steep claims costs.

What Does Wedding Liquor Liability Insurance Cover?

Wedding liquor liability coverage covers bartenders, event hosts, and businesses that provide alcohol at weddings, offering financial protection from alcohol-related claims. These claims could include one intoxicated wedding guest starting a fight with another, the best man driving away from the venue after having too much to drink and causing an injury accident.

How Much Does Liquor Liability Insurance Cost for Weddings?

Our wedding alcohol insurance base policy price starts at $275 for up to 3 days of coverage. Even if the wedding only takes place over the course of a day, the 2 extra days of coverage ensures you are protected during set-up and teardown days.

The number of people attending the event, the location, and how long you’ll be serving are all factors that may affect the cost of liquor liability insurance for weddings.
