Where my reception is being held I am the only bride that day and am using the entire facility. I have a guest list of two hundred. How many bars should be open and how many bartenders should be used when there are three bars?
Usually venues will require at least 1 bartender per 75 to 100 guests. Once you include mixed drinks at an open bar into the mix (no pun intended!) you will want to have at least 1 bartender extra! With the resources that are available at your venue, to be on the safe side, 2 bars with 2 bartenders each would ensure that none of your guests are left waiting in long lines at your wedding!
