We’re having a Sunday afternoon wedding reception next month. For the cocktail hour we’re having champagne with a variety of juices for a make-your-own-mimosa bar, and then at the reception we’re having wine and beer only. We’ll have a champagne toast later, too.
A friend of a friend has offered to serve as bartender for us – we’re required to have someone who can monitor the drinks to prevent underage or overly intoxicated individuals from drinking, but don’t need a licensed bartender. He’ll just be handing out beer bottles/glasses and pouring champagne/wine. I want to pay him fairly (and am increbily thankful for him stepping in!), but i have no idea how much! For reference, we’ll have around 50 guests adn thethe ceremony is at 12, with the cocktail hour and reception from 12:30-430 or 5.
