I hired Danielle as a Day-Of-Coordinator (DOC) for my 130-people wedding in Elk Grove, which included a ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Long review coming up, but my take-home message is this: if you're on the fence about getting a DOC for your wedding, DO IT and get Danielle onboard! ーーーーーーー Some background on me: I do software QA for a living, and since I'm used to organizing, planning, and bringing teams of people together, I planned the majority of the wedding by myself. From finding all the individual vendors to creating detailed week-of and day-of timeline from online resources, I felt like I had everything under control. However, about a month before the wedding, a couple of my recently married friends told me how much they'd have enjoyed the day more if they had someone else running the show. I started reaching out to planners/coordinators everywhere, but everyone seemed to include services I didn't need (like all the planning that I'd already done), and/or were exorbitantly expensive. Enter Danielle. From the first meet-up, she was punctual, well-dressed, professional, and just had a calming demeanor. She was responsive and easy to reach out, as well. Danielle listened to my concerns about just wanting an affordable coordinator to run the day as I planned, and she offered to do exactly what I was looking for -- for just $600 because we were local! Let me tell you that it was a worthy investment, even for someone who felt as ready for the big day as I was. Danielle was there bright and early, helped coordinate so the bride and groom didn't accidentally see each other, helped with setup, kept us on time, and was at the venue till the very end to make sure all the breakdown and clean up was taken care of. She really made the day low-stress and enjoyable. Thank you Danielle!See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find a good bartender?

Put some time on your calendar to research and compare top-rated bartenders near you online. Start by looking at their ratings and services. For example, some bartending services will provide a waitstaff, glassware, ice, coolers, food and more.

Next, look at their photos of past events and read the customer reviews. Find feedback on the bartenders’ services. Did they offer fair pricing? Did they show up on time to set up? Did they bring all of the appropriate drinks, cups, supplies and decorations? Did they interact politely with the party guests and provide a pleasant overall experience? And did they do the agreed-upon cleanup afterward?

Narrow down your top choices, and start contacting the bartenders. Ask for cost estimates for your event, and tell them how many people will be attending, what type of event it is and what services you require. You should also ask them questions about their experience.

Bartenders may need a license in your state, county or city to work at a private party. Make sure they’re properly certified before you hire anyone.

Do bartenders need to be licensed?

Certain counties, cities and states may require licensing. Check your local government’s regulations before starting your search.

In many cases, you might want to choose a bartender who has a license and/or certification. If you’re considering hiring a bartender for an upcoming event or a special occasional, check their online profiles to find out what credentials they have. If you can’t find the information online, don’t hesitate to ask them directly when requesting to receive free estimates.

How much does it cost to hire a bartender for a private party?

Hiring a bartender for a private party typically costs between $270 and $390 in total. On an hourly basis, expect to pay at least $40 to $60 per hour, as well as a flat fee. How much you’ll pay, however, depends on the time of year or day, the size of the party and other factors. Get in touch with a few bartenders near you and request a free estimate — it’s the only way to get an accurate idea of how much private bartending services will cost you.
