Simply put, we are not allowed to apply for your wedding liquor license. It is technically not possible for us to do this, because we are not hosts of your event. LCRB only allows hosts/organizers of the wedding to apply for the wedding liquor license.
As the host of the wedding, couples, or a close family member (usually Father or Mother of the bride or groom) are allowed to apply for it. The bartenders and the host/organizer both need to hold a valid Special Event Server Certificate, or Serving-it-Right Certificate.
Liquor License applications can be submitted online and the majority of the Liquor Licenses are approved immediately after submission.

By applying for your own liquor license, you determine the price of the drinks at the bar. We offer bartenders for hire, and we sell at the prices you want us to. After the event, we e-transfer you the amount for the drinks sold.
Weddings are expensive, and liquor is one of the big expenses at each wedding. Couples who want to recover some of the costs for their weddings via liquor sales are thrilled they can do so by hiring an independent top-rated professional bartending company like Elite Events BC.
By applying for your own liquor license, you, the client, gets to collect the revenue from the bar, instead of being charged $8-$10 per drink by a caterer with a liquor license.
Almost all weddings require a liquor license. The only exception is, if the wedding (or event) is held at private place/property.
