Requirements: Open Bar & Insurance
We want you and your guests to enjoy themselves while celebrating your nuptials, however, we must take certain precautions to ensure responsible alcohol consumption. Please familiarize yourself with our policies.
If you choose to supply your own alcohol it must be an open-bar and no money can be exchanged between bartenders and guests. Kylan Barn will supply a list of 15-20 Maryland TIPS certified bartenders to help regulate over-serving and underage drinking. The bartenders are not employees of Kylan Barn, just trusted individuals who understand the business of alcohol. It is your responsibility to coordinate with them and negotiate cost of service. They will charge between $150-$250 per event depending on the date and time of year. If you opt against an open bar and choose to purchase alcohol services through your caterer, they are required to have a Wicomico County liquor license and a restaurant.
We require you to purchase event insurance only if you supply your own alcohol or you include your pet in your ceremony. However, we do recommend all couples to have it. We have worked out all the details with Gary Marshall Insurance Agency. Your policy is estimated to cost $50- $250 and covers any situation that could arise during your event
