When it comes to planning and organising your wedding, hiring the services of a security firm probably won’t be one of your key priorities. Things like booking a venue, organising the food and inviting your guests are sure to be front of mind instead.
But given the anticipation and expectation of the day itself, it might not be such a bad idea after all…
A cocktail of large crowds, uninvited guests, emotions running high and a free-flowing supply of alcohol could quickly turn the most memorable day of your life into one you’d rather forget.
However, this doesn’t mean to say you need to remove or restrict any of the above, as it probably wouldn’t be much of a wedding otherwise.
Making the case for wedding security
A trained security guard can be used in a number of different ways at a wedding, from welcoming guests to making sure things don’t get out of control.
Seeing as many security officers are deployed in retail environments as the first point of contact for customers, they can be a friendly face for your wedding guests on first arrival. Security personnel can also monitor the guest list and show people to their seats.
As the day progresses, the presence of security will ensure everyone has a good time. Provide officers with any vital information before hand and they’ll be able to answer guest questions in a prompt, professional manner.
When the evening rolls around and the celebrations get into full swing, security officers will feel even more at home. Minor arguments (and even major brawls) can happen at weddings, especially after guests have had a few too many glasses of champagne. But for security officers and door supervisors who know how to deal with rowdy revellers, this doesn’t need to be an issue.
Most of the time, security officers can deal with alcohol-fuelled incidents admirably and allow the night to continue in good spirits, helping you remember your wedding day for all the right reasons.
