Does anyone have any advice/experience getting host liquor liability insurance? Our reception is more of a “do it yourself” kind of place so we can bring in our own catering and alcohol. We just need to get a permit from the town for the day (and hire a detail officer). In order to do that, we need to show proof of liquor liability insurance. Does anyone have any experience getting this for their wedding? I’d rather get it myself instead of hiring a bartending company as we are ony serving beer and wine (beer in a cooler and wine on the tables) so I don’t feel like paying to have someone stand there for nothing. I’ve seen a few websites for it but I don’t know if they’re real or not. Thanks for any advice!

I would start calling places local to where you’re getting married. Rye, New Husband, by any chance?
Once you talk to real people, tell them what you want, and ask for a quote. Then call someone else, and ask for another quote. Go with the cheapest one.

We also have to get liability insurance, if you ask the venue they might be able to point you in the direction. This is quite common, my wedding planner is handling for me, but I looked into it briefly before I had her, and it looked like a fairly simple and easy process. Read reviews, ask other brides you know, ask the city who people have used in the past.

My parents are able to add a 1-day rider to their insurance (I have a similar situation with my venue.)

Just ask your homeowner/rental insurance company for a quote.
