Our venue is a b&b/small inn that holds weddings during the summer months. They’re requiring us, as hosts, to provide liability insurance coverage for damage, accident or injury (including “liquor liability”) with a policy that names the venue as co-insured. I’ve asked a friend who is an event planner and she thinks it’s an odd request. Has anyone been asked to do this by their venue? And if so, did you get the required policy?
(I should note that the venue is supplying and serving the alcohol – we’re not bringing it in or serving it. Just paying for it!)

If the venue does not carry a liquor license themselves then they would request you to provide it. Since its a small B&B I dont know that they would server liquor day to day and therefore probably dont have liquor insurance. They might supply liquor for special events only. Id try asking them if they can recommend someone that can do the insurance since they work with it more often. We do insurance at our venue that the client is required to have (venue has the liqour license, the required insurance is for general liability) and its not more than $120.
