When it comes to hiring security services for special events, weddings might not be the first thing that comes to your mind.
But think about it? It’s the biggest day of a young couple’s life, with all of their friends and family there to witness the event. Hiring a little extra security can, at the very last, provide peace of mind for all involved in the special day.
Just knowing there’s a dedicated team of security professionals on-site who can deal with possibly rowdy guests, wedding crashers or even medical emergencies can really ease a couple’s anxiety on their wedding day.
Let’s talk about a few of the reasons why you might want to hire a security team for your wedding.
Can Help With Safety Issues
Particularly if your wedding and/or wedding reception is hosted in areas where guests need to park off-site and shuttle to the festivities, having security officers nearby will add a certain level of safety at the end of the evening.
They can walk guests to their vehicles, if needed, and just generally keep an eye on things during the course of the day and night.
Acting As Peacekeepers
Especially if alcohol is a part of the event, things can get out of hand on a moment’s notice. And the last thing you want is for the bride and groom’s big day to be remembered for something negative that could have been easily prevented.
If guests know there are security professionals at the event, they’ll probably be extra cautious anyway. But if the alcohol and/or tempers do take over, having a dedicated team devoted to safety on-site can be a huge advantage. “Believe it or not, emotions can seriously run wild at a wedding, I’d say one out of ten weddings have some sort of physical altercation,” says Abraham Gonzalez, chief of a Security Services Austin TX firm.
Monitoring Wedding Crashers
Particularly when it comes to more upscale events, wedding crashers may just make an appearance and act like they belong. I mean, think about it? Did you know every single person who attended your wedding?
Wedding crashers generally like to show up unannounced so they can listen to the band, eat some free food or maybe even hit on eligible singles at the party.
Security guards are trained to notice people who may not belong, particularly if they have a guest list provided to them ahead of time. Woman’s Day magazine shared the top ten wedding guest etiquette fails
Can Act As Emergency Responders
Now this isn’t something that every security firm can do, but do your homework ahead of time and ask plenty of questions.
Some security guards are in fact trained in CPR and first aid and can handle many medical situations while waiting for an ambulance to arrive. This is definitely a plus and adds another level of security to your big event.
At the very least, you’ll have the comfort of knowing that there’s a designated person on-site who can quickly recognize certain types of emergencies and call an ambulance or paramedic team immediately.
It’s unlikely you’ll need this type of service at your wedding, but again it’s just another level of service that can provide peace of mind to the guests on your special day.
