Betty the Boujee Cocktail Car FAQ
Do you supply the booze?
We are a Mobile Dry Bar for hire and cannot legally sell you alcohol.
However, we have curated a beautiful list of wine, Prosecco craft beer, and spirits that are available through selected outlets. You make your choices; submit the payment and we’ll do the rest! Because of Florida’s laws, pricing and payment for your alcohol must remain separate from the rental of Betty Boujee.
Can you help me figure out what I need?
Heck yeah! We are available as a resource and will guide you throughout the entire process leading up to your event. During our consultation call we will go over quantities and product variations to help you stay on budget.
What do I need to plan for with your vehicles?
Measuring 7ft wide and 14ft long, our 1973 Volkswagen Beetle fits perfectly in any beautiful setting and can easily fit through double doors. We require a flat surface and a designated outlet to operate. If your event is located somewhere without electricity, we can add a generator to your package.
What is your payment and refund policy?
A 50% deposit is required to confirm your reservation and the balance of the payment is due 2 weeks prior to the event date.
*All deposits are NON REFUNDABLE in the event of a cancellation.
What if it pours at our outdoor event?
The good news is all our bar can be set up under a tent and can be placed indoors! Unfortunately, we cannot change dates at the last minute due to inclement weather, but we are happy to talk about options if such circumstances arise prior to the event. The host will be responsible for tents or permissions required for indoor placement of bars.
Tell me about insurance and permits
We carry general liability and liquor liability insurance. It is the host's responsibility to obtain proper licenses and/or permits for your event if needed.
Do you provide the bartenders?
Yes, we provide the bartenders. Each event comes standard with 1-2 Serve-Safe CERTIFIED bartenders.
Can you travel throughout the state of Florida?
First 50 miles are FREE (anything over # of miles x 0.58¢) Betty Boujee is happy to travel to your event anywhere in the State of Florida. We are based out of Jacksonville, and the first 50 miles of travel are FREE. Any additional mileage that we incur will be charged at the IRS standard rate of 58.5 cents per mile. Any travel over 3.5 hours 1 way, add $200 overnight fee.
Picnic Services FAQ
How do I reserve a date for my event?
The first step to reserving your event is to complete our inquiry form. Upon receipt, we’ll reach out to confirm date availability and discuss your vision for the perfect event. However, to secure your date on our calendar, we’ll need a 50% deposit and a signed contract to get the fun truly started!
How far in advance should I book my event?
We recommend booking at least 2 weeks in advance for photoshoot rentals and events with 15 guests or less. For larger events such as showers, birthdays, weddings, receptions and corporate events, we recommend booking 2 months in advance as they require more planning to ensure we best serve you. However, if your event is sooner than this, you can always check with us on availability and we'll make it a top priority to accommodate you and your guests!
What happens after I pay my deposit?
Once we’ve received your 50% deposit and signed contract, we’ll send over our vendor recommendations if anything else is needed to tie together your event. If you’ve opted for our concierge services, we’ll handle all communications with our partner vendors on your behalf. Although we'll be in contact with you periodically, expect to hear from us one week prior to your event to discuss final minor details such as location details, weather concerns and any last minute add ons. For pop-up picnics in agreed upon public locations such as the park, a final location will be pinned and sent over to you once we find the perfect spot (about 1-2 hours prior to your start time).
How long is each picnic?
Each picnic is hours long for a guest count of 10 and under, anything with a guest count over 10 is given a 3 hour time frame. You are also given the option to add more time if you’d like.
Do you only offer picnics?
While luxury picnics are obviously our thing, we also offer our services in event planning, weddings and receptions, showers, birthdays parties, formal table styling and corporate events.
Do you allow pets to your picnics?
Unfortunately, we do not allow pets. There are some circumstances where pets may be required for photoshoots or proposals, in which case we will make an exception which will require a non-refundable pet fee.
Do you provide food & beverages?
We sure do! We provide two drink dispenser (One for fruit infused water and one for fresh lemonade) with each picnic. If you would like to have bites ready to go when your party arrives, we highly recommend placing an order with one of our partners for items such as cakes and charcuterie boards. We can also help with pickups and deliveries when you add on our concierge service.
Can I add on any alcholic beverages?
While we currently do not provide alcoholic beverages, we strongly encourage you to B.Y.O.B!
Can I bring my own foods & beverages?
Absolutely! We recommend simple, elegant foods that are easy to eat, such as finger sandwiches, cheese, meats, fruit, crudite, salads, cookies, and cupcakes.
What is the Concierage service?
Our Concierge Service takes away the heavy lifting from you as we handle vendor coordination, location scouting and site visits, budget planning, pickups, deliveries, and general day of coordination to ensure your event goes off without a hitch.
What is your cancellation policy?
All deposits made to secure your event are non-refundable. If you need to reschedule your event, we require a 7 day notice. After that, a $100 rescheduling fee will be applied to all non-weather related reschedules.
What happens in case of bad weather?
As we all know, Florida weather can be extremely unpredictable. Upon booking, we will always request an alternative indoor location that we can move to, should the weather take a turn. If your event must be outdoors, we will work with you to reschedule your event at no charge.
Helpful tip: Rescheduling can be stressful, especially for birthday parties and surprise events. We HIGHLY recommend planning ahead for an indoor alternative. Living room or balcony picnics can be just as beautiful and dreamy as outdoor picnics.
