REAL Supplier Spotlight – Wolfpact
Picture the scene - you've just walked out of your wedding ceremony, the sun is shining, your nearest and dearest are congratulating you and you are greeted by a shiny vintage Airstream bar serving all your favourite drinks... I mean, there's even prosecco on tap!
We spoke to Felicity from Wolfpact about the vintage airstream mobile bar, which she and her partner lovingly converted themselves. Grab a cuppa and find out everything you need to know about hiring them for your wedding.
Why did you start your business?
Change! We already had a couple of classic vehicles and wanted a business where we could use them and we had been looking at Airstreams for some time. We did our research and loved the idea of developing the concept of a bar, but also a flexible event space that could be custom hired for a range of uses.
What are you looking forward to about working in the wedding industry?
We believe that we have created something really different and we are most looking forward to seeing our Airstream being a real focal and talking point. We want to see couples and their guests enjoying her and using her creatively so that they have amazing photographs and memories of their day and ones that completely stand out from others!
What question do you get asked most by couples?
How does the self-service bar option work?
We understand that this is quite a unique concept, but think it offers a really good solution to couples, especially in these current times.
Our Airstream can be hired as an open self-service bar. We offer a package where the drink is included and we will set her up for you and then guests serve themselves. Couples don’t need to worry though as we will always be on hand if we are needed!
What wedding trends have you noticed recently?
The two trends that really stood out to us the most were eco-friendly weddings and smaller, more intimate weddings.
Our Airstream’s interior was created locally and where possible we have used reclaimed timber. We supply living plants, reduce waste with our drinks cooling system and supply no single use plastic glasses and we also offset our carbon emissions.
We believe that we are offer a fantastic solution for smaller weddings. We have noticed trends for couples to celebrate longer, maybe up to 3 days, and perhaps having less guests allowing the spend per guest to be higher. Our Airstream could be hired for the day of the wedding, the night before or the day after, or all 3! We can set her all up with the drinks and she can become a self-service bar.
Do you have any tips for couples looking to save money on their wedding?
We love the idea “DIY” weddings. Find somewhere local and transform it into exactly into what you want!
What should couples bear in mind when contacting you about their wedding?
Our Airstream is not just a bar. She is stunningly good looking, iconic and vintage! You would be hiring her to really “wow” your guests and as an awesome back-drop to your wedding photographs. We understand that she is not everyone’s choice, but if you love and appreciate all things cool and classic then she’s sure to be the perfect addition to your wedding!
In practical terms, she’s 23ft long so only suitable for outdoor positioning. As long as there is level ground and good access she will fit most venues. You will need to seek permission from the venue.
There are 2 ways you can hire her. Either as a dry hire and the venue supplies the drink or you can hire her as an open bar and we will supply the alcohol for you as we hold a personal licence.
