Have you planned for security at your wedding or event?

June is upon us, and so is the wedding season!

Wedding security is an important consideration for any couple planning their big day in Dallas. Whether you are planning a small, intimate ceremony or a large, extravagant event, it is important to ensure the safety and security of all attendees, including the couple, their families, and their guests.

Here are some key considerations for wedding security and why Eagle Protective Group can help:

The venue you chose should have appropriate security measures in place to protect against potential threats, such as security cameras, alarms, and fire prevention systems. It is important to discuss these measures with the venue staff and ensure that they are fully operational and well-maintained. Eagle Protective Group off duty police offers or security guards can keep your venue worry free, uniformed or not. Disguise us as a wedding guest if necessary!

Are you taking a guest list with you? Let our security handle it.

The guest list should be carefully managed to ensure that only invited guests are allowed to attend the wedding. This can be done by requiring guests to RSVP and providing them with a formal invitation, as well as verifying their identity at the entrance to the venue.

Is your event sure to include large crowds?

For larger weddings, it may be necessary to hire security guards or event staff to help manage the crowd and maintain order. We can help direct guests to their seats, assist with any emergencies that may arise, and ensure that everyone remains safe throughout the event.

Do you have emergency plans in place?

It is important to have an emergency plan in place in case of any unexpected events, such as a fire, medical emergency, or security threat. This should include a list of emergency contact numbers, as well as a plan for evacuating the venue if necessary. Our security guards will be briefed and handle these types of situations so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy your event.

Do you need secure transportation management?

Consider the transportation needs of the couple and their guests, particularly if they will be traveling to and from the venue. This may include hiring a shuttle service or hiring our security guards to escort the couple and their guests to and from the venue.

Gifts and valuables, how will you protect them with such a large venue?

Is the event going to get rowdy?

If alcohol will be served at the wedding, it is important to have a plan in place to manage the service and prevent overconsumption. This may include hiring a professional bartender or providing non-alcoholic options for guests and security to manage guests that might have one too many.

If the wedding will involve vendors or contractors, such as a catering company or DJ, it is important to carefully screen them and ensure that they have the necessary licenses and insurance.

Photography and videography: If the couple is hiring a photographer or videographer, it is important to carefully screen them and ensure that they are reputable and professional. The couple should also consider the privacy concerns of their guests, and make sure that any photographs or videos taken at the wedding are shared only with the couple’s consent.

Do you have insurance for your event?

Finally, it is a good idea to purchase wedding insurance to protect against any unexpected events or liabilities that may arise. This can help provide peace of mind and ensure that the couple’s big day goes off without a hitch.

Overall, wedding security is an important consideration for any couple planning their big day. By carefully planning and preparing for potential threats and emergencies, couples can ensure the safety and security of all attendees and enjoy their special day to the fullest.
