Hello! I'm getting married next year and plan on having a buffet style dinner to feed 70 guests, including vendors. How long should I hire servers for? They'll only be serving food from the buffet, I don't need them for the cocktail hour and I'm hiring separate bartenders. Thanks in advance!
I would check with your caterer for their standard timeframe. But some things to think about: do these servers need to set up the buffet, break it down/clean up after, and bus tables? Those decisions will inform how early you need them to arrive before dinner and how long to stay after it.
