Ensuring You Have Enough Servers at Your Wedding Reception

Part of the Wedding Planning For Dummies Cheat Sheet (UK Edition)

Never assume a caterer will bring the correct number of waiters/waitresses to service your wedding efficiently. Use this chart (based on 100 guests) as a guideline in your planning meetings.

Type of Service Recommended Number of Servers
Drinks reception Four waiters/waitresses for canapés
Four to six staff members for the drinks if bringing them out to guests
Buffet/hog roast Five waiters/waitresses
Formal sit-down One waiter/waitress per 10 guests
One front-of-house manager to instruct staff
Evening bar Four to six staff including a person to clear glasses and restock the bar
