Does anyone know where I can hire some waitstaff and a bartender apart from a full caterer? We are having our reception for about 40 people at the Villa we are renting, and my fiance, who is a chef, insists on doing the food himself. (Yes, I know, he's insane....). At any rate, I want to hire some experienced food service folks/banquet waitstaff and a bartender for a few hours to at least HELP with set up, cocktail hour, dinner, and clean-up. The only caterer I contacted to ask didn't seem interested in renting out his staff if he wasn't doing the food...can't say I blame him. But does anyone have any ideas?
Liz, your contact did answer my email, but wasn't able to help either. He referred me to another caterer, who did not answer my email. BUT, in the meantime, my wedding planner had reached out to an old colleague of hers from her days at one of the hotels, and he told her he can help us out with some folks that he knows will be interested. So I'm good...Bryan, thank you also, but I think we are all set!
