Reception Staffing Question

Have anyone used a staffing service for a reception? 

I think life would be easier if we had staff to help set up and serve- We can break down the room afterwards no problem. 

Any suggestions? Pricing would be awesome

    Have you picked a caterer? Many times the caterer comes with serving staff.

    We are planning to do a lot of the set up ourselves with the help of a DOC if we decide to hire one. I would check with your venue about staff help for set up. Even though our venue doesn't do set up/take down, they do have workers you can hire to help out, so maybe your venue does too. Or they atleast might have recommendations for a service that has been used there in the past successfully.

    Like you, I am wondering how to staff our receptions.  Mostly because I don't think it's fair to ask our parents to help, we will all be doing a lot of meeting and greeting.  I would think that an actual staffing service would be quite expensive, if the workers at making $10 hours you are likely paying the agency $20-$25/hr per server.

    We are having our reception in the town my furture in-laws live in and I might ask my them if they know people that could help out for cash under the table.

    Hope this helps.
