Does Your Venue Have Enough Banquet Staff for Wedding Season?

Wedding season is just a few months away. By now, your venue should have a good idea of the weddings on the books, as well as a relatively accurate estimate for the number of guests that will be in attendance at each event. If you haven’t begun thinking about how much staffing you’ll need for these weddings, now is the time to tackle this important task.

Weddings are very high stakes events. They are one of the most important milestones in a couple’s life and as a result, there is tremendous pressure to deliver an amazing experience for them and their guests. One of the most important components to delivering an exceptional experience for your wedding guests is to provide great service.

Of course, the key to delivering the exceptional service your clients and guests expect is to have the proper staffing levels for every wedding. It’s virtually impossible to maintain high service standards when your events are understaffed and your banquet team is spread too thin to provide guests with the attention they need.

With staffing shortages impacting every aspect of the hospitality and events industry, it can be challenging to maintain proper staffing levels for your banquet team during wedding season. Therefore, it’s critical to assess your staffing needs in advance so that you can make the preparations necessary to have the right number of people in place once wedding season starts.

What Are the Right Banquet Staffing Ratios for a Wedding?

In order to ensure you have proper staffing for events, it’s important to first identify the appropriate number of banquet servers you need for the specifics of each wedding. The following staffing levels are considered industry standard for weddings:

Keep in mind that these are minimum staffing standards. For very high-end wedding venues or for weddings with special requests from the client, you may want to have more than this recommended level of banquet staff on hand.
