We had staff replenishing the food, moving food to the front of the pans, clearing plates, and just there to answer questions about what’s in the food. No one was monitoring who picked up what, but like you said — just having someone watch might make a difference to some people.

Servers are a good idea, are you thinking of hiring them or asking friends/family to serve?  Also to be sure people don’t take too much be sure to provide standard size dinner plates (they can only stuff so much), and be sure to call out people by table, most people will wait until all tables have been called before going up for seconds.  That should solve most of the issues.

I think we are going to skip servers and just order extra food. Comparing the cost of servers versus just ordering more (and these meals are already big) it will be definitely cheaper to go this route. I realize that some people may eat more than their share, but I think my family members would just ask for more anyway! We too are going to control how much gets plated by getting “smaller” plates.
