@superh2ogirl:  

Well, if your only 2 options are having them come & do the clean up, or paying someone (which you said you can’t afford), I guess it just seems like a moot point.

I’m not sure what you were planning to do for cleanup otherwise?  What is the alternative to having your mother’s friends cleanup?  I assume that you aren’t having a caterer, since they would do their own cleanup, right?

Or you can ask everyone (or a few VERY good friends) to pitch in?  Even though you’re technically not paying your mom’s friends, you’ll still have to feed them.  Maybe you can get some neighborhood kids to pick up for a small amount of money?

I’d use them. We are paying A LOT of money for experienced staff to bus our tables for us and help with food. I did not feel comfortable asking our friends and fam to help. I would still write some sort of contract through and review with them so that they understand thier duties. It seems too casual an agreement to me. You are def paying less to serve them diner than you would to pay for service staff for the night is my guess. I know some ppl pay high school students which might be easier for you to do, but me? I wanted people who knew what they were doing.
