Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 126.96.36.1990
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them EXCEPT Moschino Stuff, Fitness Stuff, and Romantic Garden Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? When planning a wedding, hire the role for the caterer, bartender/mixologist, and musician tab (don't choose your friends to do it).
What happens when the bug occurs? The caterer, mixologist, and musician never show up. Even if you manually hire them by clicking on the fridge, bar, and piano. They never show up, but it says they are on the lot.
What do you expect to see? I expect for them to show up and do their job.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No
I have tried the Von Haunt Estates, Club Calico, and Myshuno Meadows Center Park. I scan the entire open world, not just the lot, these sims are nowhere to be found.

@GinaMarieOynohs I've found in my game that the hired npc help no longer seem to spawn at the places they used to. Once upon a time, all of them would spawn right in front of the lot they were supposed to work in at the same places your active sims spawn but now it seems they spawn at the spawn point the furthest away for some reason. It seems to happen in all the worlds and at all venue types too and not just with the hired help either. Summoned and necrocalled ghosts do it and some of the sims I invite over by phone or invite to parties held on one of my residential lots do it as well. How quick any of them arrive at your front door seems to depend on how far away the spawn point is too so in some worlds they do arrive faster than others. It has been going on for a while but I can't say for certain when it started. But in my case, they do spawn though and they do show up at some point. But it takes them so long to get to one of my events like a wedding in Myshuno Meadows that the event is nearly over before they get there.
This makes a lot of sense. I played around with it all day yesterday, and one time I just went with it and let the wedding go on (I had replayed my wedding at LEAST 15 times at this point lol) and I realized near the end, they finally showed up. So yeah I suppose that's the issue. Thank you for your reply!
