I have kind of an opposite take on children at weddings than most people. I don't care if they are at the reception but I don't want them at the ceremony. I've seen too many toddlers cry during the vows while the parents just ignore it. I was also thinking that a 15 minute ceremony wouldn't be much to ask a parent to be separated from their kids from. Would it be reasonable to get a sitter to have at the venue to have the kids in a separate room while the ceremony is going on? The reception and ceremony are in the same place.
Where do you find a babysitter? Does anyone have teenagers they trust?
