Lots of Children - Hire a Sitter???

We have 25 children coming to the wedding, out of 115 guests. 
There are 10 bigger kids, and 15 toddlers/babies coming. 

Do you think we should hire a sitter to come and have a room where these little guys can go to chill out? I was thinking something very easy like coloring books, Duplo legos, books, blankets and pillows, and a little 13" tv/vcr with a Disney movie. 

I want their parents to be able to have fun, and 3 of those kids are mine! Do you think this is a waste of money or should I hire a sitter? (would cost like $100)

Re: Lots of Children - Hire a Sitter???

  • For $100 that sounds worth it to me.

  • I think that is an excellent idea.  Otherwise...as soon as they are done with the food...they will be bored and running around the tables...and that's a lot of kids.
    One space for them to hang and do stuff is perfect.

  • Our location is a lodge with 8 little one-room cabins around it. So I was thinking the closest cabin could have the sitter with the kid activities.
    Dancing will start after dinner, but I'm sure not right away. I think hiring someone is what I will do. And I'm sure that the parents of the kids will appreciate it - and maybe even tip her to make it worth her while!

  • Yeah for $100 and for the number of kids coming, it's worth it.

    We have 13 kids from the age of 12 to 18 months coming to our wedding on May 11th.  I am having a sitter come to help with the younger ones.  I also purchased a custom activity book with crayons that has a picture scavenger hunt in it.  I need to purchase the dispoable cameras.  I also got a photo booth which I figured would be entertaining for them.  Good luck!
