Babysitter for Destination Wedding?
Hi everyone, we are planning our wedding for October, 2016 somewhere in Florida and during discussions we're trying to determine what to do with his daughter (she'll be 5 when we get married) during our wedding weekend. Due to reasons I won't get into, we don't feel comfortable asking his dad and stepmom to kind of keep an eye on her while we're busy with last minute details and neither of our real moms are coming to the wedding so we're trying to figure out how to arrange things for her. In theory everything will be arranged so there shouldn't be too many things that we need to take care of, but I'm sure at 5 years old she'd much rather be at the beach having fun.
We've talked about maybe paying for another family member's airfare and lodging for them to stay with her the entire weekend and perhaps put them together in a separate hotel room. This option would be a big stretch for us financially (paying for a 4 person's airfare, food, hotel, etc.).
Looking to find out what other people have done in these types of situations, any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
