I wanted to pose a question to you all and welcome your feedback. We did the online RSVP thing, and for most of my family (so cousins w/ children for the most part) I included the number of kids they have plus the parents for the total # of people allowed to RSVP. So naturally, many or all of them are bringing all their kids. It ranges from 6 months to 15 years old. Luckily my caterer is awesome and won't charge me for anyone under 3. But I am wondering what kind of communication may be necessary when it comes to the seating arrangements b/c we are not providing high chairs as that is an additional rental. Is that ok and should I communicate that to the parents? Also, do we need to provide a place setting for kids under 3? Really in a jam-I guess I just thought most parents would welcome a night out without their kids and would find a babysitter! It is an open bar after all!
On a similar note, my fiance's two groomsmen (we have a small bridal party) are both bringing ALL their children (5 between the two of them). I thought that was odd, as they are in the bridal party and I was hoping they'd want to be able to focus on the groom and the wedding, not having to watch out for their kids.
Let me know your thoughts-
*3 weeks till the wedding!*
