Hello, so I had been planning to not have children at my wedding and originally it wasn't a problem, but now our venue has changed and is about a 3 hour drive from where most of our guest live and I know they wont feel comfortable leaving there kids with and overnight sitter. Now my new plan is to hiring a babysitter to stay at the venue and watch the kids but now I'm conflicted on if I should pay or if I should ask the parents to pay. If it was one or two kids I wouldn't have an issue paying but it would be 4-6 kids which would cost quite a bit more, so is it to much of me to ask that the parents pay for what their kid would cost? Mind you I'm also providing some free lodging for those people that would have a hard time paying for a hotel so that wouldn't be a concern but, would asking for them to pay just $50 dollars or so for the babysitter ok? and if so how do I mention it on my invitations without coming off to harsh?
