Hi everyone okay so i get married April 18,2020 and I will have a 2 year old and a 4 month old and of course their going to be a part of our big day but who will I trust them with? Is it a good idea to have them so young there? And if they don’t attend the reception who did you get to watch them when most of the wedding guests will be at the reception? Without me or my FH having to tend to our kids while under stress. Helpppppp

    I think it's a great idea to have your children at your wedding! Is there possibly a grandparent, aunt or uncle that wouldn't mind keeping an eye on them during the ceremony and reception?

    I’m not sure i was more nervous of singling someone out basically asking them to not have fun and watch what’s our responsibility you know? Lol

    Can you hire a nanny to focus on your children at the wedding?

    I’m having my fiancé’s 9 year old (will be 10 when we get married) and my junior bridesmaid who will be 12. I am not allowing any other kids. Fully aware it’ll cause drama with my cousins who feel the need to bring their kids everywhere but it’ll be fine. Kids that are yours is very important to have there. I’d definitely just designate someone to keep an eye on them because you won’t have time to!

    Everyone is probably going to be passing my son around like a Potato. Lol. My parents are taking main care of him though (we are going home afterward, so we will take him with us).

    My son will be almost 4 and a half by the time we get married. He will be there all day or might leave early towards the end of the night. He will be with my mom when necessary. I will have a seat for him at our sweetheart table and with my mom just in case. He will most likely sit with us while we eat, and then go to my mom for dances and cake cutting. I didn't even have to ask my mom. She wanted to keep up with him and she's the only one I trust 100% besides his baby sitter (fiances cousin)

    How long/ big/loud will it be?

    My family includes kids in weddings. I strongly suggest having a quiet room where they can go if they need to wind down (either to read, cuddle, or nap). If you ask relatives to watch them, make sure you have at least one for each child (because of how young they are) and plan on a shift-change so no one spends the whole wedding babysitting. Also make sure they know how to take care of a child that age. You can usually hire a professional child-carer, too, which might be a good idea just because of how young the baby will be.
