Yeah, that’s probably for the best. She didn’t ask you to be responsible for entertaining, she was just asking for suggestions – sounds to me like she was just looking to bounce ideas, so I wouldn’t worry about it in that way. But yeah, a 7 year old isn’t going to do well waiting around a salon for 2 hours, definitely better to drop her off a little later.

I agree someone should care for her until apt. my daughter is my flowergirl so she will be in the salon chair next to me getting her hair done too ( shes 6) but my boys (4 and3) will be with their dads parents until closer to the wedding ( we get along great with my ex husbands parents, they like me even more than they like him lol and they are invited to my wedding) they have agreed to get the boys bathed and dressed also.

@smiles4jo:  I’m with you. I would think it would be her mother’s responsibility to figure out what to do with her daughter.

If she can’t be delivered to the salon later, make sure someone brings an Iphone, Ipad, DVD player or Nintendo- she will be fine.

@smiles4jo: I think that you handled that situation well. Times are different, we were just expected to sit and wait our turn regardless of how long, but nowadays kids need something to occupy their time.

Yikes!  Mom should provide entertainment.  However, this is what the mom’s at my wedding did (I had 3 FG’s and 1 ringbearer!).  They brought a portable dvd player to the chapel.  You could bring one to the salon.  All of the kids at my wedding were well-behaved as they watched a disney movie.  Have her mom bring several disney movies and some snacks.
