I would bring it up so they can plan ahead. There are professional childminding services in most cities that she can hire.

@BrookieCookie9: It’s easier said than done to travel that far a distance and arrange childcare to be away from your kids, especially when they are that little. I didn’t say impossible, just not easy. Just explain your wishes, listen to her concerns and hopefully something can be worked out! Could you possibly help her arrange for a trusted local sitter if she feels more comfortable traveling with her child?

I’m actually hiring childcare workers and having a kids’ room at my reception. My brother and SIL have two kids under the age of two, and there’s no way they’d be able to find childcare for them since they’re flying to the UK from Indonesia to attend the wedding. I want them (and a few other of our friends who are in similar situations) to actually enjoy the wedding without having to worry about finding a sitter. 

The kids’ room is going to be set up for the duration of the reception–from dinner through the end of the evening dance–and will include special kids’ meals, games, a wii, a video, etc. Hoping it works out okay and that the kids are able to have as much fun as their parents!
