@Tallyboo: I would ask if they have a special kid’s meal or can provide one for a lesser price.  We almost had a five year old come so I asked and it was a lot cheaper than the normal meal and more appropriate for a child that young.

Ask your venue if they offer a kids meal. But I’m warning you, if you have told other guests that it’s adults only, you might ruffle some feathers when one kid shows up. just a heads up!

4 years old is not a baby. 

See if your venue offers childrens meals. Most can whip up some chicken fingers and fries without issue. I personally would not give a 4 year old an adults entree. Those things are expensive and nowhere near worth the 3 bites he/she will take.

Most venues offer a lids meal (Chicken fingers, mac and cheese etc…) so check and see what they have and the cost.

You should be able to get a kids meal.  I would agree with sourlemon though that some people may be a little upset that their child wasn’t invited and yet this child was.  I’d just be prepared with a response in mind in case anyone asks.

The toddlers/kids at my wedding will be having chicken fingers and fries.  I had initially asked for some pasta with red sauce, but the caterer told me that is tricky because sauce can spill and a lot of little kids would need help eating that.

@Tallyboo: My Fiance neices and nephews are coming to the wedding. The ages range from 3 – 9. They are all picky eaters so I am not ordering anything special for them. In fact, I have told my caterer to not charge me for them (they will eat for free basically) because they don’t eat, so why should I have to pay $75.00 for them to take a couple of bites and throw the rest away. The caterer had no problem with this. The kids are going to be too busy running around and will probably be eating more sweets than actual food. If I were you I would keep the menu the same for the child and ask that you not be charged. It doesn’t hurt to ask, and the worst they could say is no.

@Tallyboo: What are the adults eating for the wedding? Chances are… he will find something to eat. If he’s picky, I’m sure his mom will bring a snack or something. But then again, I’m not really accomodating to children 🙂 Especially if it’s only one. I sound like a terrible person. Oh well.
