@orangeroses29:  we’re in the same boat….lots and lots of babies lol!  We’re having about 13 kids at the wedding. two would be newborns…like a month or 2 weeks old if everything goes as scheduled lol.  But as far as young children.  we have 6 under the age of 5.  We’re just giving them goodie bags with things to keep them busy.  During the ceremony we’re also giving them fidget toys to keep their hands busy 🙂

I think it’s really nice that you’re offering to help find them a sitter, but personally i wouldnt leave my children with someone I didnt know…but maybe that’s just me?

I think you would have to check with the parents and it would depend on the age of the LOs. I think many (not all) of the people I know would be fine leaving a 3+ year old with a sitter (but not a random sitter) but I don’t know of many that would leave a 6 month old or younger with a sitter. In addition, can they drive to your Destination Wedding or do they have to fly? Many parents I know are hesitant to fly with a baby for a long distance.

If it’s a vacation spot, some people I know would bring grandma or a nanny along and just make it a family vacation. Then mom and dad will attend the Destination Wedding and grandma/nanny/etc. can babysit that evening.
