Does anyone have any recommendations for childcare in Atlanta? We aren’t allowing kids to the wedding, and would like to offer some service for out of town guests.
Any recommendations would be super helpful!

You could hire some very! responsible teenagers, rent a room (or two) depending on the number of children. Look if you could split up the age ranges into two groups and hire the babysitters on their expertice age range. For the older ones you could allow them to have a movie party and give the babysitter to responsibility to choose two age appropriate movies for the bunch and order a bunch of pizzas.
For the younger ones you could do one movie like cars since they have a shorter attention span and have a bunch of dollar store crayons and coloring paper.
Just make sure both sitters are CPR certified and preferably first aid certified. Another benefit is being fingerprinted through the state.
Depending on the number of kids I would pay a base of $8 and go up by a dollar a child. That is a very fair and reasonable price for the watching kids in a hotel which is way more difficult than in a home.
There is a great site called sittercity.com and another one that is called care4hire. You could also go the craigslist route but I don’t suggest that unless its your last choice. Also, make sure to give the babysitter some food and maybe a monster or so lol.
I hope this helps you and good luck.
