Do you have a picture of the room? Even just a floorplan type one? That might help. 

I think you should be fine (have you seen how many kids they cram into classrooms these days?), but it’d be easier to tell if you had a visual.

I applaud you for thinking of your guests with small children.  One thing to keep in mind…..if you are hiring the baby sitter and this is a Destination Wedding…how are you vetting the sitters?  And are you liable if (god forbid) something happens to one of the kids? 

I think one room is enough, and I would not go and buy cribs/play packs for the infants.  I think it is nice that you are providing a separate area for the kids, but the parents *should* be prepared for thier kids…i.e. if they have an infant that they plan on dropping off in the room, then they should also be bringing whatever furniture the infant will be sleeping in.  Presumably they would need it for their own hotel room – seems like with a little coordination, they could just bring down the play pack before the reception starts.

That being said….buying little goodie bags for the kids = good idea!

I think just the suite would be fine. Maybe ask parents to bring a favorite movie and/or board game, then you’ll have lots of entertainment for the older kids, and at least one thing each of them will enjoy.

I think one suite would be fine, but I think you should ask the babysitters to “introduce” the kids to the suite and give the ground rules, like take them on a little tour as they arrive and show them that this is the “quiet bedtime room” and this is the “jump around and act like kids” room.

2 baby sitters for 10 kids will be fine.

I’m a nanny and I used to teach day care.

I think there wll be enough room.  It’s not like they’re going to be sleeping there, right?!
