Yes, I could email my aunt and ask if her daughter needs one or not (for the reception), but … surely WB will give me a faster answer 🙂
Baby was born March 2008, so at the time of the wedding she’ll be 2 1/2. High chair or regular chair?

I know my niece at that age was able to sit in a booster seat (to keep her seated) or a normal seat (but she ran around like a little monkey). While eating out we asked for a high chair for her so she didn’t bother everyone else!

My venue offered booster seats. I def. don’t think the parents should be responsible for bringing a booster seat. I think a booster seat would be more appropriate than a high chair, but if high chair is your only option, then I’d go with that.

I think it’d be nice to have booster seats for the toddlers. So they don’t have to carry one with them.

I know plenty of parents that prefer to just stick their kid in their lap, because if they are in a chair they are more likely to try to get up and run around. Parents are generally very adept at eating with one hand and holding a kid in another! It kind of depends on how well behaved the child is, and the parents’ preferences. I think I’d just ask the parents what works best for them.

My caterer provided high chairs for like $8 each, so it’s pretty easy to get them. I think a high chair is a great idea.

we gave a child at our wedding about that same age a high chair. I never knew if she ended up sitting in it or not but I’m sure they appreciated it regardless.

I’d say that’s probably too old for a high chair. We had 2 three-year-olds at our reception and they sat in a regular chair (no booster) just fine. I’d think at most a 2 1/2 year-old would need a booster.

It really depends on how big she is. If she is really tiny, I suggest a high chair. Booster seats are mainly so the child can reach the table more comfortably.

I think it depends on the child. The 2.5 year old at my wedding didn’t use a high chair. Her parents specifically asked for a normal chair because she didnt sit in high chairs anymore on a regular basis. Depending on how easy it is to get one through the venue, you could probably plan for one and switch it out if you need to?

It definitely depends on the child…My step son is super active so we kept him in a high chair until he was almost 3. Otherwise he wouldn’t eat bc he was too busy turning around and looking at everything. It did not make eating out enjoyable.

I nanny an almost 4 year old and a 2 year old, and they’re both in high chairs. They both could sit in a regular chair but then they are really low and get up a lot/ have trouble staying seated long enough to fill their bellies.

Good news guys, I emailed the mother and she said that the toddler hasn’t used a high chair in a while, and will just sit on knees or a lap and be fine. 🙂
Thanks for the input!

We had around 3 infants and 4 toddlers and various other aged children at our wedding- we never even thought of high chairs or booster seats! And to be completely honest, those kids got passed around the whole night and never even had the need for their own seat.
