smoocheepoo:  Why not get a hotel thats close by? Take your daughter with you and drive to your parents in the morning. OR – move hair/makeup to the hotel room where there wont be out of town guest chaos? I personally would not want to get ready with anyone but bridal party and close family.

I would still just sleep at your house and have your Fiance bring the kids over. Can you pump a bottle or just feed her before you leave?

smoocheepoo:  i still don’t understand why if you slept at your own house, you’d then be responsible for getting the 2 year old to your mom’s house. if your Fiance (or whoever) is planning on dropping the 2yo off in the morning at mom’s house anyway, i don’t see why your sleeping arrangments change this situation at all.

as for the baby, if you only have the 5 month old to deal with, it shouldn’t be that crazy to try to get out the door in the morning. one kid is pretty easy – just bring extra diapers, and if the baby poops while you’re walking out the door, a diaper change takes like 2 mins or else she can just deal until you get to your mom’s – it’s not like it’s a 2 hour drive, right? it seems like the craziness start when you’re suddely juggling two kids and trying to get them out the door.

smoocheepoo:  are you trying to not see Fiance the night before the wedding? cause honestly it really does seem like staying at home (and just being all packed up and ready to go is the best option)

as PP mentioned if there is a last minute accident or something just handle it when you get to your mom’s house….

I’m all for money saving, but think about this: is all of the money you are spending on the wedding and getting ready worth the $100 you would save on a hotel room? Or better yet, pay a sitter to be at your house at 6 AM and they are responsible for getting the kids ready. Have them cover over before so you can show them where everything is. Literally, they do everything and you get in the car. That’ll be the best $40 you ever spent.

I was in my old bedroom at my parents-by then my brother’s room-with my two bridesmaids, who had the double bed, I slept on the (rather uncomfortable) sofa bed. I didn’t sleep well, but that’s more because of the fact it was my wedding day!

If a hotel room is out of the question, could you use an airbed like PPs have said? At least they’re reasonably comfy and full-sized.

That’s a bummer but what about brigning and air mattress and putting it in the living room, it might help having more space than the couch.

smoocheepoo:  i guess I’m a little lost on this one: why is it if you stay at home YOU have to bring your son, but if you stay at your FMILs you don’t?  It sounds like right now someone elses timeline includes getting your son ready and bringing them to your FMILs.. can’t you keep THAT constant while changing your plan to be that you sleep at home and leave in the morning with just the 5 month old?  Is whoever is in charge of bringing your son over so petty that they’ll drop their responsiblity the moment they find out you’ve slept at home?

smoocheepoo:  yeah, not wanting to watch them both the night before totally makes sense.
