In lieu of having kids at our wedding, we have invited friends and family to bring their kids to town (we’re having a destination wedding) and have rented a party room in the hotel across the street for a "kids reception." The hotel was supposed to be able to put us in touch with sitters, but is not being very responsive and I need to nail someone down because our wedding is less than 3 weeks away.
Has anyone found a good online resource for babysitters? I’m a little hesitant to look places like craigslist, and would rather go with some sort of certified/verified service. The wedding is in the WMass area, but any leads are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

sittercity.com. I am not sure if they are active in the DC area, but if they are that might be a good resources to search for some good one night sitters!

Have you checked for parenting resources in the area? I know there are a couple of local listservs (like DC Urban Moms). Not sure if there’s something approximating that in Western Mass where you could ask parents for recommendations. Good luck!

I saw sittercity but didn’t really want to pay the membership fee. I’ve also done a google search and haven’t come up with any loccal listservs. I guess I may just go the craigslist route and see what I come up with. Thanks for the recommendations.
