@Mulan05:  I don’t know the answer to this question but I am responding because I’d like to know too. Thanks for asking it!

If you are renting from anywhere else in the same idea as seating, maybe you could rent a few highchairs, and slings (or whatever they call them).  Basically the options that restaurants give you.  I would ask my venue what they normally do about this and they may say they have options or can find something for you.  I’d think that you wouldn’t be the first person to have that issue, if they have weddings there often.

My venue had highchairs available.  So we sat them at tables, and put a highchair in the place of the regular chair.  Definitlely worth at least asking about. You may be surprised by either the venue or your rental company.  I seated them at the table closest to the exit.

If there are only going to be 4 babies, I would take the time to phone or email the parents and ask then what their preference would be. A 2 month old won’t be sitting in a restaurant type high chair, whereas a 9 month old could.

@Mulan05:  I know a lot of people out smaller babies in a car seat. It may be worth leaving an extra space at the table so they an either park the car seat, diaper bag, high chair, etc.

We didn’t have any babies, but we had a relative in a wheelchair.  Our caterer asked us to find out if he wanted a chair or an empty spot.  You can just ask the parents what they prefer.  (Find out if the venue has a high chair available first.)

I’ve been wondering the same thing since I found out FI’s cousin is pregnant and due a couple months before the wedding.

Our venue suggested we provide a chair.  even if the baby won’t be sitting in it the mom might need it to sit the carrier or something…we have no kids and no clue lol.
