The first part of wedding planning is the guest list. You can’t start your venue search without knowing how many guests you’ll be inviting.
But what do you do when you realize that everyone on your guest list has children?
Toodles Event Sitters share 5 reasons why you should hire a babysitter for your wedding.
Children can be so cute at weddings and often times, they steal the show. For some couples, it can be a joy when that fun moment happens.
There is nothing cuter than special moments with flower girls.
Or the ring bearer strutting down the aisle.
For others, children at the wedding can be a disaster. Having kids at the wedding includes a lot of unplanned moments.
A wedding can be stressful, why add the stress of unexpected moments? You don’t have to exclude the moms and dads from your guest list. Consider hiring a Wedding Sitter!
What is a wedding sitter?
This is a hired a company who comes to your event and provides childcare for your guests’ children so that your guests can enjoy the event “child-free.” A wedding sitter’s most important job is to keep the children entertained (and not asleep) at your wedding ceremony or reception.
5 reasons to hire a babysitter for your wedding
1. No stress over the RSVP.
More of your guests will be able to share your day with you! Guests with little ones will RSVP with a “yes” knowing that childcare will be provided.
2. Mom and dad can let loose.
Parents are able to enjoy the celebration more when childcare is hired! Everyone is relaxed knowing their little ones are being taken care of; they are safe and close by should anyone get fussy or need attention.
3. The non-kid guests can enjoy too!
Guests without kids don’t have to be annoyed by screaming children (those who haven’t had kids are often less tolerant than those who have).
4. Kids have more fun with things that interest them.
Sitters spend the time to create fun-filled activities to keep all of the kids entertained and engaged with one another.

5. It’s a long day and they get tired.
Weddings can be a long day full of excitement, which for some children is a recipe for disaster. Give them a place where they can relax, whine and complain, and even take a nap.
Remember, it’s the couple’s day to relax and know that every guest at their wedding is well taken care of.
