How to find childcare services for weddings

Childcare for Your Own Wedding

Whilst organising a wedding brings excitement and anticipation, it also brings a whole heap of planning. There’s the venue, the catering and of course don’t forget the dress.

The traditional approach to wedding planning is now also being challenged by other factors. Costs of living and housing have risen and more couples are heading to the altar with their family already started.

This means that even if you’re opting for a childfree wedding, or whether you want your little one to walk down the aisle with the rings, you need to factor in childcare for a fabulous day.

Rightfully the couple need to be the centre of attention on the day, but how is this possible with children who need naps, or early bedtimes?


Childcare As A Wedding Guest

If you’re a guest at a wedding with your kids in tow you also want to be able to have a good time.

Some lucky couples may have a fleet of nannies on hand to help with their younger guests, but most ordinary folk won’t have the same resources at our fingertips.

Yet we too want to balance the needs of our children with our desire to celebrate in style.

In reality, we know that all weddings frequently pose childcare headaches. The initial flurry of excitement over engagement news and the plush envelope dropping on your doormat is quickly overtaken by logistical woes.

This is why, at Sitters, we provide fully-vetted babysitters specifically for weddings and hotels.

We offer a service which means that you can remove the logistical problem of childcare from your to-do list.

You don’t need to worry if the kids haven’t been invited if you can bring them along and have them cared for in the hotel. Even if they are invited, you can put them to bed with a trusted babysitter and head back down to the evening do to keep on partying rather than having an enforced early night.

In real terms, being invited to a wedding when you’re a parent of young children brings a whole raft of problems. That’s where we come in.


Childcare for Weddings

We love a good wedding. We love the opportunity to celebrate love, romance, and frankly we like the chance to party.

We know that wedding invitations come once in a blue moon and you really want to be able to let your hair down with friends and family. However, we also know that Junior often has other ideas. 

That’s one of the reasons why we offer hotel babysitting, wherever you are in the country. You’re not restricted to evening-only childcare either: you can choose the hotel babysitter for exactly the time period you need.

If you need us to cover the ceremony so that you can watch the vows without fear of a little voice shouting out, or you want to stay up late dancing, we’ve got you covered.

What’s great about using a hotel babysitter is that you get a responsible and vetted childcare professional, where you need them, at a fair rate. You don’t need to panic that you don’t know the area or any local babysitters: our search facility does that for you.

So if you want to let your little one enjoy the party until they drop, then rest assured that they will be snug and safe with a babysitter in your room until you’re done for the night too.
