Happy New Years Ladies! 2013 is here and I will be in Maui Hawaii next year for our 15th Anni...
Im one of those weddings that has a million and one kids comming haha. At first...i was gonna make some personalized coloring books and hopefully that would keep them entertained but after thinking about it more.... kids can get a little outta hand haha. We currently have a huge hall booked and are using 2/3 for reception and 1/3 as ceremony. After the ceremony that side of the hall will be empty so im considering hiring child care for the dance portion of the night and putting on movies or having coloring and games??? It sounds silly but if the kids are having a good time...so are the adults.
As far as fees go, base it on how many children you think he/she may end up caring for during the day/evening. You should never pay less than $10 even if she has no children to care for. Here's how I would base pay.
0-2 kids $10/hr.
2-5 kids $12/hr.
5-8 kids $15/hr.
8 or more kids $20/hr.
Keep in mind that your wedding should be a joyous occasion for you and your guests. Kids will be kids and they need stimulation! Do yourself a favor and keep them entertained! Best of luck on your upcoming wedding!
