Have a kid-friendly reception
We make your wedding day less stressful by creating an environment where the children can have their own “Wedding Time Party.” We provide board games and arts and crafts, as well as bring toys and play games (treasure hunts, lawn bowling, Frisbee golf, e.g.), to create a fun atmosphere for the kids. We design the kids' activities to meet the needs and ages of the children attending with age appropriate activities and toys.
We provide a check in and out of the kids’ room so that the parents will have the utmost confidence in their safety and security.
Planning a child-free wedding or reception may mean some guests won’t be able to be there for your special day unless you provide wedding childcare for their children. Also, it can be incredibly meaningful for children special to you to be a part of the wedding ceremony, such as a niece or nephew or your own children. Perhaps they may walk down the aisle with you or carry the rings. All this means that you might not want to completely keep the little ones off your guest list. However, you can let them have their own Wedding Time Party by hiring the wedding babysitting service of Destination Sitters.
Destination Sitters helps make your wedding day memorable for you, your guests, and their children by offering reliable childcare for weddings. Our experienced and qualified professionals come to your wedding venue or to your guests’ hotel and create a perfect, fun environment for little ones during your wedding, reception, or rehearsal dinner. We bring toys and games to create a separate fun zone for kids, so that their parents can enjoy the wedding without worrying about their children. Apart from that, we plan age-appropriate activities to make sure that kids focus on having fun, rather than looking for their parents.
We provide wedding childcare to any number of children. Professionals at Destination Sitters ensure that kids have a day to remember while their parents have a good time at the wedding.
We can discuss your requirements in detail and include them in our wedding babysitting service. We examine the venue and figure out how to create a safe play zone for kids, there or in a separate room.
Each of our packages of childcare for weddings is unique and custom-developed to meet the requirements of our customers. Whether your guest list includes parents with kids or with babies, we have specialized wedding childcare services to suit your needs. If you have a theme, we can personalize our services according to it.
Our wedding childcare services can also be hired for individual babysitters and nannies for private sits. If your guests are coming from other cities and staying at hotels, we have specialized services for them, too. Our childcare experts travel to your guests’ hotel rooms or accommodations to offer their services according to each families’ needs, whether it’s special needs, food allergies, or behavioural concerns. Our experienced professionals stay there as long as desired to look after the children and babies.
At Destination Sitters, our aim is to let you, your guests, and their children enjoy the special day. When you hire us for our childcare for weddings services, we handle everything related to children at the wedding and give you and parents Peace of Mind®.

I personally needed childcare when I moved to San Diego 11 years ago. Like most parents, I assumed there were standards for temporary childcare; in reality, there are NO state standards or licensing requirements for temporary childcare. The idea for Destination Sitters was born! I wanted to Give Parents Peace of Mind® when traveling with their children, so I created the strictest screening requirements in the industry for our sitters.
Every sitter arrives with a bag of games, books, and age-appropriate activities for your children.
Fully Checked & Vetted
Every sitter is First Aid & CPR certified, background checked, drug tested, and reference checked, personal and professional.
Special Needs & Multilingual
Upon request, we have sitters who can care for families of children with special needs or speak other languages.
We provide stress-free group childcare that fits your budget and a wide variety of activities for your function.
We provide on-site childcare at your hotel or venue. We work directly with your wedding coordinator or venue.
Traveling with your pet? Hire a sitter to feed, play, walk, and snuggle with your pet, because pets are family too!
