How many people does it take to keep a kid happy at a wedding?

Uploaded: Aug 14, 2015

We recently flew out to attend my brother's wedding. While we talked about his wedding with our preschooler for months, our kids were not prepared for real summer heat. Although they were uncomfortably hot and not their regular happy selves, our relatives happily stepped in to keep both kids busy and entertained. My uncle drew pictures to keep our son occupied during the outdoor ceremony. And my aunts held our daughter while my husband and I danced a little bit during the reception. Without their help I'm sure we would have had a completely different experience.

How have you kept little ones entertained at weddings? Did you bring games? Use apps on your phone? Rely on relatives for help? Hire a babysitter?
