    Cabo Dreams Brides:
    I was wondering if they were giving (or gave) you a discount for children for the meal/set-up? i havent thought to ask- but i thought i would check with yall first. also- are yall doing a kids table? what all are you putting on it? is it safe to let 10 kids sit alone??

      Interesting that you should ask since I hadn't thought of this at all. While I have included the kids in my attendee number, I haven't planned for them to sit at a different table. Nor have I arranged for a different meal.

      Irecently saw candy centerpieces for the kid's table that was cute. A cookie bouquet would be cute as well. It may not be necessary to do anything special either. How about coloring activities instead of menu cards. Etc.

      It seems like I covered everything but totall dropped the ball when it came to the kids. Keep me posted with your findings and I will do the same.

          I'm not sure about this either, I have 2 newborns coming and I'm not counting them in my numbers. Isn't that right? Also then I only have 1-2 kids so I just put them at there parents table and they can figure somthing out to do. I'm not going to worry about it. You have 10 kids coming I would maybe plan something then for them? I think the coloring books would be a good idea, and I also like the candy idea!

            I think it was Rebecca who told me (and sent me her excel budget spreadsheet) that kids are $10. That is per set-up. So for the ceremony and the reception set up it is $20 total. You pay half for kids than what you do for adults. However, I don't know who is considered a child. Under 12 maybe? I'm sure you can set them up separately I don't see why that would be a problem.

              I will have a LOT of kids at my wedding (I have 15 nieces & nephews). Dreams is charging us half price - $10 for reception & $11 for ceremony/cocktail hr. I'm leaving it up to my sisters / brothers in terms of which events they want to include their kids & which kids get a seat at the table. I think the young ones will not come to the rehearsal dinner (at Portofino) but all will come to the wedding. We most likely won't have seats for those age 3 & under since they will be lap kids or will be running around so much and won't sit during the entire meal.

              I have to ask Mariana about including kid meals - good idea!

              There are some cute coloring books / activity books on this link (so sorry, I can't remember who posted this but it's a great resource - Wedding Planning )

              I also just bought some plastic shovels & sand toys that I am putting in the OOT bags for those bringing kids. I found them for $1-2 each at Michaels - really cute too!!

                update on this question - here is Marianas response:
                Kids: we surely can have a special menu for them; usually we prepare something like pasta, salad and nuggets but we can also have the hot dogs if you want. The price for children between 2 and 12 years pay half of the price, so $11.00 us.

                THANKS LADIES!
