130 guests!!! No wonder you're banning the kiddies! That's insane, and yes, it's going to cost a fortune. That puts everything into perspective, lol!

We just did a plate of chicken nuggets for him, I know it was cheaper, but I can't remember how much cheaper.
This is what we did for our wedding. We had 175 guests attend our wedding (about 35 were kids under 12). We had a kids menu which was about 1/2 the cost of the regular menu.

I made activity kits for them so they would stay entertained during dinner. My WC suggested we contain the kids in the cocktail area where they could hang out, but most of the kids are rowdy and I opted for them to stay close to their parents where they could be supervised.

Thanks everyone. Yes, unfortunately, cost was the main factor in our "no kids" decision since we have so many people. Anyway, she will literally be the only kid there--other parents did not bring their kids, except one who also is bringing a friend to do the babysitting. So, we have decided that we will just let her be there with us (with special kids food!!!) and then her parents can just decide what to do as the night progresses. Hopefully this will make everyone happy!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
