    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!
