Hiring A Babysitter For The Wedding...had Anyone Done This?

We don't have kids but our siblings do and we're considering coordinating bringing an extra person on the trip to be the babysitter at times when the adults want to have a little freedom! Probably either a friend of my 19 year old niece or a babysitter from home they already know. Depending on how many people end up bringing kids, the parents might all chip in to pay for that 1 person's trip - we may contribute too if necessary. We really want them to relax and hang out! If we're all at the swim up bar one afternoon it sure would be nice for someone to take their kids for their naps or to play in the sand without feeling guilty.
My sister got married in Mexico last year and our brother and sister-in-law missed the most fun part of the reception to put their 3 kids to bed

I'm a photographer in the area and thought I'd lend some advice... there are two very active communities on Facebook, search: Expats and Locals in Playa del Carmen and Soy Playense ENGLISH. There are some really good people in there (that I know personally) that could certainly recommend the sitters they use for their own children, Also - check out the playa.info forum
Hope that helps!

Does your resort have a kids club? If yes, see what their hours are. I would assume the 10 year old could be there until 10pm at night but not sure about the 3 year old. Worth a check.
I haven't thought about a sitter.
Other thoughts - are there older teenagers you could employ? your resort may offer after hours sitting (I know ours does), maybe look into that?
I am sure everyone at your wedding, especially your parents and siblings understand it's YOUR day and will help ANY way they can. I believe this with 100% certainty! Just talk to them if you are worried.
My kids will be 9 at the time and I just plan for them to be with us all evening until fiance's mom goes to bed/takes them with her. We will all be drinking and having fun, but we socialize a lot at home so this isn't new for them.
Maybe make sure your 3 year old has toys, coloring stuff, things to keep her occupied.
I am sure your 10 year old will be just fine.
