Not sure how to diplomatically ask that your guests’ children be excluded from your wedding? Hey, we don’t judge, but it might be easier just to hire a sitter. A new service is making that easy.

Founded by child care professional Lisa Skillman in December 2014, Local Nanny Network guarantees your guests can enjoy the party with peace of mind (and you don’t have to worry about tiny fingers digging into your cake before you’ve even said “I do”). Local Nanny Network nannies arrive in uniform equipped with books, board games, coloring activities and other toys to engage the children during the event. Their team of nannies enable parents to have fun and relax knowing their little ones aren’t far away. All of the nannies are CPR-certified and trained to entertain even the most precocious of children.
