So background is me and my fiance got engaged and booked the wedding for 7pm - 12am on a Sunday. Two months after we booked, I got pregnant! Fast forward to now, we have a gorgeous 6 month old daughter, but in November, when she is 9 months old, is our wedding!
She usually goes to bed around 7:30, she is a heavy-ish sleeper and sleeps about 12 hours a night. We have spent a week away from home when she was 5 months old and she slept her nights in a pack-n-play and wasn't too bad!
I was thinking having a sitter at the wedding so that when bedtime comes, we can start her routine and maybe during my cocktail hour I could get away for a few to actually put the baby down in the pack-n-play for sleep in the bridal suite. The babysitter would just stay in the room with the (hopefully) sleeping baby. Our venue doesn't have a hotel so we would have to wake the baby up after the reception briefly to get her in the car seat and go home and then put her in the crib at home. I am thinking maybe we could extend her awake time a little later because when she is more tired she goes to bed much easier lol. If I have to spend 20 minutes away from my wedding, so be it I am not bothered by putting the baby to bed.
Anyway, any suggestions? I really don't know of any other options so this is the best plan I can think of. I
