Are children allowed at the ceremony?
Subject to the approval of the General Manager, children may attend a wedding as guests for the ceremony and photographs only. A charge of USD $40 is required for each child. After the wedding ceremony and photographs the children must leave the resort.
I know everything, and I'm always right (just ask my husband).
I went to a wedding at CSS last year and there were kids there and they stayed until after the cake and wedding stuff was signed so for maybe about 45 minutes after the ceremony but then they were asked politely to leave. So I'm not sure how long you were planning on having them stay but I would email the wedding coordinator and ask her. It can pose a dilemma but in their defense it's a couples resort for adults, so as a guest I can understand why they don't allow it. They don't want to inconvience the other guests there who picked Couples specifically for the no kids atmosphere. I would still ask though.
