She certainly seems to be unusually active for a child of this age. I am against using sedatives because they make children very miserable especially the day after they are used and often they are ineffective in very young children. Seeing you have a specific day you are aiming for, you could give her Aterax Syrup 5ml about 2 hours before the ceremony.
