    What city? Surely there are parking garages somewhere? Or can you take the train?

    Of course. If people want to attend your wedding, they will find a way. I’m sure people who live in the city would be used to this.

    @AussieSummer:  well I would go and see if someone could perhaps drop me off or take the train. I hate it when there is no parking!

    I’d get a ride or just take the train. If its only a 5 minute walk I don’t feel like its enough of an inconvenience to miss the wedding.

    Yes! I would take the train…I’m just outside of NYC suburbs so I know how it feels to venture into the land of no parking! I’d deal!

    @AussieSummer:  The people who are absolutely positive on attending will, but I would be very, very unhappy about getting a room close enough to a train station, getting in my best gear and hair/makeup and having to walk to the train station in my heels or carry my damned heels in possible wind, rain and whatever else, take the train in my best outfit, and then have another 5 minute walk in the weather. Is it formal or semi-formal? Will a lot of women be wearing heels and their nicest clothes? Its a lit to ask of non-immediate family… Also, will they then have to catch the train back to their rooms to wait then get in a car and travel to the reception?

    It would really depend on where the reception was. If I had to drive to the reception then that’s going to be a big pain not being able to park at the ceremony but then have to find my way to the reception. 

     

    Most likely though I would take a taxi, especially if there is an open bar, I wouldn’t want to drive home anyway!

     

    ETA: At the end of the day I would still attend. It would just be a pain in the butt to do so.

    @AussieSummer:  This is one of the few occasions where I’d play the “lady” card. DH drops me off (and kids if they’re invited), parks away off, and walks several blocks to the wedding. Not the other way around because I’d be in heels.

    As a PP said, we’d probably need the car to get to the reception.

    @Everdeen:  Good question, I was thinking 5 mins from the train. Easy, I’m in……but if I need a car to get to the reception that may change things.

    @paula1248: “lady card” love it! 🙂 that definitely sounds like the most logical way to go about it!

    It also depends on how close your guests live to the train station near their homes.  I do not live close to a train station, so I would have to walk 10 minutes to the street car, ride the street car to the station, then train, then walk.

    Yes, I would likely still attend.

    Umm, yes? That is no reason to miss a friend’s wedding!
