It’s surprising to me that the lot won’t let you pre-pay.  What if you just pay for 13 vehicles?  Tell them you’re expecting 13 vehicles, even if you’re not.

Hm, I’m going to have this dilemma, too, although we do have tons of free street parking. I say just pre-pay for 13 vehicles if it’s not going to cost an arm and a leg.

Can you ask for vouchers for your guest and then you pay for them all afterwards?  I find it hard to believe that a garage wouldn’t let you pre-pay.

Do you have to pay for their parking? I wouldn’t mind paying as a guest as long as I can pay by credit card (I never have cash).

So here’s where I’m confused. Why can you not just take everyone’s tickets (well, probably not you, since you’ll be busy being the bride and all) and pay? Say, have one of your bridesmaids or a close family member collect parking tickets and go down to the office and pay them?

I have a similar situation, except all of our guests will have to use the parking garage. Is there any part of the day that is free, so if they park in there, it’ll be free all day? For me, if they park before 4:00 p.m., even if they’re in there long after, it’s free. I’d check into that.

We have been given the option of having our venue pay for the parking fees and they’ll take it out of our security. Perhaps see if something like that can be arranged? The venue will be buying the passes from the city and it’ll just save us from having to figure it out ourselves.

I’d prepay for 13 and if you only have half that many show up, then consider the leftover as a tip for the valet.
