    Don't worry about it. People will find street parking and if not, they can pay $1.50/hour. : (5 votes)

    Arrange for everyone to park in the deck and pay for it. That's the classy way to go. : (5 votes)

    Your guests should not have to pay to park at your reception, IMO.  Maybe you can have someone from the venue be out front and collect the parking deck vouchers from anyone who parks in the deck and then you and your Fiance pay for that parking.  If street parking really is available, people will use that and you and your Fiance won’t have to cover much.  And if it isn’t, you shouldn’t be asking your guests to pay.

    I like FutureKMMs idea – just have people park where they park and you guys pay for whoever parks in the deck!

    I am curious… what college campus are you getting married on?  I am wondering if it is the same as mine, since you are in NC 🙂  .

    Usually you can talk to the campus parking service and get guest vouchers for people. They are free and allow them to park in guest parking for free. Atleast that is what they do on my campus. It has worked out pretty well especially since you are already paying the university for the use of the campus.

    Oh – another idea!  When I was living in LA, a lot of the businesses (like doctors offices and such) could stamp your parking slip from the deck and then when you left you didn’t have to pay.  Maybe you could set something like that up with the university!  People who park in the deck can have the ticket thing stamped inside your venue and then when they leave the deck they don’t have to pay.
