Our ceremony and reception is in the downtown area, so parking is very limited, which means, parking garage is the way to go. Are we supposed to pay for the parking also or is it okay if they pay for it? I’ve been to weddings where the guests paid for parking. Parking ain’t cheap!

I don’t know what others will think about this, but I have always heard it’s about what you can afford. It’s a nice courtesy, but not obligatory.
One thing that you might want to look into is a deal with the nearby garage where you pay a flat rate (say, $500) and then the guests pay a discounted rate, like $7 for the whole night. A place by us does that for weddings (we live by the Lincoln Park Zoo) and I think it’s a good compromise for the budget bride.

That is a great idea lily. I also agree with the do what you can afford. I have always paid as a guest for parking if the wedding is in a downtown location. I honestly don’t think that people will expect you to pay for it.
