Parking in Manhattan

I recently got engaged : ) and was thinking of having a NYC wedding. After starting my initial research into venues it dawned upon me about the parking situation. I will have people venturing into Manhattan from suburbia and wondered do I need to pay for their parking? If the venue itself doesn't have parking (or even if it does) is that my responsibility? If I do need to pay for parking, NYC might be out of the question. Thoughts, comments, critiques? Let me know! Thanks in advance!

    I'm diong my wedding at Battery Gardens and they will provide valet parking for a price.  I opted to do it, simply because i have people from LI driving in.
    Anyone staying at a hotel though has to pay on their own.

    I would think any venue that doesn't have parking avail (I bet Battery Gardens is one of the few), has a parking garage close by that can be used, but at the guest cost.

    Hope that helps!

    I don't think any of your guests will be expecting you to pick up their parking tab!

    I'm sure even your "suburbanites" have ventured into the city at some point for a play, musical event or dinner and they must know the parking costs.

    You do not have to shell out $40+ for each to park
