The parents of the party girl should have paid never heard of guests paying

Just ask the parents. I always wonder that too, sometimes the family pays sometimes they don't.

I would always assume i'm paying.

This. Although I have heard of parents making guests pay, it isn't common, is tacky and, of it happened to me, I'd be offended.

They should pay for their guests.

The parents pay. 99% of the time if a party is at a venue like that it's a party package that's paid for by parentd

Agreed! I mean where we live we sometimes have to drive 30-45 min to get to a party buy a present and then you expect me to pay no way if the parents of the birthday child can't afford it shouldn't do it like I said I've never had to pay and have never heard of it... My daughter will be 5 in April we spend on average $500-600 on her parties to include gifts this year we decided we are going to an indoor water park three hrs from our house for 3 days 2 nights and that's it no party she asked if kids could come one day I told her no cause jusy for us to go not including food it will be $400 so that's her party and she's totally ok with it cause she enjoys spending time with her family so yah id never invite kids if I couldn't afford to pay for them all

The parent should pay, but some don't. You should call and ask.

When I have a big birthday party we pay for it, however we do birthday dinners for family that all the grandparents come too and everyone pays for themselves. That is just what works for us. However I wouldn't invite his school friends and expect them to pay for themselves.
