Paying for guests?

We only have 2 in our wedding party and are paying for 2 nights for both just because since they said they would be in the wedding they have to come. I know it's not in your budget to pay for all your party, but could you pay for 1 night for them? I don't think they would/should expect it but if you can swing it that would be a nice guesture.

It was $3000 for our flights and resort (for 2 weeks all inclusive)
My parents bought my dress and are paying for the actual wedding package (but still only $1700)
Our rings were under $1200 (together), my FH's suit cost a couple hundred, I got a super good deal on jewelry and shoes and our OOT bags and favours were pretty inexpensive...under $500 (for appx 50 guests!)
Hair, nails and makeup are being done by my sister and cousin
Our BM and MOH are our only attendants and they bought their own outfits and our guests are all paying for themselves.
Our AHR will cost us a little bit more but not a whole ton, we're having it at our work's association hall and they offer catering (awesome food!) and bar for a super super good price.

And I think you're all right, you always end up paying so much for a wedding anyway... and I am going to choose an affordable resort instead of the gorgeous expensive resorts anyway to make sure guests can come, so... maybe I won't worry about it!

I thought I narrowed it down to the Barcelo and Grand Palladium, but now I'm having doubts again and wanting to throw Dreams Tulum or Riu Palace back in, but the reason I ruled those out is because of the cost for guests, and according to Loco Gringo, Dreams Tulum is about 75 dollars per person per night more expensive, that's a huge difference for guests... so maybe I should just stick with my choices.... and pick one of them!

I've read some people saying they did their whole DW for $2,500. If you leave out reception, cocktail hour & dinner cost I think thats totally realistic. I'm just concerned the hotel won't let you just eat dinner like anyone else staying there would. Will someone please let me know how it works.
