How much is too much to ask your guests to pay?

How much are your guests paying for accomodations and where? Maybe I need some new options. Thanks!

Ultimately, you need to decide if you want more people to come or if you are content having the best resort but fewer people. You could easily run prices and costs by those that you absolutely want at your wedding. If they aren't biting, then you probably should look at different alternatives (that is, if you are willing to compromise for them to be there.)

I tried to picture myself in my guests' position -- If I opened an invitation to their wedding and found out the price was $XXXX to attend, what would my reaction be? Because I wouldn't ask my guests to do something for me that I wouldn't do in return for them.
From there, I came up with a top end figure and narrowed down hotel options. There were still going to be a few people who were not going to be pleased with the costs no matter what but the majority of those were not the "closest family and friends". We wish they could come and they might still surprise us (as others have mentioned, they can also stay at other hotels nearby if they wish), but they won't make or break our wedding. And I knew that if I settled on a hotel I would spend the whole time yearning for something better -- and that would definitely be a long term regret.
