For us, it will be far LESS expensive to get married in Jamaica that it would be to do it at home, so since we're paying for it, that was the key deciding factor for us. I say do the DW if it's your dream, but then have an AHR to share with those that could not attend due to time/budget constraints!

#2 No matter what, there will be people who can't attend and people who complain. I do not know of a single bride on the forum that hasn't had some kind of guest issue. You will be surprised who doesn't show up and at the ones who do make it.
#3 This is YOUR WEDDING! It needs to be what you want.
#4 You can offer your guests cheaper hotels, but you need to decide who will end up paying for the day passes and how those guests will get to the resort. Also, the Riu has a policy that 80% of your guests need to be staying at the Riu to host your wedding there. So if you have 20 people total, 16 must stay at the resort.
#5 You should try to explain to your guests the value of an AI package. Once I sat down and went through everything that was included people were much more ok with the cost. The package price is the bottom line is a good way to budget instead of a hotel that costs $300 less but then you have to spend and extra $100 per person per day for food and beverages, KWIM?
I was married at Couples and they have a little comparison list:

You might be able to use this as a template or guide when explaining.
