If we had not been able to rent our location exclusively and had to go the hotel route, we would not have paid for anyone's accommodations other than our immediate family's.

I think there are not a lot of people who can afford that, and it is just a best case scenario reccommendation rather than actual ettiquette. IMO, anyway.

I mean, I am all for etiquette when it comes to making sure everyone is well treated but once it is at the expense of my financial or mental well being, all bets are off.

Paying the lodging of other guests is probably going to end up being about a fourth of our budget, actually. My mom is on disability and so I already know I'll be paying for her room, and I've also agreed to pay half the expenses of my brother and his girlfriend. When you think about plane tickets, passports (several of my guests don't have current ones), lodging and misc. expenses it really adds up. Not to mention most people feel obligated to give gifts (even if you tell them not to).
To me, I'd rather have my loved ones at my wedding then have an extra awesome reception without them. Even if my reception sucks, they'll still have gotten to go to Cancun and be there for my special day!
