Another wedding one

My aunt is getting married next June. She's emailed me to invite me and ask that I book/ pay for accommodation immediately as it will be half term and she is worried it will get booked up locally (popular tourist place). She wants us to stay 3 nights - day before, day of, and day after - and it will be around 400 quid for us to do so. It's just way outside our budget and we simply do not have the money- I emailed back saying we can come for the day (perfectly doable distance) but fraid can't afford to stay and she has not replied- she has form for passive aggressive huffing.
Have I been very rude?

I said its because we don't have the money, I know she's paying for other relatives (money is not an issue for her) and I think she might see that as rude/ massive hint. Its not, I wouldn't accept it even if she offered as she will expect return for her money- ie do as I say etc.

I think its reasonable of her to let you know that there are people staying 3 days, otherwise you could have got there just for a day trip and been miffed (in her imagination) that other people were making it into a long weekend, presumably with meet ups and drinks.
I did that with my wedding for close family as accom and travelling were going to be awkward if left to last minute and I didn't want them left in a bind if they didn't realise that. They did all stay for longer, but it would have been fine if they had said, nope it's OK we've worked out how to do it in day.
