The airlines don't announce a schedule more than 330 days out (10 months). We told our guests to plan $2000 per person for the week when we got engaged in March. In September we got our pricing. It was about $2000 for the week and $1500 for the weekend, Thursday to Monday.
Mexico might be cheaper, but I would recommend getting a place that you and your FI like. No matter what you do, someone in your group will be unhappy or not able to afford the trip. Be careful not to get caught up in making everyone else happy.

Keep in mind that approximately $650 of that will be airfare alone so that leaves $164 per day for hotel and food, activities, entertainment and unlimited beverages plus taxes. Also out of that may come round trip transfers to/from the resort- those prices hae gone up also because of the cost of fuel.
The basic 3 star hotels easily go on average for $125-200 per night with taxes. basic amenities and not beachfront.
So to break it down- this is all guestimates (especially airfare & transfers) as it's after midnight here and I'm tired but ...
$1800 per person
(-30 round trip transfers)
1120 divided by 7 nights=
$160 per night
(-75 ) low average 3 star hotel rate divide by 2 people sharing a room.
$85 for 3 meals, snacks, beverages, non motorized watersports and entertainment

We are coming from the UK so it is going to be pretty expensive for people to attend our wedding, thats one of the reasons we are inviting family only. We know our immediate family are defo coming, anyone else is a bonus. But we knew not everyone would be able to afford it when we decided on a destination wedding. Thats why we will have a party when we come back, unless everyone does come!lol
The way our guests are looking at it, it will be their summer holiday for that year!
