FI/now DH... said this was a good arguement to friends who wanted to come, and said they couldn't afford it... he would say ''$100/per month starting now, and you'll be all saved up and ready to go" our DW came in at $1100+tx = @$1250... per person.... pretty darn close.
I think that the price will indeed dictate the number of guests you have joining you.
We had 84... We wanted a big party, and we stayed at a great 4.5* resort... and made memories to last a lifetime, and it didn't cost an arm and a leg.

We went to Punta Cana to the Punta Cana Princess in January '09 and paid $1000/each and it was great.
BUT, you have to make the choice: do you want a fancy resort, OR do you want your friends & family at your wedding?? Easy decision for me....

http://www.michaelsteingard.comMichael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs

Another thing to consider is the time of year you are talking about getting married. Jan, Feb and March are the most expensive months to ask guests to travel. April 15 and on prices go down and this was a consideration when I was picking my day. We chose May because it was less expensive for guests to attend and we are getting married at the Majestic Colonial. I know I was quoted from Philadelphia or Newark airport and 7 nights accommodations with taxes and everything $1270/person. If you like the Majestic consider another month, if you are set on January look elsewhere if too expensive but generally every resort is more expensive in January, Feb, and March because it's prime season. Goodluck picking your resort and with your wedding! )
