Depending which country you decide on can affect prices and depends on the city in that country that you have the wedding can also affect prices... If you go with AI, it's going to be more expensive... some resorts offer free weddings and some you have to pay an additional cost for the wedding... there can be resort fees to bring in an outside photographer.... some resorts have a limited guests, over that you pay extra... some places require additonal fees for decorations...
You can have an affordable wedding, you just need to research the places the you like and weigh the options that best suit your needs.

Small and simple I think is the best way to keep a budget in line.

The ladies above made some great points for when it comes to the "big" stuff.
For smaller stuff, invites, gifts, favors etc. comparison shopping is super important because there's a wide margin on prices for the exact same product.
I'd say before you decide on number of people, you should find the budget that works for you FIRST. Good luck and happy planning!

DIYing can (sometimes) save a lot of money and most of the time the purpose of a destination wedding is to save money and not have to invite everyone you know.
I'd pick a number that is the maximum you want to spend on your wedding and work within that. So for example if your wedding budget is $12,000 spending $5,000 on photography or a dress won't work.
You can then adjust your budget once you get in all the big necessary items like location/reception/food cost and adjust as you go along.
