We have booked for the full 130. I am a little nervous as we want to invite way more than 130 people. Our really conservative guest list (which excludes children not in the wedding party) has 182 people on it. I read somewhere that for destination weddings about 55% of the people invited attend. That would put at as 100 guests with room for some of our guests to bring children if they wanted, too. I've also heard; however, that more people came than some brides thought would so to be safe we are sending out the first 100 invites then sending out the rest as rejections come in.
My sister and I are going down a week early (maybe my Mom and Dad, too). We will definitely be staying with family during that period. When my fiance comes, we'll end up staying at a resort.
