Newbie here.. torn between Vegas and Mexico!

If having the most people there with us as possible was the most important to us, then we would pick Vegas.
If having the wedding where we always imagined we would - on a beach overlooking the ocean - was most important to us then we would pick the tropical vacation.
We picked the tropical vacation, but if our brothers wouldn't have been able to afford the beach vacation, we might have changed our minds. Everyone's circumstances are different so our thought process may not help you too much.
Good luck in your decision.

We always dreamed of having our wedding in mexico (playa or cabo), but we're starting to second guess that lately with the ridiculous airfare prices! A houston-cabo flight is now around $850! I think on average if we went with an AI, our guests would spend $2,000 each coming to our wedding. We want a small wedding (around 50ish), but our extended family might not be too keen on spending that much ! Also, friends might not enjoy spending that much on coming to a wedding.. arg
Vegas isn't free, but flights are much cheaper, and there are so many more hotel options to fit into any budget.
Targeting a wedding next fall (Sept or Oct), so hopefully we decide the place soon!

My original plan was Puerto Rico where we got engaged, but we changed it to Vegas and couldn't be happier. We both love it there, and although we are going to miss the beach and the ocean we are still able to get married outside in a beautiful garden at Caesars. And it's cheaper so we are inviting a few more people.
As others have said, it's your day so pick what you want to do.
