@calgarybride2015 it certainly limits the options. I'm always so worried about losing luggage, flight delays and even cancelations so connecting flights were a definite no. Plus it's already such a long flight from Vancouver, why add layovers. And I agree that being in the same flight is more fun!
I agree, generally I don't mind a connecting flight but not for our wedding! I was already panicked about stuff not making it With our upgrade to first class they made all our bags (kids and ours) priority but I know that still isn't a guarantee. Vancouver is a major center and it makes no sense they wouldn't have a direct flight into the most popular airport in Mexico! I wasn't in the back with my guests but I know a lot of drinks were being had -- there was a fight over the cold beer and we drank so much it was warm because they ran out LOL!!! That was awesome with first class - they just kept bringing it and bringing it lol, not sure how I will ever go back to economy!
