One thing I like about WireGuard is that beginner tutorial setups for it are point-to-point, which means that it's High Availability. If one node goes down only communications to it are lost, the rest of the network is still up. Beginner tutorial setups for OpenVPN are for gateways which have the gateway being a single point of failure.

Point-to-point is annoying because you have to update every node when you add or change a node, but we have appreciated the HA aspect of it.

Of course I'm sure you can do point-to-point with OpenVPN and you can do gateways with Wireguard, but the design of them does influence how they're used.
