Definitely sounds like you needed the wine! I know what you mean - it would be a lot of fun to hang out with other DW brides and work on all of the DIY projects. Friends and family keep saying they want to help but oddly they never seem to show up when there is crafting to be done. At this point I have just stopped asking and have decided that it will just be a surprise to all of them. Is it bad that the person who knows the most about my wedding plans is my coworker that I have only known for a few months. She is honestly the only one that really seems interested. I think she knows even more than my fiance since I have quite a few secrets I am keeping from him.
Joanne - I feel just a tiny bit of your pain as we have had our Expedia moment with this wedding as well. We booked the flights for my fiance's parents (as they do not even own a computer) through Expedia to fly from Raleigh/Durham through Atlanta to Cancun. Well, we booked and paid and thought all was well until I asked my fiance to forward me the flight info from his account so I can keep track of it. When my fiance went into his account, Expedia had somehow missed a leg of the trip so his parents were flying from Atlanta to Cancun and back from Cancun through Atlanta to Raleigh. My fiance had to stay on the phone with them for quite a while to ask how we could have even done that on a single itinerary if we had tried. They finally told him it was all fixed and sent him an email with the correct itinerary. Several months go by and I decide to check their itinerary on AirTran's website. I pull up the itinerary and it says the fligths could not be ticketed because of an outstanding balance. Apparently when Expeida added the extra flight leg back in it incurred a charge that they had not paid for. After long phone calls to both Airtran and Expedia, I think it is now worked out. But it just pisses me off because Expedia said everything was okay but the Airtran lady said that my fiance's parents would not have been able to board the plane with that outstanding balance.
I wish you the best of luck and think it is great that you are trying to find the positive in the situation. Whether you end up with a lay-over or pay the extra to stay another day, it will all work out in the end and you will have a wonderful trip and a beautiful wedding.

Anyways, bottom line .......... JetBlue cancelled direct flights on Mondays which is what we were booked for, so offered to change us to a layover flight the same day (which we definitely do not want, terrified of loosing luggage containing wedding items), or going on the direct flight the previous day but we have to pay for the extra night accomodation ($350) and Expedia are still not able to confirm if we will have to pay money or not to the day earlier. I spoke to 5 different people (oh the transfers!!) and they all had a different story. SIGH!!
I definitely was upset with this unforeseen issue today, but I just said to my fiance - hey if this is the biggest obstacle for us, then you know what we are going good! Trying to look on the positive!
I had a bit of build up pi$$ed off energy so used that to do a DIY task and did my "bubble tags". At least I got something done whilst I was on the phone for 2.5 hours! Then poured a glass of wine and finished the rest of the bubble tags.
LOL, I wished we all love by each other so we could do massive DIY tasks in one!!
