Sorry to hear about your Expedia drama. I usually use travel websites but this time I booked directly with AA to make sure we had no issues and I am so glad I did with all these stories I keep hearing. We are doing connecting flights and even though lost luggage is a concern I figured we could manage. Pack the most important wedding items in your carry-ons, also throw in a bathing suit, meds, an outfit and all your paperwork and you will be set for a day of two if the worst happens. Also, I read some traveling tips that suggested packing half your stuff in your bag and the other half in your FIs and vice versa. That way you are both covered if one goes missing. I also told all my BMs that they HAVE to carry their dresses on board with them but I think I might just hang them in with my dress to make it easier and give them room for an extra carry-on....hopefully filled with my stuff.

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!!
