"We for sure could have either found them a flight out of a different airline or rented a big vehicle and all my family drove down together," she said. "There definitely could have been a different solution have we just had a bit more warning, and that's the most upsetting. More than more so than anything else."

The couple got married last Saturday, Facetiming the ceremony with their parents.

Her father was supposed to walk her down the aisle.

Meanwhile, Southwest says the cancellations were due to a number of issues including bad weather, inadequate staffing, and problems with their air traffic controller.
