Should I Joint or just Plane?

Furnished content.
(from WoodNet.net)


I picked up some wide cherry boards, 14 inches that will become a dresser top that will be 22 wide. They are pretty flat to start with. I usually run boards through a jointer first and then a planer. My max with to joint is 8 inches. So, my question is should I:

1.Just run then through the planer as is?
2.Cut them in half on the bandsaw to keep the grain flow together and then joint, plane them and glue back together?

I've done option 2 before and I can always see the cut mark. If I were to just plane them, I will still need to match the grain to make a panel and cut to size. I never tried this with such a wide board. I would hate to see this warp over time.

Thanks,

Mike
