Saw this recently on Cnn.com and wanted to share with my fellow BDWers

Man arrives at wedding year early

LONDON, England (Reuters) -- Teacher Dave Barclay flew thousands of miles across the Atlantic to Wales to attend his friend's wedding, only to discover he was a year early.

Barclay, 34, was told about the wedding earlier in the year and assumed it was to take place in 2007.

It was only when he had flown into Cardiff from Toronto, Canada, and rang the bridegroom seeking details of the venue that he discovered the wedding was in 2008.

"I am a year early -- yeah, my mates are loving it, aren't they," he told BBC Radio Wales.

The groom, Dave Best, had emailed his friend at the start of the year.

"He just said July the 6th and I assumed it was this year because if you tell the guy July 6th, they're going to think it's this year," Barclay said.

Barclay, who has been teaching in Toronto for three years spent £500 ($1,015) on his premature flight.

"At least it's assured me a mention in the speech next year," he added.

    That is too funny. Before our wedding I kept having nightmares about arriving in Mexico too early and having to figure out how to get home.

        Ha!!! That is so funny. Poor guy spending money to get down there early. I'd feel compelled to pay for his flight the next year.

                lol Jamy, that's what I thought too - what a good friend, he just shows up with little information provided. Haha, well at least you can depend on him arriving on time next year!
