Dave Barclay showed up for his friend's wedding in Wales after flying from Toronto. He called the groom for directions and discovered he was a year early. Barclay told the BBC: "He just said July the 6th, and if you tell a guy July 6th they're going to think it's this year."

RENEE MONTAGNE, host:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.

It was the sort of mistake any of us could have made. Dave Barclay showed up for his friend's wedding in Wales after flying all the way from Toronto. He called the groom for directions and discovered he was a year early. Barclay told the BBC that he'd gotten an e-mail last January; quote, "He just said July 6th, and if you tell a guy July 6th they're going to think it's this year." Absolutely. And it will be a great story to tell at the wedding next year.

It's MORNING EDITION.
