Some wedding funnies

Shawn and I went to a wedding last night for a new co-worker of Shawn's.  The wedding was in Huntingburg at 6 CST at the Huntingburg Event Center.  Since he said it was at 6, I never looked at the time on the invite, only the address of where the wedding and reception would be so I could look up the directions on how to get there.  It was an hour away, so I figured we would leave at 5.  We always run late for everything anyways.  Well then yesterday morning Shawn says he thinks Huntingburg is an hour of ahead of us.  So I look it up and they are, which means we need to leave around 3:30 or 3:45 so that we will get there before the wedding actually starts at 6 EST with is 5 CST.  Shawn went to work and I took tiny puppy to the vet and then ran into my mom on my way home and went yard saling with her.  Time got away from us and I didn't get home until 2:30, so I was rushing around getting ready and taking care of the dogs before Shawn got home and before we could leave.  Shawn got home late so it wasn't until 3:50 before we left.  Like I said we always run late for everything.  We finally get up there with about 10 minutes to spare.  It's supposed to be an outside wedding and there was lots of chairs set up at the gazebo by the lake.  It was freezing outside last night.  As we are pulling in the parking lot, the place WAS packed and no one was sitting outside.  I told Shawn they probably moved it inside since it was so cold outside.  So we walk in and the reception is in full swing.  I thought cool, people are already mingling before the wedding.  Shawn signs us in at the guest book and then asks one of the attendants if they decided to move the wedding inside.  The lady then proceeds to tell my husband that we were probably at the wrong wedding reception.  LOL!!!  Apparently there were 3 receptions at this place.  LOL!!!  Some poor saps are probably wondering who Shawn and Stacey Glenn were.  LOL!!  We find the room we are supposed to be at.  There isn't hardly anyone there.  The groom comes over and starts talking to Shawn and that's when we find out the wedding was at 6 CST (our time) and not 6 EST (Huntingburg time).  So for the first time in our life, we WERE ACTUALLY EARLY to something!!!  You know what that means now, we got to sit outside longer in the freezing cold with the wind blowing off the lake waiting for the wedding to start.  Oh, how I wish we would of been running late!  LOL!! 

Overall, the wedding was beautiful, the bride was beautiful, and the reception was fun with with lots of yummy food and cake.  Congrats Chris and Marissa Eye!
