Have you ever embarrassed yourself by arriving at a wedding dinner a week ahead of time?
It happened at ours 20 years ago when a husband-and-wife friends of our family arrived at the dinner venue a week early and we happened to be there for a food tasting session. It was quite embarrassing.
Naturally we offered them seats at the table. Naturally they declined and left very quickly.
It was our turn to do the same this very evening!
The only consolation was that there weren't anyone we know to witness our boo-boo. We quickly scrambled away and pretend to be none the wiser.
