Two Trains Driving Toward Each Other

Last weekend my wife and I attended a wedding just south of Indianapolis. The ceremony began at 2:30 PM. Mapquest claimed a close to 4-hour drive, so we left a little before 10:30 AM. Check my math. We arrived just before 2:30 PM.....central time. Turns out some parts of Indiana are on Eastern Time. We missed the whole thing. My question is: would you have made the same mistake, and if you were in charge of the invites and you knew half the attendees were coming from Chicago, would you have included an EST notice on the invite? Note: We were not the only couple to arrive an hour "late", and many people told us that they would have done the same thing, but they were warned by some other attendees.
