    is this sentence grammatically correct?

    If I showed up, I might have wrecked the wedding. Past action -- past implication.


    I think I should say "If I had showed up..." am I wrong?


    Thanks in advance.

    layla, you have been a member long enough to know that

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed'

    If I showed up/If I had showed up'
    would have been good for this.
