'Wires crossed' means the situation got confusing, where one person assumed something different from the second, as if they are talking from different points, if that makes sense. In this sentence, it is because the two people though a certain date was on different days.

'Wires crossed' basically just means that there's been a misunderstanding. As in this case, there has been a misunderstanding over the dates.
