Getting married is one of the most important things that a couple will ever do in the pursuit of their happiness.
The night before a wedding, you’ve probably heard about those wedding jitters, cold feet, second thoughts just before tying the knot. However, just hours before her big day, one bride-to-be had more than a nightmare scenario.
A woman Casey (not her real name) shared the unforgettable crazy moments of her life on her supposedly super grand wedding day.
But it turns out that on the on the eve of her wedding day, her much-awaited union with the man of her dreams, while she was in a hotel room with her best friends/bridesmaids enjoying some drinks before leaving singlehood, her phone buzzed from across the room.
She picked up her phone, thinking that it was another set of advanced wedding greetings. But this text message wasn’t like the other wishes of luck and love, she found the text messages to be a series of screenshots from a number she didn’t recognize.
She burst into shame and broken tears as she read the screenshots of text conversations between her husband-to-be Alex (not his real name) and another woman. While her friends rallied around her and insisted to call him immediately and call the wedding off.
“Every word like a dagger in my heart,” Casey wrote.
“This weekend. You and I. It is on, hot stuff. Bring your A game.
“Your body is f**** incredible. And s**t do you know how to use it. I wish my GF had half the skills you do.”
“I miss you so much. I can’t stop thinking about L, S, F** you. I’ve never had this kind of connection before.”
Followed by a text which read: “I wouldn’t marry him. Will you?”
Alex is the man whom she had been dating for six years. Six years, can you imagine how long that is?
According to Casey, the other woman was the complete opposite of her, she was blonde and fair while the other woman had dark hair and olive skin. It also appears that the texts were dated from months to only days before based on the dates of the conversation.
It was such a devastating revelation which, Casey had to admit, was true; she just knew.
But although her closest friends suggested that she immediately call Alex and call the wedding off, she felt in her heart that she needed more time to think things through. She was confused or devastated, she knew it wasn’t wise to act while she is angry.
She didn’t sleep all night, and as morning came, she had made a firm decision.
Casey walked down the aisle as everyone expected; all dressed up in her wedding gown as she made that walk to the altar towards Alex who was waiting for her. However, as she stood near her ‘groom’, she turned to all of their friends and family members and said, “There will be no wedding today. It seems Alex is not who I thought he was.”
Then she took out her phone and proceeded to read out the exchange of messages between her ‘groom’ and the other woman from her phone which she hid beneath her bouquet. With each word, Alex turned pale by the minute he stalked out of the church with his best man trailing behind him.
Casey wasn’t done yet, she faced her guests once more.
Despite all of this, she managed to keep herself together as she reportedly told the crowd: “I love all of you and as horrible as this is I’m glad you all are here. There will not be a wedding reception today, but instead, there will be a celebration of honesty, finding true love and following your heart even when it hurts.”
Indeed a celebration which still turned out to be “one hell of a party,” according to her.
