Your wedding day… the day that’s supposed to be the best day of your life, the one which marks the moment you and your partner have officially decided you want to be in each other’s loves forever.
A lot of women probably dream of that day, how they will gaze into their partner’s eyes and lovingly read out the scumbag’s affair texts… wait, what?
There’s of course, a backstory to this statement. A woman known only as Casey shared the story of how her wedding day didn’t exactly turn out the way it was planned to. Far from it actually.
See, the night before her wedding, she was out celebrating with her friends when she received a number of messages from an unknown number. The messages included screenshots of text conversations between Casie’s fiance, Alex, and another woman.
Some of the texts read: “This weekend. You and I. It is on, hot stuff. Bring your A game,” and “Your body is f*cking incredible. And sh*t do you know how to use it. I wish my GF had half the skills you do.”
Along with the screenshots, there was a message that read: “I wouldn’t marry him. Will you?” as well as pictures of this other woman with Alex, and the entire story of how their affair began.
Shocked, knowing that it was true, Casey didn’t heed her friends’ suggestion of calling off the wedding at once but decided to think it through the night. The next morning, she had a plan.
She went along with everything that morning, putting on her dress, and even walking down the altar. However, when she reached Alex’s side, instead of reading her vows, she turned to their joined family and friends and said: “There will be no wedding today. It seems Alex is not who I thought he was.”
Among the shocked gasps, and Alex trying to reach for her, she proceeded to read out the text messages between Alex and the other woman she had received last night. Alex then went pale, she explained, and fled the church, with his best man at his heels.
After that, she turned back to the crowd and told them: “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.”
She also said that the celebration still ended up being “one hell of a party”, so I guess there’s that.
