Wedding days are a nerve-racking time for most involved, but usually it’s the good kind of nerves. You know the type: butterflies in your stomach, your heart racing in anticipation for the next step in your life.
Casey*, one bride-to-be experienced a completely different type of nerves though when she stood at the alter and revealed the sordid details of her husband-to-be’s affair to her wedding congregation.
You see, the night before her wedding she revealed a number of texts from a number she didn’t recognise, exposing her fiancé’s double life and turning her world upside down.
In a post she wrote on Whimn, Casey says: “Alex* and I had been together for six years. I felt he was The One instantly. Our families became friends, our lives were entwined, and I believed we’d live happily ever after.”
While hanging out with her friends in the hotel before her wedding on the night before, Casey reveals that she received a text message from an unknown number that left her heartbroken.
“But this text wasn’t like the other wishes of luck and love. This text took us all by surprise and changed everything in the heartbeat. The message was a series of screenshots from a number I didn’t recognise. The accompanying message simply said, “I wouldn’t marry him. Will you?”
The text messages included selfies of the pair, with multiple screenshots of their exchanges that dated not only months, but days before the wedding. According to the Whimn post, the text messages included comments from her fiancé saying:
“This weekend. You and I. It is on, hot stuff. Bring your A game.”
“Your body is f*cking incredible. And shit 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’ing you. I’ve never had this kind of connection before.”
Her friends demanded she call off the wedding but she couldn’t think straight, so she decided to sleep on it instead. When she woke, she claims she knew exactly what to do.
She would go ahead with the wedding, but instead of reading her vows she would ‘out’ Alex as a cheater, reading the texts to their family and friends.
She walked down the aisle, turned to the crowd as she reached the alter and said:
“There will be no wedding today. It seems Alex is not who I thought he was.”
As soon as the words left her mouth, she said a ripple of shock went through the church before Alex attempted to grab her hands. She resisted, taking out her phone and reading the messages out loud.
As she did, she claims the colour drained from the groom’s face before he walked out of the church, his best man following him.
She then turned back to the crowd and said:
“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.”
Despite her allegedly finding out the man of her dreams was nothing of the sort, the newly-single bride said there was ‘one hell of a party’.
So who’s the real winner?
