A woman was prepared to marry the man she loved above all else. However, she got several X-rated texts in the hours leading up to the wedding that proved her fiance had been seeing another woman for months. This distraught young woman thought about the wedding being canceled but soon thought of a better idea. She would take advantage of the situation and use his unfaithfulness to her benefit. She’d get the best vengeance at the Altar!
Let’s get back to the beginning of the story. Casey (names were changed) enjoyed the countdown to her wedding day with some of her closest friends before she received the messages. Their pre-wedding bash included, of course, a lot of champagne.
The Australian bride had spent six years with her fiance, Alex. She talked about how she instantly knew he was The One. Casey really believed that everything turned out perfectly. Their families became close as well. It was the making of an end to a fairytale. Or was it?
So Many Calls
She thought nothing of it when Casey’s phone buzzed with a new text message. She thought it was another person who would congratulate her and wish her well for the wedding. Casey walked across the room with a glass in her hand to read the new message, just as the bridesmaid commented on how busy the phone was that night.
Heartbreak & Horror
The message Casey received broke her heart, bringing her to tears. She was shocked and disgusted. As it turned out, Alex was not the honest and committed fiance that Casey believed he was. Alex had been with another woman for months, the text revealed, and now Casey had copies of the X-rated messages exchanged between him and the woman. There was all the evidence therein unpleasant detail.
There was one question alongside screenshots of the messages: “I wouldn’t marry him. Will you?” Casey became painfully aware of Alex’s serious betrayal when reading the texts. The texts ranged from months ago to just a couple of days before the wedding.
The Tears Came
When Casey realized that the messages were real, that was the moment. They displayed the ugly truth of what was going on. Tears began falling as she read them. “Every word was like a dagger in my heart,” Casey said.
A video called The Psychology of Cheating said that there are two main reasons for infidelity. The first is that the cheater probably sees a relationship issue. The second is that their partner has no romantic feelings for the stray party.
Dr. Burckhardt explains at the beginning of the video that a person can react to a problem by stepping into the arms of someone else “out of the relationship” The cheater, on the other hand, has to find this “romantic connection” somewhere else. That is when the “attraction for a person outside the relationship becomes all the greater.”
At the time it was happening, Casey most likely hadn’t thought about these things. After a sleepless night, she decided that she wouldn’t cancel it since the wedding expenses were already spent and people had arrived by then. She wanted, instead, to pay Alex back for what he had done to her.
The day of the marriage, Casey trembled with her nerves, just as any other bride would. But Casey thought of revenge instead of focusing on a happy life together. In an interview, she said, “This was supposed to be the happiest day of my life. Instead, I knew it was the end of my dream relationship, and everyone was going to witness it.”
A Beautiful Day
It seemed to promise a wonderful day ahead as the sun rose higher in the morning. Casey could not get past her sadness and anger. Her friends couldn’t do that either, but she asked them to go along with the day as if nothing was wrong. She wanted to make things seem normal to the guests, and Alex, more importantly.
Every minute felt like a full hour to Casey as the day progressed. For the guests’ sake, she did her best to keep up appearances and felt grateful that Alex was only due to arrive closer to the reception. Apart from that, as Casey was surrounded by friends and family enjoying themselves with nice food and plenty of laughter, the day would have been lovely. However, just under the surface, Casey knew things were going to take a turn, and soon.
Eventually, Casey said that as she walked down the aisle, anticipating the dramatic scene that would soon unfold, her dress felt more like a “costume” When she had no intention of reciting the vows, she reached her waiting, the groom. She put her bouquet down, took out her phone, and prepared herself to read out the text messages.
No Wedding Today
Casey said, “I stood at the front of the room in my wedding dress and looked out at the excited faces of our friends and family.” She continued, “My hands were shaking, but not nearly as much as my insides quivered.” Then she began her shocking speech, announcing that there would be “no wedding today.”
Then she covered all the embarrassing details about Alex and his mysterious woman. A lot of messages had sexual references, and they went into a lot of detail. One said, “Your body is f****** incredible. And s*** do you know how to use it. I wish my GF had half the skills you do.”
Another read, “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.” Although many of the messages were too descriptive, Casey thought it would be an effective way to humiliate Alex in the way he had humiliated her by reading them out to the guests.
Alex did not hang around for long, now that his secret was out. In a hurry, he left the church, disregarding his family’s shocked faces and leaving them all behind. That Casey would have the final word seemed fitting. She then told the guests that the rest of the wedding would be a party for all to celebrate instead.
Casey 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. Still, instead, there will be a celebration of honesty, finding true love, and following your heart even when it hurts.” Casey apparently had “one hell of a party” despite her broken heart.
It gained popularity and went viral online once the story came out and received more attention. Even Elle magazine had a digital poll for readers to vote if they had a cheating partner exposed at the altar as well. Around 60% of them said they were going to do just what Casey did. What did everybody else have to say, though?
A lot of respondents on IrishCentral, meanwhile, praised Casey for her actions. “A courageous woman who deserves and will certainly find someone better. I wish her luck and happiness.” Will Agee said something similar, “Wow! The very strong and forward-thinking of her! Honesty is the best policy with self and others! Blessing all!”
“Intolerant Liberal” even suggested that the silver screen could produce this story. He said, “Hollywood will no doubt be making a version, a rom-com, set in Boston, starring Brad Pitt as the baddie, Jennifer Aniston as the wronged, and a plethora of other B-list stars. There won’t be a dry eye in the house.”
People had a lot to say about it, of course, once the story was all over the internet. Many expressed their own views and what they would have done in Casey’s place if they had done so. Many people wished the bride well and praised her for her strength.
After this whole ordeal, one question remains: what is Casey going to do next? What about Alex? Will Casey decide to go on her own honeymoon to relax and adapt to this new reality? Is Alex going to try and apologize and call Casey back? Who knows for these two what the future holds… We can only wish Casey all the best for her future, even though she did not get the happy ending she hoped for.
Although this was a difficult ordeal to go through, we can’t help but think about the lesson that Casey must have learned in the process: make sure that first before others, you take care of yourself. It sounds kind of self-centered, we know. There is a saying on the matter, “You can’t pour from an empty cup.” It applies as well to self-care. Who will be there to help them if someone puts themselves last and only focuses on helping others?
Finding the right person for her is the one and the only thing we hope for Casey in her future. And we mean the right man for her by that. She’ll surely be the perfect one for her next time and finally, get the happy ending she wanted so badly.
The bride stopped her wedding; it’s not unusual for the groom to do the same. One bride, unnamed, had a worse situation, belief or not. Her sister revealed she was expecting while planning her wedding. Wouldn’t you be overjoyed if you were? Well, in this case, the bride wasn’t happy. In fact, she was so angry she took her sister out of the wedding so she wouldn’t ’cause problems’ with her pregnancy due to dress alterations. The bride went on to say how poorly timed this pregnancy.
The worst part of this bride’s awful attitude was that her pregnant sister had been trying for a baby for several years before this pregnancy occurred. Everything about pregnancy that the bride had to say was how inconvenient it was. A few months later, she moved quickly with her mother and wedding planner. During her meeting, the bride’s mother receives a call she needs to take. The call lasts throughout the meeting, and she seems to cry when the bride’s mother returns. As it turns out, the bride’s sister lost the baby.
Turn Of Events
With no hesitation, the bride said that since she was no longer pregnant, her sister could be at the wedding. Her mom froze. She says to the bride in a deadly soft voice that she won’t pay for the wedding anymore. Naturally, the bride panics instantly, looking horrified. She starts to scream and wave her arms, screaming questions at her now silent mother. The bride’s mother left, her back straight like a pole, trailing behind her with her screaming daughter.
Canceled By The Groom
The wedding planner was let go after the whole meltdown. Don’t worry, since she had no interest in planning this bridezilla’s wedding; she was wonderful with the entire arrangement. The entire wedding was canceled no less than twenty-four hours later. By whom? The groom himself.
No One Wears White
Another individual took the internet to unload their frustrations about a bride they didn’t get along with. This bride was marrying this Reddit user’s brother-in-law, and these two didn’t get along very well from the get-go. However, once the wedding planning began, things started to deteriorate.
This person was very close to her brother-in-law, who was soon-to-be-married. He was one of her closest friends, actually. Well, maybe the future bride was jealous of the customer, or maybe she just didn’t like her. Who knows from where the animosity is derived?
Even though it is not so traditional, the groom asked his sister-in-law to be one of his groomsmen. Still, the rest of the groomsmen did not mind at all. From there, between the bride and her sister-in-law, things began to go south. More than before, even.
The future bride was somewhat problematic. A few weeks after selecting the groomsmen, this individual received a call from the groom saying his fiance was not comfortable with the arrangement. Especially Stag Night. We should mention this person’s husband would also be there. The fiancee was worried that being a woman would cause problems. And so, instead of any kind of drama, this individual just let it slide.
Just as one would expect, the wedding began smoothly. However, the groom walks up to his sister-in-law at the reception, looking mortified. Then, just as the groom asks if she has another dress to change into, she sees the bride glaring at her. As it turns out, despite being a floral dress with a bit of white showing through, the bride thought the original poster’s dress was too white. So much so that either she changed her clothes or she left, she insisted. Naturally, this person simply left.
Maid Of Honor
We all know that some brides are almost as excited about their bachelorette parties as they are about their wedding. However, one bride took the party much too seriously. The maid of honor was having a difficult time with the bride.
It was her responsibility, as the maid of honor, to take care of several wedding-related matters. The bachelorette party, of course, is one of them. Sadly, there were things around that time that stopped her from doing what she had to do.
At the hospital, one of the family members of the MOHs was ill and took a turn for the worse around the party’s time. According to the doctors, the relative was only given several days to live. And so, to rant about her difficult situation, the MOH took Reddit. She spoke about the bride’s situation, but the bride did not realize that her bridesmaid might not be part of her party.
Unfortunately, a day or so before the party, said relative passed away. That same night, the bride called up the bridesmaid. The bride proceeded for ten minutes to talk about herself and her wedding struggles. She went on to tell the bridesmaid that she needed to get back to normality. Go to the bachelorette party as in, because they didn’t know how long the relative would suffer in any case.
Things have not ended well. The bridesmaid posted an update. She said that it turned out the bride was a bad friend. As a result, this poster simply could no longer bring herself to care for her. She simply warned others that even the nicest people could turn out to be different from what we believe.
While we are dealing with the subject of insensitive brides, this one is almost as bad. This bride had an evident vision in mind for her wedding. She posted a question online, asking if firing her MOH would be so bad for her. Why? Well, it’s difficult to explain.
It’s really not, actually. The bride wanted to kick her MOH out of the wedding party because her pregnancy’s weight had not been lost. This was three weeks after the MOH gave birth, we should mention. Yes. For three weeks. The bride raged that the MOH still looked pregnant and that by the wedding, which was three weeks away, she was not sure she would lose the weight.
The bride was most worried about the fitting of the MOH into her dress. Or rather, being unable to fit in. She wanted somebody to replace her with someone who could dress her as she was. The dress had been modified several times, and the bride had refused to change it again.
There isn’t an end to the story. Actually, the MOH did have a backup dress. The bride would disagree, however, with her wearing it. She refused, point-blank. Not only that, but the bride felt the need to make it clear that she was not the ‘fat-shaming’ of the MOH.
The internet had plenty to say on the issue, as one would expect, and none of it was good. People from all over the internet had their two-cents on that story. If you ask us, the rage could practically be felt through the computer screen.
