Bride replaces wedding vows with fiancé’s cheating text messages
A heartbroken bride has confronted her fiancé at the altar of her wedding ceremony after finding out that he was cheating on her the night before their big day.
Casey* was celebrating her final night of being unmarried with her bridesmaids when she received a text message from an unknown number, reported Whimn.
Casey was expecting a congratulatory message but instead received a series of screenshots from a conversation involving her boyfriend of six years, Alex*, and another woman.
The conversations between Casey’s boyfriend and the ‘other’ woman, who she described as looking the “complete opposite of her”, went back months.
The sender wrote to Casey: “I wouldn’t marry him. Will you?”
The texts also included selfies of the pair and immediately Casey knew “there was no questioning the legitimacy” of the screenshots.
Casey said every message was a “dagger to her heart”, but didn’t know what to do as the wedding would be taking place in a few hours and it was already paid for.
So she hatched a plan for the next day.
“I was going to go ahead with the wedding as expected, and ‘out’ him in front of our friends and family,” she said.
After walking down the wedding aisle the following day, Casey announced there would be “no wedding” instead of reading her vows.
“It seems Alex is not who I thought he was,” she told her guests, before reading out every single message he had sent to the other woman.
"Your body is f***ing incredible. And s** do you know how to use it. I wish my GF (girlfriend) had half the skills you do."
"I miss you so much…I’ve never had this kind of connection before."
All colour left Alex’s face and Casey let her weeping eyes rise and meet his.
The embarrassed groom didn’t have anything to say but walked out of the church in shame with his best man close behind him.
“I love all of you and as horrible as this is, I’m glad you all are here,” Casey bravely told her guests.
“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.”
Although it was not the day Casey has planned, she said despite the heartbreak, the reception was “one hell of a party”.
