The nerves are always high on your wedding day. For most people, it's the good kind of nerves like butterflies in your stomach but for this bride, it was a completely different kind of nerves.
The night before her wedding, the bride, Casey found out her husband to be had been cheating on her right up until a couple of days before their wedding.
In a post on Whimm, Casey said that night, while enjoying a few drinks, she recieved a text from an unknown number. Thinking it was someone congratulating her, she opened it but instead it was screenshots of messages and selfies between her fiancé and another woman.
“This weekend. You and I. It is on, hot stuff. Bring your A game," one read.
“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,” read another.
“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."
"I burst into shamed and broken tears," Casey said. "My girls were threatening all manner of violence against him. They insisted I call him immediately and call the wedding off."
After a sleepless night, Casey came up with another idea. "I was going to go ahead with the wedding as expected, and ‘out’ him in front of our friends and family," she said.
On the day of the wedding, in front of all their guests, Casey took a big breath and said "There will be no wedding today, It seems Alex is not who I thought he is."
Casey went on to read each of her fiancé's cheating messages ""With each word, more color left Alex’s face," Casey recalled. "I let my weeping eyes rise and meet his, and he had not one thing to say. He stalked out of the church with his best man trailing behind him. His family looked on, horrified."
With her ex now gone, Casey invited everyone else to stay saying "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.”
One of the guests, who were obviously taking in all the drama, said "only his brother and two friends didn't go to the reception," but everyone else went and had the best time.
