An Australian bride became an instant legend on her wedding day when, upon discovering her fiancé dodge,, she read his incriminating texts at the altar instead of her vows. The woman, who chose to remain anonymous, told her story to the Australian website Whimn. She found out the truth about her fiancé, nicknamed “Alex” in the piece, the night before her wedding. She and her best friends were punt it in a fancy hotel room when she received a text from a number she didn’t recognize.
“I wouldn’t marry him. Will you?” the message read, and with it came screenshots of exchanges between Alex and another woman—some from months before, others just days.
“I wish my GF had half the skills you do,” one of the texts read. “I’ve never had this kind of connection before,” read another. “Every word [felt] like a dagger in my heart and my wedding was only hours away,” the woman told Whimn reporter Danielle Colley. “How could I cancel when everyone had already traveled to be there and everything was paid for?” Instead of calling the wedding off, she decided to exact reprisal. When the big day came, she threw on her dress, grabbed her bouquet, and walked down the aisle as her friends and family members watched. However, when she reached Alex,
she turned to the crowd and revealed there wouldn’t be a wedding that day.
“It seems Alex is not who I thought he was,” she said before reading all his miss texts aloud to the people in attendance. “With each word, more color left Alex’s face,” the woman said. “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, scare.” The reception didn’t go to waste, though. The bride and her friends instead chose to celebrate “honesty, finding true love, and following your heart even when it hurts.”
Sounds like one eternal damnation of a party to us.
