A bride who found out her fiancé had been cheating on her the day before her wedding decided to swap the vows for the texts he sent his mistress...
The woman explained to Australian website Whimn that she was spending the night before the wedding in a hotel with her friends, when she received screenshots of the messages exchanged between her fiancé, whom she gave the pseudonym of Alex, and another woman.
She said: ‘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?
As well as screen grabs of the messages, there were also selfies exchanged between the two, and the bride says she instantly knew they weren’t fake.
‘The texts were dated from months to only days before. My brain simply could not compute WTF was going on. There was no questioning the legitimacy of these messages. I just knew.’
Faced with the horrible revelation that the man she was about to marry had been having an affair behind her back, the woman decided to still go through with the ceremony only to show their friends and family what kind of man he truly was.
She continued: ‘I walked down the aisle with leaden feet, my dream dress now just a costume. As he saw my face he knew this was not an ecstatic woman on her big day, but he had no idea what was coming. I arrived at the front of the room, took a big breath and I faced our friends, our parents and I told them the truth about Alex.
Once next to him, she revealed to guests that there wouldn’t be a wedding as she had found out who Alex really was.
Describing the moment she revealed her intentions, she added: ‘A ripple of shock went through the crowd and Alex tried to grab my hands but I put down my flowers to reveal my phone in my hand. I read every single message she sent me. With each word, more colour left Alex’s face.’
