One bride was gearing up for the happiest day of her life when she discovered some truths about her husband-to-be that blew her mind. She found out he was cheating, but it was so close to the wedding she didn’t know what to do. A bride’s wedding day is meant to be the most special of her life, though this was anything but. It was memorable, but not for the reasons this woman would have been hoping for. This is how one bride found out about her cheating partner what she did next.
It was the night before Casey’s wedding, and she was super excited. Casey was in a very fancy hotel room, looking forward to the huge party she and her husband-to-be were going to throw. She had known for a long time that she and Alex were going to be very happy together and after dating for six years, now was the time for marriage.
Little did Casey know her heart was just about to break.
The women in the hotel with Casey that night were as excited about the following day as she was. Casey was spending her last night of unwed life with those closest to her, and she was having a great time. Her phone was buzzing as people were sending their best wishes and messages of excitement.
It wouldn’t be long before Casey got to see many of these people texting her face to face, but she wouldn’t be the glowing bride everyone was expecting. Some bad news was about to come Casey’s way thanks to that phone that kept on buzzing.
Knowing Alex was the one
After dating Alex for six years, Casey knew she had found ‘the one’ and that they were going to spend the rest of their lives happily married. She knew after meeting him all that time ago that he was the one for her and over the years their lives became intertwined. Casey and Alex’s families all knew each other, and they were just one big happy group of people.
There were no signs that anything was wrong, and the couple seemed destined to live happily ever after. Once more Casey’s phone lit up, and she strolled over to it confidently.
Taking Casey by surprise
Casey had been receiving well wishes from all of her friends that evening. She was expecting to discover one more person who was happy for her when she picked up her phone, but that’s not what she saw.
The mood in the room had been filled with excitement before Casey received her latest text, but shortly after it changed completely. There was a message that simply said, “I wouldn’t marry him. Would you?” This was very unexpected for Casey because as far as she knew Alex was great and there was no way anything would stop her from marrying him.
There was more
It wasn’t just the cryptic message that Casey received on the night before her wedding day. The bride-to-be was also sent plenty of screenshots by someone anonymous. The screenshots were filled with conversations between the mystery texter and Casey’s partner, Alex.
Casey explained to Whimm.com that she didn’t recognize the number, but the conversations were definitely between this person and Alex. Not only were there numerous conversations inappropriate for a man about to marry the love of his life to have, but there were pictures. The pictures showed another woman with Casey’s partner, and they looked pretty comfortable with each other.
The opposite of Casey
Casey looked at this other woman with her husband-to-be and realized she was the complete opposite to her. Where Casey had blonde hair and fair skin, this woman had dark hair and olive skin.
The selfies of the pair were disturbing enough, but there was some proof that this was a recent relationship, and not someone digging up Alex’s past. Judging by the dates on these messages, Alex had been with the women pretty recently.
When she looked at the dates and times of the screenshots, Casey could see that Alex had been with this woman not so long ago. In fact, they ranged from months ago to only a couple of days before the wedding.
Even though Alex knew he was due to marry Casey, he was seeing another woman days before. Casey said her brain just couldn’t understand what was happening, but there was no denying they were real.
Adding things up
Casey admitted that when she stopped and thought about some of the little moments between her and Alex, it dawned on her what he’d done. Alex would have been telling lies to Casey to cover up the fact he was going to see another woman behind her back.
Casey said she realized she was a “fool” after receiving the messages from the other woman. She admitted that the words were like daggers in her heart.
The gory details
Some of the messages Casey received from the other woman didn’t pull any punches. They were conversations between her and Alex, so they didn’t make for easy reading as far as Casey was concerned. Alex said he wished his girlfriend (Casey) had half as many skills as this other woman he’d been texting.
Another message read, “This weekend. You and I. It is on,” which was then followed by, “Bring your A game.”
Just hours away
This was happening on the night before she married Alex, so Casey didn’t know how to cancel it. She worried about all the people who had traveled to witness the ceremony and didn’t want them to have made those journeys for absolutely nothing.
Everything had already been paid for, so was there even any point in canceling when it had got this far? That was the least of her worries though, and Casey had to think about Alex.
After taking a minute to comprehend what she’d read, Casey said she burst into “shamed and broken tears.” Casey’s girls had her back and were urging their friend to call off the wedding. They were threatening violence against Alex and insisted Casey get him on the phone.
Her friends wanted Casey to put an end to this, but it wasn’t so easy for her. How could she just drop everything so close to the wedding?
She loved Alex
Despite the fact Casey’s friends were urging her to call the wedding off, she still loved Alex. This wedding had been planned for months, and Casey admitted she was too shocked and sad to be angry.
At that moment, she still wanted to marry Alex, and she chose not to call him after receiving those messages. It was going to be a sleepless night for Casey as she struggled to figure out she should do.
Making a decision
After not sleeping a wink, Casey felt like she’d come to a conclusion about what to do at the wedding. She had been awake thinking about what her plan was going to be, and finally, she’d cracked it.
Her best friends had all fallen asleep, so now it was time to wake them all up and explain how the wedding day was going to work out. Casey told her friends that the wedding was happening.
Casey told her friends she was going to make Alex think that the wedding was continuing as normal but she would ‘out’ him in front of everyone. All of Alex’s friends and family were going to learn about what he had been doing behind Casey’s back.
Then at least Casey’s family and friends would be there for her to lean on once the horrible truth had finally been revealed. It was time to get ready.
Putting on the dress
A bride’s wedding dress is meant to be one of the most special things they will ever wear. Casey said her dress now felt like nothing more than a “costume” as she made her way to her wedding ceremony. It was a dream dress, but now it was going to be the outfit she never got to wear with any joy.
As Casey walked down the aisle, she said Alex could tell she wasn’t happy.
No idea what was coming
Even though Alex could tell that Casey wasn’t very happy, he still had absolutely no idea what had made her feel this way. He might have just thought she had some troubles with her hair or makeup, but this was much bigger than that.
If Alex didn’t know what was bothering his longtime partner of six years, he didn’t have to wait too long to find out. Casey was getting ready to say some words.
Standing at the front
Not many people are comfortable standing in a room filled with people and speaking to them all. Casey said she looked out into the room of loved ones and remembered how excited they all were. She said her hands were shaking as she prepared herself to speak, but it was her insides that were the worst.
Casey’s insides were “quivering” as she prepared to drop the bombshell that she had only just learned last night.
Casey knew this was the last moment that she and Alex would be considered a couple before she spoke about his infidelity. It was meant to be the happiest day of her life, but it was the end of her dream relationship.
Not only was this coming to an end, but her friends and family were all there to witness it. With the nerves threatening to get the better of her, Casey began to speak.
Telling the truth
Casey began her speech by announcing, “There will be no wedding today.” She went on to say that Alex was not the person she thought he was, which sent shockwaves through the room. No one was more surprised by the news than Alex, who immediately went to grab Casey’s hand.
She was ready for this though and had a surprise waiting for him when he reached out to the woman he had been cheating on.
Reading the messages
As Alex grabbed for Casey’s hand, she lowered her flowers and revealed what she was holding, her phone. Casey decided to read every single message that the other woman had sent her yesterday, including some intimate details.
She said that with every new message she read out, she could see the color draining from Alex’s face. Perhaps Alex knew he’d eventually get caught, but he probably didn’t imagine it would be on his wedding day.
Casey had been in tears as she read out the messages sent to her last night and she raised them to meet Alex’s. He had plenty of words for this other woman via text message, but he couldn’t give Casey just one at this moment.
Alex left the church pretty quickly, followed by his best man when Casey was done. Casey said Alex’s family looked on at the situation in horror after hearing the messages.
Now that Alex had left, Casey spoke to the guests in the church once more. She told them that she loved them all and even though it was horrible, she was glad they were all there. Casey said there wasn’t going to be a wedding reception anymore that day, but there would be a “celebration of honesty.”
They would also be celebrating, “finding true love and following your heart,” even though Casey was hurting badly.
A big party
After Casey made her second announcement, she said there was applause and cheering in the room. She didn’t know what the correct response to the situation was, but that was how she chose to deal with it.
It wasn’t the wedding she had been planning, but she did admit it was a great party. Casey didn’t have her fairytale ending with Alex, but it looks as though she found out about him just in time.
