Our heroine found herself entangled in an unforgettable incident. This jaw-dropping tale of deceit and humiliation will leave you reeling.
The Expected Path
This happened about 20 years ago. For context, OP (the original poster) was raised Mormon, and it was expected that she would marry a returned missionary and have a temple wedding.
She Was Marrying Young
It had all started off well, as she began dating a returned missionary who proposed after a mere 5 weeks, and they began planning their temple marriage. OP was only 19 at the time.
They Broke the Rules
They had ended up having sex before marriage, and her fiancé, a man of integrity, said it would be wrong for them to get married in the temple, knowing they’d face significant judgment.
Everyone Gossiped About Them
Sure enough, there was a great deal of judgment from their friends. OP had become a topic of gossip, and she knew these “friends” were judging her. She weathered the storm, but barely.
Relating to a Fellow Outsider
OP saw a girl she had gone to high school with who belonged to the same ward as her, and who had gotten pregnant before marriage. OP felt for her, knowing she likely felt just as isolated as OP had.
OP wanted to let her know that she was there for her and that she still deserved respect. While helping this girl plan her wedding, the girl asked OP if she would be her bridesmaid.
OP agreed and then asked what she should wear. The bride-to-be said that because it was going to be a small wedding, anything in the wedding colors would be acceptable.
The Approved Dress
OP bought a dress in the bride’s chosen colors of red and black, showed it to her, and it was approved. The agreement was that OP would help out in the kitchen and with drinks at the reception.
The bride was planning a simple courthouse wedding and asked if OP could be at the reception hall helping to decorate and cook during the wedding ceremony. OP readily agreed, as her main goal was to assist her friend.
The Unpleasant Reveal
OP had been at the reception hall with other women, getting things ready, when the bride and groom arrived, followed by their wedding party and family.
To OP’s disbelief, the bride had another girl, someone OP had never met, as her bridesmaid!
The stranger was in a formal red dress and had been with the bride at the courthouse. OP felt utterly embarrassed but didn’t say anything.
The Awkward Coincidence
One of the women came up and commented on how OP just happened to match the wedding colors – an interesting coincidence. OP laughed it off, saying it was strange, while feeling mortified inside.
Facing the Aftermath
OP helped with some cleanup, and throughout, the bride completely ignored her. She left and never spoke to the bride again.
Reflection and Regret
She had felt humiliated and used. To this day, she can’t believe she never said anything to that backstabbing bride.
Although OP never confronted the bride, she has moved on and has a much more stable life outside of the Temple. She is happily atheist these days, and has overcome her shame. It seems that everything turned out just fine for this woman.
