On the morning of her best friend’s wedding, the groom surprised the maid-of-honor with a major bombshell! Unable to cope with the newfound knowledge, she quietly left the venue, leaving her best friend in a state of chaos on her big day. But was her decision to abandon her friend justified? Here’s the whole scoop, as shared on Reddit:
A Sudden Breakup
The Original Poster (OP) starts by explaining that she’d been in a serious, long-term relationship with her ex-boyfriend for four years. They’d been happy and considering their future together until one day, a year earlier, he suddenly broke up with her.
Her Best Friend Offered Comfort
Heartbroken, OP was grateful to have her best friend “Stacy” and her fiancé “Tom” there during the difficult period that followed. They offered her support throughout the breakup, being with her every step of the way.
Stacy Asked OP To Be Her Maid of Honor
So, when Stacy asked OP to be the maid of honor for her upcoming wedding, OP wholeheartedly said yes. She took up her duties with gusto and began preparations for her best friend’s big day.
Tom Wanted to See Her
Now fast forward to the wedding day itself. Tom, Stacy’s soon-to-be husband, asked OP to meet her early for breakfast before the festivities began. While OP found this a bit odd, she didn’t pay much heed to it, as she was, after all, the maid of honor. She assumed he wanted to give her something to pass to Stacy. She would never have expected what happened next…
OP Received Some Shocking News
Far from an innocent little chat, Tom revealed that Stacy had just told him she had an affair with OP’s ex-boyfriend, which is what ultimately resulted in their breakup. He said Stacy had confessed this to him so they could start their marriage with a clean slate. Apparently, he’d forgiven Stacy for her mistake and hoped OP might do the same.
OP Walked Out
Far from forgiving her, OP decided to walk out of the wedding. Since OP was the maid of honor and handled pretty much all the wedding responsibilities for Stacy, this had huge implications for the big day. Likewise, OP’s absence didn’t go unnoticed and, for one reason or another, caused word of the affair to get out.
Tom and Stacy Blamed OP
After the wedding fiasco, Tom and Stacy started slandering OP on social media. They claimed she’d ruined what should have been the best day of their lives. Some of the couple’s friends have also sided with them, saying she should have handled the news better and stuck it out until after the wedding. Were they right?
Reddit Was On Her Side
OP turned to Reddit seeking a second opinion. Most people sided with the OP, saying Stacy deserved what happened to her for cheating with her best friend’s boyfriend: “The person you call your best friend went behind your back and betrayed you. The Karma came right back to her like a boomerang.” However, she wasn’t the only guilty party…
Others Blamed Tom
Other people blamed Tom for choosing to divulge this information on their big day. As one Redditor commented: “What on Earth did they expect would happen by telling you? And on the wedding day. They knew they were playing with fire. They chose when to tell you this information.”
What Are Your Thoughts?
Do you think OP was right to ditch the wedding at the last minute? Or should she have fulfilled her maid of honor duties and confronted Stacy later? What would you have done? Let us know in the comments below.
