It’s not unusual for brides to experience last minute nerves.
But one bride’s case of cold feet was a little more extreme after she fell in love with her male wedding planner and nearly called off the big day.
The bride-to-be apparently tried to walk away from her wedding just five days before she was due to tie the knot, according to a thread on Reddit where the whole story was spilled by a friend of the wedding planner.
“He had a bride who called him up a few days before her wedding and told him she couldn’t go through with the wedding because she was in love with someone else,” they wrote, adding their friend was “straight” with great “eye for detail”.
Bride’s shock declaration
The forum user ‘ClassicJenny’ said the conversation went something like this:
Bride: “I can’t marry him, I just don’t love him anymore, I think I’m in love with someone else!”
Him: “What do you mean you’re in love with someone else!? Your wedding is in 5 days!”
Bride: “Well…. I’m in love with you. You just GET me! I’ve never met anyone else like you!”
Him: “Do you know how much your parents are paying me to get you?!”
While the bride did eventually marry her groom five days later, users have praised the planner for the way he handled the difficult conversation.
“It’s probably happened more than once, he was prepared,” one person wrote.
“She probably expected to hear ‘We have special connection, that’s why I get you,’ instead he told her ‘I’m getting paid by your parents to understand what you want’,” another added.
The poor groom
However other users were more concerned for the groom who had unwittingly married a woman who clearly doesn’t love him.
“Poor groom. Lol. Hope she doesn’t fall in love with a cabana boy on the honeymoon,” one said.
“She probably didn’t love her fiancé,” another agreed.
Luckily, ‘ClassicJenny’ elaborated on how she came to fall in love with her friend, pointing out they’d been working “very closely” together for a year in the build up to the big day.
“I have no idea if they are still married or not, but I can’t imagine there is much hope for them,” she said.
