She was in a total state of shock. Just like that, someone stole the spotlight on what was meant to be her big day. Not only was she angry, but she was disappointed too. Who would have thought that her best friend, of all people, would do such a thing? When the bride turned around, she saw the smirk on her bestie’s lips. This was the moment that it hit her. Seeing that big grin, this bride knew that her closest friend planned it all from the very beginning. You know what they say: hell hath no fury like a woman scorned!
She Had Always Dreamt Of Her Wedding Day
Emma had always been the sort of girl who dreamt about the day she would get married. Even before her boyfriend of the time asked for her hand in marriage, she had it all planned out from the roses to the wedding cake to the wedding dress. This was the reason she thought that everything was going to go well on the happiest day of her life. However, there was no way she could have seen this coming.
Supposedly The Happiest Day Of Her Life
The couple scheduled the wedding for the fall of that year. It was an exciting event because all of their loved ones would be there to celebrate their love. The two of them exchanged vows in the presence of their friends and family. The ceremony went as expected, with everyone earing up as the couple promised eternal love. Emma had no idea that one of the bridesmaids was about to put a damper on the big event.
Her Best Friend Stole The Show
Once the ceremony was over, the reception came next. Emma was glad that she could finally let loose after the stress of the planning and the wedding itself. At last, she would have the chance to eat, dance, and talk. All of a sudden, Sarah got up and walked away from the seat. The bridesmaid swayed as she took the microphone and asked for the attention of everyone in attendance. What was going on?
Taking About The Good Old Days
Sarah glanced at the bride and started to talk into the microphone. She slurred into the mic as she talked about the “good times” that she and Emma had shared over the years. The bride smiled as her friend shared memories from the past. It might have started out as a nice speech, but Sarah soon made an announcement that no one expected.
Veering Into A Whole New Direction
Even when they were younger, Emma knew that Sarah liked to be the center of attention. Despite this, her smile faltered when Sarah started to discuss her own relationship on the stage. The bride was confused about the direction this was taking. “Well, you all know that Josh and I have been dating for a year,” Sarah explained. Where did she plan to take her speech?
Time For An Unexpected Announcement
All of a sudden, her speech took a strange and sudden turn. She looked at Emma and raised her hand to show off something on her finger. “We’re getting engaged!” Sarah told everyone as she flaunted the shiny diamond ring on her finger. The guests were respectful enough to give her a round of applause and offer her their congratulations, but everyone was clearly confused. Emma, however, was shocked by the way her friend was behaving. The bride was starting to see red – and on her wedding day, no less!
The Bride Could Not Believe It
Emma did her best to act as if it did not bother her. Even so, she could not hide the disappointment that she felt. Did Sarah not respect her at all? Why would she want to one-up her on the biggest day of her life? When she looked at her friend, she saw that Sarah was enjoying the attention that she was craving. It was clear that she was pleased with herself. After seeing the smug look on her face, Emma snapped.
Time To Cook Up A Plan
A couple of days after her own wedding, Emma was still furious about what happened. She waited and waited for Sarah to apologize to her, but this never happened. It was clear that her friend tried to upstage her on the day of her wedding. What was worse was the fact that Sarah clearly did not feel remorse for what she did. It motivated Emma to come up with the most perfect revenge plan in history!
The Day She Had Been Waiting For
She kept it all a secret until the day of Sarah’s wedding. This time, Emma was the Maid of Honor while her two younger sisters were appointed the flower girls. The arrangement gave Emma the chance to put her plan in action. Once she got there, it was time for her to deal with the baskets for the flower girls.
From White To Blue
After making sure that no one was there to see her, Emma took out the white petals and put in blue ones that she had with her. She asked her sisters to keep quiet about it and to hide it from the bride. Sarah was only supposed to see them as they were being scattered down the aisle. She told them it was meant to be a surprise and tried to hide her giggle. To be fair, we are sure that Sarah did not expect it!
Not What She Expected At All
Can you imagine just how confused Sarah must have been to see the blue petals? It was not part of the plan and did not fit the theme whatsoever! Even though she was puzzled, there was no way she could bring it up then and there. Most of the bridesmaids in the wedding party were friends of Emma and attended the earlier wedding. It turned out that they were also in on the scheme!
Turning Into Bridezilla
It was only during the reception that Sarah got to ask why the petals had been blue instead of white. The flower girls, Emma’s sisters, said that they had no idea what she was referring to. The rest of the bridesmaids also feigned innocence. Furious, Sarah yelled at the wedding planner for not checking the baskets before the ceremony started. However, this was not all that Emma had up her sleeve…
Time To Deliver A Speech Of Her Own
Soon enough, it was time for the part that everyone was waiting for. The speeches were held in front of a huge screen with a loop of photos personally compiled by Emma for the special day. She used the remote to control the display. First, Emma went through pre-approved shots of the bride with their friends and threw in a couple of lighthearted jokes. They even took some of these photos at her very own wedding day! Sarah beamed the entire time, but she was completely unprepared for what was about to come next.
Getting Even At Long Last
By the time Emma neared the end of the slideshow, she said that Sarah was probably wondering why the petals had been blue instead of white. What could have caused this change of plans? Sarah was surprised to hear the Maid of Honor bring this up. This was when Emma went to the last slide. It was time for payback.
Revenge Is A Dish Best Served Cold
“Well, the truth is…” she started, acting overwhelmed. She went on, “…I’m pregnant!” The whole place went silent and stayed so until the awkward congratulations started. Emma turned to the bride, who looked both shocked and upset. The truth was that Emma was already five months into the pregnancy and wanted to share with everyone that she was expecting a boy. That was why she switched out the white petals for blue ones. On top of that, the last photo in the presentation was the ultrasound result.
They Kicked Her Out
Some people gasped and yelled as Sarah threw a fit. She even tried to knock her Maid of Honor down! The other bridesmaids said that Sarah had behaved nastily toward them by making them pay a lot of money for the dresses. In the end, she kicked out Emma. Even though they booted her out of the reception, the smile on her face stayed there.
The Family Was Furious With Her
Emma started to walk away, but other people went up to her. Some of the other guests congratulated her for executing such a flawless plan. Moreover, people came up to tell her that it had been a long time coming for Sarah. However, others simply did not approve and said that Emma ruined the reception. In fact, the groom had been so livid upon learning about the plan.
The Mom Of The Bride
Aside from the groom, the mother of the bride approached her as well. However, Emma was able to shrug off what the older woman told her by exclaiming, “Gentle, gentle! I am pregnant you know!” As she walked out of the venue, she was smiling to herself. At long last, someone had been brave enough to take Sarah down a notch.
Deliver Your Good News Appropriately
We have to admit that we are impressed by the patience that Emma displayed. You know what they say: revenge is a dish best served cold. Even though it was sad that their friendship ended like that, we agree that Sarah deserved it. Let this be a reminder not to jump the gun and wait for an appropriate moment even if you are excited about your own piece of news. You do not want to end up like Sarah, do you?
