She never would have guessed she would be more excited to take the dress off than she had been to put it on for the first time.
I knew, of course, I knew. They thought they were getting away with something. I saw the late night texts, the constant eye contact and giggles at all the pre-wedding showers. I should have known better than to make Lisa my maid of honor. After all she had tried to steal every other boyfriend I had in college. Why should my fiance be any different?
When I saw them slink away at the rehearsal luncheon, I knew my plan had worked. I had texted each of them a room number and a time. It was easy enough to book an extra room at the hotel. I know I shouldn't have done that to Daddy but I thought I left my wallet in "my" room. He was a dear to get it for me.
The look on Brian and Lisa's faces was classic when Daddy walked in. I couldn't resist tagging along. Chaos ensued. Daddy started yelling, Lisa went running & crying into the bathroom. The rest of the wedding party came crashing in when they heard the racket. Brian tried what he could to maintain his shattered dignity. And then all eyes turned to me.
I blew Brian a kiss, a wink at Brian's hotter-than-hot best friend, grabbed the bottle of champagne Brian had so thoughtfully provided, hugged Daddy and bolted.
Shedding that dress I never felt better. Who knew my wedding day would also be my Independence Day!
Author's note: I may have ran a little over but I had so much fun participating in my 1st ever FFF. Enjoy your weekend!
