Unfaithful Bride Gets Unmasked At Wedding-Fiction!

 

 

 

bullet Summary of eRumor:
The setting is a large, expensive wedding reception.  The groom thanks everybody for coming, thanks the father of the bride for the nice wedding, then says he's got a special gift for everyone who came.  He tells the guests the gift is in an envelope taped underneath the bottoms of their chairs.  The guests open the envelopes to find 8 x 10 pictures of the bride having sex with the best man.  The groom says a couple of expletives to the bride and the best man, walks out of the reception, and gets the marriage annulled the next day.   The email congratulates the groom for exacting such perfect revenge on the bride. 
bullet The Truth: 
This story is a frequently told urban legend that has been around for quite a while, long enough to be regarded as an urban legend for which there has never been any proof.

In 2008 a version began circulating that someone had turned into a parody of a popular MasterCard commercial:

"
Elegant wedding reception for 300 family members and friends...$32,000.
Wedding photographs commemorating the occasion....$3,000.
Deluxe two week honeymoon accommodations in Maui....$8,500.The look on
everyone's face when they see the 8x10 glossy of the bride humping the
best man....PRICELESS.

There are some things money can't buy, for everything else there's
MASTERCARD!!!"
A real example of the story as it has been circulated:

Version #1

What A Wedding

This is actually true - it was in the local newspaper and even Jay Leno mentioned it! 

Below is a true story about a recent wedding that took place at Clemson University:

This was a huge wedding with about 300 guests. After the wedding, at the reception, the groom got up on stage at the microphone to talk to the crowd. He said that he wanted to thank everyone for coming, many from long distances, to support them at their wedding. He especially wanted new father-in-law for providing such a fabulous reception. To thank everyone for coming and bringing gifts and everything, he said he wanted to give everyone a special gift from just him.

So, taped to the bottom of everyone’s chair was a manila envelope. He said that this was his gift to everyone, and told everyone to open the envelopes. Inside each manila envelope was an 8x10 picture of his best man having sex with the bride. He had gotten suspicious of the two of them and hired a private detective to trail them weeks prior to the wedding. After he stood there and watched the people’s reactions for a couple of minutes, he turned to the best man and said "F--- you," he turned to the bride and said "F--- you," and then he turned to the dumbfounded crowd and said "I’m out of here."
He had the marriage annulled first thing that Monday morning.

While most of us would have broken off the engagement immediately after finding out about the affair, this guy goes through with it anyway as if nothing was wrong. His revenge: Making the bride’s parents pay over $32,000 for 300 guest wedding and reception. Letting everyone know exactly what did happen. And best of all, trashing the bride’s and best man’s reputations in front of all of their friends and their entire families... i.e. their parents, brothers, sisters, grandparents, nieces and nephews, etc. This guy has balls the size of church bells.
