As one's wedding draws closer, the nerves and feelings of excitement can be overwhelming. Couples try to prepare every detail of the significant milestone, from the thank you cards to the confetti.

Brides count down the days, giddy just thinking about when they will walk down the aisle. However, a woman from Florida heard devastating news days before she was set to say, "I do." The culprit? Her husband-to-be.

PLANNING THE PERFECT WEDDING

Kilee Manulak adored her fiancé and couldn't wait to spend the rest of her life with him. All the arrangements for their ceremony and reception had been made, and she waited eagerly for what was meant to be the best day of her life.

Manulak had a surprising message for the man she had been set to marry, and it included a sentiment nobody expected.

One week before the wedding, she received a text message from the love of her life — unaware that his words would break her heart and change her future forever.

THE SHOCKING TEXT

Manulak's husband-to-be revealed shocking news in 2015. He didn't want to go through with the wedding and told the hopeful bride to call off the big day. The woman shared:

"I was in shock, I really didn't know what to do. It was definitely heartbreaking. It was definitely devastating that he didn't want to marry me."

He told Manulak he had a change of heart and didn't feel the same about her anymore. Manulak experienced various emotions, and she didn't know what to do or say.

A WHIRLWIND OF EMOTIONS

First, Manulak "just went numb." Next came feelings of anger and devastation, and the jilted bride said:

"My maid of honor, my mom, and my family and all my friends just kinda helped me call people and just let them know the wedding was over. And, ugh!, I was just so devastated."

While many women would have moped about the significant change in plans, Manulak contacted the group of ladies that would've been bridesmaids, revealing an unexpected plan.

SHE DIDN'T WANT A PITY PARTY

Manulak and her bridesmaids dressed in their wedding outfits and made their way to a Color Fun Fest event in Tampa, Florida. Their dresses certainly drew attention and made spectators curious.

The ladies laughed and had fun as the event began, and they did something shocking. All of them tossed colorful powder on themselves — and their gowns. The bride's once-white wedding dress was stained, and she had the biggest smile.

Manulak shared: "I don't want a pity party. I want to have fun with it." She added:

"It was a wonderfully liberating experience. It was a lot of fun [and] I felt free."

"I definitely want to tell him 'thank you' for sparing me anything, heartaches down the road. And thank you for letting me go so I can find true happiness."

Despite experiencing one of life's biggest disappointments, Manulak made the best out of the ordeal, and in return, she was liberated. Sadly, she wasn't the only woman to have been jilted shortly before her wedding.

THE JILTED BRIDES CLUB

Cyndi Maisonneuve and Nicole Contos revealed their shocking stories of betrayal and heartbreak. Both women related to Manulak's pain, but they had good news for anyone in the "jilted brides club."

The former jilted brides found love and happiness again. Maisonneuve, left by her ex-fiance an hour before their wedding, had a serious boyfriend and was looking forward to the future.

THE BRIDE AND GUESTS WERE STUNNED

Contos' husband-to-be said goodbye to her in front of a packed Manhattan cathedral in 1997. To add insult to injury, he went on their honeymoon to Tahiti without her. She said:

"We couldn't believe that this was really happening. We had about 350 people in the church."

Admirably, Contos didn't sit around crying and turned her reception into a dance party for family and friends. She eventually found her "prince," and they were happily married with two kids.
