“For Better or Worse” – by HydrangeaHussy
Scheana’s wedding day is finally here! I’m sure that someone from Sur will ruin it and my bet’s on Kristen. Scheana arrives at Lisa’s house to discuss the wedding. The rehearsal dinner is at Sur, so that Scheana can use her employee discount. As if Bravo isn’t footing the bill. They discuss the wedding budget, which has gotten a little out of control. A few summers ago, Scheana was injured and she has now received her settlement check. That allowed her to triple her wedding budget. Scheana requests 300 bottles of LVP sangria for the wedding. She’s worried about Kristen, but thinks it’s rude to uninvite her days before the wedding. Lisa suggests that Kristen be uninvited but can’t tell Scheana what to do.
The boys are standing on a street corner, drinking beer from paper bags. These boys are so classy! Tom tells us that he and Ariana don’t really talk about weddings. Other Tom wants to get married and have a family, just not right now. I wonder if he’s told Katie that? Jax makes lots of snarky comments about how Shay’s life is over because he’s getting married. They walk down the street to get haircuts and shaves. Shay isn’t nervous yet and worries that he’s going to cry at the wedding.
There are 40 people are the rehearsal dinner. Scheana and Shay’s entire families are in attendance. Scheana tells us that she is having a slumber party with the girls on Saturday nights, and the wedding is on Sunday. James attends, but Kristen can’t because she isn’t allowed at Sur. Katie is a little envious because Other Tom isn’t ready to get married. She is ready and is tired of Other Tom’s excuses. I remember being that age and thinking that marriage is the end goal, rather than just finding someone who treats you right. Tom and James have begun mending fences. They discuss the Miami Girl situation. Tom explains that Kristen orchestrated the whole thing and continues to deny sleeping with Miami Girl. James doesn’t buy it because Miami Girl described Tom in details. James doesn’t care, but Kristen is still mad. Tom shows James a text from Kristen asking Tom to hang out. James admits that their relationship isn’t normal. Tom doesn’t want to see James hurt by Kristen the way that he was. James will probably run to Kristen and tell all.
The girls arrive at the wedding venue. It really is a beautiful location. Scheana begins rearranging the setup. She found her wedding coordinator on Instagram for a steep discount. That’s ok because she already knows what she wants, so the coordinator just has to make it happen. Pandora arrives with cases of LVP sangria.
Kristen and James meet for lunch. James tells Kristen about his conversation with Tom, but spins it to seem like Tom accosted him about his relationship with Kristen. Kristen is mad that Tom ambushed her boyfriend when she wasn’t there to defend herself. She thinks that Tom is obsessed with her life because he spoke to James about her. Umm, he wasn’t that one who befriended a stranger in an attempt to break up a relationship. Kristen is the one who has been obsessing. James isn’t happy that Kristen is still texting with Tom. He tells Kristen that his feelings were hurt by that, but Kristen blows it off. She tells James that she still goes through times of caring about Tom. I think she rushed into something serious with James before she was over Tom.
Back at the wedding venue, Scheana distributes personalized wine glasses to all of her bridesmaids. Even though Katie isn’t a bridesmaid, she is in attendance. Scheana and Katie are both happy that they moved on from their fighting. Scheana and her mother share a bonding moment just before bedtime. By morning, wedding prep is well underway. There are tons of flowers being delivered and the girls are having breakfast. Hair stylists and makeup artists arrive to get the girls ready. Pandora goes through a list of things that went wrong at her wedding that Lisa just handled. That’s the kind of support you need on your wedding day – someone to handle the issues so you don’t even know about them! While getting her hair done, Scheana realizes that she left Shay’s wedding gift at home. She calls Kristen to pick it up on her way to the wedding. And that’s how Kristen is going to get into the bridal villa to annoy Ariana. Ariana isn’t comfortable having Kristen there, but Scheana doesn’t think that Kristen will cause a scene. I’m Ariana on this one, Kristen will cause a scene.
The boys are beginning to arrive at the groom’s suite. Shay says that he isn’t nervous, but he’s shaking. Tom got Shay a tuxedo jacket for his wedding gift. It’s a white jacket with his name embroidered on the underside of the collar. At least it can only be seen when the collar is flipped up.
Kristen arrives with the wedding gift. She isn’t dressed yet, but plans to get her hair and makeup done there. How did that happen? She wants to annoy Ariana and Katie while she’s there. Scheana tells Kristen that they are leaving soon, so she doesn’t know who will do her hair and makeup. Umm, if I hadn’t arranged to have my hair and makeup done there before the wedding day, I wouldn’t show up expecting it. Scheana breaks out the Fireball and shot glasses for a pre-wedding drink. She and her mother head to a suite near the wedding site to finish getting dressed, but she can’t remember where the suite is. They finally find it. I must admit, the wedding site is beautiful. Tons of pink and white flowers (my favorite colors!), flowing champagne, and a fountain. The guests begin arriving. Carmen and Jax arrive together, even though she isn’t Jax’s date. He thinks that he just needs to do a little more charming to win her back. He also likens himself to George Clooney, saying that he will wait awhile longer before getting married. I feel sorry for whoever he tricks into marriage. Kristen can’t help but take a swing at Lisa by telling us that Scheana’s wedding is just as beautiful as Pandora’s, but didn’t cost as much. Lisa is impressed with how well Scheana has pulled everything together.
Finally, the guests are seated. Scheana’s dress is on. Well, sort of dress. It’s a skirt and beaded crop top. They begin making their way to the aisle. It’s 6pm and the guests are waiting, but the boys aren’t there yet. Scheana is getting upset by their tardiness. The wedding coordinator hurries the boys to the altar, but they can’t get there because Scheana is in the hallway. She has to hide in a closet while the boys walk through. They are now 20 minutes behind schedule. Finally, Shay appears and the wedding begins. Tina begins singing before Scheana is ready, so she refuses to walk down the aisle. They decide that Tina must start over because Scheana has to be out there when Tina reaches a specific point in the song. Tina finishes, but Scheana is nowhere to be found. The wedding coordinator tells Tina to start singing again. They really should have done a run-through before the wedding day. Tina begins the song again, and Scheana walks down the aisle. I love seeing the look on the groom’s face when his bride appears! They exchange vows and are married! I’ll admit, I teared up a little. I love weddings.
