“Guys calm down,” I say to my bridesmaids: Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Barbara Palvin, Candice Swanepoel, Jesy Nelson, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Hailee Steinfeld, Elsa Hosk, Taylor Hill, Romee Strijd and Emily. They all were running around, trying to do things and they were more nervous than me.

“Guys, I am the one getting married. Why are the all of you running around?” I ask laughing.

“It’s because our best friend is getting married,” everyone says in unison and we burst out laughing.

I have chosen 12 of them as my bridesmaids and none of them as my maid of honours as they all were a special part of my life. This was an intimate wedding. Only friends of mine and Axl’s and their partners were allowed. Well our parents and close family members as well.

I didn’t want paparazzi running around at my wedding, taking interviews and pictures or anyone to leak any information about any one of us, so intimate it is.

I was getting married in Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire. This was the place I always wanted to get married in and I am right now. I was getting my hair and makeup done while the bridesmaids were done with theirs and were chatting.

I had asked them to wear anything they like because I didn’t want to be the kind of bride who forces her bridesmaids to wear what I like. I wanted all of them to look unique. But I had asked them not to wear black because I wanted to have a positive vibe.

“Guys the letter’s here,” Gigi screamed as she brought the letter for me to read.

“Dear Lexi,

I still remember how beautiful you looked the day you came to my house. I saw the way you were talking to Hannah and I immediately knew that you were a good person by heart. I hopelessly tried flirting with you but you turned me down,” I pause because all of us were laughing, “After multiple efforts of trying to win you and of being a dick, I finally had you. My relationship with you has matured and grown so strong that nothing can possibly destroy it. You are the kindest, funniest, smartest and hottest person I have ever known. No offence ladies,” and we laugh again but tears were welling up in my eyes. “I knew that you were the one for me when we first started dating 6 years ago. I thought that I will never find love in my life again but I guess I was wrong. You are honestly the best thing that ever happened to me. You are like an angel that was dropped from heaven that was specially crafted for me. You are one of a kind Lexi and I will love you forever. Love- your Axl,” I finish and we all had tears of happiness.

“Dear Axl,

You were the only one I had eyes for even though there were plenty of guys at the Uni because there was something about you that made me choose you over and over again. You always bring the best out of me and encourage me in everything I do. You have honestly been a huge part of my life and my success in everything. I possibly can’t thank you enough for everything you did for me but I can show you love for that. And this love will stay forever because that is how much you did for me. No matter how long we have been dating for, I still go weak in my knees when I see you. I am your biggest fan and will always support you throughout your life. It never gets boring with you, even if we are talking about soil. Yes I do remember our “talk” about the soil while we couldn’t sleep. You make everything interesting for me Axl. They say that if you wait long enough, you will get amazing things at the end and I guess I got mine. I will love you no matter what happens in the future. I love you more Axl. Love- Lexi, your to-be-wife in 1 hour,” I write and send Hailee to deliver the letter to him.

I got ready and sat in my dress and had 30 minutes left for my turn to step out of my room. The ceremony was starting in 20 minutes.

“You are not allowed to see the bride now. It is bad luck,” Perrie says and I hide myself thinking it was Axl at the door.

“Chill, I am not Axl. I am his best man, Shawn Mendes,” Shawn says as he enters and I stop hiding myself.

“Lexi, Oh my god! You are the most beautiful bride I have ever seen,” he says coming to hug me. Shawn and I were good friends but him and Axl were inseparable.

“Thanks, but what brings you here,” I ask pulling apart.

“Oh they asked me to check if all of you are ready because the ceremony is starting in 5 minutes,” he says before walking out of the door to tell the management people that we are ready.

The bridesmaids hug me and walk out of the room holding flowers. I saw them getting paired up with the guys.

2.Liam Payne and Hailee Steinfeld

So I guess this was it. I am going to get married. I do not know from where this comes but I am nervous. I wasn’t before. Suddenly I feel nervous. What if Axl runs away thinking he made a mistake?
