Brooke watches Hope take in the room for her wedding and asks her if it meets her approval. Hope says it\s beautiful and thanks her mother before exclaiming that its her wedding day and grinning in joy. Hope says its amazing how fast everything is coming together. Brooke asks if she wants to wait a day or two but Hope makes it clear she doesnt want to do that. She says she has waited long enough and today Liam and her are going to stand at that altar and exchange vows.
She says tonight is their honeymoon before saying shes going to go upstairs to get ready. Hope thanks Brooke because none of this would have happened without her before bouncing upstairs. Coming down the stairs as Hope goes up, Ridge sees her happiness and asks Brooke if Hope doesnt know about Steffy not signing he annulment papers yet. Brooke admits that she doesnt know. Ridge asks if this wedding isnt a little risky then. Brooke says it would be if Steffy doesnt sign but says that she will because he is going to get through to her.
Steffy is shown looking at the annulment papers and looking unsure for a moment before Brooke and Ridge are shown again. Brooke tells Ridge that they cant let Steffy drag this out. Ridge says that its only been a few days. Brooke says that the marriage is over and Liam and Hope are ready to move on and Steffy is standing in their way and taking advantage. Ridge gets annoyed at that and reminds Brooke that Steffy is in pain. Brooke tells Ridge that Steffy said she is willing to wait this out and with Hopes stance on abstinence Steffy will then use her sexuality to entice Liam. Ridge tells Brooke she knows its more complicated than that.
Brooke says maybe it is but Liam and Hope are getting married to day and Steffy is signing those papers. She pleads with Ridge to help them and get Steffy to sign because hes the only one who can get through to her. She tells him not to let Steffy hurt Hope like this and not let her do that. Ridge sighs and looks unsure.

Liam comes in and Rick sees him in his tux and tells him he looks sharp. Liam says the room looks great. Rick leaves to go check on the preparations and once he leaves Liam says Rick has no idea, does he? Brooke says no, only Ridge, her and him know about the papers. Liam asks how they are going to pull this off. Brooke says Steffy is going to sign those papers and Ridge is going to see to it.

Katie and Donna tell him they have to get Hope ready but Rick says hes not leaving until he gives Hope some advice. Hope asks about what and Rick says the honeymoon.
The minister asks Brooke if there is some room he can get ready in. Brooke directs the minister before speaking with Liam who says they are cutting this close. Brooke says Ridge is going to get Steffy to sign those papers. Liam says maybe they should tell Hope but Brooke says no, Ridge is going to get through to Steffy and then Hope and him are going to have the most beautiful wedding.
Liam smiles and says he knows how much Brooke wants this for Hope. Brooke says almost as much as he does. Liam asks what if Ridge doesnt get through to Steffy but Brooke says they cant think like that. She says that Hope and him belong together and Steffy wouldnt be married to him if she hadnt intervened. She says this is going to work out. Hope and him are going to have a wonderful wedding. She firmly says that Ridge will get through to Steffy/
Ridge holds his daughter as she says she messed up and did things to drive Liam away. Steffy says she cant believe how she handled herself. Ridge says it was a complicated situation. Steffy says she doesnt know why she was so insecure. Ridge says she loved Liam and he loved her but he also had very strong feelings for Hope. Steffy says Hope is a sweet girl but Liam needs someone to challenge him. Steffy says he needs her. Ridge says when she talks like that she worries him. He says that Liam has made his choice and as hard as that is she needs to accept that. Steffy says she will, if Liam wants to be with Hope she wont stand in his way. She firmly says shes not giving him an annulment though. Ridge sighs and hugs his daughter.
Hope says she doesnt need such advice especially from her big brother. Katie says Hope is marrying a wonderful man and nothing is going to go wrong today or tonight. She says he should be happy for her. Rick says he is. He tells Hope he wants nothing but the best for her and if she tells him Liam is going to give her that then hell believe her. Hope smiles as Rick says hes still going to keep his eye on him though. Hope says okay and giggles and hugs her brother while Katie and Donna smile.
Brooke tells Liam that she wants this to be a day Hope remembers. Liam says he hopes Ridge would get back. Brooke says Ridge wont disappoint them. Liam laughs nervously and says if Hope only knew what was at stake here but Brooke says shes glad she doesnt know. She doesnt want anything to spoil this for her.
Hope comes down the stairs and talk to Liam. Brooke says she doesnt think Liam is supposed to see her before the wedding. Hope asks Liam if hes superstitious. He says no so Hope says then they have nothing to worry about. Liam says yes, they dont. Hope asks Liam where his dad is. Liam says he wont be attending. Hope says she figured as much. She says shes going to go upstairs to change before noting how pale Liam looks.
She says he is superstitious and tells him not to be as the life they have been dreaming about is starting today. She tells him she is all his before kissing him and going upstairs. Liam tells Brooke that if Ridge doesnt get through to Steffy, Hope is going to be devastated. Brooke looks worried.
Ridge says so Steffy hasnt signed those papers. Steffy says no. Ridge says not yet. Steffy gets up and walks away from him. Ridge tells her Hope thinks she signed those papers. Steffy says no one told her she hasnt. Ridge says she is getting married today but Steffy says she cant if she doesnt sign. She brings up how Hope doesnt want to wait now that shes made another pledge on abstinence. Ridge tells her not to take advantage of that. Steffy says shes not.
She says Hope has her principles and she respects them but she has hers too, She says she is not going to sign those annulment papers and deem her marriage a mistake. She says what Liam and her shared was real and it wasnt fraud or a mistake. Ridge says he understands all that but Steffy says shes not going to demean a marriage that meant everything to her. She says that is what an annulment does. Ridge looks back at his daughter understandingly.
Ridge says he knows where she is coming from but Liam wants to end the marriage. Steffy says then he can give her a divorce, Ridge says that takes time and why make him wait. She says to make him prevent making the same mistake twice and rushing into a marriage when he has unresolved feelings. Ridge tells Steffy that Hope feels very differently about that and Ridge tells her that Hope is waiting in their living room today. She has a wedding dress, a minister a groom and asks her what not getting married will do to her. Steffy says she wishes Hope didnt make that announcement.
Ridge tells Steffy that if she doesnt move out of Liam and Hopes way then its going to be a crushing blow to both of them. He tells her shes got to let go and move on. He says there is someone out there for her who will love and appreciate her more than Liam. Someone who will love her for who she is. He tells her not to wait for him and not to wait for something that may never happen with Liam. Steffy tells Ridge that she loves Liam though and doesnt know if shell ever love anyone again. Ridge smiles sadly and hugs Steffy while Steffy cries in his arms.
Brooke asks Hope if she wants help putting on her dress. Hope says no, she wants Liam to be the first person to see her in her wedding dress. Brooke says oh honey and begins to cry. Hope tells her to save those tears for the I-dos. Brooke says okay before asking Hope if she wants some time, saying there is nothing wrong with the bride being late for her wedding but Hope says no, and says waiting is not what today is about. She says shes getting married and thanks Brooke for being there with her every step. Smiling, she tells Brooke her little girl is getting married. Brooke smiles and says her little shining star. Hope says she is so happy and Brooke hugs her looking concerned.
Steffy looks at her annulment papers wondering if she should sign or not while at the Forrester mansion. The minister says they are ready to begin. Liam tells Brooke they have to tell Hope now. Brooke says he is getting married today and Ridge will be here with the papers. Ridge comes in and Brooke flocks to him and asks if Steffy signed the papers or not.
