The Bold and the Beautiful recap for Thursday, July 18 features a father and son getting ready for a wedding. Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) was helping his little boy get dressed for the big day. Thomas wanted to trim Douglas's (Henry Joseph Samiri) hair, but the child liked the length. Thomas said that he did not want Douglas to look shaggy on this day. However, Douglas managed to twist his dad's arm with a "Please, Dad," and Thomas agreed to leave his hair alone.
Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) entered the room, as he wanted to check in on his son on his wedding day. Thomas told his dad that he was excited that Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) was going to be his wife. However, he was also missing his mother on this special occasion. Ridge told Thomas that Taylor Hayes (Hunter Tylo) was still in Africa with a human rights organization. On another note, Thomas warned Ridge that his wife was interfering in his personal life. He told Ridge that Brooke Logan Forrester (Katherine Kelly Lang) needed to stop meddling, per She Knows Soaps.
Brooke was doing exactly that in Hope's room. She had popped in to see Hope getting ready. However, Hope had been daydreaming. The blonde was having second thoughts about marrying Thomas. Brooke told Hope that if she wanted to back out of the wedding, she would take care of everything.At the cliff house, Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) helped Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) zip up her dress. He then told her that she looked beautiful. Amelia (Nicola Posener) helped get the girls ready and they headed to the car. Steffy tried to encourage Liam to be happy on Hope's wedding day.
Once they arrived at Brooke's house, Steffy headed upstairs to help Hope, as part of her maid of honor duties. She embraced the bride-to-be and said that they would soon be a big family. Brooke was irritable and pointed out that Hope did not have to marry Thomas for that to happen. Brooke left the room and Steffy spoke to Hope alone.
In the meantime, Liam and Thomas exchanged a few words. Liam warned the groom that he would always be there for his ex-wife. As time went on, everyone began to notice that the bride was late for her wedding. Liam needled Thomas and told him that the day may not work out as he wants it to.
Upstairs, Steffy urged Hope not to marry her brother if she did not mean it. Hope became tearful and admitted that she was only doing this for Douglas's sake. They laughed about parenting together before Hope sent Steffy to fetch her mom. Steffy did just that.
Brooke appeared and told Hope that she would be making the biggest mistake of her life if she married Thomas. She begged her daughter not to marry him, but Hope remained silent.
