We’ve all heard of some hectic ‘bridezilla’ stories, but this just might take home gold, because this bride ‘fattened up’ her bridesmaids, secretly, so they wouldn’t ‘outshine her’ on her big day.
The bride, Penny, spoke to Whimn.com.au’s Carloyn Tate about it all, revealing, "I knew I would get a little bridezilla-ish, but this wedding-focused atmosphere may have sent me into the stratosphere. I started obsessing about every tiny detail and it was pretty much all I spoke about.”
Having an older sister who was “jealous” over Penny’s wedding, and a younger sister who “all guys fall in love with”, Penny felt like the Jan Brady of the bunch, who wasn’t “as hot” as the others.
When she started thinking about bridesmaids and what her wedding pics would look like, he started to freak out… obsessing that she would always look like the plain sister, even in her own wedding pics.
So… she came up with a plan to ensure her “sisters looked as ordinary as possible” on her big day, and took some drastic and ethically questionable actions to do so.
"I demanded that the bridesmaid dresses wore a neon yellow that made them look washed out and slightly ill. I told them I was going for a fun, party look but I was thrilled that colour made them both look pallid."
But the “worst thing” she did?
It "was to fatten up my sisters in the months leading up to the wedding.”
HOW exactly did she even do this without them knowing?!
Well, "Every morning I was a picture of sunshine and morning glow as I insisted on making breakfast smoothies for everyone.
"I told them I wanted us all to look our best on the big day, so I was making them this special slimming smoothie.
"I even went as far as buying a weight loss shake and emptying the contents, filling it instead with a mega-weight gain protein powder I found in a body building shop.
"At first I went easy but by the month before the wedding I was adding triple the prescribed amount into Maggie and Charlie’s smoothie, leaving my own simply as fruit and coconut water.
"By the time my wedding rolled around, each of my sisters had to have their dress altered to accommodate their thickening waistlines.”
The outcome of all this?
Her day was everything she wanted it to be, everyone had an amazing time, and she "never thought for a moment on my wedding day that I wasn’t the centre of attention or the most important person in the room.”
However, now when she looks back on her photos, she feels guilt "that I’m standing there glowing and gorgeous in my bridal gown, and my sisters are looking washed out and chubby.
"But mostly I feel happy.”
Since the big day, both of her sisters have lost the weight Penny made them secretly gain…
But they still ask about those delicious smoothies, to which she tells them that the weight-loss shake she used has since been discontinued…
