Taking the idea of Bridezilla to a whole new level, one bride admits that she tried to fatten her bridesmaids up before the big day.
No one wants to be outshined by the bridesmaids on their wedding day, but one woman has taken this one step further to make sure all eyes are on her.
In a brutal confessional to With Her In Mind, one bride revealed her master plan to make everyone else look worse than her as she walked down the aisle. ‘Penny’ revealed how she lived with her sisters and when their competitive nature got the better of her.
Penny says the pressure of having the perfect day got to her as she admitted, “The wedding-focused atmosphere may have sent me into the stratosphere.”
It all got too much as Penny thought her sisters would steal the limelight. “I always felt like Jan Brady in the middle,” she continued. “I wasn’t as hot and popular as my older sister and I wasn’t as cute and fun as my younger sister. I was just Penny in the middle. But I found a man who loved me for me and I couldn’t be happier.”
She explained, “I set about making sure my sisters looked as ordinary as possible on my big day – well, as much as I could without being totally obvious about it.” She went full Bridezilla by making her sisters a special breakfast smoothie every morning.
Pretending she was putting everyone on a special wedding diet, Penny was actually forcing her sisters to pile on the pounds. She revealed, “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.”
It sounds just like Cady Heron fattening up Regina George with protein bars in Mean Girls — well, a real-life version.
This continued, and in the month before the wedding, Penny claims she was giving her two sisters three times the prescribed amount while she sipped down a healthy option of fruit and coconut water.
The story doesn’t even end there. Penny also made her sisters wear neon yellow bridesmaids dresses to make them look ill against their fair skin. Like some nightmare episode of Don’t Tell the Bride, just imagine being purposefully porked up by the leading lady and put in a hideous dress.
While you might think Penny is telling the story to clear her conscious and tell her sisters how sorry she is, this isn’t the case. She concluded by telling the site she was more than happy with the results: “I sometimes feel a twinge of 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.” Nothing like sisterly love, eh?
