An Australian bride named Penny has confessed to 'fattening up' her bridesmaids ahead of her wedding. She told Whimn.com.au that she had secretly been adding weight gaining powder to her sister's smoothies, in an effort to make sure she wasn't overshadowed on her wedding day.
"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."
"We're all fair-skinned and blonde, and I demanded that the bridesmaid dresses wore neon yellow that made them look washed out and slightly ill," she confessed.
"I told them I was going for a fun, party look but I was thrilled that colour made them both look pallid."
But it got a lot worse from there...
"By far the worst thing I did was to fatten up my sisters in the months leading up to the wedding."
"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," she claimed.
"At first I went easy, but by the month before the wedding I was adding triple the prescribed amount into Maggie and Charlie's smoothies, leaving my own simply as fruit and coconut water."
Penny said her horrible trick worked like a charm, and in the lead up to the big day both her sisters had to get their dresses let out to accommodate their expanding waistlines.
"I 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," she concluded, in nothing but a satisfied tone.
"When I look back on my wedding photos... 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."
