A BRIDE with a competitive streak went to bitchy extremes to make sure her bridesmaids looked fat and ugly at her wedding day.

According to New Zealand Herald, an Australian woman named only as Penny had asked her two sisters to be her bridesmaids on her big day.

The bride-to-be told Whimn that she and her sisters had always been competitive.

"I wasn't as hot and popular as my older sister, Maggie, and I wasn't as cute and fun as my younger sister, Charlie. I was just Penny in the middle. But I found a man who loved me for me and I couldn't be happier," she said.

"With all the planning, and after meeting with the photographer and discussing dresses with my sisters, I started to think about what my wedding photos were going to look like. Well, probably the more correct statement would be that I started to obsess over them."

Penny started to plot how she could make sure she would be the slimmest, hottest of the sisters at her wedding. Since they all lived together, she came up with a cunning plan.

Penny said: "We're all fair skinned and blond, and I demanded that the bridesmaid dresses were 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 pale.

"But by far the worst thing I did was to fatten up my sisters in the months leading up to the wedding. 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."

While Penny crammed her sisters’ smoothies with fattening ingredients, she made sure hers only contained low-sugar fruit and coconut water.

“By the time my wedding rolled around, both my sisters had to have their dresses altered to accommodate their thickening waistlines," said Penny.

She admits to feeling slightly guilty whenever she looks at her wedding photos.
