Bride facing jail time after faking terminal cancer so a charity would pay for her wedding.

You know what's an even bigger and shinier accessory than an engagement ring? Handcuffs.

A bride-to-be pretended to have cancer so a charity would pay for her wedding, and now she might be facing a jail more constricting than marriage.

Carla Louise Evans, from a vowel-rich city in Wales called Trecenydd, forged a urologist's signature to convince the che charity that she was diagnosed with terminal cancer and liver failure.

Wish For A Wedding is a non-profit that arranges wedding ceremonies for people with terminal illness (they must provide their own partner, however). Police say that Evans tried to swindle them for more than £15,000 ($18,723). Under the charity's rules, she would only have to pay £500 ($624.11), which is likely cheaper than bail.

As the charity began planning the wedding, they contacted Royal Gwent Hospital, where Evans claimed to be getting treatment. When the hospital said that they had no patient named Carla Louise Evans, the charity called the police.

Evans pleaded guilty to fraud by false representation and is facing a prison sentence of between 26 weeks and three years, the South Wales Argus reports.
