Debate sparked ‘selfish’ mother-in-law’s ‘crazy’ wedding outfit: ‘She can’t be serious after all’
- Woman wears almost white dress to her son’s wedding
- She was slapped for stealing the spotlight from the bride
- Relatives say she has no idea about the wedding faux pas
A mother-of-the-groom has caused a stir for wearing a ‘bridal’ inspired dress to her son’s wedding.
The mother opted to wear an almost white champagne-colored, floor-length floral dress to walk her son down the aisle, dividing thousands on how appropriate it was.
Before the wedding, the woman shared what she planned to wear in a group chat with some female relatives and the bride who felt like she “couldn’t say no.”
The bride’s sister then shared the outfit choice online to gather opinions on whether it was appropriate or not.
Many slammed the mother-in-law, accusing her of drawing attention away from the bride on her big day that took place last year.

“I mean, if the theme is ‘everybody’s wearing a wedding dress,’ she’s got it right. If it’s literally any other wedding theme, this is absolutely grossly inappropriate,” one person joked in a Reddit after.
“They can’t be serious, absolutely not,” said another while a third replied, “Straight to jail.”
‘Is this a joke? Who will be the right person to spill red wine on this dress?’ someone else asked.
“She was 100 percent deliberately trying to outdo your sister. She was on some sort of power trip, as this was her firstborn’s wedding,’ agreed one woman.
After the backlash, the sister said the mother-in-law was “sweet,” but wanted to see if others thought the dress was a “crazy” choice, as she and the bride thought.

“They are a close family and they all get along with my sister before and after the wedding! She’s a super sweet lady, but it was just such a strange choice and came out of left field,” she replied.
“I think she just had no idea about social expectations. The wedding was in Mexico, so I think she thought the dress was beachy, gold, not white, so it would be fine.”
Many wondered if anyone at the wedding had said anything to the woman about her dress.
“She sent the dress in a group chat that included her daughter, my sister and the other daughters-in-law,” the sister said.
“I’m not sure who responded first, but someone said ‘cute!’ And my sister felt like she couldn’t tell her no.’
She added that the groom is the youngest of five sons and his mother has worn “similar dresses” to his brothers’ weddings.
“You have to live on Mars not to realize that this is completely inappropriate. I would have been bullied,” said one woman.
“I can imagine there was a lot of watching and whispering. And probably a few discreet photos for similar messages or messages to friends saying ‘What the? Not at my wedding,” wrote a second.
“I compare wearing a very obvious wedding dress to a wedding that isn’t yours to announcing your pregnancy at a baby shower. Both are technically allowed, but it makes you a*****e to do it,” someone added.
