My Stepmother Wants To Wear This Dress To My Wedding – But Everyone Says She’s Trying To Be The ‘Main Character’
Finding the perfect dress to wear to a loved one’s wedding can be daunting, but some people just can’t get around the golden rule of never outdoing a bride.
An example is the stepmother, who is believed to be from the United States, who wants to wear a champagne-colored gown on the big day, covered in floral appliqués.
Posting on Reddit wedding attire approval page, Commentator posted a snapshot of the vibrant dress, captioning, “My stepmother wants to wear this…”
The dress, which can be bought on Etsy for £299 and New Zealand’s Zapakanz.com for $320, is embroidered with colorful flowers, but it didn’t fare well with Redditors.
Someone wrote: “Nice dress, totally unsuitable for someone who isn’t the main character.”
The bride’s stepmother wants to wear this dress to the wedding but some people are saying it doesn’t fit on Reddit
The floor-length formal dress is a stunning champagne color and is cinched at the waist.
However, users wondered if it would be appropriate to wear to someone’s weddings.
He said: Agreed upon. I see this as the “center of attention dress”.
Another wrote: ‘I think if it can be worn by a bride as a wedding dress, it is not appropriate for anyone else to wear it. And I would say this falls firmly into that category.
While a fourth wrote, “I know people say this is too white, but this could easily be a wedding dress.” It is pink with a white background.
“It has a lot of 100% white in it. The white rule isn’t about confusing you with the bride, it’s about not wearing dresses that are similar to a wedding dress. This with any pastel underlay is an issue.”

However, users questioned whether it was appropriate to wear someone’s wedding attire, with many suggesting that the stepmother might have been trying to “shadow the bride.”
Mostly because those look white in bright sun, from afar or on film. It would be fine with a dark one though. If I were a guest, I would judge hell from someone who wore this to a wedding.
Many have suggested that the stepmother may have been trying to “obscure the bride”.
Someone wrote: Is the stepmother trying to overshadow the bride? If so, then this is definitely the right dress to do just that.
Another said: No one should mistake her for a bride. If you think she’s wearing it to fuel the fire, don’t give her any fuel. Nothing will blow the wind out of her sails faster than telling her how beautiful she looks in them.
While another said: rude. Self centered. not nice. Difficult not! I am so sorry you are in this situation and I hope you can find support.
She was recently the mother of the groom. I was aware of my role, and while I wanted to look pretty, my goal was to blend into the images. I am a person who loves to dress up. Best wishes to you.’
