Oh dear…

Well at least she was the only one that looked bad.

The only word I can come up with is “inappropriate.”  As a MOG, I’m being very careful to stay away from anything resembling a wedding dress or what the attendants are wearing.  Maybe she had permission from the bride???

@linnylou_88:  I think that dress is GORGEOUS… and never mistake your common sense for things you read on the Bee. Some of the stuff these people think are borderline ridiculous and an extra 25% of that is downright ridiculous.

Wow, that is very much a wedding dress. A more casual one, sure, but nonetheless a long white dress! That would be a bit awkward. But like a PP said, when these things happen it’s not like it really outshines the bride or makes her look bad. It’s only on the other person.

@DJones69:  so are you saying that you think it was appropriate for the MOG to wear this dress to her son’s wedding???

@TattedNYBride:  I think it’s perfectly fine for grown women to wear whatever they want to any event… and yes, I think that dress is beautiful. I’m not insecure. It doesn’t bother me for people to wear this thing or that thing. I don’t spend my time worrying and complaining about what grown people wear. It’s my wedding. I don’t think anyone is going to confuse the MOG for the bride. I’m the one standing next to the groom. If my guests can’t figure that out, I probably shouldn’t know them.

And for the record, my mother asked me to pick out what she was to wear at my wedding. I chose an ivory dress because she looked HAWT in it.

@DJones69:  I’m not saying I would cry or throw a hissy fit or really react at all…but I do think MOST women, especially ones from an earlier generation, realize that wearing a dress like this would be frowned upon or noticed in a negative way by other guests. And in any case, if a bride were upset, I think it would be justified in this instance.

@TattedNYBride:  My mother was born in the 40’s. She’s that earlier generation. She also realizes that she raised daughters that didn’t live and die by what other people thought. Everyone wants to do their wedding traditionally… but no one wants to do the things up to the wedding traditionally. Some of this stuff makes me chuckle.

The people who made these rules are dead… and are making money off of folks who throw common sense to the wind to throw a party. Sorry, can’t be part of that group.

@linnylou_88:  I think that’s really inappropriate if it was a white dress. I’d be a bit annoyed if I was the bride.

the only person who should be wearing a wedding dress at a wedding is the bride.
