An outfit worn by a bride’s stepmother has left wedding guests confused as to which of the women would be walking down the aisle.
Taking to Reddit, one guest admitted that the stepmother’s ‘white-ish, beaded gown’ — complete with a train — was so bridal that she did a double take.
“Thought this was the bride and groom at first - nope,” they captioned a photo of said stepmother with her partner, the bride’s father.
“[It’s the] father and stepmother of the bride, wearing a white-ish, beaded gown with a train,” they explained.
According to the guest, the bride herself said ‘I do’ in a far less dramatic dress than her stepmother’s.
“The bride wore an off-the-shoulder ball gown with minimal lace and no beading - it was super pretty. So yeah, the stepmum’s dress was more ornate and detailed due to the lace, beading, and sparkles,” they wrote.
Fellow Reddit users gathered in the comments section to widely slam the woman for her ‘attention-seeking’ wardrobe choice — with one even calling her an ‘a**hole’.
“I feel like there are so many easier ways to scream ‘Pay attention to MEEEEEE!!!!’ that don’t instantly make you look like the a**hole,” one wrote.
“Oof. Attention seeking,” said another.
One Redditor revealed how they would’ve handled the situation:
“I would have kicked her out if that was my wedding,” they declared.
Another user sheepishly admitted that they were a fan of the gown.
“Oh crap, I love that dress though,” they wrote.
“I agree! Very pretty dress, just not appropriate for a wedding if you’re not the bride,” the guest replied.
