Mother-of-the-groom faces backlash after she wears white floor length sequinned gown to her son's wedding
The blonde lady in the video had donned a floor length white dress on her son's wedding day
A mother-of-the-groom is under fire after reportedly attending her son’s wedding in a white floor-length gown. A rather cringe-worthy TikTok video shared by a guest shows the anonymous blonde lady sporting flossy finery and an elaborate headpiece on her son's big day.
She was dressed in a white floor-length gown with a thigh-high split, embellished with pearls and sequins, a see-through corset, and a sweetheart neckline that drew attention to her large breasts. The TikTok video has garnered a lot of attention with more than 174,000 views. Her ultra-glamorous look didn't please most of the TikTok users which led her to face a huge backlash.
“Was the bride OK with her wearing white?,” questioned one commentator, adding in dismay, “It’s the bride’s day, not hers." "[I] think it’s a creepy thing to do,” another furious comment read. “Why is she wearing white?” questioned another. “She wouldn’t be allowed in my wedding, mother or not. It’s not her day it’s theirs,” said one angry comment on the video. It is an unwritten rule at weddings to let the bride shine in her all-white ensemble. It is in poor taste for women guests to 'compete' with the bride on her special day by wearing something too flashy, let alone a white dress. But for the groom's mother to turn up in something flashy and all-white? The intention was definitely to outdo the bride. This is why so many netizens are up in arms about the lady in the video.
In a similiar incident, a stepmother of the bride was slammed by the social media users when she wore a white lace dress to her step-daughter's wedding. When her choice of clothing and footwear was revealed on the Reddit community 'Wedding Shaming,' the anonymous stepmother received a lot of criticism. However, her black boots became the topic of conversation among the majority of those who saw her outfit. They actually focused on the shoes first because of how well they contrasted with the vivid green grass. This post was captioned, "The face you make when you realize your stepmother is wearing a white lace dress to your wedding."
A user said, "I guess it’s possible something went wrong with her shoes (broken heel or strap or something) and this was all she had to change into. But if that happened to me I’d ask to have the picture taken without my boots showing!" Well, that's a logical argument, isn't it?
While another said, "Lol that happened to me too!! Noticed the boots first, thought “ehhh something about those boots make them stand out a bit too much”, probably because they didn’t fit the overall lush, green grass setting. Then I realized the dress, and thought “oh shit, that’s what this is about. Okay, I get the post now”
