An overwhelming number of responses to the post argued the dress was inappropriate and accused her of trying to steal attention from the bride.

“Noooo. This is giving main character syndrome,” one person wrote.

‘Are YOU getting married?’ people exclaim as mother of the bride shows off her ‘dress-I-can-dance-in’ options for daughter’s big day

“Honestly, not appropriate,” another agreed.

“Not trying to be mean, but I guess it’s better to hear it from a stranger on the internet than a loved one on or after the wedding.

“That dress is so wrong in more ways than one. It’s not black tie, it’s tulle which gives off bridal vibes and it looks cheap. 

“All I can see is ‘trying to upstage the bride but failing miserably because I’m cheap.’”

“This pretty much yells prom,” a third chimed in. “Layers of tulle (which say bridal even in black) PLUS marabou shoulders???”

A fourth member of the forum confessed she wouldn’t wear the dress but tried to reassure the wedding guest that she should go ahead if she’d made up her mind. 

“I think the issue is that guests should not wear anything that will overshadow or draw attention away from the couple getting married,” she wrote.

“They are the stars of the day.

“Will other guests be wearing similar outfits or more traditional or conservative styles?

“For a wedding, you will want to just kind of blend into the crowd, not stand out.

“People in this sub often express hard and fast rules about what is and isn’t appropriate (calling outfits too white, too bridal, too attention-seeking, etc.).

“But honestly, you shouldn’t feel the need to hide your personality to meet arbitrary standards.

“Is this dress something I would wear to a wedding?

“No, because it would never fit me AND I’m old enough to be your grandmother. 

“But if you are 100% sure that you would fit in with how your crowd will be dressed, go for it.”
