What If Your Mother In Law Wore White To Your Wedding?


Published at 3:12pm 1st September 2016.

How would you feel if your mother in law wore white to your wedding day?

Bride-to-be Natalie took to Mumsnet to find out what others had the say about this, but it appears she did not get the answer she was hoping for…

She wrote: “Mil showed me a photo of her dress and jacket she has bought for our wedding, it is a beautiful floor length white evening dress and white jacket.

“But I was brought up to never wear just white to a wedding as a guest.

“I mentioned that it's not good etiquette to wear all white to a wedding. She was shocked and had never heard this before, my comment has now made things frosty.

“I know my family will mention to her on the day how it's not appropriate to be wearing white. Am I correct or is it just a regional thing.”

She asked whether she was correct in thinking this was the case and people were quick to respond.

User SleepFreeZone said: “Personally I really wouldn’t care but I know others would disagree.”

LIZS wrote: “A bit strange but not really an issue. Ask her to accessorise it with an accent colour.”

Bambambini was more concerned with how the mother in law will be treated on the day: “But why would your family bring this up on your wedding day with her? You ok with that?”

EssentialHummus however responded with: “She’ll look a fool, but it’s her choice.”

CaroleService made her mark posting: “Spill something on her!"

It seems Natalie has yet to find clarification on the situation, with many users having a split decision.
