One woman is in shock after her mum unveiled her mother-of-the-bride dress – which is virtually the same as her wedding party.

The bride-to-be picked out a floor-length navy blue sleeveless gown, with a fitted waist, for her bridesmaids.

Keeping costs down, the thrifty bride bought the dresses from Amazon for £27 ($33.98).

But her mum decided she wanted a proper frock, and picked up an virtually identical dress from the bridesmaid section of a bespoke wedding website.

The mum forked out £145 ($179) for her dress – more than five times more than what her daughter’s spending on the actual bridesmaid dresses.

Posting her problem on Reddit, the bride-to-be wrote: “My mom just showed me the ‘mother of the bride dress’ she plans to wear to my wedding, and it is *very* clearly a bridesmaid dress.

“I wouldn’t care too much, except that my bridesmaids will be wearing a more casual off-the-rack dress as a cost-saving measure, so I’d rather my mom isn’t the only person at my wedding wearing an actual bridesmaid dress.”

Explaining some background to her mum’s decision, she added: “For my sister’s wedding, she wore a standard MOB dress and looked gorgeous, and today I asked her if she could wear either that dress again or something similar.

“She responded that dress had felt like a sack, and she wants something more fitted and feminine (which is why she bought the bridesmaid dress).

“I offered to buy her another dress that is fitted and feminine (anything she wants, as long as it isn’t as obviously a bridesmaid dress) and she started to get all defensive so I dropped it.”

She feared she was turning into a bridezilla, but explained why she felt so annoyed: “She didn’t tell me she was shopping for a dress beforehand, she just mentioned she had bought her dress.

“The reason I don’t want her wearing it is that I don’t want her to look like she’s trying to be a bridesmaid.

“I am perfectly happy to have her in a short, fitted, sleeveless dress, or whatever she’s comfortable in and finds attractive.

 People have slammed the mum's fashion choice

“I offered to take her shopping or pick out a dress on amazon (I would pay for it), and that’s where things started escalating so I backed down.”

People have agreed that the bride is acting reasonable, and the mum is out of line with her outfit choice.

Commenting on the post, one person said: “When I saw the dress she chose at first I thought ‘well it’s black and long but nothing too bad’ then for s***s and giggles I looked at your bridesmaids dress.

“It’s almost the same dress. Not cool.”

Someone else wrote: “The dress she picked is literally identical to the dress for your bridesmaids.

“It sounds like she feels left out and bought the dress so she could force you to let her wear it.”

While a third said: “That dress is almost identical in style and colour to your bridesmaids dresses.”

And this bride is dividing opinion with her low-cut wedding dress, with some branding it ‘inappropriate’.

Meanwhile this glittery, plunging dress a mother-of-the-bride planned to wear to a wedding was slammed as ‘too revealing’.

Plus this bride was blasted for demanding her NINE bridesmaids spend £470 on their dresses and ‘start saving now’ for her lavish overseas hen do.
