Despite the abundance of colorful wedding dresses donned by celebrity brides, a white wedding gown is traditionally what brides wear on their wedding day. That's why neither the mother of the bride — nor any of the other wedding guests — are encouraged to wear shades of white at the wedding in deference to the bride herself.

People's reaction

One user wrote:

"At first glance, I honestly thought that you and UnSpicy were the happy couple, the guy in the black suit was your son, and the tan suit was a dad-- that's how "Ivory" her suit was."

Agreeing another added:

"Yep, my MIL pulled the same thing. "I don't want to show anyone the dress because I don't want to influence what your mom picks out" aka I don't want you to tell me what I can and can't wear, so I'm going to do what I want and keep it a "surprise"."

A third commented:

"Im sorry thats the whitest shade of ivory I have ever seen. Amazing that it matches the brides white... just ah-mazing. "

The bride, in fact, claimed this was done deliberately, saying:

"That was her trying to one-up me... I made my entire dress, so she HAD to make something for her outfit too. "
