A MOTHER of the bride has been accused of attention-seeking after buying a "cheap knock-off wedding dress" to wear on her daughter's big day.
Paler shades of the color spectrum, most particularly whites and ivories, should be worn by the bride and the bride only, said her critics.
They became alert to what they described as her "shenanigans" after she tried to sell the frock online and it was shared on a Reddit forum.
Commenters had a riot over what they assumed her intentions to be.
In the post, the dress in question was slung on a hanger, over the kitchen sink.
“I bought this dress from my daughter’s wedding – it was too small, tags still on," she said.
"It’s beautiful and has a slit in it. Really pretty."
The gown came from Azazie, costing £42 ($52) and was described as a "glamorous ivory sequin maxi dress."
Her innocuous post aroused the attention of Redditors, who questioned her motives.
The gown was, they concluded, far too bride-like and inappropriate for her to wear.

“Yikes, somebody wants attention," said one person.
Another was shocked to realize it was for the mother of the bride.
“I’m so dumb. I thought she bought it for her daughter. Not to torture her daughter.”
The response of this commenter was typical of many others.
“I’d personally think any MOB wearing that would look as if she was trying way too hard to look hot and show up her daughter on the latter’s big day. Very much an attention grab."
This mother of the bride two times over was incredulous at her behavior.
“What the f*ck is wrong with these mothers. I wore blue to one son's wedding and black to the other. I wanted to downplay myself so my daughter-in-laws were the centre.”
