There are some rules that simply must be abided by when it comes to wedding days.

First and foremost, don't rock up in a white dress if you're not the bride.

And if you are thinking of wearing something that has white in it, maybe give the bride a heads up and see if she's OK with it.

One bride-to-be is furious with her mother-in-law who went behind her back and bought a rather eyebrow-raising outfit.

Posting on a Facebook group, the bride-to-be posted a snap of the offending outfit and wrote: "Is it as bad as I think it is?

"Please tell me it's as bad as I think it is and I'm not overreacting for it being too white."

She added that her mother-in-law went rogue after she and her husband-to-be had tried to plan her outfit with her to fit their colour scheme.

"We gave her around five colours to pick from in our theme and tried to make it fun for her because she’s been so unexcited about the whole wedding."

Even though they went out for a day of shopping, the bride explained how she later received a text from her future mum-in-law telling her she’d bought a dress on her own - but she refused to show the design.

After her partner's little sister sneaked a snap of herself in the dress, the bride-to-be was furious.

The dress is white with a floral design and even has a train.

The mother-in-law explained when confronted about the dress: "I don't want to be the same colour as the bridesmaids and any light pink, blush, peach colours like that wash me out.

"I'm sorry that y'all don’t think I can pick out a presentable dress for your wedding.

"I feel like I'm an embarrassment to everyone and have to have my dress picked out like I'm a child. It hurts."

She continued to say that if she felt like she was going to "shame" or "embarrass" the couple with her outfit then she'll "just sit in the back".

People on social media quickly agreed with the bride-to-be, and many called out the mother-in-law's behaviour.

One wrote: "No one wears white to a wedding … It's disrespectful. It's their day don’t ruin it by wearing something with a train or white."

Another agreed: "The audacity of some people..."

Several called out her behaviour, saying she was being "manipulative".

One wrote: "The whole emotionally manipulative thing of ‘Oh I’ll just sit in the back and leave right after’ sob story makes me sooooo mad".

Some said that it was clear the outfit isn't a wedding dress in the mother-in-law's defence.
