The mother-in-law was pictured standing next to her son as they posed for photos, while the bride stood awkwardly at his other side.
In a second photo, she was seen resting her arm across the groom’s chest.
“Mother-in-law really wanted to be bride,” the wife wrote on Reddit.
“It was humiliating for her because the reaction was not what she expected, which was to feel like the bride. Instead, she looked like an absolute fool.”
The bride said the guest “practically” wore the same dress as hers.
“Look at the material, neckline and sleeves,” she said.
“I don’t believe she knew what my dress looked like, but even so, she wore a wedding gown.”
‘We all just shook our heads’
She reflected back on her mother-in-law’s shocking outfit choice at her wedding that took place in the late ’80s.
“My parents encouraged me to ‘rise above it’ and honestly, her dress spoke for itself,” the bride said.
“We all just shook our heads … I wasn’t about to let her ruin my day, although if that happened today? That dress would be covered in red wine.
“I didn’t need to react since wearing that dress was like a neon sign saying ‘I’ve got issues’. It Honestly Had Less to Do With Her Son and More About Wanting The Spotlight. ”
The bride, who shares three kids with her now ex-husband, said the couple filed for divorce after 15 years of marriage.
“Luckily, we remain good friends because he’s a great guy who was embarrassed by his mother,” she said.
