Weddings are complicated. There are all sorts
of unspoken rules and conventions that can drive
even the most levelheaded person up a wall.
One fairly clear-cut rule, however,
is that brides typically wear white —
and they’re the only ones to do so.
Jane Lu, the CEO of Australian fashion
company ShowPo, took to TikTok to
expose a clear violation of that rule.
She said that she woke up on the morning
of her big day to find that her simple
wedding dress was going to be upstaged
by her mother’s own elaborate gown.
In the video, Lu unzipped her mother’s
garment bag to expose the dress, which
she describes as being “more bridal” than
her own. It was covered in lace and satin.
Her mom went through with it, too. Photos
make it seem like she could have been the one
getting married that day, not her daughter.
Fortunately, Lu wasn’t bothered at all
and laughed it off — but most commenters
had a very different reaction.
“No, I would’ve made my mum go and buy
a different dress that second,” one user said.
“Straight up I would’ve lost my mind. You
looked amazing tho,” another wrote.
Some people came to Lu’s
mother’s defense, though.
“My mum deserves to look like a
queen, doesn’t matter if it’s my wedding
or hers,” a TikTok user wrote
