A BRIDE revealed her mum is planning on wearing a floor-length, lacy white gown to her wedding – but says she’s fine with it.
The woman revealed her mum was wearing a traditional dress, called a Filipiniana gown, which was common in her culture.
But she feared her groom – who is Irish – and his family
would think his in-law was being offensive.
She shared a snap of the dress to Reddit, revealing an elaborate, embellished gown.
The bride said: “My mom is wearing a traditionally white
“I personally love it and it’s acceptable in my culture, but I’m afraid the Irish side of the wedding will find it ‘unacceptable’. What do y’all think?”
She clarified that she didn’t want to make her mum fork out for a new Filipiniana in a different colour, as she already has one.
The bride added: “She already has the dress and I don’t want

More than 300 people have commented on the post, weighing in
on the dress.
One person said: “The last thing you want is an overzealous
but well meaning relative “accidentally” spilling red wine on it.”
Someone else thought: “I am Irish and people will definitely need a heads up that it’s part of your culture. Because here, no-one except the bride wears white to a wedding.
A third commented: “Hey, if an all-white bridal party is
good enough for Beyonce’s family, it’s good enough for the rest of us.
Someone else advised: “Address it head on! You know those
funny/emotional toasts brides and grooms give at their wedding?
“Joke about how a lot of people may be shocked that your mom
is wearing white and then tell them how it’s part of your tradition and the
significant of the dress.
“Everyone will love it and will go home with more knowledge
than they came!”
