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.
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.
