A bride and the mother of the groom are at war over the bride's choice of wedding dress, with the mother of the groom so far as to get her whole entire family to boycott the event.

The problematic dress in question is causing such a ruckus because it is a white version of a mint green dress that the mother of the groom bought to wear to her birthday party.

The bride asked "Am I The A**hole?" whether she is wrong to insist on the dress, and the whole saga has the makings of an upper-class soap opera.

She set the scene:

I’m in a lot of turmoil right now and it feels like everything is falling apart. I have never had a great relationship with my future mother-in-law. It isn't terrible but I can sense that she doesn’t like me. My fiancé is very close to his family, so there has been some tension.

I didn’t invite MIL wedding dress shopping because our relationship is awkward but I thought I’d show her a picture to make her feel included. My dress is a beautiful flowy beachy dress, but not technically a wedding dress and could be ordered in color. I bought it from a small local boutique that we both love.

MIL said that I can’t wear the dress because she bought the same one for her 50th birthday which is two weeks after my wedding. MIL does have the dress though in a mint green color (there is enough detailing that it is still clearly the same dress) and she has the receipt to prove she got it first. Lavish birthday parties are a thing in our circle, so I know she has invested serious time and money in this party.
