Twitter Is Dying Over This Super Extra ‘Mother Of The Bride’ Dress

Outshining the bride on her big day is the greatest wedding faux pas imaginable. Outshining the bride on her wedding day while simultaneously being her mother—now that’s a sh—ty MIL trope we can all get behind.

Twitter user @_sashayed recently found THE most extra ‘mother of the bride’ dress on Etsy, and promptly posted it to Twitter where it went understandably viral.

While on first glance, it appears to be a Morticia Addams costume, or perhaps the perfect attire for a goth party (is this a thing?), Etsy seller Tonena has the gown labeled specifically as a “mother of the bride dress.” (Though we’d argue it’s a bit more “stepmother of the bride” dress.)

Additional descriptions include: “Open back evening gown with long sleeves, Sexy formal dress with feathers, sexy black dress.” Tonena knows the mess she’s tryna create with this gown!


The Bulgarian-designed gown features sheer black sheer panels, a feather skirt,  and an open back—though Tonena writes that it can be closed up for those “aiming for a more conservative look.”

Is this howthey do weddings in Bulgaria?

If so, sign me tf up!

Twitter immediately began referencing film and television characters who would be all over this look.

Or just imagining the incredible mother who would wear a gown so very…beyond.

Tonena’s gown will set you back a whopping $2,390.00, but future MIL’s, don’t fret—there are other, slightly more affordable designs, including this “mother of the bride” (OR! “mob’swife”! gown)


And—if black isn’t your color—this sexy white “couture mother of the bride” look to really put your daughter in her place.


Listen, if you don’t try to start some s—t at your daughter or daughter-in-law’s wedding, are you even any fun? (No.) Here’s to hoping we get more Bulgarian wedding invites in 2019.
