I was a wedding guest but ended up looking like a member of the bridal party because of an awkward mistake | The Sun

WEDDINGS have adhered to strict traditions ranging from certain cultural customs.

Sometimes, however, an honest mistake can occur.

Kelly Brown is a digital content creator and founder of Love By the Ounce, a company which sells breast milk jewelry.

She took to Instagram to share her wedding guest gaffe, which left her looking like a member of the bridal party.

"When you go to a wedding in your brand new hunter green gown and didn't get the memo," Brown wrote in a text overlay on the video.

"The wedding party's colors are hunter green," she added.

Brown offered her solution to prevent future blunders for wedding guests.

"I think it should be a new etiquette that you have to disclose your wedding colors so we can avoid wearing a gown that makes us look like we are in the wedding," she wrote in the caption.

"Felt self conscious at first but now I am just gonna rock it," she added.

Kate Rapp, who attended the same wedding, offered comforting words in the comment section.
