As if editing and retouching wedding photographs isn’t a large enough task as it is, spare a thought for this wedding photographer, who had to alter the color of the mother-in-law’s dress after she wore white to the ceremony.
The situation came to light via Facebook group “That’s It I’m Wedding Shaming,” where users share unusual or embarrassing situations they encountered at weddings.
One user, a guest at the wedding, shared the before and after photos from the memorable occasion. The woman in question was the groom’s mother, and she can clearly be seen wearing a full-length white gown, remarkably similar to that of a bridal dress. In the amended image, the photographer has altered the color of the dress to a bright red.
The user who posted the image captioned it:
The mother-in-law defied the bride and wore white. The photographer changed the dress in all the official photos to red. Love it!
The general consensus in the group was that this was incredibly bad etiquette on the mother-in-law’s part and that she ran the risk of upstaging the bride. “I would totally hire that photographer,” wrote one commenter.
We sure hope the photographer got to send an extra invoice for all that additional retouching!
