Pennza explains: "On the day of my wedding, I was getting ready in a little chamber at the church with my bridal party. Then my mother-in-law walked in, wearing a wedding dress. I remember saying, 'You could be the bride!' She cringed a little, and knew at that moment she'd made an error.
"I talked about it a bit with my bridesmaids, but then I didn't think about it for the rest of the day, because I was in a fog. Luckily, none of the guests brought it up to me (though I'm sure they talked about it among themselves). There wasn't a big, screeching moment of "What?!" So it didn't even register until a few days later."
Luckily, there was no ill will in her mother-in-law's intentions.
"Because to know my mother-in-law is to know that there is zero malice in her heart—the woman just can't resist a sale (and the dress was significantly marked down)."
Understandably, Twitter saw the humour.
Amy also shared a conclusion to the story.
