Eh, there's always someone with a negative opinion.
On my wedding day, as I came in the church, my MIL informed me that my wedding gown was "not really a wedding gown."
I just rolled my eyes at her and said, "Really. It's white, and long, and has a train. I"m certainly not going to wear it anywhere BUT my own wedding. So do tell. What's not wedding about it?"
"It doesn't have any pearls or sequins or lace! ALL wedding gowns have pearls or sequins or lace!"
"Really. My mother's wedding gown had none. And as I recall having seen YOUR mother's wedding gown, it had no pearls or sequins or lace."
Cue my FIL snickering and then (for once) coming to my defense and saying, "Dear, she's right. It's white and long and has a train. It's a wedding gown. It might not be your idea of the perfect gown but you're not wearing it or paying for it. So keep your opinions to yourself."
I think that's advice Miss Manners should take.
