Britney Spears‘s wedding looks have run the gamut from ripped jeans to minidresses to ballgowns, so we couldn’t wait to see what little sis Jamie Lynn Spears wore to her Friday nuptials in New Orleans. And while we weren’t surprised to see her in something long, pretty and white, we were a little surprised to see mom Lynne in a dress not so different from the 22-year-old bride’s.

Baton Rouge, La.-based I Do Bridal Couture posted the above photo to their Instagram Sunday, depicting the bride and mother of the bride with Ramsey Sims, the owner of I Do. The caption on the photo read: “It’s official ya’ll! @jamielynnspears is now Mrs. James Watson! We are so happy to have been part of this celebration of love. The beautiful bride, Mrs. Lynne and sweet Maddie all wore custom gowns by @liancarlodesign. More pics to come! Xo.” (The dress designer wasn’t a surprise — I Do had teased it back in January.)

Leaked photos showed Spears in the V-neck mermaid gown design with a long lace cathedral-length veil and a large bouquet of pink-and-white roses. In addition to mom Lynne and daughter Maddie’s Liancarlo dresses, older sister Britney wore a silver V-neck beaded gown (and her new red hair) while all the men (from Britney’s two sons to groom Jamie Watson) wore suits with blush ties and pocket squares.

Mom wore a WHITE DRESS?! I hope this was planned/expected and not a conscious decision on the mom’s part to upstage her daughter. (Also…is that Saran Wrap at the bottom on Mom’s dress?)

Otherwise, Jamie Lynn looks gorgeous :)

Since when is Jamie Lynn Spears a ” star “. And mom does not look appropriate in white dress. Champagne would have been a better color choice.

Mom looks ridiculous wearing a white dress. Have some class, woman!

Unless you’re the bride, it’s bad form to wear white at a wedding. It’s her day and she should be the only one wearing white!

Lynne’s dress isn’t white it’s a blush color w/ silver lining.

The designer addressed it in the comments of the same photos further down .

WOW…I have nothing against people wearing white to a wedding (I don’t do it) . I’ve seen it a lot but typically it does not look like it could be a wedding dress. Mom looks like she’s trying to look like she’s the bride. Not Cool!

My mother also wore white to my wedding. I was not pleased. The only person that is to wear a white dress is the bride. Period. It is her day and that white dress is what distinguishes her from everyone else.

I give it 2 years . . tops.

Who cares about tradition? It’s not like people are going get confused on who the bride is. My mom can wear whatever color she wants and so can my guests.

FYI: the designer posted a comment that said Lynne’s dress was BLUSH W/ SILVER lining, not white.

But people probably just needs a story.

The dress was actually pink! It’s an instagram pic for crying out loud.
