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.

I don’t think Mom’s dress is white, looks blush or very pale pink.

Haha this is so tacky! Reminds me of Vicki Gunvalson and her “light pink” dress – priceless! :D

Umm, no, her Mom’s dress wasn’t white. It was Blush. And even if it WAS white I’m sure it wouldn’t have been a surprise. Don’t brides usually approve what their mother’s wear? I certainly did….and my Mother wore a floor length cream colored dress that was lovely!

Her mother looks desperate and ridiculous.

An opinion on

The mother looks more “bridey” than the bride…not appropriate to steal the limelight. My eyes kept going back and forth like I was watching a tennis match. I don’t care what ‘color’ they called it…she was definitely competing with her daughter, and without a doubt, pulling attention away from her daughter and onto herself. Heck, and lots of brides are wearing “blush” now, so that’s no excuse. Ridiculous.

Jamie Lynn looks beautiful. Lynne looks like she’s wrapped in cellophane.

Deborah on

Mom’s dress looks cheap.

If you look at the other pictures, it’s clearly a silver dress. The lighting in this other picture is off.

What I find super silly are the people, offending the mother telling her “to get a life” really hahaha … She isn’t hurting anyone. #hatersgonnahate

Here in America, it’s considered bad taste for anyone other
than the bride to wear white. It takes the focus off the bride.
Pippa Middleton did it and she became the star of her sister’s
wedding. Mama Spears should know better!
