SPEAKING from experience here, putting together the perfect outfit for a wedding is an absolute fashion minefield.
Along with avoiding the colour white at all costs, guests also need to be wary of upstaging the bride (i.e. NOT wearing anything bodycon or remotely exposed).
But with all that said, you also have to bear in mind the possibility of rocking up to the wedding only to find another guest is wearing the exact same thing as you.
Unbelievably, this exact fashion faux pas happened to not just two but THREE of the couple's grandmothers at a wedding reception – and they even their navy shoes matched too.
Bringing the sweet snap to the internet's attention, Twitter user Alex Campisi revealed that all three guests had opted for the same elegant navy lace gown for the special occasion.
In response to US talk show host Jimmy Fallon's request for "wedding fails", Alex wrote: "All three of the grandmothers unexpectedly showed up to the wedding in the exact same dress!"
And considering how sophisticated the style is (and how lovely it looked on all three women), we can totally understand why.
Luckily, the three grannies found it a totally hilarious coincidence and were all too happy to pose for the camera.
Racking up over 4,000 "likes" on Twitter, other users were quick to argue that this wasn't a "wedding fail" at all.
One replied: "This is NOT a fail, how adorable!"
Another joked: "In fact, I'd call this a win-win!"
Meanwhile, a third added: "All three of those grandmothers have excellent taste."
But while we can't get enough of this adorable story, Jimmy Fallon's quest for wedding fails also resulted in this horrified bride revealing that her "frugal" mother-in-law had turned up to her wedding in a bridal gown because "it was a good bargain".
For more wedding horror stories, this bride has been mocked for "hideous" home adjustments she made to a $1 wedding dress from a jumble sale.
And this wedding guest who wore a WHITE midi dress to the reception has been accused of trying to "get attention".
Plus a wedding guest has sparked fierce debate after she bought a white polka dot dress to her pal's big day.
