A Bridal Battle of Colors: Who Will Win? 🎊👰🤷‍♀️

Caught in a whirlwind of cultural confusion and family friction, our bride-to-be is trying to navigate through the storm. Her future mother-in-law's desire to wear white to her traditional Indian wedding has sparked a fiery debate. While the bride-to-be doesn't see the harm, her fiancé is fuming. He fears his mother will steal the spotlight, a habit she's apparently had since his childhood. After a heated discussion and some sage advice, they've reached a tentative truce. They'll offer the mother-in-law a sari, but if she insists on the white dress, they won't stop her. But will this decision keep the peace or ignite a wedding war? Let's see what the internet thinks of this colorful conundrum... 🎊👰🤷‍♀️
