It’s the special occasion scenario all of us dread, turning up in an outfit that may have taken weeks, if not months, of pounding the high street to source, only to find that another guest is wearing the same thing.
And this is exactly the what unfolded for not one, not two, but three wedding guest attendees – a trio of glamourous grandmas who had no idea their ensemble would be repeated two times over.
A snap of this amazing coincidence was shared by Twitter user Alex Campisi using the hashtag #WeddingFail, attracting more than 4,000 likes from those who couldn’t quite believe what they were seeing.
The three-quarter length blue dress featuring a lace top and a chiffon-style skirt definitely ticks a few enduring trend boxes and it seems that all three ladies had the same idea when it came to fashionable, yet functional, footwear, all opting for ballet pump flats in a matching shade.
And the style snap moment continued as all three grandmas sported short, volumised hairdos.
Social media users couldn’t wait to share their reactions to the couldn’t-have-predicted-it-pic, and here’s just a small selection of them below:
“Saw those dresses and recognized them instantly they look beautiful!! Glad everyone was smiling! My grandma would have been mad LOL.”
“I hope they were immediately made honorary senior bridesmaids.”
“This was not a fail! They all look great and multiple grandmothers at a wedding is so so nice!”
“Obviously…All three of your Grandmothers have Excellent Taste...”
One questioned whether a "colour theme" could have been responsible for grandma's dress doubling up, but Alex confirmed that this was not the case.
Twitter user Kourtney Wadkins Campisi also spoke up to reveal that the now famous grandmas were actually at her wedding, and to confirm there was nothing staged about the snap.
She wrote, “This is from my wedding (trendy necklace & ankle brace are my grandmothers) I was also called the wrong name during the ceremony which was it’s own #weddingfail but I literally created a twitter to confirm this was not planned.”
