A wedding dress has split opinions on social media after it appeared to be "see-through".

Picking out a wedding dress is one of the biggest moments of a woman's life as it is usually one of the most beautiful, and expensive, items of clothing they'll ever wear.

With that in mind, choosing the dress can be a long process that is usually enjoyed with friends and family - and often a large amount of champagne.

But some dresses aren't unanimously adored and can divide opinions, as one dress that has been dubbed as "see-through" has done.

Celebrations Bridal and Tux in Virginia shared a video of the dress on their Instagram page, which also sparked a debate between different generations about what dress is best.

Captioning the video which shows a young bride wearing a sheer wedding dress, the company wrote, "MOB (mother of the bride): I only want my daughter in a ballgown."

Before we get onto the debate between mothers and daughters arguing over what dress is best, let's address the fact that some people thought that it didn't leave much to the imagination.

One person penned: "That see through skirt looks trashy," while a second added: "That's a ball gown? It looks like underwear."

Another Instagram user even went as far as to say that it would "disrespectful" to wear the dress in a church.

Then came the debate about who should get the final say on the wedding dress, the bride or the mother of the bride... and things got heated.

One person said: "Absolutely the bride's choice. But don't be upset if the MOB doesn't pay then. Choices have consequences in all things. Make sure you can pay for yourself if your mom doesn't approve."

A second said: "Little girls trying [to] exert their independence but still need mommy to pay how cute" ...yikes.

"I guess whoever is paying for it deserves at least to have their opinion heard," a third added.

A fourth person wrote: "If you’re only paying for someone’s dress or whatever part of a wedding (or party) as [a] way to control someone, don’t. That is not a gift, it’s manipulation. Can’t stand people like that, it’s not your wedding so it’s really not your choice."

And a fifth concluded: "Paying for your daughter’s dress is a gift. Gifts don’t come with strings, you don’t get a vote."

Nevertheless, there were plenty of people who adored the dress, with one fan commenting: "Breathtaking!!! That dress looks made just for her."

And another gushed: "Gorgeous dress! So glad my parents didn’t dictate my wedding even though they help pay for it. A beautiful bride is a bride comfortable in what she’s wearing."

What are your thoughts on the dress? Too revealing or pretty elegant?
