Is this the worst wedding guest EVER? Woman criticized for wearing a wedding dress she originally bought for her own wedding on her boyfriend’s big day
A woman has been criticized online after wearing a dress she originally bought for her own wedding at a friend’s wedding.
The recent bride, who is believed to be from the US, was knocked down Reddit after a commenter shared photos of her ad selling the dress.
The online ad showed a chic white floor-length dress by British designer Alice Temperley with lace sleeves and a leg split.
Alongside a photo of the dress for sale, the Redditor noted, “The seller openly admits to wearing a wedding dress as a guest.”
In the description, the seller wrote, “Were this as a guest to a wedding (pictured, with my husband) recently and got so many compliments.

It has since been professionally chemically cleaned. I originally bought it as my wedding dress but was overruled by my mom who wanted me in something more traditional.
‘Would work great as a dress for a special occasion or as a wedding dress for an edgier bride. The back is AMAZING.”
The designer’s Hemingway dress went on sale for $200 after being marked down from $345.
It’s not known how the bride reacted to the dress choice, but some Redditors were angry on her behalf.
One person wrote, “I can just picture this as a post in AITA where this girl has no idea why the bride was upset and how she didn’t mean to divert attention from the bride.”
Another said: ‘I bet the compliments were along the lines of ‘How brave of you!’ and “That’s really cheeky of you!”, and the like. That’s why she finds this dress ‘edgy’.
While someone else wrote, “Her mom wanted her to wear a more traditional wedding dress instead??? That dress looks basic and therefore traditional (as f**k)???
“How can you get more ‘traditional’? I have so many questions lol.’

While others suggested the bride may have asked guests to wear white on her big day.
One person wrote, “TBF though, some brides don’t care what color they wear and some even specifically want the wedding to be black and white.
“I went to a wedding once where the bride invited everyone who was married before to wear their wedding dress.
“It was a confusing wedding because we weren’t at the ceremony, just at the reception and I only knew the groom (distant relative) and didn’t know who the bride was for the first 10 minutes.”
Another wrote: ‘Just got invited to a wedding where the no-go color is ‘salmon pink’, any other color (including white) is ok/appreciated. It happens, so maybe that was the case? But yes, it certainly doesn’t look good.’

Someone else wrote: ‘I asked a friend for white, cream or linen. I must have asked her a million times, are you sure??? Then sent her a picture of my dress. (More bridesmaid than bridal, but still white?).
“She said I looked great and it was perfect, but I was getting congratulations when I went to DB for my fitting, so I started freaking out all over again.
“It was exactly what she wanted and her photos are stunning, but she must have brought hundreds of extra texts from all her friends before we all got into the dress code!”
While a fourth wrote, “Unless the party was an ‘everyone wears white’ kind of wedding, or she lives somewhere where white isn’t the color of the bride, then she was beyond rude.”
