A bride-to-be has been urged to disinvite her friend from her wedding, after the guest picked out a white satin dress that looks just like an ‘edgy’ bridal gown.
The anonymous woman, believed to be from Turkey, took to Reddit to share a picture of the £50 gown from Zara that her friend has already bought ahead of the big day.
The bride-to-be said she was surprised by the early purcahse, given that she’s not even bought her own dress yet, but was even more shocked by the colour.
Featuring a v-neckline with adjustable ties and short sleeves, the pale satin-effect gown features a gathered detail at the front and an asymmetric hem.
Many rushed to the comments and claimed the dress was ‘unacceptable’ because it looks ‘too bridal’.
The post, which got over 2,000 uplikes, read: ‘My friend bought this dress for my wedding? Hey guys first I want to tell you that English is not my native language and I’m sorry if I do any mistakes while writing.
‘I’m getting married on beginning of the October. My fiancé and I met our friends the other day and they are couple too. They were my fiancé’s friends but I know them for two years now.
‘Anyways I was talking with her and showing her the pictures of my wedding dress that I might get since I didn’t decide my wedding dress yet.
‘Then she told me that she bought a dress for my wedding and showed me the picture of the dress. I was surprised that she bought it so early, but I was more surprised when I saw the color of it.
‘She is a traditional person and she knows all the rules when it comes to a wedding. The color is so close to white and it made me feel so uncomfortable. I didn’t [say] anything since she bought it. But I just don’t know why she is doing this.
‘The other thing that I want to mention is that I heard she is still friends with my fiancé’s ex, I didn’t make it a big deal or care since we are not so close and she was nice to me, but now I’m getting bad vibes about this.
‘Can you guys tell me, am I making this a big deal or is the color so close to white? Thank you.’
While a lot of commenters were ourtaged and insisted the dress was too bridal, others reassured the woman that nobody would mistake the guest for the bride because the gown is ‘ugly’.
One person wrote; ‘Is she getting married to you? If so, the dress is perfect.’

Another said: ‘I was gonna comment that it was such a cool and refreshing wedding dress lol.’
While another said: ‘I’m so glad I’m not alone that my first thought was that it’s a cool wedding dress! And then to read that it’s a guest’s dress to a wedding’
Someone else agreed saying: ‘100% I was like oh that is a very cool modern take on a wedding dress. Very minimalist chic.
‘Really not cool if not the actual bride. If I was a +1 at the wedding and didn’t know the bride, I would absolutely assume the girl who showed up in that dress was the bride.’
However some disagreed saying: ‘It’s an ugly enough dress I would frankly let her wear it anyways. NO ONE is going to think she’s the bride. They’ll just think she’s tacky and has a cheap ugly nightgown on at a wedding.’
Another agreed saying: ‘I think it may be more funny to let her wear it cause it’s so ugly.’
People rushed to the comments with advice for the bride-to-be with some claiming she should ‘disinvite’ her friend.

One person wrote: ‘It’s definitely a white dress. She can’t wear that to your wedding. If I were you, I’d tell her that I’m sorry for not bringing it up when she showed me, but that I’m not comfortable with the color of the dress she chose. And I’d politely ask her to choose another dress.
‘If she insists on wearing that dress, then it’s up to you whether it’s a reason to disinvite her. But it sounds like she knows the rules and shouldn’t be shocked that you’re not happy about her dress choice. So she knows it’d be disrespectful to you to wear it to your wedding. ‘
Another said: ‘Why not suggest dyeing it, rather than getting another dress? It would be more economical, and the dress is beautiful.’
While a third wrote: ‘I think in this case, finacé should tell the guest that the dress is unacceptable. He should definitely say something like, “It’s not your wedding. If you wear that dress you’re uninvited.’
The bride updated the social media users a few days later saying she asked her fiancé to deal with the awkward situation.
She said: ‘Hey guys first I want to thank all of you for your comments and your recommendations.

‘It just made me feel that my gut feelings wasn’t wrong and ı wasn’t alone to think like that thank you, I talked with my fiance about this and he talked to her husband saying that its so close to white and almost white that it made me uncomfortable,can you warn her about it, he told me that her husband said he didn’t know that she bought a dress and he will warn her.
‘But I’m thinking that I will write to her in a polite way tomorrow just to make sure she knows that I know what she is trying to do and its disrespectfull.Im unproblematic person and I don’t make comments if it’s not necessary but it doesn’t mean that i’m weak and someone can cross my boundaries.
‘I don’t think that she is my friend too and I know what she do is wrong. It’s going to be my happy day and I don’t want negative people to be around me.’
