Finding an outfit to wear to a wedding can be tough, especially if you’re not lucky enough to have access to an bottomless pot of cash.
But one woman found herself facing a lot of criticism after she asked if her outfit idea for her friend’s wedding was appropriate to wear.
She bought the outfit for a charity event and was hoping to recycle it for the wedding to save some cash.
Sharing a photo of the outfit on Mumsnet, she said: "I am having to have the dress altered and taken in slightly so would be nice to get more than one wear out of it.
"It will only be the evening reception I am attending.
"It will be paired with black shoes and a black bag and the bottom of the dress is like a taupe colour."
But before long she was inundated with replied saying she definitely shouldn’t wear it.
While people loved the dress itself, they said the colour made it inappropriate for a wedding.
One wrote: "It’s a gorgeous dress, but being honest, I’d take issue with someone wearing that colour to a wedding. Save it for another occasion though, you look lovely in it."
Another added: "Absolutely not. It’s lovely, but not for a wedding. Just don’t be that person."
One women commented: "Personally I don’t think it’s an appropriate colour for a wedding."
One mum thought it could be mistaken for a wedding dress.
She wrote: "Nice dress but sorry no. Its the wrong colour. It would actually make a really nice wedding dress for a casual do, but which is why you can’t wear it."
But others didn’t agree and thought she should wear it.
One replied: "I am going with yes. It’s lovely, go for it."
Another agreed, writing: "Oh, thats really unusual and lovely! I think you could wear it to a wedding, with the right accessories. With something bold, like navy blue, the ivory colouring could be overlooked."
One woman wrote: "Personally I don’t think colour matters at the evening reception, does it?? Wouldn’t have bothered me at my wedding, mind you some people wore cream for the day itself and that didn’t bother me either."
