The wedding guest — who is the bride's father's partner — had sent two images asking for the bride's opinion because she "[couldn't] decide".

The bride quickly replied: "You can't wear white hahahah gotta go with the purple" to which the guest responded: "It's ivory lol I'll try it on and show you the purple when I go out next and get your opinion." After sharing the exchange online, other users were divided over the issue, with many agreeing with the concerned bride.

One wrote: "I think it's more of a lack of respect thing. Like they know that traditionally they shouldn't do it, but they don't respect you enough to care."

While another said: "What matters is the bride's feelings. It's simple."
