Olivia Wilde has defended herself after breaking the number one wedding rule - wearing white to someone else’s big day.

Not only did she wear white, but Olivia actually donned a wedding dress for her pal's nuptials so she could make a joke during a toast.

Olivia was one of 200 guests who headed out to Napa Valley in California at the weekend to watch Colton Underwood and Jordan C. Brown get hitched.

And it seems that the Don’t Worry Darling director had an important role - revealing that she’d be getting up to toast the happy couple.

Sharing a snap of herself in the beautiful ivory grown by designer Nili Lotan, the 39-year-old wrote: “Wore a wedding dress to a wedding so I could make a joke about it in my toast.”

Major faux pas, right?

Well, in a follow-up post Olivia quickly confirmed that ‘the grooms approved’ of her outfit and shared a snap of the three of them sharing a moment.

But that didn’t stop people on social media from weighing in with their opinions.

In a post on Twitter, one person said: “idgaf who it is literally why would u wear a wedding dress to someone else’s wedding… like I’d be high key mad if someone did this on my wedding day.”

Another said: “This rubs me up the wrong way. Sorry.”

While a third commented: “This is so weird of her and wildly inappropriate.”

“When I saw this on her story I genuinely tried not to scream,” said a fourth Twitter user.

A fifth person joked: “Olivia Wilde is wild and that’s that.”

However others defended Olivia’s choice of outfit, with someone else writing: “She's clearly joking and the happy couple clearly had no issues with her dress.”

And another questioned: “Why are people mad about the dress when not even the grooms didn't care?”

Someone else added: “If the grooms don’t care why do we? I would have kept it off social media though.”

And, for what it’s worth, it seems the grooms were more than happy to dispense with tradition for their ceremony anyway.

In an interview with People magazine on Sunday (14 May), Colton said he and his new-husband wanted ‘to break some of the traditional norms of what a ceremony and a wedding look like’ - well it seems like Olivia got the memo at least.
