An excited wedding guest was warned to pick a different dress after showing off the bargain outfit she'd bought for her friend's big day.

TikToker Jess Einaudi couldn't wait to show off the dress she had purchased for a black tie wedding - but viewers were quick to let her know that she should keep shopping. Take a look:

Jess told her followers that she 'did something kind of crazy' in ordering a dress for a wedding on eBay, before unboxing it on camera.

She explained that she was going for a Markarian-style corset look, but was worried it mightn't look quite right.

Pulling it out of the box to show the camera, she said: "It’s really beautiful - the corset is an overlay and then it’s [got a] floor length skirt and has some tulle underpinning."

When Jess tried on the gown, she fell even more in love with it.

"It's giving a little, like, medieval times. Ooh there's pockets!" she raved.

"I really like the corset top situation. I feel like it'd be even cuter if the bust line was, like, a little bit lower."

She then showed off the thrifted clip-on earrings she planned to wear with the dress, and the up-do she was most likely going to go for on the day of the wedding.

She asked her followers for their opinions on two things: whether or not she should get the straps removed, and whether the dress looked too much like a costume to wear to a wedding.

What didn't seem to cross her mind was whether or not the dress looked too much like a bridal gown, but viewers let her know anyway.

"Tell me what you think! Do I need to lower the bust? Is it too costume-y or is it perfect for a spring wedding?" she asked her fellow TikTokers.

"Do I try to have it altered before Saturday to do, like, a strapless? What do y'all think?"

And, boy, did people let her know what they thought.

"Imagine wearing a white and gold dress to someone else's wedding... immediately no," commented one viewer.

A second warned: "Very close to my wedding gown, you can't wear that to a wedding! Girlll."

Piling on with the criticism, a third told her: "It looks simultaneously like a wedding dress and a costume."

And a fourth gently added: "Love the dress, looks beautiful on you. But absolutely NO for wedding. Way too bridal."

Not everyone was against the dress, though.

Plenty of viewers didn't think it looked like a bridal dress at all.

"These people are unhinged. To me it looks nothing like a wedding dress!!" insisted one fan.

"What are y'all on this dress is not bridal at all? It's totally fine for a guest to wear, it's gorgeous!" claimed another.

What do you think? Is this dress too bridal for a wedding? Or is it the perfect wedding guest look?
