A woman has faced backlash for wearing white to her friends wedding.
Take a look below:
The conventional way of thinking is that, unless you're the one getting married, you shouldn't wear white to a wedding.
Although there are many reasons as to why you shouldn't wear white, the modern basis seems to be because you don't want to upstage or upset the bride by doing so.
As shown in the clip above, the woman is rocking a white dress with green heels and a pink bag.
"The dress is from PrettyLittleThing, the shoes are ASOS, I’m pretty sure the bag is from ASOS too," she told her followers.
As the clip went viral, people flooded the comments.
One person said: "No you don't wear white to a wedding only the bride."
Another added: "Never wear white to wedding unless you're the bride."
"It’s beautiful but I don’t really think it’s appropriate for a wedding," someone else thought.
Since the uproar, Lacey-Jade has defended her decision to wear white and has explained that she got permission from the people who were getting married to do so.
She said: "So let's start with, do you know why brides wear white to weddings, because back in the olden days it was a sign for you to signal that you were still a virgin and that you were still pure and you still had moral value and value to a man.
"Are we still doing that in 2022? Really, also not assuming in 2022 that people who are getting married are automatically brides, because I'm in Australia and same sex marriage is legal here.
"But this wedding in question has two brides and one was wearing Ruby red and the other one was wearing emerald green."
She added: "Just in case you're concerned, still with your outdated theories and points of view, and before you get back on your high horse, I am the kind of person that asked the bride or the person getting married 'what colour the bridesmaids dresses are?'"
Many of her followers seemed to favour with the TikToker, while one person offered another suggestion: "Literally the theme for my wedding will be 'Out-do the Bride' because I want everyone to feel special that day."
That sounds like a great idea, to be fair.
