A woman has caused controversy online after revealing that she wore a wedding dress to her sister's wedding because she wanted an excuse to wear the gown twice.

Wedding dresses can be a pretty expensive purchase, especially considering most people only get one wear out of the garment.

There are not really too many occasions where one would wear the gown again, barring perhaps a vow renewal ceremony if the dress still fits years later.

However, one woman thought that the perfect occasion to wear her own wedding dress again was at her sister's big day, and it's safe to say everyone's been left divided.

A TikTok user called Anastasia took to the social media platform to show off the outfit she'd chosen to wear to her sister's wedding.

She told her followers: "This is my outfit of the night, I'm at my sister's wedding. She is upstairs at cocktail hour but my friend Madeline and I are just freshening up.

"So, I'm actually wearing my wedding dress. You guys can kind of see the bottom, and then, there is a bow in the back. That's it."

Anastasia captioned the video, which has so far racked up over 5.4 million views: "a dress so nice I wore it twice."

To be fair, it is a stunning dress and she does look amazing in it, but is it really appropriate to wear a wedding dress to any wedding that isn't your own?

Well, it seems most people agree it's a pretty big no-no, judging by the comments section.

One person wrote: "even if she is okay with it, why do you want to wear a wedding dress to your sister's wedding? like what is the reason?", as someone else added: "You don’t wear a wedding dress to someone else’s wedding event."

A follower wrote: "Did u say you're at your sister's wedding in a white dress...your wedding dress? What?", while another commented: "A wedding dress at someone else’s wedding… I’d throw you out."

One added: "You don’t wear white to a wedding especially when that dress is a wedding dress. That’s so rude," and another wrote: "You are wearing your wedding dress. To your sisters wedding. And you don’t see a problem."

A kinder follower commented: "I hope your sister was ok with that. Your dress is beautiful and it looks amazing on you."

Thankfully, Anastasia revealed in the comments that her sister, Francesca, had actually asked her to wear the gown, which had been redesigned slightly since her 2022 wedding, in order to fit the black and white theme.

The twins also posed for pictures together in their wedding dresses, and Anastasia revealed she did get mistaken for the bride "like five times" during the course of the day which, honestly, doesn't come as much of a surprise.

As long as the bride was OK with it, who's anyone else to judge?
