A TikToker who was a bridesmaid for her friend recently has been slammed for 'trying to upstage' the bride after altering her dress to be more flattering.

Brittney Rae copped backlash after sharing that she was going to alter the "ugly" $300 dress.

In a series of videos, she showed how she transformed the dress from a wrap-style floor-length gown to a midi-length dress with cap sleeves and a lower neckline. 

"If I mess up I have nothing to wear and the bride will KILL ME..." Brittney wrote in her first video, sharing some sketches that she'd drawn showing two options.

"I had to completely deconstruct it first. I was a little stressed," she shared in a follow-up video, where she is sipping some wine while working on the design.

While Brittney was happy with her final look, some TikTok users suggested she had ulterior motives and was trying to overshadow the bride on her big day.

"Don't try to upstage," one user wrote. "We can all tell what you're doing."

"If I was trying to upstage a bride at her own wedding, I would have to do a little better than a homemade green velvet dress," Brittney responded.

"I'm going to say this... Her wedding is not about you!!!" another user commented.

"Did the bride give you permission?" a third questioned. "Then fine, great job. But if she didn't - the wedding isn't yours or about how you look."

"Imagine thinking you're the main character at someone's wedding," someone else wrote.

"If my bridesmaid had the cheek to do this to the dress that I chose I would tell her not to come to the wedding," another said.

Others defended Brittney, saying it's likely that the bride simply gave her a colour that she'd like her to wear, but not a specific style. Something she later confirmed.

"I can't believe the amount of negative comments on this post," one person wrote. "You killed it! The dress looks amazing and I'm sure your friend will love it."

"Are you guys okay in the comments, she clearly just needed the colour, not the dress and in what world would this upstage a wedding dress?" another added.

"Am I the only one who's OBSESSED with the after??" a third asked. "It's literally so stunning and is so flattering!"
