A wedding guest has sparked outrage online after choosing to wear a gown to a friend’s celebration most have slammed as completely outrageous and inappropriate.

Taking to Reddit, a wedding guest shared an image from a family member’s wedding, after spotting another guest wearing an opulent cream gown complete with train.

“You’re probably wondering why this is shame worthy,” the image was captioned.

“Well how do you feel now that you know she was ***NOT*** the bride.”

Comments flew in fast and savage as the vast majority of people agreed the gown was definitely too over-the-top for a wedding guest.

Many even said they would have most likely sent the guest home to change.

“I’m normally chill with the whole white at weddings thing (eg I don’t see the big deal with a white knee length linen dress but I digress). If this isn’t a wedding dress then paint me red and call me an apple,” one person wrote.

“There’s no way you can explain yourself with this one,” another added.

“It’s not just the shade, or the length, or the shape, it’s ALL those things combined,” was another person’s reaction.

While a fourth wrote: “I'd send the guest home. I wouldn't care if it was a close family member or friend.”

There were not many positive or supportive comments on the outfit at all, proving this guests took things just a little too far.

That fact was highlighted by one person who shared a hilarious (albeit imaginary) conversation with a shop assistant.

"Hi, I'm looking for a wedding dress".

"Oh, first of all congratulations! When's the wedding?"

"Erm, it's not my wedding, it's in August."

"Ah, okay, so you're looking for a dress for a wedding."

"No, I'm looking for a wedding dress."

"I can see the confusion, but by wedding dress we typically mean the white frilly dress the bride will be wearing."

"Yes, that's exactly what I want."

"But you're not the bride?"

"Nope. How about that one over there?"
