It's considered extremely bad taste to wear white at someone else's weddings.
Anyone wearing a cream outfit is also playing with fire, as its definitely too close to white.
But one clueless man has asked for advice after he ruined his friend's wedding – all because he wanted to prank him.
Taking to Reddit, he revealed how he upset his girlfriend and the bride with his thoughtless prank.
He explained: "My best friend and I are the type to always pull pranks on each other, it's just how our friendship formed and we always get a kick out of it.
"For example, he once invited me to a party and told me to wear a costume and when I got there, it was normal attire.
"I laughed after the initial embarrassment, and like I said we are comfortable enough to do that to each other.
"He held a wedding this past weekend, (socially distant, everyone was spread out and it was entirely outdoors).
"In the weeks leading up to the wedding, I told my girlfriend to wear white as it was expected all the women would wear it.
"She was reluctant but I told her that it was just a quirky thing the bridge and groom were doing, so she said "ok" and bought a white dress.
"When we got to the wedding, it was standard wedding attire and my girlfriend was mortified.
"When my best friend saw what I had done, he was cracking up and joked "I guess you two are getting married instead of us!"
"The bride was p***** off and made a huge deal out of it.
"Normally she is really chill so I was surprised by her anger.
"My friend even tried to calm her down and told her it was just clothing and it doesn't change anything.
"Now I feel incredibly bad by what happened. I really didn't think it was a big deal.
"I personally think this is being blown out of proportion but I don't know."
Unsurprisingly, the prankster's jape was not well received.
One person replied: "It wasn’t just your bestie that you did this to. You also did it to your gf and the poor bride. What an asshole move."
Another blasted: "He could have tried to get the gf in on it, and then she could have changed into an appropriate dress once the joke was made.
"The poor gf and bride."
A third replied: "Oh my god. This is the first post that's ever given me major second-hand embarrassment.
"There's a difference between a party and a wedding , you know a once in a lifetime ceremony.
"And you looped your poor girlfriend into it?!"
