Being a popular Instagrammer, Rachel shared pictures of herself wearing all five dresses, asking her followers which one they liked best. Well, reactions in the comments show how toxic social media can be.

Each one is absolutely gorgeous and you are beautiful in them all.

Love them all. Just stunning. You made all the dresses look beautiful

You look absolutely gorgeous in all of them! And yay for you for sticking up for what you want!!! 💖💖💖

Okay those dresses are absolutely stunning. I couldn’t have narrowed it down to 1 either. And you shouldn’t have to! It’s YOUR wedding! Congrats! Wishing you and your hubby the best!

As it is expected on social media, there have been negative reactions aplenty in the comment section. Some called Rachel “narcissistic” and “selfish” and some went as far as to suggest that her marriage wouldn’t last:

Why did you need five? That's honestly all that comes to my head.

And you’ll probably end up divorced...gross...just over the top.

Little did critics know that Rachel donated four of her five dresses. She left two dresses in the Maldives for local brides who can’t afford a gown, and the other two went to the UK charity Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust, That’s Life! Magazine reported.
