The guest could be seen having a hard time walking to the venue.

And she only had herself to blame.

“The wedding invite said no heels,” said Garrett Lexell (@garrettlexell).

The jokester’s sister clearly missed the memo as she awkwardly tried to walk on the rocky gravel without tripping in what looked like to be at least three-inch heels.

“My sister had to learn the hard way. A golf cart eventually picked us up,” explained Garrett.

Still, his sister, who was wearing a short, burgundy-colored dress, was all smiles as she tried her best not to fall before being rescued.

This follower had some advice for the wedding guest: “I would have done wedges. Easy to walk in and still heels.”

Others wanted to know how people worked around the wedding’s dress code.

“I’m curious as to what kind of footwear people were wearing. What else would you wear with that dress?” she asked.

“A lot of women wound up wearing heels, surprisingly. But a decent amount of cowboy boots, too,” he replied.

Another seemed to be on the same page as his sister.

“I wear a dress, high heel is a must!” she exclaimed.

Still, some would have welcomed the instructions: “My kind of wedding! I hate heels so I would be right at home.”

“The last wedding I went too, I had my mom bring me shoes because I couldn’t do heels anymore,” another amused watcher said of her own wedding fashion fiasco.

“All weddings should have a pair of emergency flats attached under the dinner tables!” Garrett joked.

“That’s when you take the shoes off and walk,” this viewer advised.

“She never removes her heels!” Garrett said of his stubborn sister.

“Walk in the grass,” another chimed in.

“The grass was somehow worse lol, bless the golf cart that saved us,” Garrett explained.

There seemed to be plenty of varying opinions on whether or not invitations should specify rules of attire as a debate raged on weddingwire.com.

“As a guest, I like having some direction on how I should dress, and I can’t imagine the majority of our guests cyber-stalking our venue just to figure out what to wear,” wrote one reader.

Expressed another: “My guests can dress how they want, I’m not expecting people to come in jeans and a t-shirt.”

“I don’t think I’d be offended by it – unless it requested black tie attire and wasn’t a black tie event – but I still think it’s a little out of place on an invite.”

She was warned not to wear heels - but his sister wasn't willing to compromise on her footwear
