@gingerkitten:  I don’t think there is a good way to tell her what to wear or not to wear without coming off as a bitch! But I see you said you aren’t going to anyways. Along with the 2 things you said you would mention, I would also mention what you “think” some of the other women are planning to wear (mom, aunts, sister, friends, anyone). Like a floor length gown or a high necked cocktail dress, or whatever you want her to think others are wearing… maybe she will take the hint?

And, I do agree that both of those dresses are inappropriate for a formal wedding.

Good luck! If she does show up wearing something skanky, don’t dwell on it and let it ruin your night. She is the one that should be embarrassed and will be our of place.

I would let it go.  How she dresses for your wedding doesn’t reflect poorly on you.

You can’t teach modesty or class. She’ll just have to grow into them someday (hopefully). Clothes like that say “look at meeeeeee!!!!”; don’t give her the attention she craves.
