    @mscuppycake:  It’d give me a little giggle as I inwardly judged, but that’s about it. Not one of the things I’d waste time on.

    I’d side eye them, but unless they were naked, I wouldn’t let it bother me.

    @mscuppycake:  It wouldn’t bother me more at my wedding than anywhere else. My friend’s wife wore a skanky dress to my wedding. The fact that it was 12 sizes too small on her just made me look better in comparison lol. She got a lot of snickers from my other guests that evening.

    There was a very scantily clad female at my wedding. All I did was look at her and think “damn, I wish I could pull that off” and continued with my night.

    A few guests did make comments on her outfit but I didn’t care at all.

    Depends HOW scantily clad. A tight, low cut dress is not worth fussing over. It’s how SHE is dressing herself, not how I am dressed.

    If it is RIDICULOUS (like pasties or something, although I cannot think of ever seeing anything this bad)it becomes disrespectful in my opinion.

    Yes. 

    I called my husband’s neice out on it the next time I saw her. 

    It’s rude & EXTREMELY INAPPROPRIATE! What the hell are some girls thinking?! It’s a wedding, not a night club.

    A couple of our friends showed up in really short, revealing dresses. I told them both they looked awesome. One of them was even wearing ivory, I didn’t care.

    I don’t think it would really bother me, but it would defintiely warrent a facepalm. Some women just don’t know how to dress to weddings, but at the end, nobody cares and she only makes herself look like an idiot. The only issue I think I would really have with it is that, although we are not religious, we are getting married in a Catholic church, so having your breasts and ass fall out is really innapropriate and uncomfortable for a lot of the religious people.

    I wasn’t bothered on the wedding day, but I am bothered looking at the photos. My co-workers were shocked by what MIL wore… a tight, short, one shoulder dress. She isn’t petite at all. I was too happy on the day to notice, but now I wonder wtf she was thinking. Also, my brother’s gf wore a hot pink tight minidress. She could pull it off, but she could have been a bit more conservative, knowing my family.

    I wouldn’t care.  They’re the ones that have to deal with comments or side-eyes.  It wouldn’t take anything away from me.

    @Chrysoberyl:  this

     

    At my wedding there were 1 or 2 people who wore very tight and short dresses. I honestly didnt care. However, after the wedding I had at least 3 people make mention of it.
