My FMIL has been sending me pictures of the type of dresses she would want to wear to the wedding. They are pretty dresses but Im not sure if they are appropiate. If it was me attended to a wedding as a guest I wouldnt wear them.
The only dress I would consider slightly appropriate would be the brown one.

These look like prom dresses high school girls would wear.

how old is she? Lol. I would try and talk her into getting something a bit more subtle. Those look like they are for prom or a pageant with all the skin showing.

@cmoest: If the brown one didn’t have such a high slit, I would agree with you. I find them all kind of inappropriate for the MOG to wear. Can she pick out something that has a low back, but doesn’t have chunks of the dress missing or such a high slit?

@cmoest: I think whatever she wants to wear should be fine, mainly because it’s hard to say you think it’s inappropriate without offending her. As long as she’s dressed up it should be okay. If you have the kind of relationship where you could let her know you think it’s too revealing or something then maybe tell her but I wouldn’t personally go there haha.

No, no, no, no. I don’t care if she has a rockin’ bod. That is way too much skin to be showing at a wedding (unless that’s a theme you WANT.) Have her look at Tadashi Shioji dresses… they are elegant and have those little extras that might satisfy her, without showing so much skin.

@cmoest: LMFAO! sorry. Does your FMIL think she’s still 17? I don’t care how great of a body she may still have. If she has a kid old enough to be getting married she should NOT be showing that much skin. No way in hell are any of those dresses appropriate outside of junior prom.

If she’s 20ish and has a nice figure, I’d say go for it!
If not, tell her to come back to reality. People have to dress for their age.

This wouldn’t really look good on many people… I hope your FMIL isn’t serious.
Anyway, I would tell her “I’m sorry, these show too much skin” and shoot them down.
Like PP’s said, these are pretty much overexposed prom dresses.
The brown one is the most appropriate out of all of them, but it looks very cheaply made (and, uhm, that giant leg slit).

Is this a joke? There’s no way a woman old enough to have a child getting married thinks these are appropriate dresses for ANY wedding, much less her son’s.

@cmoest: I…don’t think they’re appropriate. Maybe you could find some similar dresses in the color and shape but with less skin showing/cutouts and send them to her, with a little blurb like, “I looked at the dresses you sent me and thought maybe these ones would be nice for you?”
