I find it too white and too skimpy. Both of these indicate that the wearer is striving for attention — and that’s not the look you want to go for at your brother’s wedding. You can still wear something beautiful, but look for something without so much cleavage or such high slits, and stay away from white, ivory, and beige. Go for elegant, not “all eyes on me.”

I do like the first dress for a beach vacation, though!

Not too much white but a “little” to revealing. Nice dress for a casual party or a vacation but not for a wedding. Pattern isn’t the issue, it’s the dress model.

I think if there’s any chance that it might offend the bride, don’t wear it!

The first dress is ok but I wouldn’t wear it to a wedding. Its very white and just too low cut in the front, the pattern is questionable but I do think that the style is nice for a more casual event.

The second dress is awful. For any occasion.

The third dress is fine.

The fourth dress is also awful.

I begin to think we are being toyed with  – surely no-one would really wear that terrible short lingerie -like ivory thing to a brother’s wedding !(or at all  )  Unless as a PP  has suggested  ,the OP really is trying to piss off the bride.

The first  and last dresses are entirely pretty and suitable , if revealing,  as general holiday attire  of course. The coral one would be fine for a beach wedding guest I think, though if it has no back at all, maybe not,  for the reasons  previously stated.

maybebee:  I won’t comment on anything but your original question- yes, I think it’s too white. Even if I’m in the minority, I think it answers your question that there is a chance she could agree! As PP have said, if there is a risk, don’t do it.

Too white, too casual, too skimpy… definitely don’t wear it!!! It’s not classy at all and definitely not the look I would go for at my brother’s wedding, especially if you and your Future Sister-In-Law already have issues.

The first dress is too revealing for a wedding, but I think the colour is fine.

The second dress is wrong in many ways, but I’ll go with “also too revealing, and too short” for now.

The third dress (the peach/pink dress) is absolutely fine. Wear that one.

The fourth dress is, once more, too revealing, with that big slit up the front almost to crotch level.

I should also say that unlike some PPs, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with showing your back. However, I was always taught that there was a general rule of thumb which is as follows: a lady can show her legs, wear a low cut top, or show her back… but she can only do ONE of these things at any one time. If you want to have a bare back, you need to cover the boobs and the legs up!
