Are you getting married in a place of worship that requires proper attire?  Or anywhere that requires a dress code?

How old is your step-sis?

I think if everyone looks at her super disapprovingly then that’s punishment enough, and actually could be quite fun!  I bet she actually won’t go through with it when she thinks about 50+ people looking at her like she’s a crazy person.

It’s not too harsh.

I thought non-Mormons weren’t allowed to even enter Mormon churches.

@Mrs.Larson11:  Why should she have to change how she dresses because someone else has a problem with it? Most religions teach tolerance and if your inlaws cannot accept that other people have different beliefs and views then they are not being very tolerant.

@j_jaye:  I think the problem is that this girl is doing it out of spite, she said it herself.  Why should anyone, religous or not, tolerate spitefull people who only want to disrespect you.

OP I would talk to your parent and step-parent and see if they are willing to talk to her or offer to help her pick out her outfit and they can try to stear in a different direction.  Good luck!

I’m gonna be the bad guy here and say that I think you and your Fiance are being a little petty.  While it might not be your favorite thing to have your little sister show up in street walker clothes, if she does end up doing that it will only look bad on her, not you.  I would just let it go, it doesn’t reflect on you in any way and shouldn’t change the outcome of your day or how happy you are to marry the man of your dreams.  Practice maturity and self respect and don’t stoop to her level by acting just as childish as she is.  I get that it’s frustrating, and that she’s doing it to spite you, but I really do think that making a big deal about it will only make the situation worse.  My advice is that you be the bigger person here and just let it go.

If she hates you, why’s she being invited to your wedding?  I know she’s your step-sister, but if she hates you, she shouldn’t get an invitation.  I’d recommend saying something to her like “I know you hate me, and if you don’t want to be there, you don’t have to come.  It’s most important that people who love me are at my wedding.”


If she does show up to your wedding looking slutty, she’ll be the one disrespecting you and many of the people there.  In which case, hold your head high, be civil, and let her be a brat.  Just let her make herself look bad.

@Mrs.Larson11:  There’s obviously way more backstory than what we know about.  I don’t think we can reasonably give you more advice on this situation.  If your dad is insisting she come, you’re deleting her off facebook, she’s making nasty comments about you, and who knows what else, then I think it’s officially too complicated for strangers on the interwebs to give you sound advice unless you’re willing to tell us the entire back story.  That’s up to you, but I don’t think I’d want to give my entire back story on an internet forum.  Sorry we can’t be more help to you.
