Waaaaaaay out of line. Don’t be so sure your cousin would not mind, but she might be too polite to tell you it bothered her even if you ask.

 It’s a beautiful dress but it’s not really wedding appropriate aside from the fact that it’s white.

I think both choices are kinda sexy/over the top for a wedding. I’m super laid back too (East Van, food truck wedding etc) buuut… I kinda think those are inappropriate. Your cousin might be to polite to say anything. 

What about a cute, flouncy knee length dress in a pastel? With a big, bold flower pattern? Even mid thigh I think would be better than cleavage or peek-a-boo.

Neither dress looks wedding appropriate. I like the two julies1949 posted. There r countless garden style dresses to be found esp as it is springtime. Think light flowy and femenine  though not short fitted and sexy. The latter would be more appropriate for a date night or girls night out.

Where in Canada? You might want something you can pair with a little jacket or something. I’m in Vancouver and weather is quite changeable here!

 I actually think they’re fine, despite the amount of skin they show.  But better safe than sorry–since all the pps think it’s not ok it means you’re guaranteed that at least a portion of the other guests will think so too.

 Not only is it too white, it’s also too low cut for a wedding IMO

The burgundary dress is fine, however the white one probably has too much white

Whaaa? Just because your cousin is laid back doesn’t mean she’ll be okay with you wearing a white dress to her wedding.

And yeah, as in opposite from the others bees describing themselves as “laid back”, I do not consider myself “laid back” at all, I would say that I dress kind of “dressy” and “classy” and I would never in my life attend a wedding in such low cut/cut out dresses. It is not only the color that is inappropriate but the styles too. 🙂

 

Be aware that a wedding is not just any “party”, it is (often) a religious ceremony, and even if they keep the church out it is often seen as “holy” for a lot of the guests attending (not only grandmas etc), and it is often apprechiated to show respect for that fact, and not only for the elders sake, also the couple would probably want to keep the dresscode at a certain “level” even if they are laid back. A dress can be laid back without showing skin, if laid back is the style they are going for. There are plenty of times in life when it is more suitable to try to look “hot” or “sexy”. Showing sneek peaks of your boobs I would say is considered very inappropriate for a wedding, so you should probably consider something more “modest” and “dressed”.

 

You don’t need to dress like a nun, but I am sure you will look super pretty even without showing all that extra skin.
