MIL asked what I was wearing to SIL's daytime garden wedding so I showed her online the dress I ordered. To be clear, she asked what I was wearing, I did NOT ask for her opinion on it. She said it's not dressy enough. The invitation specifically says it's a garden wedding (and of course that it's daytime). Usually a daytime garden wedding is pretty casual, sundresses and things.

Here is the link to the dress, the dress shown is white but of course I won't be wearing the white one, I ordered Bandanna Blue. I do have the body for the dress and as I am short, the dress is going to be longer on me then it is on the model (I tried it on in the store, they only had the white one in stock though). It goes down to just above my knee

I am very suprised to see that so many agree with MIL. Since that is the case, I will find a different dress. Thanks :)

I can already read the title and say, NO. Anything that says, sexy dresses should not be worn to a wedding - unless it's your wedding. Sounds like your MIL asked because they figured you'd wear something inappropriate.

I wouldn't want anyone's tits hanging out at my wedding, but maybe your SIL is different.

That's a lot of cleavage for a day wedding, IMO.

 I agree with MIL. That is not a garden wedding dress. Thats a nightclub dress.
