Upstaging the bride in this dress?

My BIL is marrying his girlfriend in April. I own a dress very similar to this one (except it is Pale Green). Sil is afraid it will "upstage her" so she requested that I wear something else. This is the only dress I own that isn't black and un-weddingish. I don't have the money to buy anything else so I am thinking about not going. Pic in replies.

FAQs:
1. The dress is PALE GREEN, not WHITE.

Edit - I talked to BIL and told him that I don't think I am going to be coming. He really wants me o come so I explained the dress issue and we are working something out maybe.

Edit - BIL told me to wear the black dress. SIL didn't want that either. BIL offered to buy me one since she is having problems (his words, "what's the big deal, it's a fucking cute green dress!") We will see what she says...

Edit 3 - Apparently she got pissed when BIL mentioned to her that he was going to buy me a dress, they got into an argument because "he doesn't see why I can't wear the green dress" and now she is "calling the whole wedding off". I will update as things progress.

Edit 4 - Im just not going. Other SIL is wearing this dress (http://fashionattractive.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/one-shoulder-dress-sub-result.jpg) and I don't see how mine isnt appropriate/to her liking. It isn't worth the stress, so I will just stay home.

Haven't seen the dress but it's her wedding and you should respect her wishes. Don't pout. You can go to ross and get a nice dress for under $20
