My sister is getting married in June and she is going to have the bridesmaids dresses made by a family friend. She emailed me this picture of the dress she wants all the bridesmaid to wear. And I think it is too slutly for a wedding! link Do you agree that this dress is slutly? I think she should make it longer and have a more square neckline! Please give your opinions so I can show her them because I really don't want to wear the dress that is in the picture!
She now thinks this dress link is the one! Better for the wedding I do believe! Thanks guys yall are great!

I know it's her wedding, but that's definitely not a good idea for a bridesmaid dress. I agree with you, it's pretty revealing. To me, its a clubbing dress, not something you would wear to a wedding. And honestly, it's something that if someone wore that to a wedding, they would probably get kicked out or laughed at.
I think you need to talk to her. You shouldn't have to give in simply because it's her wedding. You should be able to tell her how you feel about this dress. If you are not comfortable wearing it, then you should say so. Don't attack her, just let her know that you think it's too revealing for a wedding. There are definitely elements of the dress that could work (see my suggestion below).
Plus she should think of her other bridesmaids as well. Some of them might not be comfortable showing that much skin, especially at a wedding.
There are definitely some elements of the dress that could work. Like the cowl neck for instance, and even the back.
This is a wedding dress, but it incorporates those elements without being too revealing. In a different color it would definitely work as a bridesmaids dress.
If you did that dress in black, and then wore long stranded necklaces you would still get the feel of the dress she wanted you to wear, but with more modesty and elegance for a wedding. Maybe looking at dresses that have similar elements to her choice would help her see what you are talking about.
