Is it appropriate to wear a leather dress to a wedding?

My soon to be mother-in-law wants to wear one to my wedding! Knowing her it will not only be leather, but it'll be super-busty and super leggy... I absolutely don't want her to, but she insists.

No, a leather dress is something you would wear for a night on the town not a wedding. It is totally inappropriate for your mother-in-law to wear one.

Not unless she wants to look like the hired entertainment for the evening. You should take her shopping and pick out a dress that is a little edgy, yet still appropriate and tasteful. Have her try it on and tell her how hot she looks in it. Compromise?

I don't think it's appropriate, it's more for a night club than a wedding

I dont think that is appropriate at all. It appears she is just trying to get attention for herself, when it is your wedding day. Tell her NO.

That is difficult to answer, not knowing your family dynamics. What are her reasons for it? How does your fiance feel about it? Have you discussed the issue together? If you are both against it, then discussing it with her again, tactfully and honestly, should hopefully make her think.

Submit to her will, gracefully, for your future's sake. Hope the dress is a pastel shade and not black (shudder). Any bustiness/legginess will reflect on her, not you.
