You should be able to be who you are and dress as you wish, but unfortunately so unfortunately , this doesn't seem like a safe and comfortable environment for you to do so. But if it's really important to her that you be standing up there beside her and you can't find a clothing compromise then I'd suggest sucking it up for this one day and wearing what would make your sister happy.
I'd also recommend that you do not ask to leave right after the ceremony, it can be very hurtful. Regardless of what you choose, be present for the day, and try to focus on your love for your sister and celebrating her happiness. Try to put your own feelings of discomfort and dysphoria to the background just for this one day. I really feel like this is something that should be discussed with your sister.
Tell her your concerns. Ask her what she's comfortable with you doing. Go into the conversation knowing what you want as the best possible outcome and which outcomes you're willing to accept. Offer those options to her. It's possible she hasn't really thought about how this will affect you. It's also possible that she wants the real you by her side because she fucking loves the real you.

I'm deeply estranged from the majority of my extended relatives. I thought I had enough to worry about with being nonbinary and potentially needing to deal with gender dysphoria on the day, but many of these relatives are horrendously bigoted as well.

Have fun. I remember being on the dance floor at our wedding and Allison was dancing. We were at a mutual friend's wedding about nine months before and Allison refused to dance with me. But here she was, at my wedding, dancing. I was so excited that I had to say something. Accidental threat? But it does come with the territory. When you're a bridesmaid, you have to help get the party started. If there's a conga line, you need to be on it. If you're single and the bride is going to throw the bouquet, you have to try and catch it.
Just be involved and have a good time at the party. If you see someone sitting alone, grab them and bring them to the dance floor. Dance with the ring bearer. Cha cha with the groom's grandpa.

Whatever it takes to be involved and help the guests have a good time, do that. Ask the bride if she needs anything. Every once in a while, check on the bride. Find her and ask her how she's doing and if she needs anything. If she asks you to grab her a glass of water from the bar because it's impossible for her to get there without getting stopped by thirty people, then you walk to the bar and get her a glass of water. Don't stop to talk to anyone. Don't get distracted.

Just get her a glass of water and come back to her with it. And if she asks you for an aspirin because her feet are killing her, you ask every guest until you find a pair of aspirin for the bride. From Kristiana: " Make sure the bride drinks water. Make sure her dress straps are straight in case they start to fall. Fix a curl that's caught in the veil. Make sure that any to-go food prepared by the caterer is not stolen by a wedding guest.
