Gloves are a classic, vintage fashion accessory that are back in style. When paired with a wedding gown or suit, gloves add timeless elegance. Fingerless gloves are a good choice if you want to wear long gloves and do not want to take them off to exchange rings. Long gloves, sometimes called opera gloves, paired with a sleeveless or short sleeve gown are a timeless combination. Short or bracelet length gloves are prefect for morning or afternoon weddings. Short gloves are also easy to take off and hand to a bridesmaid during the exchange of rings. Decide ahead of time if you will be taking your gloves off when exchanging rings or if your ring will go over your gloves (be sure to test this before the ceremony!).
Fingerless Wedding Gloves
Fingerless gloves add a touch of glamor, as well as modesty, to a wedding day outfit. Fingerless wedding gloves are a good choice if you do not want to deal with taking off a glove during the exchanging of rings. Fingerless gloves come in a variety of styles and colors. Short, long, lace, satin.
Long Wedding Gloves
Many veils are attached to your hair with a comb. In comb style veils, the functional comb is what the veil fabric is attached to and are hidden from view. Headbands can be used for long or birdcage style veils and are easy to add or remove from wedding day hairstyles. Barrettes or hair clips are other ways to attach a veil, make sure they are compatible with your planned hairstyle.
Short Wedding Gloves
Short and bracelet length (just longer than the wrist) gloves are the perfect accent to a more modest wedding dress. They are also a fabulous accessory for brunch and afternoon weddings. While white is traditional, black or other bold color are definitely statements. You may want to wear them throughout the ceremony and reception, or only when departing.
Romantic & Magical DIY Weddings
Gloves are a wonderful and fabulous accessory to your wedding ensemble. Make a statement with color or accent a classic look with white. However you use gloves, make sure to try on several pairs to find the size and fit that works for you. Gloves that are too tights will feel, and look, uncomfortable. Gloves that are too loose will also be noticeable, and if they are long, will sag. Vintage gloves are also an option. Family members may have kept meaningful pairs that they have worn. Or, look in thrift shops for vintage lace styles.
