THE TRUTH ABOUT WEDDING GLOVES
It's time for the facts of life...or least as pertains to wedding gloves. You never gave much thought to wedding gloves before. But now that you're getting married, aside from all the love and happiness, gloves are definitely on your mind. So let's discuss some well fitting tips.
Should You Wear Gloves?
For most formal weddings the answer is yes. However, for casual weddings gloves might be a little overdressed. The final decision is really up to personal preference. Some people enjoy wearing gloves and looking like a queen on a truly royal occasion. Others simply might have cold hands (but never cold feet) on their big day.
Choosing A Style
The style of glove is largely selected by the type of bridal gown as well as any specific theme your wedding has. In general, the longer your sleeves, the shorter the gloves. Therefore a sleeveless or strapless gown would allow for longer gloves.
Choose A Fabric
Texture is another point to consider. The fabric of the gloves must complement the entire dress, whether its sheer, satin, velvet or matte. Any crystal beading or flowers on the wedding gown would call for some matching on the gloves for a truly fashionable look.
There are four different glove lengths: opera gloves which range from 16-23 inches from the base of the thumb to the upper-arm; elbow gloves extend 8-12 inches; classic gloves which measure 4-6 inches and end below the elbow; and "shortie" gloves that extend only 2 inches.
Gloves And Wedding Ring
What about the exchanging of the rings? What if you get nervous and have trouble getting the gloves on and off? This can be a concern and this is one reason many brides let their hands get cold rather than risk embarrassment. However, there are ways around this. There are ring finger gloves, which allow an opening for you to slip your finger out and also display the wedding ring while wearing the gloves. There also gauntlet gloves which leave your whole hand open and prevents any restrictions. Whatever you do, always remove your gloves before taking a drink of red wine!
