Wedding Gloves On or Off?

Wedding gloves are a lovely addition to any wedding, although the inevitable wedding etiquette of wearing wedding gloves and when to take them off inevitable come up as you make the final plans for your walk down the aisle.

During the wedding ceremony, the etiquette of gloves is extremely important. For wearing short wedding gloves you may remove them before the exchanging of rings, and have your maid of honor hold them for safekeeping. Longer wedding gloves are difficult to put on and remove, and the last thing you want is being embarrassed in front of your guest. For avoiding this problem you have several options.

Fingerless wedding gloves cover your arms still, but once you get to your fingers, they stop so that when your husband to be is placing your wedding band on your ring finger, there will nothing in the way. Additionally, some gloves come with a slit stitched into the ring finger slot therefore you can remove just your ring finger to allow the placing of the ring.

If you plan on taking your wedding gloves off during the ceremony practice before the big day, this way you will be sure to take them off with ease.

When it comes to wearing jewelry over your wedding gloves, the general rule is to only wear it if it is a bracelet designed to wear over gloves. It is proper to keep your wedding gloves on for the receiving line and your first dance as a couple. But it is a must to remove them before eating anything. Be sure to wear them in your pictures though; so do not forget to have them handy at the reception just in case you would like a few formal shots taken.
