Vintage inspired wedding gloves

There is something so glorious about a bride donning a pair of gloves on her wedding day in my opinion.  I’m not talking the crazy fingerless gloves that scream 80s, I mean the timeless short little gloves teamed up with a sweet little 50s dress or a classic long pair of gloves worn with a dramatic 30s inspired gown.

Gloves aren’t every brides thing, but for those who love to either be quite authentic (remember it wasn’t really all that long ago in our past that it was scandalous for a lady to be out without her hat and gloves!) or just like a bit of fun there are quite a few styles to go for.

Short little gloves can look fabulous in delicate lace, or even hand crocheted.  They could be a sleek satin or even trimmed with a cute little bow.  When it comes to longer gloves, in my opinion a plain satin is the way to go.  I’m yet to see a pair of long lace or mesh gloves that I honestly love.

Do keep in mind the logistics of wearing gloves though.  For ease I would recommend not wearing gloves during the ceremony, so with this in mind there are two options.  Firstly you could remove your gloves before walking down the aisle and pop them back on for photos later, or you could remove them when it is time to pass your bouquet to your bridesmaid and hand both your bouquet and gloves to her.  If you choose to do it that way be sure to practice removing your gloves a few times as some can be quite tricky to remove and with all eyes on an excited you, your fingers can get quite fumbly!
