    Never been a fan of them, then or now.

    Considering that most gloves for brides are elbow-length, even if the ring over the glove is not flattering or appealing (especially since it may not fit correctly that way due to fabric in between), it is less awkward and time-consuming than trying to discretely and gracefully remove the glove at the ceremony during the ring exchange.

    Not a fan at all. I was 9 in ’89 and wore lace gloves as a flower girl for my sisters wedding. Ick. I’d feel smothered in them.

    I haven’t seen any that looked good in a while.  But I think the right woman in the right setting could make them look absolutely gorgeous.  The styles of most modern dresses don’t warrant them, however.

    I don’t love elbow length white satin gloves.  But I think there are so many different types.  I can imagine a whimsical, English garden wedding with a cap sleeve sheath gown and lace or mesh finger gloves.  Very fresh and modern.

    I am a teen from the 80s (class of 87) and I really dislike the way they look.

    The ones where just the ring finger part can be removed really bug me.

    @Ivorybuttons: I had to wear white gloves for high school graduation, so I don’t think of them as very bridal. I cringe when I see super hipster clothing like hot pink ray bans walking down the street from me. I went onto a major retailer website and cringed so hard when I saw what people are paying good money for.
