I recently found a bunch of oooold old magazines (in PDF form) online, with knitting/crochet/embroidery/netting/whatever you can think of patterns inside. I’m a sucker for somewhat old-fashioned details (for example, the necklace I’m going to be wearing is a necklace from 1900!). With the myriad of beautiful patterns, I was thinking of embroidering some gloves to wear at my wedding (and I want to start soon to give myself enough time).
My question is, I know gloves are sometimes worn at weddings. Since my own wedding is going to be fairly casual (just wearing a simple white just-below-the-knee-length dress, and going to dress it up with my accessories) summer wedding, would it be too over the top if I wore gloves? I’m not talking full-on opera-style gloves (although that would be pretty!); maybe just some sweet wrist-length ones.

If you love it, go for it. I think with a shorter dress it takes on a kinda cute vintage-y theme.
Gloves are certainly a hard sell for most people, and WB is no exception, but remember that it doesn’t matter if we would wear them….it matters if you want to!

@bearlove: Good call, thanks for your input!

I like the idea, myself. I definitely second the wrist-length idea- anything more might be a bit much in my mind.

I have gloves (commercial white work gloves) and I think it may be a good idea to embroider a pair to match my dress! And yes, sadly, the beees don’t like “gloves”.

@NowMarriedNotHarried: Yeah I could only really justify wearing full-length gloves if I was going with a super formal look…which is NOT my aesthetic at all!
@happyface: I think it could look pretty if done properly! And I’m not 100% convinced I could do it, haha, but it’s worth a shot anyway! Especially since I have loads of time to get it done right.

@katedesaccord: Are you searching on etsy’s stores? There are many ancient and old-looking gloves. And news, but old-looking too. That could be fit with your necklace 1900’s style.
