I have been thinking about wearing opera length gloves during my ceremony -I’d probably take them off for the reception- next March. I’ve always liked long gloves and I think my dress (Mikaella 1406) lends itself to them and I’d even consider lace or beaded gloves since my dress doesn’t have a lot of embellishment. However, I’ve gotten a few comments that gloves are dated, so I thought I’d ask the ever fashionable Bees for help. Please help me to decide whethere to wear gloves and, if yes, which ones. Thanks ladies!

I’m sorry but I do think they’re kind of dated. I also do not think they would go with your dress, and that’s mostly because your dress and fairly modern (and awesome by the way, I am jealous!!).
However, if you love them, then you should just go for it. It doesn’t really matter what other people think, it’s your outfit!! 🙂

I would avoid gloves with that dress because though the top is simple (and elegant), the skirt has a lot going on. I think gloves would be overkill.

I’m personally not a fan of opera gloves, but I think gloves can be done right.
One of my friends wore the cutest little wrist-length sheer gloves, and they were so chic. I loved them.

I love gloves!! I don’t think they are dated. Do what you think would look best!

I think it would be a tough look to pull off. Definitely those super shiny satiny ones and fingerless ones would look super dated.
I am a fan of short white vintagey looking gloves. Like Jackie Kennedy wore at her wedding…

I don’t think gloves are dated, and I’m not against them in theory, but I think your dress would look better without them.

I also think that they are dated…and your dress is pretty modern looking. I LOVE your dress by the way…it was one of my top contenders 🙂

Thanks for letting me down easy, girls. I suspected I was having a delusional moment and that they wouldn’t look right with my dress. Thanks for the nice comments about my dress too!
@Jacqui I hear ya! I think these Ines di Santo gloves are pretty darling.

When you first mentioned gloves I thought you were talking about wristlet style ones. I think if you’re doing a winter wedding then simple wrist length ones would probably work if you’re going for warmth along side a bolero or the likes.
I would agree with PP that I think long “opera” style gloves are outdated. For some reason they scream 80s/90s to me.
By the way I am getting married in the same wedding dress as you. I think that the Mikaella 1406 is too modern for long gloves…but thats just my opinion!

I think it depends on the style of the dress. I personally dont like the look of long sating gloves for your dress but think something shorter and matte would look fab. I myself have been considering getting lace wrist length gauntlets [fingerless gloves].. I’ve seen a pair at David’s Bridal but I’m still very undecided about it though

I think the Ines di Santo gloves are gorgeous! If you really I would go with those. The satin gloves are a bit dated but those are modern and very pretty.

I don’t think they’re always dated, but I do think shiny satin ones will appear that way. There was an article in this month’s Brides that suggested modern ways to wear gloves. I don’t remember all of it, but I think short (like mentioned above) and lace or kid were key to what they at least thought was a modern take. Your dress is really prettty!

I agree with a few of the other girls, I love the idea of gloves, but the short wrist length white gloves.
If I am not mistaken, I believe that when you wore short white gloves to a Military club in the old days, that it meant you were SPOKEN for.
So I think it would be LOVELY and something old if you could find the RIGHT pair of gloves.
I found these on ETSY.

I think long gloves are too outdated. If you really want gloves, I would go with short fingerless gloves… I wouldn’t go with gloves with fingers for the ceremony because you’re getting your ring placed on your finger and gloves with fingers could make it more difficult than need be. I know you could just take it off when it’s time to exchange rings, but still… Just a thought.
