I’m personally not a fan, probably because of how dark the gloves are and that they look like they’re made of yarn–might be too casual with your dress. I don’t think it’ll look tacky, per se, but it might look slightly off, especially with a tiara and everything.

I’ll second that, @Statutory_Grape.

are you thinking long blue gloves or short?? (edit: I jsut say your link to the gloves) I think that those gloves are cute but maybe too casual.  

I personally like the short and think it could be super cute. i’m not a huge fan of long gloves though.

I agree with the previous posters.

I’m not a fan. You are mixing something pretty formal (princess wedding gown) with something quite informal (yarn knit gloves) and I don’t think it will mesh well.

You don’t want it to look to “pageant”-y, and I think the gloves really push it over the edge…

I agree with the others.

Something more formal would look better, if you want gloves… perhaps faux leather or satin, or even velvet would look good.

Too cluttered.  I think the texture of the knit would not harmonize with the textures of the bodice and tulle.  I also tend to not wear gloves unless there’s a sleeve involved, but that’s just me.

I think that if the gloves weren’t as dark and perhaps a bit “daintier” they would compliment your dress better- it’s such an elegant dress!!

What if you got a pair of short lace gloves and died them a very light blue?

Sort of like this picture but then dye it?

I’m really not sure I would do that. I’m assuming that you probably spent a not-at-all-small sum on your dress (don’t most people?)–but if you wear those gloves, no one will be looking at your dress at all. Their eyes won’t even go to your face first. They will go straight to those gloves.

Colors like that are showstoppers. Primaries draw the eye, and when they do, neutrals recede and fade into the background. When you’re wearing a white dress (neutral for all intents and purposes) and you’re Caucasian (beige is a neutral too 😉 ), all eyes will be on those gloves. And since they’re so nontraditional, and people aren’t accustomed to seeing things like that, they’re likely to stay there.

Which would be great if your hands were your best asset, but you’ve also got a smallish waist, a defined collarbone, nice hair and a pretty face. THOSE would be better places to draw the eye, IMO.

The bright blue isn’t necessarily bad, but I think it would serve you better as a satin or velvet sash at the waistline, in a fascinator, or as an accent color on your bouquet. (Or you could get white lace fingerless gloves and paint your nails that color!)


Also, just another thought…those gloves come a little too close for comfort to the fourth finger. Getting that knitting caught in your e-ring or wedding ring settings could be a disaster.
