I agree with missbiscuit. The dress is so gorgeous but the gloves take away a bit. How will you exchange rings? Will you wear them over the glove? Theyre also so shiny in comparison to the dress, I’m not sure the two fabrics work together. I think a shawl in the same fabric might look gorgeous though, and then you still have that old hollywood style without worrying about your circulation 😛

looks amazing! but i would definitely go for ivory gloves that arent shiny as the white satin takes away from the dress. you look stunning though!

This is your dress!  It is so vintage and you pull the look off superbly.  It is a perfect fit!!!  What will he wear; the attendants?  Don’t forget to show us the the total look.  I’ve never seen a gown like that before.  It is so different and very lovely!!  People’s jaws will drop.  It is unexpected.  Don’t go showing everyone and giving the surprise away!

Have you tought about a tussy mussy for the bridal attendants and a small one for his lapel?  Joanne’s fabric’s sells the lapel ones in what looks like silver for under $5.00!!  I wasn’t able to find larger ones for the bridesmaids to carry, but they are not instyle here and the florists didn’t  have them available.  Maybe in a different part of US from where I live, or your florist would be more apt to carry something like that.

Now, girls!  I think the gloves are different and very vintage.  It takes someone sure of themselves to pull off wearing something less traditional.  I’d say ‘go for it, ‘ and good for you!!!  Really.  It may not be your taste; but, gloves are very classic in the old world sense.  That’s why I said a ‘tussy mussy’ would go great!!

If you do anything, you may want to dip the gloves in weak tea to make the tone less pronounced.  If you  hold them up and they are the same shade as the dress, don’t bother w/the tea.  But if they are a little whiter than the dress, try the tea dip.  It really works.  No green tea or fancy teas, plain old tea. 

But my sense is they may be fine.  There is a bright light shining of the gloves which may make the color more sharp; only you know for sure because you can see the dress and gloves side by side in the same light….

I love your spirit!  What’s your thinking about a veil?
