To be honest I’m not a fan of the gloves. My eye goes straight to the gloves instead of your dress. It’s a look that’s a little dated I think. If you really love them then of course wear them….

I do think they’d look better if you wore a style that just went over your hands instead of up the arm. Just wanted to add that.

To be totally honest? I’m not a fan of these gloves.

I think you could totally pull gloves off, but would it be possible to find perhaps a lacy pair or one made of a more substantial fabric? These kind of just look like white tights to me. Check out Etsy or some antique stores; you have plenty of time to track down some beautiful ones before 2013!

As for the short arms thing, I don’t even think your arms look short. I think you could totally pull off gloves. Oh, and I don’t even see a farmer’s tan or a lack of toning, so stop judging yourself! lol;)

I honestly don’t like how it looks, it made me instantly think of  Cinderalla or any other Disney princess. If  you really want gloves, then finding a different style might be an option. What matters is what YOU think though…

I would ditch them and wear a bracelet, however, it sounds like you really like them and want to wear them so just do it. Sounds like you think they look great and go with your theme so do what makes you feel happy!

I’m generally not a fan of gloves but if you love them, that’s all that matters. I think they look great as is. What do you like?

Just an idea if you are concerned about gloves making your arms look short

Have you thought adding a cloak or capelet? It looks very fairytale, very romantic and could be puled off for a November wedding. It prevents any chill outdoors if a cloak, if a caplet it could be worn indoors. It’s also dramatic.

@woodwindwakerThen it sounds like it’s perfect. By The Way, I don’t think your arms look short at all. I do like capelet idea as well even more Princessy and warm. 🙂

They don’t look bad, but they seem a bit dated, and don’t really seem to go with your dress (which is beautiful, by the way). I would ditch them and pick a bracelet instead.
