 Wedding Gloves: An Extra-Special Touch
Wedding Gloves: An Extra-Special Touch
Even though gloves are not as common as veils and headpieces, they are still a great way to add refinement to your look. There are a variety of options, from wrist length gloves that cover just your hands to opera length gloves that reach above your elbows. You can also choose from a number of fabrics that provide different looks, from classic satin to romantic lace or sexy sheer. Gloves are also a great way to add some color to your look by opting away from traditional white, and choosing a color that coordinates with the look of your wedding. The standard glove lengths are explained in this chapter, as well as suggestions as to which length is best suited for which type of dress.

Wrist Length

These short gloves simply cover your hands and end either slightly before or slightly after your wrist. This is a good option if you want to wear gloves, but do not want to cover you arms or if your dress has long sleeves. Wrist length gloves are less formal than the other lengths as they provide a simple yet sophisticated accent.

Elbow Length

Elbow length gloves stop either just before or just after the elbow. You will want to be cautious choosing this length of glove since it will draw attention to your upper arms. Elbow length gloves work well with short sleeved dresses, such as capped or off-the-shoulder.

Opera Length

Opera length gloves are the longest and most formal of all the glove styles. These gloves reach almost to the shoulder, ending at the top of your bicep. You may want to choose opera length gloves if you are having a formal wedding and wearing either a sleeveless or strapless dress. This is the perfect option if you want an open neck line but also want to feel covered up.
