Wedding Accessories: Must the Bride and Groom Wear Wedding Gloves?


My fiance and I are not crazy about wearing wedding gloves. Is it appropriate to exclude them altogether? I heard that wedding gloves must be removed before greeting guests at the reception, and not wearing them in the first place would make that easier!


Wedding gloves are completely optional. True, they used to be a must for any formal event, but not these days. Now wedding gloves are a more of a fashion statement. If you don't like them, don't feel that you have to wear them.
