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

by The Knot
Q:

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!

A:

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.
