Gloves and the Bridal Party


I'm getting married on May 16 in Dallas, Texas.  I was just visiting  your web page and I received some great information.  I do have a couple of  last minute questions for you. 
After reading the information on "Gloves and the Ring" I was confused about one thing.  I will be wearing lace gloves and will be taking the gloves off to when I hand the bouquet to my Maid of Honor.  I read that after the ceremony, the pictures should be taken with the gloves on.  Should I put my gloves on over my wedding ring?  I just hate to take
off my ring because we will have been just wed.

My second question is this:  I'm having a bridal luncheon for my  Bridal party but wanted to know if traditionally other people attended as well (i.e. mom, mother-in-law to be, etc.)?

Thank you,


Dear Nicole:

Always remember, regardless the advice or etiquette given by myself or any other bridal consultant, YOU must make the ultimate decision on what is right for you.  The moments concerning wearing gloves for your pictures, is simply that the pictures will reflect your chosen "wedding look."  Depending on the style of  your gown, you may have chosen gloves to give your ensemble a "finished look."  If this is the case, then you will probably  want to wear  gloves for at least a few of  your formal pictures. 

These pictures will  be a "forever remembrance" of your special day.  I wouldn't even consider suggesting you wear them all day or for all your pictures.  If your formal pictures are taken before the wedding, the problem is solved already. 

I understand  not wanting to remove your wedding ring.  I wore mine for 17 years without ever taking it off one time, until my husband surprised me with a beautiful new set on our 17th anniversary. 

In answer to the question concerning inviting your mom and mother-in-law to your bridesmaid  luncheon:   YOU are the bride, and it is up to YOU who you chose to invite. Your mothers would be honored guests, and receive a special invitation to join you and your maids.  Traditionally, the bridesmaid luncheon is a time to thank your friends for their participation in your wedding. It's a time to relax, discuss final wedding plans,  share in old times,  and is perfect for giving your gifts of appreciation.

If you do decide to invite your mom's, do something special to honor them as well, such as giving each of them a beautiful long stem rose when they arrive or a small corsage.  Your thoughtfulness will be long remembered.
