Q: I was just wondering, my gloves for my wedding are satin above the elbow and the finger parts are not open. On the wedding day the priest will take off the wedding ring from my right ring finger and place it on my left ring finger. What do I do then? Attend without the gloves then wear them in the reception afterward? Or wear them but then take them off at the time of wearing the ring?
A: You have two choices. If your gloves are thin enough, you can wear the ring over your gloves. Or, wear your gloves for the reception only. Remember, ladies remove their gloves when eating.
