Rings over gloves?

I’m getting married on December 1st outdoors, and while California doesn’t get that cold in that month, I’m planning on having opera gloves for if it ends up being chilly or rainy. My question is... do you have to take off the glove to exchange rings, or is it fine to wear the engagement ring and wedding ring on over the glove?

    You will either need to take the glove completely off to exchange rings or cut the glove where the ring finger is so you can slide your finger out of it while keeping the glove on. I also got married in December and thought very seriously about wearing gloves because I love how they look, but in the end, I didn't want to hide my beautiful nails and rings that day.

    ETA: I also got married in California. It definitely wasn't cold enough for gloves either, but I did enjoy wearing my vintage stole while I was outside.

    I think it'd be ok to put the ring over your glove but I'm thinking to myself you'd take the gloves off during reception right?

    Although I think the ring over the glove would look better, you will have to take into account that your rings should be sized to your finger, not your finger plus the glove, so you run the risk of your rings being to big to wear normally without the gloves or too tight to put on with the gloves to begin with

    Well cutting off the finger isn’t an option 😂 but thank you! And good to know that you weren’t too cold in a Cali December either.

    Wow, I didn’t even think about ring size over gloves. I could always test it out on a pair of gloves I have at home with the engagement ring. Thanks so much for pointing that out!

    I think a ring over a glove would look a bit odd. I’d just take off the glove.

    You don't actually cut off the finger part, but rather, make a slit so your finger can slide out and in so the finger part stays intact. I planned a wedding in the late 90s (didn't end up going through with it) but wearing gloves for the wedding was still popular back then so the options I am telling you about were what was done when brides wore gloves. You would never wear the ring over the glove. Not only would the ring not fit (most likely) but this would look very strange.

    I think they make bridal gloves that are made so the ring finger can slip off. I may be mistaken though.

    We just wore our rings over our gloves. Unless the ring fits really tightly, it will work.Rings over gloves? 1
