Opera gloves have emerged as a major wedding dress trend as of late and it’s easy to see why. The elegant accessory instantly elevates any bridal look by adding just the right amount of glamour and drama. From high-fashion runways to celebrity red carpets, the opera glove trend has been absolutely everywhere in recent years, so it makes perfect sense that it would make its way to wedding fashion.

Galia Lahav’s Spring 2024 Couture Collection, AMOR, is a perfect opportunity to experiment with the booming bridal trend. With the collection's theme of romance and femininity, opera gloves are a natural complement to the striking and sensual designs, which are inspired by the iconic opera Carmen and pay homage to Spanish culture.

Whether you’re wearing a dramatic ball gown, sleek mermaid-style gown, or playful minidress, there’s no shortage of ways to wear opera gloves on your wedding day. Here are a few styling ideas to help spark your creativity and create your most authentic bridal moment.

Your wedding dress might be the star of the show, but that doesn’t mean you can’t go all out with your accessories. Simple yet mesmerizing, the Esmerelda gown features crystal embroidery along the corset top’s neckline, a voluminous ball gown skirt, and a sultry high slit. Styled with a wide-brimmed hat, red floral accessory, oversized hoop earrings, and crystal-embellished gossamer sheer opera gloves, this bridal look is simply show-stopping.

There’s no denying that the Emilia ball gown is fit for a princess. The delicate crystals on the bodice and matching sheer sparkling gloves create an enchanting look that’s straight out of a fairytale.

Elevate a Short Dress

You don’t need a full-length wedding gown to wear opera gloves. The mid-length Letitia ball gown is playful enough on its own with its ballerina-inspired neckline and feathered skirt, but a simple pair of sheer opera gloves takes it to another level.

Sleeves or Gloves?

The stunning Evelyn gown boasts floral embroidery, an exposed corset, and a cathedral train. The voluminous silk tulle sleeves not only create an alluring neckline but give a similar effect as opera gloves for the ultimate romantic moment.

Illusion Gloves

You might not even notice the Maribel dress’s gloves — and that’s the entire point. These stunning illusion gloves feature matching corded appliques and drape off of the shoulders for a seductive look. Another unique aspect of the Maribel? It’s really two dresses in one; the cascading silk tulle skirt detaches to reveal a fringed mini-dress that’s major afterparty material.
