"choosing our gloves"
Sounded like a custom such as the providing of mourning clothes or mourning rings. Found the following with a quick google:
"The lovely custom of distributing Wedding Favors has been around since ancient times. In the late 17th century, guests were given favors such as scarves, garters and gloves." http://www.pepysdiary.com/diary/1662/01/23/#c26994
