Answer: It's normal for newly planted annuals to suffer from some transplant shock so the wilting is to be expected. They should perk up in a few days. If not, it's because they didn't get enough water over the weekend. If they don't revive, you may need to replace them.
Removing the outer skin from gladiolus corms might expose them to insect and disease problems but it shouldn't stop them from sprouting. If the corms were stored properly before you planted them and if you didn't plant them too deeply and remembered to water them often enough to keep the soil moist, they should sprout. They may wait until the ground gets a little warmer so don't give up on them yet.
Hope they sprout for you!
