Talk to the bride and only the bride about this — your mother’s input nor anyone else’s doesn’t matter. If the bride is cool with any of your ideas (Sunglasses or eyepatch), go for it. It’s her wedding and it’s her photos, so I’d see what she’d be okay with you doing.

If it were me, I’d totally ask for the eye patch. Yarr.

Personally if you were my bridesmaid I wouldn’t care.  I would just want you to do whatever you wanted.  I could understand why you might want to drop out of the bridal party, not being picture, wear some type of cover up, or just not care.

I think you should talk to the bride and find out what she wants.

These are questions for the bride.

If I were the bride, though, I’d be all for the pirate patch!

Yes, these are questions for the bride, and as a 3 time MOB, I disagree with your mom.  If you were my BM, I would just be thrilled that you COULD be in my wedding and I would want you to do whatever you needed medically and to be comfortable.

This!  If it were me I’d like you to talk to me about your worries.  Obviously you were important enough to be in the bridal party, and then I really wouldn’t care so long as you were there!
