@something_orange:  I’m going through this issue, also. I have a muscle issue that causes me to need glasses with prism (plus, I’m terribly nearsided). I can go without glasses for a bit and wear contacts, but all the photos would show me cross-eyed. I’m actually having muscle surgery for it in January. Is that an option for you? I’m just tired of seeing double and my super heavy eyeglasses!

I wore contacts for my wedding but they don’t bother me.  If yours do, just wear glasses.  It’s a perfect excuse to get a new pair! 

Personally, I look weird if I go sans contacts or glasses…I can only see well a few feet in front of me without them so I’m usually squinting when I dont’ have them on.  Not good for photos, lol!

I was just looking at this wedding blog post b/c the couple got married at the same venue as us and I was thinking how cute her glasses looked –

My and my fiance just did epics. He wears glasses 24/7 and we talked about having him take them off for the pics but I’m glad he didn’t, it wouldn’t have looked like him. The photographer had him angle his glasses a little to make sure they didn’t reflect any light and the pictures turned out great.

If you always wear glasses then that is your look and people will expect you to wear glasses.  Plus, if you can’t see without them then you definitely want to wear them so you can enjoy all of the details of your day.

@something_orange:  I can’t help you, because I’ll be wearing my contacts for sure. I always do when I dress up (mostly because I like to wear glamorous makeup on my eyes when I go out, and I can’t do as much makeup if I’m wearing glasses). If you can afford a new pair of glasses that’s a good idea, but don’t think it’s a necessity. Changing my glasses cost me a little more than 600$, that’s not an amount of money I’d be willing to spend unless I was really due for a new pair (sight had changed, etc.).

I haven’t had my wedding yet, but I’m 99% sure I’ll be wearing my glasses. While I don’t have a muscular issue like you do, I have astigmatism and they’re still working on making astigmatism contacts even close to as good as regular contacts. Also, the last time I wore contacts was before I met FI so he’s only seen photos of me without my glasses. I’d like him to recognize the person he’s marrying! So, since I don’t have a wedding photo, I thought I’d include one of our engagement photos. As long as you have a good photographer you shouldn’t have to worry much about glare.

@something_orange:  unfortunately I will probably be wearing my glasses.  I have a fake eye and anytime I go out of the house without glasses one EVERYONE and their brother freak out thinking something is going to happen to my other eye.

The reason I say unfortunately is because I wanted to do a headband, but they never sit right with glasses.   So thinking of just doing a flower behind my ear.

@something_orange:  I’m not married yet, but I will be wearing my glasses. They are a part of who I am, and I wouldn’t change that just for one day. You can always get a fun pair just for the big day 🙂

I’m undecided. Currently I’m thinking to do either contacts or a cute special pair for the wedding (I love Warby Parker and their $135 frames+ultra thin lenses!). My fiance wants me to wear glasses, but I just don’t like the way they look with a dress… It seems the white really brings them out, which is why if I go the glasses route I’ll get something much lighter and less prominent than what I wear every day.

I also have astigmatism, but can manage regular dailies for several hours. What I also love about contacts is that they don’t hide the eye makeup (and I plan on doing fake lashes and such), don’t get cheek smudges on them, don’t get glare or sit crooked… If only they didn’t make me want to gouge my eyes out after half a day I’d wear them all the time!

@luluvohn:  

@something_orange:  

I usually can’t do the stretchy headbands… I think the back of my head is deformed.  Nothing stays even the gripper ones.  They roll up… but maybe the ties would work.. I’ll have to see if I can find one to practice with 

Thanks a great idea thanks!

@something_orange:  I haven’t decided yet, I cannot wear contacts anymore as they do not make them strong enough anymore so going without glasses is not an option either.  I might wear a pair of contacts for a couple hours just because since I won’t be driving or anything I won’t need to see all that great.  I would think purchasing a new pair of glasses would be cool but then your glasses are a part of you and you don’t want to look extremely different on your wedding day.  Zenni is a great website for glasses, you just need your prescription.
