I didn’t wear glasses at the wedding, since I am more comfortable in contacts. But I think it is adorable when brides do. Mrs. Spring Roll wore her glasses, so you might like seeing her recaps, she discusses her choice as well:

I think if glasses are a distinctive part of you, then wear them. My husband wanted me to look like myself. I remember seeing Lisa Lobe’s wedding picture and thinking “Of course, perfect” She would have looked off without them:

I’ll be wearing my glasses! I prefer them over contacts and I look like myself with them. You can do a thread search and find other brides on weddingbee who’ve opted to wear glasses.

I’ll be wearing my glasses and so will FI.  We wear them every day, and personally I think I look weird without them.  Not to mention I don’t see as well out of contacts than I do glasses.  I think you should go with whatever makes your more comfortable.  Four-eyed brides are adorable!

I’m not wearing mine. I were them mainly to watch tv or drive (I’m near sited). I tried both with them on and without them for our engagement pics and I liked the pictures better without them. So no glasses. I really shouldn’t need to see far away but I’ll have them handy just in case.

If you wear glasses everyday, then I can understand why you would want to wear them on your big day.  I do suggest having anti-reflective coating on your lenses to avoid glare in pictures.  What better reason than your wedding to pick out a new pair? Smile

I agree that if you always have them on, then you should for the wedding too! It would be silly to change something that makes such a big difference in the name of “perfecction.” If you do get a new pair, as some else said, be sure to get the antiglare and NO transitional lens, even if the wedding is indoors. It seem to leave weird yellowish tint. If you hold it up next to a white teeshirt then you can really notice. I hate how it shows up in pictures.

I don’t wear glasses, but I say go for it!  They always say you are supposed to look like yourself on your wedding day, so why change it?

A girl I went to college with wore her glasses for her wedding and she looked amazing. If you wear your glasses everyday, why go without them on your wedding day?!

I would totally go for wearing my glasses if it weren’t for the fact that I have the unfortunate habit of poking Mr in the eye all the time with them! So for his comfort (and to ensure he keeps his eyesight after we have been posed and styled into our photos) I’ll be wearing contacts. But I’ll probably sneakily change into my glasses at some point during the reception.

So go for it! You rock the glasses look every day then rock it on your wedding day!

I’ll be wearing my glasses as well, for the same reasons you mentioned.  I occasionally wear contacts and considered wearing them for the wedding, but my fiance was very pro-glasses (he’s always found me in them really cute for some reason) and it turned out to be one of the few things about the wedding where he was really adament.  So I decided to wear them because it was just more “me,” less fuss and made for a happy groom, so win all around.

Recently I went in and ordered a new pair of glasses, for the first time in years, and my fiance actually got a bit sad about it–he wanted me in the same glasses when I married him that I wore all the time that we were dating.  Too funny.  Luckily the new ones look pretty much identical to the old ones.

I don’t intend on wearing my glasses (I wear my specs 50:50 split with my contact lenses). I agree with what myfavourite and joeswifey said, don’t get a transitional lens, I’d say not because of the yellowy tint (my transitions don’t really have that) but your outdoor pictures (should you have them) would look a bit odd with your glasses darkened; get an anti-reflective coating/MAR coating (both mean the same), that way you won’t get so many lights bouncing off the lenses when your pictures are taken. If your prescription is high, I’d go the whole hog and fork out for thinner lenses too 🙂
