So, my fiance doesn’t like my new glasses and like a silly person I bought them anyway and now I don’t want to wear them on my wedding day. Are contacts an option? He is telling me that it will still be expensive because I’ll need to get an updated perscription for the contacts and all that jazz. Any ideas/advice?
my glasses ^

You do need a contact prescription. I think you should go with contacts. I think glasses in photos can look dated in a few years and you may hate them. You have a pretty face and should make the investment $100 or less and get contacts. Make sure you get used to them before the wedding if you have never had them before

I love your glasses! I’m looking at a very similar pair for myself after my optometrist appointment next Friday 😀
Do you still have your old prescription? If so, you only want contacts for one day, right?
You can input your subscription and get some 1-day wear contacts for pretty cheap 🙂

You’ll probably need to make an appt with your optometrist for the prescription. I don’t know how much contacts are these days (they never worked for me…could never get the right prescription nailed down so I had PRK surgery).

@KKay123: Thank you and I agree, I don’t want to look back and hate them, my style changes so often anyway! If it is 100 or less that is possibly doable 🙂
@Jessmicas: Thank you so much! Haha, I like my glasses, but the thought of him not liking my face on our wedding day because of it is driving me crazy!
@prisigtr: Thank you, I think I will 🙂

I am having the exact same problem, I only wear my glasses when driving or at work, but I can’t see distances. The last thing I want is a bunch of horrible pics of my squinting to see my FI down the aisle..ha
Going the route of contacts a few wks before the wedding to get used to them.

@Sminthy: I have to wear mine all the time, but yes! I think contacts will be the way to go!

I wear both glasses and contacts, glasses for work and running around and contacts if I go out or things i just dont feel like wearing my glasses to. I have one rx but it is for contacts and dr said it was ok to use for my glasses. however when I use to only get contacts, when i asked if i could get glasses with my contacts rx they said no id need a new rx for contacts. weird i dunno how it works but I got one for cotacts and tada i have both. I would talk with your eye doc and ask them theyll let you know. if you order contacts online they contact your dr to make sure the rx is correct and vaild. btw i have biweekly oasis contacts by accuve luv luv luv them and the are 30 bucks a box. hope this helps.
oh yeah usually you have to have an rx for contacts because the curve in the eye has to be measured i guess to make sure the contacts fit properly, and if you only have been looked at for glasses your rx wont have it

@wahine777: I think so too.

@KT_Hime: do you have insurance? Most insurances cover contacts. I ended up getting a set that was suppose to last 2 weeks per contacts and disposal them. But if you take really good care and don’t wear them often, you can stretch them far. You just have to switch out the solution often.

@KT_Hime: I wear glasses and I plan to do so on my wedding day too. I wouldn’t get contacts just to wear them on your wedding day. Why don’t you just get another pair of glasses? You can get frames for free (coastal.com) or cheaply (ebay, groupon) and have your optomitrist put your rx lenses in them. I plan on doing the latter option for my wedding day. Also, I love your frames now 🙂

I wear glasses.
I will be wearing them to our wedding.
There is absolutely zero chance I will be wearing contacts. I don’t see why I need to shuck out money on eyeware when my glasses work just fine.
Not to mention, you couldn’t pay me enough to touch my eyeball.

I think that the glasses look fine, and you will need an updated prescription (but it should be the same as your glasses) and you can get disposable ones 🙂 But they are difficult to put in the first few times so get a lot of practice in before the big day!

I thought of other glasses too if you usually wear glasses. You could maybe just go to walmart and get the exam and maybe you could get a sample pair, most of the time they give you a sample before you buy anyways.
