I am having an outdoor wedding in August. When I think of being outside in August I think of sweat, sunscreen, deoderant and SUNGLASSES.
Is it appropriate to wear sunglasses during the ceremony? The reception? Obviously not during the photos, but how do you make a pair of sunglasses look "dressy"?
I’m wearing a pink polka dotted gown and I haven’t found any sunglasses that will work with the dress and my face, and be dressy enough.
Do you wear white sunglasses? Or pink ones?
Please help me find the right pair!

I wouldn’t wear them during the ceremony, you gotta show off that eye makeup! (i’ve seen pics with someone in the wedding party wearing them, it just doesn;t look nice)
Depends on the dress.. I’m always "bigger the better" for sunglasses.

I would suggest not wearing sunglasses for your ceremony. Rent large umbrellas to shade your eyes from the sun during the ceremony and then you can actually look your bride/groom in the eyes while saying your vows.

I don’t know how retro your wedding is, but when I think "pink polka dot gown" all I can imgine are some seriously FIERCE cat eye shades. Either white or pink, in my opinion, would be totally adorable. (The link below has some examples. I’d be happy to keep searching if you want more ideas.)
As for the ceremony, I’ve seen many people use a chuppa or something similar for shade during the vows. Really, any kind of a covered arch will do. Good luck!
PS What are the chances of seeing your dress? It sounds SO cute! 🙂

I bet if you looked hard enough, you could even make them work during the ceremony. And I bet there would be some ADORABLE photo opportunities with you looking over the top of your sunglasses at your groom.
If it’s in your budget, you might want to go to an actual eye glasses store; most can use any frames to create sun glasses. They’d have a wider variety of frames and may even be able to get lighter lenses so you’ll still be able to see (and be seen!) while your eyes are protected from the sun. White or pink glasses sound like they’d be wonderful with your dress, and I think smaller lenses might look dressier than something that covers half of your face.
