okay, so I’ve been planning on a bride cage veil (probably an asymmetrical one), but have recently noticed that I’ve never seen pictures of brides with glasses & veil down. Contacts are just not an option for me, so I was wondering what everyone else thought? Will it look okay? For Brides with glasses, what is your plan & what type of veil will you wear?

I don’t think glasses and a veil cancel out each other at all! Everyone I’ve seen get married with glasses on has also worn a veil. i say–go for it!

With a bird cage veil, I think it would depend on the style of glasses. Bird cage veils have a certain style, that in my opinion, need continuity of style with your other accessories and dress.
I also wear glasses and I am undecided about wearing them. I don’t want to be squinting to see the end of the aisle, and I have been told that I look good in my glasses with a Mantilla veil.

I think this will look great! Here are some pics:

Haha, I’d never thought of this, I think a half blind bride would be pretty bad…I hope I don’t lose my contacts when I get teary eyed or something.
I think the photos @jordynrose posted look awesome!

I’m actually getting new glasses/frames just because of the wedding. I mean, yes, I HAVE had these frames for like 7 years or something now, and YES I am due for a new prescription soon anyway, but the wedding is actually the biggest motivating factor in doing it 🙂
I’ve got wire frames now and I’m going to switch out to the plastic colored ones (similar to those jordy posted). My biggest worry isn’t that it’ll look bad, my biggest fear is that the little screws on the hinges will catch on and tear my veil – I’m doing a tulle bubble birdcage, and my glasses already catch on stuff all the time (like my hair – ouch!).

Wearing a pair of one-of-a-kind frames that aren’t your usuals would make a great visual impact on your wedding — I say go for frames that coordinate with your dress. To be even more daring and dramatic, go for frames that coordinate with your flowers. Let your glasses be an extension of your bouquet: a visual splash! You could also go super light and understated — ie frameless lenses that barely show.
Another thing to consider is having your photographer take some of your wedding shots angled slightly from above. Everyone who wears glasses knows the infamous “over the lenses” shot (alternately called “Bloggerface” or “MySpace pose”), and it’s common for a reason: It’s a great way to keep your glasses on, but let your eyes show.
