So, I just got contacts today (and I’ve never worn them before, I was always kinda afraid to try them out), but they really aren’t bad and I’m already liking them a lot. I mainly wanted to get contacts so I could go without my glasses for the wedding.
The worst part about them is the whole putting them in and taking them out procedure. I got the daily disposable kind so at least I can throw them away after each daily use, but it took me forever to get them in my eyes for the first time cuz I am not very good at holding my eyes wide open. I also need to get more comfortable touching my eyeball, but I think that will come in time. I am so excited for the wedding and I’m really happy I decided to get contacts!
Just curious if anyone else here is getting contacts or doing other major beauty alterations for your wedding?

Hang in there with the contacts. I’ve worn them for 28 years and haven’t thought a thing of it for over 27 years. By the time your wedding day comes around, you’ll be fine.

Yeah, you get used to it fast! I’ve been wearing them since I was in 7th grade, and the first few times are hard, but I could do it in the dark now!

Just keep practising and it will get so much easier! After a few months of wearing mine, I could put them/take them out anywhere.
I don’t wear contacts any more but the not-being-afraid-to-touch-your-eyeball skill is still useful for getting stray eyelashes and things out too!

I love having my contacts, but my eyes are really sensitive so I can’t wear them long. I’ve been trying to wear them a little longer every day to train myself for the wedding day!

I’ve been wearing contacts for almost 15 years… and am considering getting lasik eye surgery before the wedding so I don’t have to deal with my contacts! =P
Hahaha, it would also help me out in every day life. My eyes get really dry and the contacts agitate them, even after trying several different brands.

Thanks guys. I really like being able to see without my glasses, but putting the contacts in and taking them out is a hassle. I especially hate taking them out, it took me like 45 minutes last night to get them out. Any tips to get them out easily would really help me. My eyes are adjusting to them pretty well already so I don’t think I will have any problems wearing them for my wedding.
