I wore mine and wouldn’t have had it any other day.  My goal for the day was to be comfortable and I would NOT have been comfortable wearing contact lenses.

I’m wearing my glasses…I’ve never worn contacts. if you look on Offbeat Bride they have TONS of pictures of brides with glasses.






I also plan on buying new frames, because I have transitions right now (they were a huge dissapointment, I don’t reccomend it) so I’ll probably get prescription sunglasses at the same time.

I wore my glasses on my wedding day.  I would have preferred to wear contacts, but I tried in the doctor’s office and panicked when I had trouble getting them out.  Needless to say, I left the office with my glasses and no contacts.  I originally wanted to not wear my glasses for my wedding day, but my Darling Husband said he really would prefer if I wore them because it’s part of my look and it makes me “me”.  I still wish I hadn’t worn them though, because in some pictures part of the frame (they are plastic frames) covered a portion of my eye.  In the picture that XxMyXxDecemberXx posted, it looks like that bride had that problem too.  Part of the frame looks low and is covering a little bit of her eye.

I’ve also been a four eyes since 4. I tried contacts for the first time last year and will be wearing them for the wedding. I think it’ll be easier for pictures and everything else. Plus, I have a lazy eye that gets noticeable when I’m tired/stressed and it doesn’t turn as much when I wear contacts.

That said, I don’t think glasses are tacky. And if your mental picture of yourself is with glasses (which knowing what it’s like to wear glasses 24/7 for 24 years, I’m sure it is), you shouldn’t hesitate to wear them. Your pictures will look like you!

I don’t think I’m going to wear my glasses, but I’m kind of worried about wearing contacts, honestly. It doesn’t seem like they’re comfortable to wear for more than a few hours for me. I plan on hitting the optometrist before then and seeing if I can find a brand that’ll work for me. :/

I have never tried contacts and they would terrify me (I’d worry all day about getting them out in the evening – don’t need the stress!) so I will just stick to my glasses, especially as I don’t feel I look like me with glasses off. Maybe I will take a few photos with them off for fun though!

@LuvMySailor: WOAH! Tell that nosey blabermouth to BACK. OFF.

If you prefer glasses, wear them! There is no reason for you to be uncomfortable. I could understand getting a new pair for the occasion, but not putting yourself throught the stress of learning to use contacts.

I wear both, contacts and glasses, and I chose to wear my contacts at the wedding.

But if you don’t normally wear them, there can be issues (like when you cry they can fall out) so if you are going to get them, do it ASAP and take some extras with you to the wedding in case of a mishap!

Good luck.
