    I’m going to be wearing my glasses and will get a new pair with anti-glare lenses.  Contacts have never worked for me.  I think it’s really strange when you see someone in glasses always and then suddenly for their wedding they don’t have them, it’s like they don’t look like themselves.

    @allyfally:  This, totally! And I love your glasses =)

    When I was wedding planning I was shocked by the number of people who asked if I’d be wearing my glasses…I asked them if they’d ever seen me NOT wearing my glasses, which no one who knew me prior to the age of 7 has. I wanted to look like my best version of myself on my wedding day, but I really wouldn’t be myself without them. The way everyone just assumes brides get contacts really offends and rubs me the wrong way actually, because I am unable to wear contacts (they don’t make comfortable lenses with a strong enough prescription for my eyes) and I hate the assumption that there is something wrong or less beautiful or un-bridal about wearing glasses!

    Here’s our recap, it has a ton of glasses pictures of me!

    A Very Overdue Recap…(with pics!)

    @MonPetite:  Your reasons for wanting to wear your glasses sound legit. I would advise brides that don’t normally wear glasses or who wear those large trendy hipster style glasses because it’s cool (in some circles anyway) to not do it, though. Trendy things like hipster glasses will really date the look and many will look back and say ‘wtf was I thinking?’.

    If you’ve always worn glasses and you love them, then why not. But people like my sister, who wear contacts and then buy the big hipster frames to wear over top for a look (I just don’t get it) baffle me lol.

    Hey ladies, thank you for posting/sharing such beautiful pictures of brides with glasses.  I was on the fence before I saw this post, and now I’m definitely leaning towards wearing mine.

    I feel the same way you do about glasses.  I wore my glasses for my wedding.  I was undecided up until the moment my makeup was finished.  So many people asked if I was going to wear them and I started out replying yes of course, I wear them every single day of my life why whouldn’t I?  Then as more and more people asked I became unsure.  Finally once I had my makeup completed and put them on so I could see clearly again I knew I had to wear them.  Along with the ever important being able to see, they pulled my look together.  I wore a tea length dress and had other dark purple accents so my dark purple glasses were perfect.  

    I love the way they looked, and look, I bought them for a reason after all.  I have absolutely no regrets and I never will.  I’m not one of those people concerned with my wedding looking dated, it’s a reflection of who we were at the moment in time.

    So I say rock the glasses and never look back! Here’s a family pic of me and Dad. (Note the death grip I have on his poor arm.)

    I wore mine. Not wearing them was never even a consideration, for me or my husband. Two things underscored that: two of our dear friends chose not to wear them for their own wedding. They look lovely, but they don’t look like THEM in those pictures. Also, a bunch of my boudoirs are sans glasses. Again, I look great (if I do say so myself, haha), but I don’t look like I think of myself looking.

    I’ve worn glasses since I was five. They are a part of me. I don’t have “statement” eyewear like some of you all do, so they didn’t dominate or dictate my look. But I wore them, and I look like me (but prettier than usual), and it was totally fine.

    As an aside, I don’t really get it when people say wearing glasses in your wedding pictures will date them. In My Humble Opinion in twenty years everything is going to look dated – the dress, the hairstyles and makeup trends, what the guests are wearing, etc.
