I wore glasses on my wedding day too. They are such a big part of who I am. I couldn’t imagine wearing contacts on my wedding day, despite all the annoying “YOU CAN’T WEAR GLASSES ON YOUR WEDDING DAY” comments.

I can and I did!

somedaymrsj :  

I am SO TEMPTED to buy a pair of new glasses specifically for the wedding lol” .

Yes do it , well not only for the wedding  but just to  have another pair . I have heaps of pairs and one of them  is silvery and white   , especially to wear with white or pale  clothes.

Your black specs are great but do try some paler and/or brighter ones   too.

I’m pretty early in the planning process but I’ve been thinking about this a lot! I’ve only worn glasses for a couple of years and my vision isn’t THAT bad. The problem is I think I look a lot better with glasses on! I feel like my face looks weird without them now and the tortoise shell adds a little bit of style and personality.

I just don’t want it to be inauthentic or look like I’m not fully dressed up. But these pictures are beautiful! If I had been wearing glasses for longer and if I would need to wear contacts in order to function without them I would definitely wear the glasses at my wedding.

I am getting married next year and I have been thinking about this sooooo much! I even went to the doctor to get an eye exam for them. I do not feel confident without my glasses though! I just look weird and I hate it lol. Hopefully my glasses don’t get in the way of my lashes though because I love me some long lashes and I usually can’t wear them unless they are actual lash extensions.

I have been a fulltime glasses wearer for years, and have quite poor vision without them. 

I didn’t wear my glasses for the ceremony or main pictures, but put them on and off at the reception as needed.

My main issue was that I have 2 pairs, one black and white plastic, and one black metal raybans (the traditional style)  I felt like both pairs detracted from my formal outfit and hair/makeup. 

If I was going to wear them during the ceremony, I would have bought a pair that were gold or something, something dressy and minimalistic.

One of my friends, a long-time glasses wearer, wore contacts for the first part of her wedding day, but her eyes became seriously red and dry so she switched to glasses midway through and she looked even more amazing with them on, much more like herself, and she could enjoy the rest of her day in comfort. The best part was, her husband had matching glasses too so they looked utterly adorable. I think you should do it if that’s what makes you comfortable. You could even lean into the whole thing and have your mini-me cake-topper wear glasses too!
