That’s silly.  You wear glasses every other day.  Why not on your wedding day?

If you wear glasses everyday that is you, be you! You can definitely wear glasses for your wedding, I’ve had many brides ‘pull it off’

I actually wore contacts…which I hate because I think glasses are distracting on a bride. I would do contact trials find something relatively comfortable.

jennymack89:  I didn’t wear my glasses at my wedding. I am fine for walking around, but certainly can’t see the TV clearly or read signs w/out them. I don’t wear contacts either, because I just could never get the hang of sticking my finger in my eye. I just knew I didn’t want to wear them on my wedding day, and I go without them enough that it didn’t look strange to see me without them.

jennymack89:  Yup! Think of your glasses as a personal accessory that makes you unique! I personally find brides in glasses adorable- I prefer a quirky bride vs airbrushed Barbie

Yes! I don’t think any kind of daily tool for a disability (including glasses for impaired vision) needs to be ‘pulled off’–you wouln’t dream of questioning whether a bride should wear her hearing aide or use her cain, or question whether those things were ‘bridal’ enough. Glasses are no different, but if it’s in your budget you could treat yourself to new frames 

Also I don’t know about you, but when I go without wearing glases for very long I usually have a horrible eye strain headache by the end of the day.

If your glasses are you then please wear them!! You don’t want to look back at photos in 5 years and remember how miserably itchy your eyes were (you need to work up to wearing contacts for long periods of time) or how bad your migraine was from not wearing glasses or whatever it may be. Be you! You however you are most comfortable is the perfect way to be a bride.

definitel wear them! I couldn’t imagine not wearing my glasses, they’re part of me and I actually feel awkward without them. Get some new ones, mabe something to go specifically with you dress if you like. I got slightly lighter/thinner frames than usual as a compromise but make a statement if you want!

I’m blind as a bat without glasses or contacts,  however,  I’ve been wearing contacts daily and glasses only in the late evening. My Darling Husband is also blind as a bat without frames,  he wore his glasses on our wedding day and was adorable. I say go for it!  If you wear glasses most of the time they became a part of your image,  and it would be weird for you not to wear them on your wedding day.  However,  treat yourself to a pair of high end expensive frames.  What the heck, you deserve them!

I feel like this is the setup of a sitcom plot. You don’t wear glasses for your wedding day and then kiss a fellow thinking he’s your fellow and then drama! And then resolution. Then wedding with glasses and self-acceptance. 

Maybe I watch too many sitcoms…

But also I feel like there are several ways to go. I like the look you posted with pretty intense statement glasses. You could also go with frameless glasses, if you wanted to minimize the noticability of the glasses compared to your other accessories.

I wear glasses as well! For my friend’s wedding that I was just in, I did not wear my glasses during the ceremony or for pictures. I have pretty thick black “statement” frames and I didn’t want to stick out from the rest of the bridesmaids. I did try contacts a few months prior, but I really didn’t like the feeling. The bride and groom also wear glasses. The groom wore his for most of the day, the bride didn’t put hers on until the reception. 

For my wedding I’m still on the fence. I can’t see about 2 to 3 feet in front of me without them, but some days I just really don’t like the way I look in glasses. I may try contacts again, maybe a new brand, so that I can possibly wear those on my day. 

I say it’s totally up to you, if you can find a hairstyle that makes you feel comfortable with wearing your glasses, Go For It! If not, and you’re not going to enjoy looking back at your pictures, and it’s really going to bother you, then don’t wear them.
