If you can afford it, I would. It’s a special day and that’s just another (albiet expensive) accessory. Also, I would talk to your doctor (or do an online search) about what kinds of frames/lenses photograph the best. When I had black frames it frequently looked like a was wearing sunglasses when I wasn’t, and another pair that always glared in the camera’s flash and if I were you i’d want to make sure that wouldn’t be a problem in my wedding pictures. I wear contacts for special occasions, but if you don’t, that’s what i would suggest.

You can get antiglare glasses which when a picture is taken especailly with flash you don’t get the glare.  I wear contacts but all my glasses in fact just picked up my new pair of glasses yesterday have antiglare glass in them

I don’t think I personally would get a new pair just because I’m getting married. I might get new ones a month or two before the wedding just to get used to them on me. I think that with everything looking so different about you on your wedding day, it’s nice to keep something familiar in the mix.

I want to look like me on those pictures. A dolled up, pretty version of me. But me all the same.

I am considering wearing mine, but I am still undecided. I have the same concerns as you, but I get a ton of complements when I do wear them, so I don’t know. I have an appointment with our photographer next week, so I will ask them what they think. Here is a picture of mine.

@noritake22: Wow, your glasses actually look kind of bridal!

@PinkBubbleGum: If you get a new pair to you plan to wear them for the first time at the wedding? I would want to wear them for a weekish beforehand so that everyone gets used to you in them. I know that when I change glasses it takes awhile before I am “me” again. I hope that makes sense. You want people to be looking at you, not the new glasses.
