For those of you who are going to wear glasses on their wedding day, are you going to get new frames?
I get a new pair of glasses every couple years. I figure since I wear them on my face every day, I can justify the expense (plus mine get a little ratty after a while). I have had my current pair for about 1.5 years and I still like them, but I’m worried about how they might look in wedding pictures. For one, they almost always have glare in pictures with flash. Also, they are black frames which might be too stark for pictures. And unfortunately the nose pads leave marks on my nose (which you can’t really tell unless I take my glasses off).
I’ve worn glasses every day of my life since I was less than 3, so I’m going with glasses- I just don’t know if I should get a new pair!

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.

Thanks, ladies. I think I might at least go down and check out what’s available

@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.
