I’ve been pondering on whether I should wear my glasses that I ALWAYS wear on my big day or wear my contacts. My fiance said he doesn’t want me to look TOO different. That he likes me in my glasses. When I do actually wear my contacts it seems to be only so I can wear my sunglasses. I’m not entirely comfortable without them (security blanket?) and if I do start the day without them, I know I will def end the day with them. Just not sure for photography sake if its logical. Or if its silly to wear them at all. *sigh*

@Odess: It depends on how much your glasses define you, if that makes any sense. Like, if you look very different without glasses, then you should probably wear them. I have a friend that consider his glasses to be a part of him. If you’re like that, then you should wear them. BUT, I’m slightly concerned about the glare on the lens in pictures though. For pictures, my friend actually puts on frames without lenses just so he can have glasses on in his pictures but not worry about the glare.

I wear glasses too. I have since I was 13 and I will definitely be wearing them when I get married. I feel like they are a part of me after so long. Lol. I don’t feel comfortable not wearing them. They’re just….”ME!” My Fiance also likes my glasses and if I asked him I’m sure he’d tell me he’d want me to wear them. I have had people tell me before though to not wear them when I dress up (high school prom, haha) but I’ve always worn them. I think you should do what’s going to make you most comfortable!

I’ll definitely be wearing my glasses. I feel like I look hideous without them. Plus, I’ve been wearing them since I was 6 years old and I’ve never worn contacts, so I wouldn’t look like myself without them. If your glasses are a major part of you, then wear them!

I wear glasses and contacts, but rarely my contacts on a day to day basis. I also only really wear them when I specifically want to wear sunglasses. However, for the wedding, I did wear them. I couldn’t really imagine wearing my glasses and being all dolled up – like it would feel weird not to pop my contacts in for that. I do agree about the glare, but you could also take them off for a few shots if you wanted and still wear them for the majority of the day.

@Odess: I wear glasses as well…since I was 2!!! Glasses have always been part of my life and are part of me. However, I decided not to wear my glasses on my wedding because I never take formal pictures with my glasses. I don’t believe that if I don’t wear my glasses I would look too different because Fiance has seen me without wearing my glasses at times and it doesn’t take away from who I am. I will be ordering contacts a few months before the wedding.

I will be wearing my glasses. I have worn glasses since I was 8 and never wear contacts. Seems silly just to do it for one day, and I don’t feel like I would look like “me” without my glasses!

I planned on wearing my glasses throughout my whole wedding. I’ve worn them most of my life, so why not? However, I completely forgot them just before walking down the aisle! So my pictures ended up a mix of with and without – ceremony without, reception with. 🙂

Dont wear them, I ALWAYS wear mine, every day, but for my wedding I did not, I wore contacts (currently I wear contacts about 4-5 times a year and only for very special events).
Whenever anyone looks at my photos, they always say, WOW you look amazing, then kind of ponder and always say, I look so different and amzing because I did not have my glasses on.
Glasses are nice, and a part of you, but on your wedding day you should look and feel like a princess and its so nice to be special for a day.

I’m going for my glasses. I asked my partner and he says it’s up to me (but when presssed, he expresses preference for my glasses – he says it’s how he met me and what he sees me wearing most). I plan to do some shots without glasses (one of my brdesmaids is planning to have my glasses case in her purse). Do you own prescription sunglasses? Would that be an option? I have a pair (and am thinking of going the online route for another pair) and they come in very handy.

I don’t wear glasses but I think wearing them may look “dated” in a few years, because the styles change so much with frames. Maybe just take them off for some formal photos if you want to wear them all day.

Thanks for the advice. I think what will happen is I will start the day with my contacts, take pics (one in sunglasses!) and then end the day with my glasses. It always happens. 🙂
