If you tell your doctor they may give you free contact samples in the right prescription

I live in my glasses too but I am wearing contacts that day. Budget it into your attire budget. And it isn’t just for one day. I use the 2 week ones. I get a 6 month pack I cam streach for a year

Same issue here. Went to lenscrafters and got a 140 eye exam that comes with contacts that are good for two weeks 🙂

I’ve seen some places that do contact fittings for very cheap. Some of the walmart vision centers had cheap prices if I remember correctly. You can have the appointment to get the proper perscription & just buy one or two boxes, that way you don’t have to spend a lot. If you don’t wear them often, you can make a couple boxes last quite a while.

Your contacts Rx will 100% be different from your glasses because your glasses sit a few inches away from your eyeball and your contacts sit directly on top of it.  You’re going to need to go get a new Rx – but if you just got one for your glasses, maybe you can go back and ask them to do just the contacts portion and see if they can give you a deal on it and then just order like 1 box of daily wear or something – so you can try them out a few times before your wedding day.  I would recommend the daily disposable ones.  They’re least likely to be annoying.  I used to wear glasses/contacts (since I was 9 until about 25 when I got lasik). 

Or you could always just get lasik before your wedding 🙂
