I wear glasses, I never wear contact lenses as I just don't get on with them. My wedding isn't until October 2019 however the question I have been asked the most is whether I will wear them on my wedding day. Simple answer... Yes I want to see. Is this the right choice? I am pretty sure I will buy a new pair for the day, something that will perhaps match my outfit more. What are other brides in specs doing?
I only need mine for distance so I don't plan on wearing them on the day (unless my eyes get worse and I have to). Don't fancy contact lenses. X
Hi I will be wearing my glasses:)
I'm going to buy a new pair for my wedding next year x
I'll be doing the same as you! But also I'll make sure I'll want to wear them afterwards too! X
I was planning to wear my glasses, all the way up until the morning of the wedding. My make up artist finished my make up, and I took a look in the mirror and decided there and then not to wear them. I did not regret the decision at all! Things were a bit fuzzy, but I adapted and didn't notice after a while!
I have recently got glasses for driving and my wedding is also 2019 however I've had my glasses for less than 6 months and I am dependent on them not just for driving but for work too. In two years time I will be dependent on them to see so will have to wear them
If I don't wear mine, I will not be able to see very well. I contemplated not wearing them, however I realised that wouldn't be me.
I definitely will be getting a special pair for the day!
I wear mine all the time, I can see without them but can be a bit fuzzy but I've decided not to wear them. Will bring them with me for later on x
I flick between my glasses and contacts so I'll be wearing contacts. But as you don't treating your self to some new glasses sounds like a good idea. You'll want to remember your day being able to see it properly
I wore mine all day xx
I wear glasses everyday and can't see without them but I will be wearing contact lenses on my wedding day in 7 weeks. I've worn lenses for the last 4 years now so I am really used to them however it took me a while to get used to putting them in and especially taking them out. I would recommend trying them again. I prefer dailies to monthly ones as the daily ones are thinner x
I wore my glasses. Had thought about not, but as I wear them everyday I decided I'd probably struggle without them, and also cos I've worn them all my life, I'd not look right without them cos that's how everyone sees me
I have contacts but wear them pretty rarely. I plan to wear them for the most of the day but put my glasses on later. This is actually more because I find they make my eyes ache after a while. I think it's a matter of choice really. I wouldn't be able to go without anything as I am pretty blind! Specsavers do a really good free contact lenses trial if you fancy giving them a go though. I was impressed with the service.
I bought a new pair of specs for the day and sore them all day. Everyone knows me to wesr glasses and it would have looked odd if I wore contacts. Here's a pic from the day xx
It's annoying that the burning question about your wedding attire is are you getting contacts! I'm terribly short sighted and have to wear my glasses to see anything so I can't not wear them. I also have rugby shaped eyeballs so to get contacts would cost me a fortune. And lastly I want to look like me on my wedding day - my glasses included,
I've just bought some new ones that go with my dress and have a wee bit bling on them 🤣
I wear glasses but I don't like wearing them, so I really don't want to wear them on my wedding day. I'm hoping to attempt contacts well in advance in case they don't agree with me. If I don't get on with them then I'll go without both x
I was going to wear my glasses, I tend to feel really self concious and not myself without them, but my MUA recently used me as a model for a look she wanted to try and it made me realise that I really didn't want anything covering or hiding my eyes/make up... I never get myself dressed up or wear proper make up so I thought I'd give that time to shine instead 😂😂
I don't really understand why people are asking you that.. if you need glasses your not going to just go blind for the day 🤔
I have astigmatism and I had mine with me on the day but I only wore them when I needed to and/or when the photographer wasn't around. This meant no headaches but no glare from the lenses in the photos xx
I hated my glasses and couldn't afford a new pair equally I couldn't afford contact lenses so I got a weeks few trial and used those on the day :) I have always liked lenses though, for some people they just don't suit which is fair enough of you are happy and comfortable with your glasses then o DJ t see why you should go out of your comfort zone
I had to wear mine so I could see my groom
I didn't wear mine but used my daily contacts, it's your choice though obviously xx
I wore mine :-)
I had laser eye surgery 3 months ago get married next weekend...best thing iv ever done
I got new glasses in December (black frames) and didn't think about the wedding so got a paler frame for the wedding. Which worked out great. X
I wear glasses 24/7 I'm pretty blind distance wise without them, I'm getting married 2018 but in Oct 2016 I got contact lenses and was so determined to get used to them, it did take about 6 months but I love them now, I hated the thought of glasses on my wedding day esp if if rains/steams up and glare in pics! Also you pay to get make-up done and glasses just covers it if you're going to try lenses then do it well in advance! x
Wore glasses on my day, I'm very short sighted and fairly clumsy, that and wearing heals and if I didn't wear my glasses my view of my wedding would be the floor. I look like me. Xx
Definitely wearing contacts. I wear glasses day to day (if I feel like it) and wear contacts on a night out. Luckily for me, my mum works in an opticians. I'd recommend you go and see your optician.. they will be able to give you all sorts of free trials to see what will be most comfortable on the day x
I will be wearing my glasses. Blind as a bat without them and cannot have contacts as my eyes reacted badly to them last time and went all red and sore :/ I've worn them everyday for years and would not feel I looked myself without them and so I will be holding my head up high on the day wearing them :) x
I'm gonna wear my glasses but take them off for photos. The weddings going to cost enough without buying new glasses to match my dress and my regular ones are good enough. I don't wear contacts don't like the idea of something in my eyes.
I bought a pair of glasses that matched my other accessories. I wear glasses every other day, why should it be different for my wedding day?
My glasses are like part of my face and I didn't want to miss anything on the day xx
I wore my glasses - they're part of me and my now hubby says that (and i quote!) 'You look weird without them'
I wear glasses, I chose to wear contact lenses on my wedding as I have never liked wearing my glasses, i need them for everything so there was no way i could have gone with out as i wouldn't have been able to see anything - I started wearing them around a year before so it wasn't new and still wear them now 5 years later.
If you want to wear your glasses then do, its a nice idea to get a new pair for the day, if they are something you wear at all times then it should be no question as to whether you are going to wear them or not as they are a part of you! x
I'll wear my lenses but I'm used to them,and some people just can't adjust to them. Use your wedding as an opportunity to splash out on a pair of gorgeous designer frames (I used my 30th as an excuse for this). Everyone who knows you,knows you wear glasses so why would your wedding day be different?Look at Offbeat Bride for some confidence boosting pictures of brides in glasses but you'll look just as gorgeous with them as any bride without them
I didn't think of this in regards to my own wedding 🤔
I can't see things up close and need my glasses basically all day, every day, but only if reading, watching TV or using computers/smart phones as I have a focus problem.
However when I imagine my wedding look and what my wedding photos will look like, I've never once imagined me wearing my glasses! I probably will end up putting them in my little bridal bag and wearing them if I feel the need, but if I needed them to see distance and not upclose I would wear them for sure.
I like the idea of buying a pair of frames that suit the style for the day though, may just have to do that!
I hadn't even thought of that!!! Better go glasses shopping for something a little fancier than my everyday glasses!!! I can't wear contact lenses...tried before and they're just not for me!!!
I've worn glasses since I can remember so they are me. Without them I would have no hope lol. I wore mine on my wedding day as I look horrible without them x
I wear specs all the time so I didn't even think about it. I was always wearing them.
I plan on wearing mine, purely because I don't like the idea of contacts and I have never worn them before so everyone knows me with glasses. Also as I'm blind as a bat without them, I'm not actually sure what I look like without glasses. I might take them off for a few professional photos though so I have the best of both worlds and in case I don't like what I look like without glasses, I won't have a whole album full of photos I hate
I don't wear glasses but I do believe that you should still look like you for the wedding. Someone you recognise. And for someone who always wears glasses, people and yourself will probably recognise you better with them on. You can have a hair and make up trial and see what you look like with or without them on perhaps if you wanted? But I also have heard that getting used to contact may take some time so wouldn't be a great idea to start wearing them on your wedding day!
I'm short sighted and normally wear glasses all day. I'm going to wear contacts so I'm not squinting all day.
I'll be wearing mine as I can't see without them and I also don't use contact lenses.
I wore my glasses & the photo's are lovely xx
I dont want to wear contacts but i dont want to wear my glasses either. I'm short sighted so i'll probably just go blind for the day lol
Ive worn glasses since I was 10 and though I have contacts, I very rarely wear them. I bought a more delicate frame for the day and went with that! My husband wears glasses too and our photographer photoshopped any reflective glare on the lenses so it really wasn't a problem. I also don't think I look like me without them and wanted the photos to reflect us!
I do believe as I'm glasses wearer full time I won't look like myself without them. I want to look like me on my big day and certainly in photos looking back. I'm having a vintage 50s outfit so glasses to match
I personally will be wearing contact lenses on the day. But it's your own choice. Its going to be a very long day, so wear whatever you'd feel most comfortable in. Xx
I wear my glasses everyday but I will not be wearing them on my wedding day x
If I wore them full time then yes I'd wear them, I'd want to look like me! Case in point, I don't wear make up anymore and I won't on the day either.
I wore mine and nobody ever asked why I had. I'm not me without them. They are part of my face. No regrets.
100% wearing specs on the day, all day. I wear them all the time so I'd look weird without them. Why would you want to look so completely different on your wedding day?
I got asked the same question. Didn't need to think about it, I'm me with glasses and without it would look silly. I wasn't going to wear contacts for the day just to satisfy other people's vain idea. Mine remained firmly on (as did hubbys) x
I'm planning on having contacts for the day then change into my glasses in the evening tho will be getting a pair to match my dress
Il b wearing mine I'm not me wiv out them
Hadn't even occurred to me to not wear mine tbh..I think it's a nice idea to get a special pair for the day, but I'll probably just stick to my normal everyday ones!
I now wear glasses all the time. I used to always wear contacts but sight has deteriorated too much these days which means there's no longer a strong enough prescription for me. Gutted aa I really didn't want to wear my glasses on my wedding day but looking like I don't have much choice x
Wear your glasses!! You have to be you on your wedding day.
I still managed to wear fake eyelashes with my glasses too! It was the best decision!
I get married tomorrow and normally wear glasses.....about 12months ago I started wearing contacts. I put up with them until I got used to them
I wear contacts now and again and whenever i do i always get compliments of how pretty my eyes are. (They are mid blue with flecks of yellow)
I'm going to wear contacts for my big day (April 2018) but it whatever you feel comfortable with
I normally where glasses, but I wore contact lenses on the my wedding but that's because I can get on with them quite well. However I was a bridesmaid a few weeks ago and I wore my glasses. I think do what ever is best for you! I'm sure everyone is use to you having your glasses on. Xz
Maybe do a tryout most will do a free one then just cancel it that what I am doing
Definitely the right choice, you would not be you without your glasses, I wore mine to my wedding and that was 44 years ago, good luck and have a lovely day xxx
I don't wear glasses my maid of honour does my mother and my groom they will all be wearing contact lenses
I'm wearing mine, I didnt like contacts either. I too plan to buy some new ones for the day but I dont get why anyone would ask whether youre going to wear them or not? Of course you want to be able to see!!
I also hate the idea of contact lenses, and I can't manage without my glasses, but I'm going to try get used to contacts for my wedding day
Yes wear them! I don't get on with contacts either but I left my glasses behind in the mad rush the morning of our wedding and really regretted it all day! I also look really different in our photos because I'm never usually seen without them!
Me and my husband both wear glasses every day and so many people asked is the same question. I don't feel me without my glasses on and I just brought a new pair of the frames I already had so they were in better condition. Just make sure you feel comfortable and you'll look beautiful no matter what choice you make . Xxx
My h2b wears glasses, i think it would be weird if he didn't wear them on the day, it wouldn't look like him. Do whatevers going to be most comfortable for you x
I will be wearing me glasses 👓 I don't have a choice I can't wear contact lenses you will look lovely with them on there apart of you xx
I'm wearing my glasses as well for my wedding in November. I hate contacts. The way they feel and the way I look in them. I love my glasses. Will also be getting a new pair for the wedding
I wore my glasses. I wear them full time. I think it would have been strange if I didn't wear them.
When my brother got married he didn't was wear his (wearing glasses since 11) he didn't look like him. Do what makes you comfortable. Its you that will look back on your photos in years to come, nobody else. I would probably do what some of the others have said and go and buy a lovely new pair with a light frame,some are almost invisible these days. Hope you have a lovely day
I have to wear glasses all the time and can't wear contact lenses. I didn't want photos of me wearing them all the time so I had a little dolly bag to keep them in. I just wore them to read our promise, do our reading and when we gave out the presents so I could read the tags. It worked out well. X
I work in an opticians, when I was getting married I was asked the same thing a million times, I told everyone the same thing, I wear them all day everyday so why would I not want to look like me on my wedding day. I matched the colour of mines with my bridesmaids dresses x
I wear contacts with the same problem I pay £12 a month with Specsavers
I need my for distance, have worn them more and more in recent years, however went without on my wedding day last year x
I wore mine all day otherwise I couldn't see xx
I was never asked that. But i did wear mine as i didnt want the faff of contacts plus my glasses are part of who i am as i wear them all the time x
I'll be wearing my glasses I have zero intention of not wearing them as after all me in glass is the me my fiance fell in love with and I wouldn't change that. Plus I just don't look right without them haha
Glasses are part of what you look like, don't change just because its your wedding day :-)
I wore glasses, I got a nice silver pair as my usual pair is black though. I always wear glasses too never contacts, and my husband said I wouldn't look like me without them
I'm wearing my glasses I wear them everyday so why wouldnt I wear them on my wedding. Embrace who you are. Stop worrying what people will think be confident in who you are.
I'm getting married in 2019 too and having the same dilemma. I would like to wear contacts but unfortunately I cannot get them in my eyes I realise that sounds ridiculous but I have been to Specsavers at least 5 times to try. Not wearing my glasses makes my feel a bit sicky because everything is out of focus so if the contacts don't work out I'm going to wear them. I suit thick frames though...so might go for white or a colour to match the bridesmaids and make a statement of it. So glad other people are having the same thoughts lol. Xxx
My husband to be wears glasses and is wearing them on the day.. he won't look like him if he doesn't and I think it's the same if I was a glasses wearer, I'd want to look like myself xx
I wore mines all day, as I've worn glasses since I was 6. As well as needing them to see, I also felt I wouldn't look like me without them :)
Could you maybe take your glasses off for the photos?
I wore mine but went and picked a pair that worked better with my outfit and were a bit more understated than my normal bright green pair. Still looked like and felt like me, took them off for some pics but only because of glare x
