If glasses are a big part of your look, don’t ditch them when it comes to your special day. When walking down the aisle, the most important thing for a bride to keep in mind is to look like YOU! There’s no need to make any drastic alterations to your appearance and that means incorporating your everyday accessories, including glasses. Check out some beautiful bespectacled brides, and read our top tips for rocking eyewear in your wedding dress.
***You may be experiencing some hesitation about wearing your glasses on your wedding day. If you wear glasses every day, then it stands to reason that you should keep them on during your wedding. Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day and this is the perfect opportunity to express yourself and your signature style. Make them a part of your wedding ensemble by choosing a pair that goes great with your dress.*** Besides looking good, if you can’t see without them you could opt for contact lenses. Some brides choose this option as an alternative, but the choice comes down to your comfort. Will you be comfortable wearing them all day long? If you’re not used to them they can be uncomfortable, irritating your eyes and making them water. That is a consideration if you choose not to wear glasses. On your special day, you should be glamorous, be confident, and be “you”. Check out these beautiful bespectacled brides, and read our top tips for rocking eyewear in your wedding dress. Here are a few tips to keep in mind if you plan on rocking your glasses on your wedding day:

5 Tips to Wearing Glasses on Your Wedding Day!

1. Take them shopping with you
You want to get the full picture when you say, 'YES!' to the dress. Bringing along your glasses for the shopping process is important so that you get the full look. Your glasses should complement your dress and vice versa. So, make sure you have your glasses on when you try your dress on!

2. Let your photographer know!
This will be helpful when they are considering how the light will reflect in the flash throughout the day. They may be able to adjust the lighting or use filters to prevent glare in the photos. It helps too if your glasses have a non-reflective coating. Bonus: If you have an engagement shoot included as part of your practice, bringing your glasses along will help you be comfortable with wearing them in front of the camera as you pose

3. Keep it simple + natural
Yes, glasses draw attention to your beautiful eyes, but they can also compete with your eye makeup. You’ve probably found a few great makeup tips that go along with your spectacles and this advice is for brides with or without frames. When selecting your day-of look, make sure that you keep in mind there will probably be a few happy tears (hint: waterproof mascara) so you want it to look fresh and natural. And keep a few tissues on hand.

4. Accessorize accordingly
Your glasses are part of your whole look. So make sure they don’t clash with your jewelry, veil or other accessories. Plus, adding some sparkle to your wedding day look will take them from drab to fab! You might opt for a pair of sparkly earrings in the same tone as your frames and a simple bracelet. Keep it simple, but elegant.

5. Don’t forget about your brows
Brows have made a big comeback in the past few years and it’s important not to forget about them when you’re wearing your glasses. It’s easy to overlook them when applying makeup. Get them shaped the week before your wedding and make sure that your makeup artist knows that it’s important to you when you do your makeup trial before the wedding. Your brows are what makes your face, believe it or not.
