There are those who say that your wedding day is for everyone but you. However, this is not the case. You know that you will only have one chance to make the impression you want. Everything must go well. It is a celebration; it is a day in which everything must go perfectly. This includes your eyeglasses.
If you are someone who cannot ditch your eyewear, if you must wear them no matter what, then you must take measures to ensure your glasses are in sync and are well in harmony with the rest of your wedding style.
Most brides would go with contacts for the wedding. For you, that is not an option. You may be someone who cannot or simply will not wear contacts. Or you may be one of a growing number of women who want to wear their pretty spectacles—or a pair of pretty spectacles—on the big day.
There are concrete steps you can take to ensure that all goes well.
When you go shopping for your wedding dress, take your glasses with you. This will allow you to see how you will look with your dress and accessories. It may help you decide on the dress. It may also help you decide to buy a new pair of glasses.
Check for reflection. One of the possible downsides of wearing glasses on your wedding day is that they may give off a reflective sheen. This can distort your wedding photos and the outcome of the video if you are having it recorded. You definitely want to have your photographer and videographer take a couple of shots with you wearing both your dress and your eyewear to ensure that all turns out the way you want it to.
The style of your glasses should match that of your wedding dress and overall theme. If you plan on going retro, your glasses should match that idea. If you intend to be more traditional, then you want to wear glasses that are more conservative and restrained. The point is to make your eyewear blend in with your overall ensemble.
Colours also matter. The colour of your lipstick and mascara must be taken into account. You don’t want to walk down the aisle with everything in complete confusion. You know, as every bride knows, that the individuals who will be watching you most closely will be other women. You don’t want to give them any grounds for criticism.
The most wonderful day of your life is approaching. It is a day for you to dress up and be at your best and your most beautiful. You are, however, determined to be natural—to be yourself. It is for this reason you have decided to wear your glasses at your wedding. Your task now is to ensure you are able to do so in style. When you look back at the moment, in photos and on video, you want to smile. You want to know that on that day you looked radiant and gorgeous, and that you were the best that day.
