Say “Yes” To Glasses On Your Wedding Day

If you’re questioning wearing glasses on your special day, we get it. There’s a lot to consider when considering your wedding apparel. Allow us to open your eyes as to how opting into your optical instrument can help you perfect your wedding “look.”

Allow us to answer your question with some questions of our own.

Have you worn glasses for quite some time?
If wearing glasses feels linked to your DNA, why depart from something so crucial to your personal style on one of the most important days of your life? Rather than abandoning what you know and love, shift your focus to finding glasses that complement your wedding garb. Be seen for you who you are (and, thanks to your glasses, admire others seeing you, too).

Do you experience headaches when you don’t wear your glasses?
Many people do! It’s a symptom of our eyes saying, “Hey, we’re not used to this.” The last thing you want to be thinking about is during your reception is where the ibuprofen is stashed or why the music is playing so damn loudly.

Do people tell you how different you look without your glasses?
We presume you’d rather avoid confusing the guests with your slightly unfamiliar appearance on the big day, yes? You also run the risk of not being recognized by your betrothed without your glasses. Or worse, there’s a fair chance you might not recognize them! (We’ll give you a moment to laugh.) In all seriousness, feeling like yourself on your wedding day is right up there on the list of priorities with having your something borrowed.

Glasses vs Lenses for Weddings

Glasses vs Lenses for Weddings

Feeling comfortable and confident is key for a blissful affair. If you’re a complete newcomer to the world of contact lenses, they may irritate your eyes and be a frequent nuisance. Unless you’re committed to practicing wearing contact lenses for weeks before your wedding, we recommend you stick to spectacles.
Glasses are also the preferable option if you’re likely to shed a tear or two at your wedding. Becoming emotional during the ceremony, thoroughly embarrassed during a family member’s longwinded speech, or getting a slight allergic reaction to your auntie’s perfume – wherever the tears may come from, you’re safe to give your eye a subtle rub if you’re wearing glasses rather than contacts.

What Glasses Should I Wear on my Wedding Day?

So you’ve made the call: You’re getting married in your new glasses. Firstly, huzzah to you. Next, allow us to help you decide what optical doodads to don on your face.

May you be so bold
Orchestrating a dream wedding outfit means you can consider frames that are a far cry from your “everyday” or “ordinary.” By selecting a truly show-stopping pair of wedding day glasses, you’re awarded another opportunity for all eyes to stay fixed on you. Should you choose a unique pair from the eyebobs’ hall of frames, we can practically guarantee that’s going to be the case.

See your theme through
Exceptionally eye-catching wedding day frames can not only accentuate your make-up, hair, dress, tie, or pocket square, but they can also act as an extension of your dream wedding theme. For example, let’s say you’ve settled on pink as the leading color for your wedding. Take the opportunity to choose a stylish frame in a rosy shade to add the emphasis guests didn’t know they needed.


Even without a curated color palette, glasses-wearing brides can still afford themselves a truly picture-perfect moment by matching their bouquet to their frames or bold lipstick. Is your wedding inspired by the glamour of bygone eras? Highlight that by selecting glasses that spell out “I’m hopelessly stuck in the past!” from afar. The specs you decide to have your eyes twinkle behind on your wedding day can even act as your something blue.

Embrace “barely there”
Should you decide that on your wedding day you’d rather your frames didn’t detract from your dress, earrings or suit, we advise you to peruse the collections of transparent frames. That way your vision will remain crystal clear, and your frames won’t steal the limelight.


The frame you select for your wedding day can also become a natural extension of your wedding jewelry collection. Those metallic frames you’ve had on your mind for a while might be the perfect option on this occasion. A bold, sparkling-esque frame will help signify that your wedding day is very special indeed.

Can I Wear Glasses With my Wedding Dress?

Brides with glasses have to decide sooner rather than later whether to wear their glasses on the big day. If the answer is a gleeful yes (and it really should be), remember to have your frames accompany you to all your dress shopping escapades.


Whether you’re taking care of your hair and make-up, asking a friend to do it, or hiring a professional, let all parties involved know that you’re going to wear glasses. That way, your esteemed styling team can ensure any headbands, veils, and make up work in perfect harmony alongside your eyewear.

"Unless this frame gets discontinued I will keep ordering year after year! I knew I needed a new pair of my beloved tortoise frames for our wedding last month. I get compliments ALL THE TIME from strangers on this frame. It's the perfect combo of classic + stylish. My face is small, but rounder, and I have such a hard time finding frames. This fit is flawless. I've had 30+ pairs of glasses in my life and this is by far the easiest ordering process."

Tips for Glare-Free Wedding Photos

Tips for Glare-Free Wedding Photos

Bespectacled brides and grooms understandably worry that glasses glare will steal the spotlight in their wedding photos. Fortunately, there are a few tips and tricks you can implement on and before your wedding day to prevent this from becoming a reality. First, look into hiring a photographer skilled at shooting people who wear glasses. Choosing the right angles and lighting works miracles for ensuring unsightly glare doesn’t make an appearance.


You can prevent reflections in your photos by slightly tilting the back end of your glasses’ earpiece up. Doing this shifts the plane of your glasses and stops the light from reflecting directly of them.


You should also consider non-reflective lenses. Lucky for you, we offer many anti-reflective lenses. If you’re lucky enough to be getting married on a beautiful, sunny day, non-reflective lenses will be a huge help to both the camera and the photographer.

By being prepared, bespectacled brides and grooms can enjoy seeing and being seen . We are brimming with stylish frames that will ensure your wedding is a fairytale come to life – in high definition. Thanks to our easy exchanges and 90-day return policy, finding new glasses you’re going to have, hold, love, and cherish is a walk in the park – or down the aisle.
