Brides in Glasses

Have you ever seen a bespectacled bride in a bridal magazine? In fact, they’re pretty darn difficult to find in the blogosphere too. Grooms on the other hand? They’re all over the place. (My husband was one of them.)

Some brides wouldn’t think of wearing  glasses on their wedding day, instead opting for contacts.

But there are brides who wear glasses on their wedding day! For many of these brides, glasses are part of their identity. Some describe feeling ‘naked’ without them. Many of these brides purchase a special pair of glasses just for their wedding day.

I’ve rounded up some photos of brides wearing glasses.

Will you be one of them?

    As a spec wearer myself, it's nice to see this. I wish that magazines showed more bespectacled girls in general actually!

    @Paula - hear hear, I wear glasses and love them and so do loads of girls i know, but it's never reflected in mags or pics.

    Well done Christina for highlighting beautiful speccy brides :)

    I want to thank you for this post. I'm getting married this summer, and even though I've never worn contacts, I had begun to battle with the thought of getting them for the wedding. Your post here brought me back to my senses. I am who I am.
