Sure, I mean, everyone will be expecting me to walk down the aisle in a white dress. And they know I'm going to wear glasses… but purple cat-eye frames? WHAT?! That's crazy style right there. Reply New wedding glasses was totally one of my big suggestions in my very first post EVAR about brides in glasses: http://offbeatbride.com/2008/01/brides-in-glasses 🙂 1 agrees Reply I really don't care too much about my dress, but GLASSES… I'm totally skimping on the dress budget so I can finally justify buying some awesome glasses (that I probably won't be able to wear to work 😉 ) 2 agree Reply I'm a glasses freak. I currently have over 10 pairs. My go to place is zennioptical.com. They have sales sometimes too. prices start at ~$7! for prescription! Reply i love clearly contacts got my every day pair for $27. im not sure if i am going to wear my glasses or not, i have a weak prescription but if i do wear them ill get new ones as my every day are very thick black exaggerated cats eye dont quit go with my 1940s look Reply These fuchsia glasses are actually my everyday pair. 🙂 I like color, clearly! 1 agrees Reply I will be getting new glasses, I will be wearing a new dress and shoes so seems silly to me not to get knew glasses to. Plus my current glasses are thick rimmed geekery so it would be nice to have something that shows off my eyes a bit better. Hopefully its the one thing I can keep from my FH as I keep talking about the dress in front of him. 🙂 I will probably go to Dead Mens Spex for them. Can beat a bit of original 50's stylin'. http://www.deadmensspex.com/default/vintage-spectacles-by-gender/ladies-vintage-spectacles/1950s-fancy-spectacles-cats-eye-t34.html http://www.deadmensspex.com/default/vintage-spectacles-by-gender/ladies-vintage-spectacles/vintage-white-cats-eye-spectacles-t29.html http://www.deadmensspex.com/default/vintage-spectacles-by-gender/ladies-vintage-spectacles/1950s-style-spectacles-stock3.html Now just to decide which ones. Funny I have no problems looking at white glasses but looking at white wedding dresses makes me feel slightly ill. lol Reply Having been an optician it seemed white frames didn't work so well unless the young lady had light blonde hair. The darker the hair color the more the white frames clashed. So if happen to be a light blonde white glasses should work very well for you.
