You know those cheesy movies with the predictable outcomes?  I usually like those because I can rest my brain for a little bit.  This is a familiar scenario I’m sure: uptight young lady meets and falls in love with carefree scamp with heart of gold.  And in the movies, how do you always (I mean, always) know that the female is uptight?  She’s wearing glasses, of course, and probably has her hair in a tight bun.  She could be the class nerd, or the librarian, or even a teacher…but all she needs is a little attention from the previously mentioned carefree scamp and off with the glasses, shake that hair out of the bun baby!  Who knew there was a hottie underneath there?

So yesterday I asked The Mister to take a picture of me so that I could post it on the blog.  Actually, I didn’t ask…here’s how the convo went:

Me: Take a picture of me!

The Mister: Why?

Me:  I want to put a picture of my glasses on the blog. *trying my sexy librarian pose as he takes first pic*

The Mister: Why don’t you take your own pictures of your glasses?

Me: Because I want to be wearing them so I can show my sexy librarian pose.

The Mister: *laughing out loud because I said sexy and librarian together* Oookay.

Me: *trying not to laugh and hold on to my sexy librarian pose* Please hurry!

Then we both giggled a lot.

I’ve got two pairs of glasses that I wear, this is the orange one.

And this is the brown pair (it’s got green on there too)…a little more subtle:

I really like both pairs of glasses and I wear them most of the time.  But I ebb and flow with it, I’ll go through phases where I wear my contacts a lot too.  It’s just that now I’m out of contacts and hadn’t really thought about it until The Mister asked how come I didn’t wear my contacts anymore.  I told him I was out, but then I thought about what I planned on doing for the wedding.  I’d always planned on wearing my contacts, so I made an eye appointment so that I could get new ones.

Has anyone thought of wearing glasses for their wedding?  Glasses are pretty “me” right now, but what if I go on a contacts kick and have all of these wedding pics with me in glasses?  Do ladies ever wear glasses to their weddings?  Hmmm…I feel like I saw that that singer Lisa Loeb wore glasses at hers.  What do you think?

Sidenote: I still don’t chemically straighten my hair.  That ‘do is a bantu knot twistout…it’s great for after workouts and stuff.  Put the knots in at night and wake up with cute wavy hair.  YouTube it, there’s lots of videos out there.

    I pretty much wear contacts by day and glasses by night. I will wear glasses at home and to do errands but that’s about it. The thing with glasses and pics is that light reflects off of them. You might end up with 1/2 of your pics where you can’t even see your eyeballs! I think they make some glasses now with lenses that don’t reflect light-for a fee. Anyhow, I just wouldn’t want to take the chance and feel they may detract from everything else. Plus, I am not big on my glasses look!

      Yeah, I’m too cheap to buy those anti-reflection things. And I would hate to pay for a photographer and then can’t use a lot of the pics.

    I wear glasses and I was going to be blind on the big day because I don’t DO CONTACTS AT ALL. But my FI wants me to wear my glasses so I guess I will and I’ll have to work with the photographer.

    i’ve worn glasses since i was 7. i’m wearing them on my wedding day. i have anti reflective lenses and my photgrapher assures me that the lenses won’t be a problem. i’m keeping my fingers crossed!

  4. This was a MAJOR issue for me! Oh my goodness! I’ve been wearing glasses since I was 6 – I’ve never worn contacts! At first I figured I’d wear them, then that idea bothered me, then I wanted Lasik (but I’m broke as hell), thought of contacts (for the 3rd time in my life, but it just didnt work out as usual) then I was thinking of getting a less noticable frame (because mine are black)…but in the end what I did was walk down the aisle without glasses (thank god I had both my parents on each side because I can’t see ANYTHING without my glasses)…luckily the pastor told my husband to turn his back and that he couldn’t look at me until I was right behind him – which was perfect, because I was upset thinking that I wasn’t going to be able to see his first reaction, so that worked out fine.

    I had my glasses off for the ceremony and the portraits – but once the reception hit, I didn’t give a damn! I was there to party! So the photos of our first dance, dancing with my dad, cake cutting and all that – I’m rocking my glasses.

    I feel like they’re apart of me. I’ve always had em – I think I just started to feel self concious all of a sudden because some people were like “omg you can’t wear your glasses!”… but F it!
