Bridal Eyewear: Style Tips for the Ultimate Wedding Accessory
As wedding photographers, we’ve been exposed to a vast array of wedding trends, many of which have come and gone. But if you’re looking for timeless ways to make your wedding stand out, here’s one: couples who choose the right eyewear accessory often have the most memorable and beautiful photos – after all, your eyes are the focal point of your face, it’s what emotive photography is all about!
Eyewear can be a fabulous way to make a fashion statement that reflects your personal style on your special day and can add a little spice to your overall look. In this article, we’ll be going over some style tips on how to look and feel your best on your special day using bridal eyewear.
Match your bridal eyewear to your dress
Whether you’re a day-to-day glasses wearer or you simply want to add a chic edge to your wedding day look, it’s a good idea to match your dress to your eyewear. Accessories can often make or break your outfit, so here are some suggestions.
Planning a June wedding a la Hollywood sweetheart Alexandra Daddario, who stunned in her Danielle Frankel pleated silk gown? Top off the look with something sleek and vintage like Versace’s Biggie frames. If you’ll be walking down the aisle in a silhouette similar to Nicola Peltz-Beckham’s Valentino gown, opt for subtle eyewear like Prada’s Catwalk frames.
Select something unique
Accessorising your bridal look with eyewear is an opportunity to flaunt your personality. Brides looking to exude a sweet, romantic vibe can opt for styles like Eyebuydirect’s Nebulous frames in Clear Brown. More fashion-forward brides can choose eyewear in bolder styles similar to Burberry’s Vanessa sunglasses.
In the case of couples wanting a stronger, sportier look, Oakley’s range of eyeglasses are famous for being designed with performance in mind. They recently collaborated with football superstar Kylian Mbappé and came out with an eye-catching collection, including one with geometric arms called the Kylian Mbappé Signature Series HSTN, that can make your photos look quirky and exciting.
Wear his and hers frames
Choosing matching eyewear for the bride and groom will make for darling photos. Capture your wedding’s dreamy energy during your photography session with matching elegant frames like Ray-Ban’s Aviator Optics. However, if you and your husband-to-be are not glasses wearers, you can instead choose matching sunglasses. Emulate celebrity couples like Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck or newlyweds Cole and Barbara Sprouse with Hollywood staples like the New Wayfarer Classics.
Get your wedding party involved in the fun
Weddings are a celebration of the bride and groom. However, your lovingly selected wedding party should also be able to look and feel their best. Take notes from fashion icon and supermodel Kendall Jenner, who is often spotted wearing minimal yet cool frames. Have your bridesmaids don timeless sunglasses like the Round Metal frames from Ray-Ban. Meanwhile, the groomsmen are sure to look dashing in Clubmaster Classics, also by Ray-Ban.
There are so many cute and memorable ways to set your wedding apart. Accessorising with fashionable eyewear is not only trendy, but it’s a practical memorabilia for you to have and to hold even when the festivities are over.
