When it comes to choosing your dream wedding day ensemble, opt to embrace the often overlooked accessory—sunglasses. Ideal for a plethora of events, from a sunset rehearsal dinner to a high glamour reception exit, consider bridal sunglasses an actual embodiment of the adage, “but you can wear it again."

The nature of the accessory lends itself to every bridal aesthetic imaginable. Are you a hopeless romantic floating in a sea of taffeta? Embrace your rose-colored nature with blush frames. Looking to wear a suit and stilettos? Try a classic Wayfarer shape to drive home the look, just like Hailey Bieber on the Met Gala red carpet this year. 

To give you a sense of the variety of options available, here are some of our favorite sunglasses for brides, bridal parties, and guests.
