14 Real Brides Who Wore Glasses on Their Wedding Day

And were an absolute vision!

Lola Rose Photography

We've all seen the ’90s rom coms positing that the only thing between a nerdy girl embracing unparalleled popularity and good looks are a pair of glasses. We also know that the correct response to this kind of thinking is—to borrow a phrase from the ’90s—"As if!"

Anybody who believes glasses can't be beautiful is the one who is actually visually impaired. And in celebration of all the smokin' hot spectacled babes out there, we've rounded up some inspiration pics for future brides planning to rock specs on their big day. As with any wedding day accessory, your bridal frames are a chance to express your distinct personality and style. See how these brides incorporated eyewear into their signature wedding looks, and follow the shopping links to cop a similar design.

You've got the future spouse, now go find your other perfect pair!
