Glasses at wedding

Amidst this ongoing wedding season, couples are embracing diverse wedding themes and adding personal touches to create their perfect special day. Whether it's an elegant garden wedding or a vintage glamour theme, there are endless opportunities to cater to individual tastes and preferences. But how many go so far as to include the underestimated accessory of eyewear and the unique style glasses wearer can bring to the celebrations?

A pair of glasses can not only elevate your personal style but also make a statement on special occasions like weddings. So whether you have been invited to a wedding as a special guest or are soon to tie the knot, selecting the best frames to complement your attire will ensure you look nothing short of stunning on this special day.

How to Find Your Perfect Match

Similarly to finding the right person to spend the rest of your life with (or even finding the right person to invite to a wedding), choosing the ideal glasses frames for a wedding takes time and careful consideration. It is about finding a harmonious balance between elegance, fashion, and comfort. Some things to consider are:

  1. Complementing Your Attire: What is the theme of your (or your friends) big day? What are you planning on wearing and is the style of the wedding sophisticated and chic or more traditional? These are just some of the things to consider when looking for new frames. Remember, your glasses should complement your outfit rather than overpower it.

  2. Pay Attention to Detail: Adding subtle embellishments and unique design elements elevates your frames and makes them stand out. From delicate patterns to tasteful metallic accents, these details can add a touch of refinement to your overall look.

  3. Comfort is Key: A wedding day can be long, filled with various activities and moments of celebration. Make sure your chosen frames will remain comfortable throughout the day and won't make you feel uncomfortable during the festivities.

Classic and Timeless

Often featuring a traditional white colour palette and luxurious decor, the classic and timeless wedding theme exudes elegance and sophistication. A dress code that complements the grandeur of the occasion and appreciates timeless fashion with long, elegant evening gowns and formal suits with bowties in neutral or subdued colours is to be expected.

Collins in Gold

Round or oval-shaped frames with thin, gold or silver rims can add a vintage charm that complements the classic theme. Our Collins in Gold glasses are the perfect pair for timeless elegance.

Classic rectangular frames in black or tortoiseshell are also a safe yet stylish option for any gender. With our Calvin Klein 19718F-235 glasses, you will make sure to elevate your outfit.

Rustic and Bohemian

A rustic and bohemian wedding celebrates nature’s beauty with an outdoor venue and earthy, natural elements. Boho-chic aesthetics and a more carefree atmosphere allow guests to express their individuality and creativity. Flowy maxi dresses with floral prints, lace details, or earthy tones and linen or cotton suits in lighter colours offer the perfect choice for capturing the boho vibe.

Bold frames with warm earthy colours can align perfectly with the bohemian vibes. Our England Brown specs make sure you are staying within the wedding theme yet stand out on your own terms.

Sax in Crystal Grey

Transparent or lightly tinted frames offer a subtle, breezy look that blends seamlessly with the outdoor setting. The ideal choice for such a low-key wedding look is our Sax in Crystal Grey glasses.

Vintage Glamour

Inspired by the glamour and flair of bygone eras, vintage glamour weddings are usually all about grandeur, elaborate details, and old Hollywood charm. Guests are encouraged to dress in attire that reflects the refinement of vintage fashion. Glamorous and sophisticated dresses embellished with sequins or beading as well as a sleek back tuxedo with the extra touch of a pocket square or cufflinks make for an elegant vintage look.

Cat-eye frames with bold patterns or crystal embellishments add a touch of retro glamour. Our branded Police VPL628 0L93 specs embody unparallel vintage glamour for anyone trying to stand out on their special day. 

Ray Ban 6421

Another look that exudes vintage sophistication is browline frames in elegant colours such as brown and gold. Look no further than our Ray Ban 6421 to complete your look!

Modern Minimalism

Clean lines, simplicity, and contemporary aesthetics are what make a modern minimalist wedding. This theme often features monochromatic colour palettes and sleek, minimalist decor. To dress for such a wedding is to dress understated yet chic, focusing on clean and elegant looks. A neutral colour palette and clean, minimalist silhouettes are the key to fitting in.

Thin, rimless frames just like our Sycamore in Black glasses create a minimalist and almost "invisible" look that complements the theme perfectly.

Tommy in Gunmetal

For those who prefer subtle elegance, titanium frames in a matte finish offer a lightweight and refined option. With our Tommy in Gunmetal glasses, you will keep within the tone of minimalism while showing some contemporary twist.

Garden Chic


Garden party weddings celebrate the beauty of nature in a relaxed outdoor setting that exudes a romantic and whimsical atmosphere. With lush greenery and blossoming flowers reflecting the charm and beauty of the garden surroundings, the dress code is usually aligned with light, airy, and elegant attire. Flowy dresses with floral patterns and a lightweight and well-tailored suit in soft natural colours create an enhancing experience of a garden-inspired celebration.

Tortoiseshell frames in soft, earthy colours blend effortlessly with the natural surroundings, making our Jarrow - Green Stripe spec the perfect addition to your outfit.


To add a touch of playfulness to the overall look, semi-rimless frames with coloured accents like our Zira glasses are ideal for a more contemporary wedding look.
