Sunglasses during the Ceremony

Recommended Posts

I am beyond dependent on sunglasses. Cloudy, rainy days (not that I know what those are or anything living in AZ) sunny, dusk doesn't matter they don't come off my face until it is literally dark out. I am super worried about having squinty eyes in all of pictures if I don't wear them, but I also don't want to be wearing them during the ceremony. Has anyone else had this problem or are concerned about it? Any suggestions? FI swears he is wearing them during the ceremony, but I think it will tacky. Personally, I think it is also a ploy to cover up his tears msnwink.gif

I'm the same way with sunglasses. I'm really sensitive to light especially after having had laser eye surgery... but I definitely won't be wearing sunglasses for the ceremony nor will FI.... I would rather have a few shots with squinty eyes than with sunglasses and I'm sure you'll still get lots of great non squinty eye shots... IMO it would look better w/o sunglasses :)

i'm worried about it this as well. I am addicted to my sunglasses, i feel like everything is too bright otherwise. I have thought about this, but i know I will just have to deal with it. But the good thing is my FI NEVER wears sunglasses, even when its really bright out, even at the beach. So I guess i can just make him face the sun. I am also thinking about getting married during sunset rather than right before.

Totally know what you mean. I love my sunglasses!!! We're getting married aound 4:30pm so the sun will be out, but I am hoping that since we are getting married underneath a hupah-like structure we will be a little protected. Crossing my fingers....

I am also worried about squinty eyes. Supposedly very light eyes are very sensitive to the light and sometimes I can't open my eyes in the sunshine! But we def won't be wearing sunglasses for the ceremony. But probably will have a paid close by and in my purse.

 

I will jsut make sure that the sun is behind me! Hahahaaa

We are definitely wearing them for some of the pictures. That's just us...you never see us without them, people probably wouldn't recognize us without them.

I really like the idea of having the bridal party wear them too, never thought of that.

Do you think you would have not liked your pictures b/c of the sunglass. Or would have been a damned if you damed if you don't situation?

exactly - it was a lose-lose situation!
looking at the pics of the bridal party w/ their sunglasses on makes me feel like the ceremony was more authentically beachy, if you know what i mean....i can't think of another way to describe it...

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
