As a bride or groom, your face is going to be in almost every picture taken at your wedding.

With dozens of different frames introduced to the market every month, there is no shortage of options.

Have a Backup Plan

If you need glasses or contact lenses make sure you bring a second pair on your big day. Anything can happen so make sure you'll be able to see clearly all day. From an overenthusiastic cake smash to losing a contact lens or dropping your glasses during your formal dance or portrait dip - accidents might happen.

Misplacing your glasses the morning of or having them crushed on the dance floor should not be a concern if you brought a spare pair in your wedding day emergency bag. You should also consider bringing things such as a sewing kit, deodorant, a stain remover pen, and a lint roller as these items can all be essentials to saving the day. Preparing for the unexpected is important so that even when life throws us challenging circumstances, you can act fast, stay on top of things, and still enjoy your special day.
