The memory of my proposal is fairly recent, and I remember the moment that solitaire was slipped on my finger when I said “yes’’ so clearly.
From that moment onwards, all I had been thinking of was having the perfect wedding. From the invitations to the food, to the arrangement and decorations, not to forget having that impeccable wedding dress and makeup! Unless you are a prescription glass wearer like me, then getting the right pair can make or break your entire wedding look.
Personally, I have never been comfortable in contacts and no thank you, I would not have had something jutted in my eye even for a few hours! So that left me with my regular glasses, black- over sized and acetate. Um mm, not quite right for the fairy white! Which meant, getting a new pair of prescription glasses for the big day was number one on my wedding checklist.
I am fairly cocky when it comes to details, everything needs to be perfect to the T- which made it a living nightmare for all my bridesmaids! Especially when you hate shopping at brick and mortar stores.They are exhausting, need a lot of time and the sales staff just hovers around you all the time.
I was getting the jitters as my big day was approaching, when my fiance, Aaron who also wears glasses, ( Yeah, cute I know!) with a lot of effort and patience took me on to shopping online. Oh my god, so much of advance digitally, that most of my wedding preps, including the caterer, the cake and venue was done and dusted online. Just took one physical meeting to finalize and I was done with the big things.
When I spoke to him about the spectacles on the big day and how worried I was getting the right pair, he confidently told me to check out Optically.ca, one of the best websites in Canada for buying branded, affordable and trustworthy eyeglasses and sunglasses. And for the love, so I did and boy did it amaze me!
Optically.ca houses designer labels like Gucci, Marc Jacobs, Carrera, Jimmy Choo, Polaroid, Fendi, Hugo Boss, Oxydo and many more that too at incredible prices and offers for both women’s and mens glasses. The website has thousands of online glasses in shapes and colors that you can only imagine. The easy filters can help you search by the frame size, material, color, shape, frame and lens type.
While I was boggled at the array of options, the Virtual Try On feature was brilliant, all I had to do was upload my close-up picture, resize it and see how the frames looked on me virtually. Oh!what a savior that was, no walking, no talking just the experience of variety, all in silence- surely did take off some heat of the wedding.
Being particular, meant making sure that the glasses fit right and matched my wedding dress in elegance. The product descriptions are detailed, with measurements for each frame that made me better informed while I browsed. The user friendly website, made me virtually try on styles I would not have experimented with physically, even in sunglasses but made me realize that they do actually look good! A quick run through let me finalize four pairs that I would love to style at my wedding and after I annoyed Aaron and my bridesmaid to pick one to finalize, I was left just as confused as everyone loved them all.
First, I thought the Safilo SA6014, clear cat-eye in metal, was a simple yet fun match, then it was Habourlife Grento, a full rimmed frame of faint tortoise shell in perfect round that caught my attention, thirdly Benetton BSBS008V I3 had me click on buy straight up in its two tone gradient to accentuate my earthy complexion and then it was the flirty Lactose L2791 466, in deep cat-eye with a electric blue texture that was sure the muse the hidden diva in me. All were unique in their shape, texture and design, and all of them definitely would perfectly craft my wedding pictures!
I did not settle on the conventional clear or plain, I wanted my wedding to reflect my personality, and you should think of it that way too. After all more than the face type its you who will be wearing them, right? So long as you are confident, looking great will just come naturally.
I sat put on Benetton, as it made me virtually comfortable and sexy, ordered them right away. They came in a a 1.56 index prescription lens, free scratch resistant coating and a case with microfiber cloth for cleaning.
I was so happy with my purchase, that I hopped right back on to buy prescription sunnies for my honeymoon. Well not that I don’t have any, but the service, quality and pocket friendly variety in women’s glasses made me want to get another one, because it was a special month!
Optically.ca is surely the far best site for prescription sunglasses because apart from the frame styles, you get to customize your lens options, by selecting the tint, gradient and prescription. You can get them mirrored or polarized, and you can also select any prescription glasses pair to get made into sunglasses! Awesome, isn’t it?
Well let me confess, I was so happy with my prescription glasses that I got myself two prescription sunglasses. My wedding was perfect to the T like I imagined and Aaron loved that I tried a new shape, he was floored! Our honeymoon in Aruba, let me flaunt my sunnies and shorts, and I couldn’t have imagined shopping being so convenient yet flattering.
So for all you to be brides and bridesmaid, if you wear glasses make sure to get yours online at Optically.ca and experience easy shopping right from your couch comfortably! For grooms and best men, if you are looking to revamp your regulars, give trendy frames a Virtual Try On, and you will be surprised by how hooked on this website keeps you.
