How to Choose Wedding Sunglasses for the Bride & Groom

As the saying goes, if you’re looking to add a splash of something both “old and new” to your wedding attire, a new pair of classic shades covers both!

Since 1973, Randolph eyewear has been engineered with indestructible soldered joints and plating that’s five times the industry standard. Lucky for you, they are guaranteed to last a lifetime – or two – so you might even pass them down to your kids one day!

It’s also tough knowing how to choose men’s accessories for wedding attire. Thankfully, our eyewear is made to look great on both men and women. For bride and groom wedding day sunglasses, you just have two ways to choose your sunnies:

  1. You can choose the pair that looks best on you, and then buy a matching pair for your significant other. Remember that you can personalize your wedding sunglasses to match with initials, a last name or your wedding date.
  2. You can each choose a pair that fits your unique face shape.

For both genders of square or heart shaped faces, we recommend the trendy P3 style, which originated with submariners and accentuates your cheek bones. For both genders of oval or round faces, we recommend the classic Aviator style, for the unique bayonet temples designed to slip easily under a pilot’s helmet.

When you find the the best style to fit your unique face and personality, that’s when you achieve the perfect wedding look!

How to Choose Wedding Sunglasses for the Bridal Party

How can anyone look great in a wedding party? The secret is to share the same stunning smile as the bride, which is no problem when wearing Randolph eyewear.

When it comes to your gift to those participating in your wedding, brides-to-be can think ahead for pictures and give a wedding bridal party gift that will look great in the wedding photo album later. This way, you’ll not only give a gift that your party will appreciate on the day of the wedding, but it will also last a lifetime.

Traditionally, the bridesmaids’ and groomsmens’ gifts should cost about the same as the price of a wedding gift, and a pair of Randolph sunglasses for a wedding party fit right in. This is a great gift to match the wedding gifts for the men of the wedding party with the women.

The toughest challenge when choosing sunglasses for each member will come down to the style, plain and simple. You have three ways to choose:

  1. You can choose one style of sunglasses that you know you’ll look good in, and then order the same style for the rest of your party.
  2. You can choose one style of sunglasses for all the men, and then another style for all the women. Most Randolph sunglasses are gender neutral, such as the teardrop Concorde, but we also have feminine styles, such as the elegant Amelia, named after Amelia Earhart.
  3. Our favorite, you can guess the best fit for each member of your party. Take a look at our sunglasses fitting guide for choosing sunglasses based on the shape of each of their faces.

Don’t feel pressured to force a matching style for all members. If you really want to be sure, tell your bridal party about the gift and give everyone the opportunity to pick out their own pair – they’ll be glad and thrilled by the early surprise!

When you take pictures as a wedding party, you’ll look absolutely amazing! It also brings out the fun in everyone which makes for a great wedding photo.

How to Choose Wedding Sunglasses for the Party Favors

Sunglasses are great party favors that can fit into almost any wedding. All guests can proudly wear them together as a group, you’ll find colors that perfectly match the wedding’s colors and they make anyone photogenic for pictures. But when you pick out sunglasses as party favors, there are some warning signs to look for, especially if you’re buying online and in bulk.

While the frames on these glasses will be bright and colorful for a fun, summer style, it is the lenses that will really make them stand out. Try to avoid tacky styles, such as with barred “shutter shade” lenses or lenses that are covered by text. Engraving your sunglasses is a great way to make them feel special, and you can personalize them with the bride and groom’s new shared name, but you don’t want to prevent your guests from enjoying the party either with a cumbersome style.

Look for mirrored or reflective lenses that will show your guests each other’s smiling faces throughout your wedding day. Or, choose lenses that have a slight hue to them to compliment the colors in your wedding.

Keep in mind, weddings are all about respecting your heritage as you combine two families into one, but also the freedom to make a future based on your unique love. A pair of built-to-last Randolphs are a much better fit for this day of your life than a flimsy plastic pair, and will be worth keeping to cherish the memory. They are a great gift for each other for the wedding day, for photos and for the rest of your lives. You can even personalize them with the date of the wedding so to cherish the matching pairs every anniversary.
