Mr. Big is handsome. He’s cute, charming, and absolutely a-dork-able (I might be biased). He’s also never without two things: his spectacles and his beard.
When I first met Mr. Big, he was beardless and he had what are typically known as “rimless” glasses.
Over the years, his glasses have stayed more or less the same, but in most of our photos together, he has a beard in some form or another:
Mr. Big’s had glasses for most, if not all, of his life, and he started wearing a beard since he entered the corporate world at a young age, where his age held more weight than his intelligence. So it only made sense that he will have a beard and glasses for the wedding.
In the wedding world, beards seems to be picking up. Long gone is the clean-shaven individual, with the “Dawn of the Beard” having well and truly risen over the horizon:
Personally, I LOVE the beard on Mr. Big.
Mr. Big’s beard completes his look, and I’d like our wedding selves to be a reflection of our real-life selves, just more polished and presentable. So I’d be completely happy with Mr. Big sporting the beard, and it’s safe to say that he WILL be wearing it when we get married. He even wants to get a hot shave to get it looking schmick.
The other part of his look which must be a part of the wedding are Mr. Big’s glasses.
Mr. Big needs his glasses to see, as his vision isn’t exactly great. However, as Mr. Big wears his glasses pretty much all the time apart from sleeping, he’s got Transitions lenses, which basically means they go dark in the sunlight. It makes it much easier for him to drive and generally go about life as he doesn’t particularly need sunglasses. However, Transitions lenses make it difficult to see his (very pretty) eyes in photographs and also became a problem during our engagement shoot.
In some shots, he was even asked to take them off so that they could fully capture his (adorable <3 ) face.
Because of this problem, we’re thinking of grabbing an old pair of glasses and replacing the lenses so that he can wear them to the wedding. They’re rimless Ray Bans, so they’ll look sleek from the sides. But from the front, it’ll look like he’s not really wearing glasses.
That way, people can focus more on his fabulous face.
About a week or so ago, we got the lenses changed for his glasses, and I think they look good. Here he is with his rimless, Transitions-lenses-less glasses:
What do you think about bearded men? How about grooms in spectacles?
