Mr. Sew, as you may have noticed, can’t see. He needs glasses, and strong ones. Though he has contacts, he just doesn’t look like himself without the rims. So naturally, he decided it would be best for him to wear them on our wedding day.
However, there was a problem (isn’t there always?). His glasses have transition lenses, meaning they change into dark sunglasses when hit with UV rays.
I’m pretty sure I want to be able to look my future husband in the eye when he says his vows to me. No rock star indoor sunglasses, please!
The solution was simple – have Mr. Sew get some new glasses without transition lenses. He was due for an appointment anyway.
Who is this man in trendy square glasses, and what happened to Mr. Sew?
We went through every pair of glasses they had in the store. None of them looked like his old glasses. In fact, there were hardly any round rims at all! Most were squared or partially squared, so maybe that’s the style now? Frustrated by not finding any matches, he decided he was just going to go in a completely new direction.
Completely new. He likes them, and they look good on him, I admit. But something kind of bothers me. I know I’ll get used to them eventually, but being brand new and all – I’m pretty perturbed by the “huge change”. I don’t want to look at all our photos and only notice his un-Sew-looking glasses.
Amazing fiance working hard our wedding music? Nope! Glasses, glasses, glasses!
Hopefully they will be more familiar to me in the coming month. Mr. Sew promised he’d bring his old glasses to Hawaii just to ease my mind, though it seems silly to flip out over something so trivial. Obviously the glasses he wears does not change the person he is. But at the same time, glasses play a big part in characterizing Mr. Sew, and I’ve always seen him in round, silver glasses. Think of it as the equivalent of dying your hair blond when it’s normally black – it’s a big change!
Anyone else undergo a big change right before the wedding? A dye job, perm, new tattoo or a fancy pair of specs?
