Could you possibly just wear your lenses for the actual ceremony and photos and then switch to your glasses for the reception?
This way you wont exceed the 2hrs so at least you will be comfortable...
I'd go much more for comfort than looks. You don't want anything to get in the way of the perfect wedding day!

First off congratulations on your upcoming wedding. :D

I'd go along with Kirsten's suggestion.

I got married just before I got my first lenses and knowing I'd be stopping wearing glasses soon I didn't want them on the wedding photos, so I got married without either. When people say the day goes by in a blur I don't think they had the sort of blur I experienced in mind. :lol:

In all honesty from my wedding it was just ablur and I had perfect vision at the time! It is such a busy time for the whole day you will barely remember any of it.

To truly see the day in its fullest you really need to have it filmed and watch it back ata later date.

Good luck for the wedding in March.

Where is your marriage going to take place? Will it be a religious or civil ceremony, or both. I know that in some jurisdictions weddings can take a very long time indeed, so that wearing your lenses may not be entirely practical.

All the best when your marriage date comes round.
