Congratulations on your special day! Now that you’ve found the perfect spouse and the perfect wedding day attire, it’s time to find the perfect pair of wedding sunglasses. UV-protective lenses are especially helpful if your ceremony or reception takes place in the sun. And there are plenty of options that will enhance even the most exquisite wedding looks.
But bridal frames don’t always have to be formal sunglasses. There are many pairs from which to choose, whether you favor classic white frames, retro cat-eyes, or even a fun pair of heart-shaped sunglasses.
Here are our top categories of shapes and overall picks for the best sunglasses for brides and bridesmaids.
For brides who prefer the “all dressed in white” look, it simply makes sense to embrace a pair of white sunglasses to complement your wedding attire. Tie your look together as you tie the knot with a pair of frames in a beautiful ivory or cream.
Our picks for white-rimmed bridal shades:
If you’re looking for a little extra glamour, consider a pair of sunglasses that is embellished with rhinestones or pearls. These small details add sparkle that can highlight the features of your jewelry, gown, and overall wedding aesthetic.
Our picks for bridal sunglasses with embellishments:
If you’re looking to express your love in a more visual sense, a pair of heart-shaped sunglasses can help you do so. Both cute and sophisticated, these frames are also perfect to pass down as someone else’s “something borrowed” after your big day.
Our selections for heart-shaped bride sunglasses:
For an ultra-suave look, consider a pair of shades with a little Old Hollywood flair. This can range from oversized round frames to sharp, distinguished cat-eyes.
Flaunt these styles before, during, and after your ceremony and enjoy their versatility:
The cat-eye shape offers a retro and romantic touch to elegant bridalwear — and a funky emphasis on more unique gowns. You’ll be the star of the show on your special day, but these frames can be your supporting character!
Our picks for cat-eye sunglasses for brides:
Red may not be a “traditional” bridal color, but adding a pair of red frames to your special look can offer a bit of bold fun. The contrast between a white wedding dress, black suits and red rims will also look stunning in photos!
A shade other than white is also something to consider when shopping for sunglasses for bridesmaids. Plus, a classic wayfarer silhouette (in either red or another color) is a great option for wedding party sunglasses.

Another thing to consider when finding your ideal bridal shades? Your face shape. Cat-eyes are more flattering on heart-shaped faces, while a square or rectangular shape tends to suit oval faces. But, at the end of the day, it’s all about what you love.
With so many options — and even more to choose from based on your theme — we are sure you’ll find the ultimate eyewear accessory for you and your wedding party.
