Sis Austmuslimah - I'm sorry to hear about the reasoning behind the surgery in your case . . that's really unfortunate. I mean, if it was something you had wanted for sometime, then it would be cool, but just for marriage - UFF! I agree with akhan - such a negative idea that pervades our culture.
As for me, I've had glasses since I was 6 . . I did try contact lenses (first the hard ones, they weren't staying on properly, then the soft ones, but let's just say I had some issues, so decided to go back to glasses - though like you, they get on my nerves at times - just hate having something on my face, especially when people say I look better without them, though again, like you, it does feel weird.
I've had a family member that got LASIK and she is doing fine and then another family friend had it as well, and they are doing fine as well.
As far as the procedure, sometimes they do need to make small corrections down the road - sadly, I can't get it at this point, due to my eyeball's shape but it may be possible later . . .
Anyways, hope things work out for you either way.
