Oh gosh. I’m 11 months away and getting so stressed about how emotional I’m going to be on my wedding day!! I’m such a crier. I cry at cute animals and babies and sweet commercials on TV! And when I’m looking through other couples’ wedding photography and videography I totally UGLY CRY!
Im so scared i’m going to be a big snotty mess.
So here is my question- anyone out there a big snotty crier that was able to keep it together on the wedding day? Any tips or tricks? or does anyone just want to commiserate with me? lol

@FutureMrsT1221: I was so worried that I would be an absolute mess because I am definitely a crier! I was so much better on the wedding day than I thought I would be.
I did cry when the processional music came on and a little during the ceremony when my grandpa did a reading but besides that I was good to go. I think having a first look really helped so if you arent against that, I would recommend it.

I cry all the time. And I kept it together!
Well I got pretty anxious about 15 min before we started. I did tear up and almost cried right before/during my walk down the aisle. But after that I did fine! I think I was just too happy by that point.
We did have a first look and I think that helped a lot! I wasn’t anxious until he left right before we started and I was alone and waiting.

I’m an ugly crier, and I cry all the time at everything! I was terrified of being a sloppy mess during the ceremony. Luckily, I got it out of my system when it was just my dad and me before we walked out. When the processional music came on, I was just so dang excited that I couldn’t cry!
My husband on the other hand… he did not get it out of his system, and pretty much cried for the entire ceremony. Better him than me. Bahahaha.

@SaraP2012: I could totally see how a first look would help!! FI is super traditional and would never agree to do it though, I don’t think.

@FutureMrsT1221: Ugly crier and was not able to keep it together
A few times I looked up at the lights to keep my tears away, but honestly–CRY for goodnesss sake. It is a happy day, and it doesn’t ruin photos. I can look back at this and say, “I was ugly crying because my husband was singing a beautiful song to me.”
No one ever came up to me and said, “You were gross when you cried.” No one has looked at my photos and said, “haha look at your ugly crying face.” Lol. There was so much heart in our wedding. It was ok to cry.
And, for the record, we did do a first look and that made it world’s easier, but I cried because his song was a surprise and it got emotional during our unity candle, but I don’t regret crying. I am a human being who has a soft spot, lol.

@megz06: how sweet that he sang you a song!! <3 it’s true, I guess crying from happiness isn’t the worst thing that could happen at your wedding 🙂 I’m just scared I won’t be able to get it under control haha. I will remember your lights trick!
