Crying as a bridesmaid?

I bawled through my BFF’s wedding.  She was so beautiful and she and the groom were both so visibly overjoyed, I just couldn’t hold it in.  And just to even things out, there’s a funny picture of her crying and digging a tissue out of the bust of her dress during my ceremony.

To be fair, I’ve never NOT cried during a bridal procession.  I’m a total sap.

I cried through all of my friend’s wedding this past May – like you, I just couldn’t help it. They’d waited SO long to get married and the entire thing was so beautiful, especially knowing what both of them went through to get to that point. Everyone in the room was crying, though, so I didn’t really feel too self-conscious about it.

At a wedding I was at last month, the maid of honor lost it. As in, completely broken out in hives all over her chest and neck, flushed face, swollen eyes, sobbing, losing her shit. It was super distracting, especially since she was standing right next to the bride. She had to be consoled after the ceremony. It was pretty weird.

@cwedding14:  I was a bridesmaid in a wedding of a very good friend last year. I definitely got teary and a few times had to look up because I didn’t want to look at her or anyone else because I thought it would make it worse. When I saw the video after, I noticed it wasn’t just me, about half the bridesmaids had teary eyes. No one was straight out crying though.

The only time I was a bridesmaid, I was fine through the processional but absolutely lost it during vows. Another bridesmaid had tissues and handed me one. 

The last wedding I went to, at least 3 or 4 of the 8 bridesmaids were sobbing during the wedding. One of them must have been holding back during the ceremony but then as soon as it was over, she must have completely lost it. I didn’t notice her crying hard during the ceremony. When we saw her later when the wedding party was announced, she was a giant mess and had clearly been full-on bawling and tried to clean up. (WEAR WATERPROOF MASCARA, LADIES!)

I bawled when my friend came out of her bedroom in her gown and hair and makeup!  I hadn’t been expecting her to come out ( thought she was still at the salon) and she caught me off guard!  Luckily only little tears at the ceremony.

@RedWine13:  Yeah, I also cried when we put my BFF in her dress, when her mom saw her for the first time, when she and her husband did their first look…  I must have been straight up PMSing or something because I was a hot mess.

I’m going to be MOH in my cousins wedding soon and I have to give a speech/toast, I think I can keep it together when she walks down the aisle but when I have to give the speech I think I’m going to lose it!

I bawled at my sister’s wedding, when I was a BM. I was an absolute mess during her receiving line. Everything was so beautiful and I just kept thinking how she was going away to start her own family now. I had no idea I was going to break down like that, but I did! I usually cry a little at weddings, but not like that!

I am such an emotional person so yes I am definitely a wedding crier! Even as a guest I have cried! At my own wedding my friends were placing bets at how many times I would cry lol!

The first time I was MOH I cried. I tried really hard to hold it back because I didn’t want the bride to hear me. What ended up happening was a whopply chin and muffled wimpering. I am sure I looked odd in pictures, but I don’t think she noticed during the actual ceramony.

I can almost garuntee that this summer when I am MOH again I will cry. I cry just thinking about my speech (not nervous tears, but emotional bestest friend tears)

I was MOH at my sisters wedding and cried all the way down the aisle and through the whole ceremony. She didn’t shed a tear 🙂

all of my BMs were tearing up at our wedding. Someone gave DH a tissue at one point, which he gave to me to use after him, which I handed to my MOH who used it and apparently it got passed down the line from there. haha
