    Haha it’s totally inevitable that I cry and everyone who knows me knows that, but I’m going to do my darnest to keep it to a few “elegant” tears haha.

    I bawled my freakin’ eyes out. I was an absolute mess, but so wrapped up in the moment I didn’t even care what any of our guests thought.

    I got emotional and thought I might cry but didn’t. I’m just not a cryer.

    I always think it’s sweet to see emotion.

    I started to tear up, but was too worried about ruining my $$ makeup-job, so I held it in!

    Even then, I dabbed my eye funny with the kleenex our pastor gave me and it smudged my eye makeup and made one of my lashes come loose!  AH!  Good thing a friend wears lashes and had glue on her! 🙂

    Nothing wrong with showing that emotion! I think it’s sweet when the bride/groom cry.

    Nothing wrong with showing how you feel!

    I cried a few tears during our ceremony….I was very emotional…in a GOOD way.

    I’m probably going to cry, and I’m an UGLY crier haha. I’ll have to plan ahead and have a touch-up plan for my makeup before the reception.

    I thought I would bawl my eyes out as I started tearing up when we were editing/going over the ceremony wording. Surprisingly, I didn’t shed a single tear the day of – probably the adrenaline. I actually love the photos of brides crying, although there’s elegant crying and straight-up bawling.

    I don’t think it’s goingn to be something I can control – I’m sure it will happen but if it doesn’t that’s great too! It will be what it will be. People can think whatever the heck they want about it haha

    A trick for helping keep your control when you feel yourself welling up: press your tongue against the roof of your mouth. I have no idea why it works, but it really does help stifle tears!

    I will guarantee I will be a mess. I tear up reading our vows now. Or other people’s vows. Or seeing recaps. Or, well, really way too much. My best hope is that I just have tears running out of my eyes, not full-on, sniffling, ugly-face crying. I think it’s like 50-50 though.
