Okay I know weddings are emotional and people will understand if you cry but…I am afraid once I start I won’t be able to stop. I get teary eyed just thinking about our wedding day and Lord help me if I hear Canon in D I absolutely lose it! And I just know my FI is going to tear up so that won’t help matters. So my question is did you cry at your wedding? And if so, how did you keep it under control?

Yes, I did. The whole dang day and I’m not even an emotional person. My pianist was playing my song to walk down the aisle to for around 30 seconds before the doors of the church even opened because I was crying so much. Then I cried during the father/daughter dance.
Oh and I couldnt control it. Good luck if you think you will cry! 🙂
This is my ugly crying face during my whole ceremony. LOL.

- Wedding: June 2012 - Franklin Plaza
I cried. All freakin’ day. I did not keep myself under control. I was a hot mess.
That being said, I know a lot of brides thought they were going to cry, but they didn’t. I didn’t think I was going to cry and ended up sobbing uncontrollably ALL FREAKIN’ DAY. You just never know.
My best advice is, if you’re going to cry… Let it flow. A natural cry face is much prettier than a scrunchy, trying-to-hold-it-in face. 😀

I haven’t had my wedding yet, but I can’t imagine I will cry. I am not a very emotional or romantic person. My FI is both though and I am sure he will be crying like a baby, lol.
@Janaic88: Your makeup stayed on perfectly! You don’t look like a mess at all 🙂

I teared up during the vows and my MOH’s toast, but I didn’t full on cry. I don’t know how I kept it together, to be honest. DH teared up a few times, too, and kept his cool as well.

Oh I am sure that I will be crying next Saturday . It also doesn’t help that my monthly friend will be visiting so that just makes it that much harder not to cry ..

You know, I am a super emotional person but I only cried a little when I got to the altar and met my (now) DH’s eyes. However, I DID nearly faint on the trip down the aisle – luckily both my parents were walking with me. There’s a hilarious photo somewhere of me being supported by my folks, face white as a sheet. You never know how you’ll react! 🙂 Still happily married 10 years later!
@Janaic88: Aww you still looked beautiful 🙂

@DaisyBelle: Oh dear, I didn’t even think about fainting! Glad you made it down the aisle though! 🙂

@MrsDeLovely: I didn’t cry. But I also haven’t cried in probably 5+ years. So I wasn’t really expecting to.

I definitely thought I would cry when he proposed, but I didn’t. I was too shocked to cry!
I get very emotional thinking about our wedding day, how much I’m looking forward to being his wife, and our future together, but I’m not sure if I’ll cry on my wedding day or not. I kind of hope I do, is that weird? It’s just that if I cry, I’ll know I’m taking it all in emotionally rather than feeling removed from it because I’ve been planning it for months.

@MrsDeLovely: I definitely want to follow this thread. I always cry when I imagine my wedding day, particularly walking down the aisle, or our first dance. I do not think I will be the lucky one that thinks they will cry all day and then doesn’t – I wish though! My parents and FI and I were at our venue recently walking through the ceremony area and both my mother and I started crying. We are going to be complete messes all day… Any tips on how to control this I would totally love to hear as well!!

@Marbut4613: Omg I’m so afraid this is going to happen to me too. Right now it should be two days later but I’m so worried that it will be early. Are you planning to do anything special to prepare? I’m worried about our honeymoon too. I hope this isn’t an odd question lol. You can PM me rather than post… or ignore me if it’s too personal haha, I totally get it.

I held it together like a champ until I started walking down the aisle. Then lost it. But that’s the only time I cried!
