It never fails. The second I hear Canon in D and see a bride walk down the aisle, the tears start pouring out. It normally takes a lot to make me cry, but at weddings, all bets are off. How am I supposed to stay semi-composed as my dad walks me down the aisle to the man of my dreams? I was a blubbering mess when he proposed to me and I have a feeling/fear I am going to be a mess at my wedding too! I even considered changing the song from Canon to D to something else but I have always dreamed of walking down the aisle to that song. Does anyone have any suggestions? I feel silly asking this but this is something I seriously worry about.
What’s a girl to do??

Seriously, I am concerned that this might be an issue too. I talked to my fiance about it and he was like, “So? You cry. You and the love of your life are becoming husband and wife. No one is going to think there is something wrong with you if that makes you a bit emotional.” He also added that he is sure he will cry too…and if he doesn’t have a problem with it, he’s not sure why I would….well, other than the make-up issue.
So, I plan to have waterproof mascara and just go with the flow. I realized he’s right. I have been to weddings where either the bride or groom cried…and found it very touching. Of course, I always ended up a bit teary myself.

OMG. If you find out the answer please let me know.
I have this problem too.
Not only do I cry when I watch you tube proposals, but I have cried at weddings where I was the random date and had never even met or seen the couple before in my life.

I marked this as a favorite because I know I will be a (happy) sobbing mess. If I can’t even hold in the tears at my friends’ weddings, I know I won’t be able to hold it in at mine!

I agree with not looking at women in your family who are already crying. I was actually really excited walking down the aisle and didn’t cry. I started crying when his aunt came up to me afterward bawling!

Is it Canon D that makes you cry or is the bride that makes you cry? My BMs are walking to canon D, I am walking to the Wedding March! That one doesnt make me cry, it just gives me goosebumps (which are far less noticiable than tears!)

VirginiaMarie, I am concerned because I think I’ll have a combo of the music, being the bride, AND (the biggest two) walking with my dad (who I am very close to) and walking toward my fiance.
Oh gosh. There’s no hope for me.

Yes, I can agree with that Gemstone (about Dad!) My dad is wonderful, and I think walking with him will make it an emotional journey for me. Mom already told me that he’s planning on “coaching me” as we walk….saying things like “You look beautiful, smile at everyone, keep your head up..”‘ UGH…tears.

ummm i have the same problem…however i see myself crying from looking at my fiancee NOT looking at my mom, etc.
hmmm mental note: must look into xanax.
oh and oh god i see myself crying when my dad gives me away…even tho we’re not 100% close, i see myself just being a perfect emotional mess. ugh.

Everything about the bride walking down the aisle makes me cry (even if I don’t know her). The music. Her being escorted by her dad or someone important. Her FI waiting for her. It gives me goosebumps every time.
The worst part, I KNOW my dad will be crying. I am daddy’s little girl and he already told me to expect some tears from him. I don’t mind a little crying on my part but I don’t want to be sobbing. Maybe I will tell my FI to make funny faces at me or something…except he will be crying too.

I wish I could tell you but I was one helluva hot mess walking down the aisle. Everyone thought it was sweet i was so emotional about it. Gag, haha. Wear waterproof makeup and you’ll be fine! I calmed down about halfway through our vows….i just got all worked up and couldn’t chill.
I think i was good until i was a few steps out the door and my dad leaned over and was telling me how proud he was of me, how he couldn’t have asked for a better daughter, blah blah blah. My dad isn’t emotional and I COULD.NOT.STOP.
There are 15 seconds of silence in our wedding video when i can’t get my vows out. I’m trying to talk and nothing’s coming out!
