Cry.

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.

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!
