I just want to give some hope to anyone who is stressing about being a blubbering mess on their wedding day. I was so worried that I wouldn’t be able to keep it together, and leading up to the wedding I was a mess. The night before, while DH (love saying that!) was watching tv downstairs, I was upstairs secretly bawling ( happy tears of course! ) at the thought of getting married the next day.
Well, I woke up that morning feeling so excited and relaxed. My hairstylist and makeup artist kept commenting on how calm I was. Walking up the aisle I was all smiles, staring at my man and thinking to myself “this is awesome, I will be walking back down this aisle as a wife”
I was so certain I would be crying all day, but in the moment I was just so happy that the tears never came, not even during the vows and heartwarming speeches!
So ladies, don’t stress about how you may react on your big day because you may surprise yourself!!
Ok I lied… I did shed a few tears… At about 3 am when hubby and I finally got home and BD for the first time as husband and wife I let out a few “omg baby we are married” tears of joy hahahahaha

I am so happy that you posted because I am VERY worried about this, I know that I will either be too shocked that it is all actually happening to cry or cry all day all night haha!

I’m such a crier, but the only time I even teared up on my wedding day was when hubby read his vows. I fully expected to be a blubbering mess, but it was all kind of surreal, and by that point I was just over it and wanted my life back 🙂

I’m typically calm and collected and to me, my wedding day was just another day with a long to do list. I got to the church with my sweats and t-shirt and everyone was ready for me to freak out and I was just all straight faced and focused. Time to get dressed? Fine, let’s get dressed. Time to do makeup? Cool, let’s do makeup. All I asked for people to do was stop trying to pour their nervousness over on me. I didn’t want any silly nervous running around or any of that nervous excitement around me. It irritates me.
So I walked down the aisle, said our vows, and walked back out. All in a days work.

I’m an emotional girl, I thought I would cry too. I was too happy and excited, couldn’t stop grinning. The only tears I shed were during the speeches, the toast to the bride was sweet and mentioned my grandfather who passed the previous year. Bring up my Grandpa and I cry.

I’m getting married this sunday and I’ve been worrying about the same thing! It appears there’s hope after all I can be calm 🙂

I’m normally incredibly calm and collected. To the point where I’ve been referred to as the ice queen. So of course, there’s this small part of my brain that’s terrified that I’ll be ugly crying all the way down the aisle! You’re giving me hope that my freaked out brain is wrong!

I was surprised that I didn’t cry much harder than I did. Every time I heard my first dance song, or watched ANYTHING wedding on TV, I’d cry like a baby. I cried as I was writing my vows (the morning of – ha!) I was ok until the doors opened and I saw HIM, standing there at the end of the aisle. Even then, I only teared up a little. I got to the end of the aisle and stood there, looking at my soon-to-be-husband, and teared up a little more. Well, the DJ FORGOT to fade the song out as I reached the end of the aisle, so my emotional tears turned into muffled laughter from me and the rest of the bridal party. It was a fluke but it lightened the mood for the rest of the ceremony.

I’m a big crier though I only remember crying 3 times over my entire wedding day: before the wedding when I gave my mom her embroidered hankie (she started it!), when I saw my ceremony site for the first time, and when my SIL sobbed her way through her reading.
Now, I stood up in my best friend’s wedding last year and I was a blubbering mess every step of the way – right after we zipped her into her dress, when her mom saw her for the first time, when her husband saw her for the first time, when she was walking down the aisle, during their vows, etc. Good lord.

You give me hope! I cry in every movie, show, and any sad commercials so I worry I won’t be able to say my vows clearly, but I’m hoping for this day I’ll suck it up!
