@SupermarketGirl:  This whole crying thing comes from too much TV watching. Nope, I didn’t share one single tear all day long. In fact, not one person I know who got married did.

I was teary the entire morning of my wedding…So many emotions and thoughts going through my head I was abnormally quiet!  I thought I was going to be a mess during the ceremony, but the moment I saw my husband standing up there waiting for me everything just felt so right.  We were both shocked that I didn’t cry during the ceremony!  Typically, I’m a crier.

Well this makes me feel better, since I’m still in the tearing up at everything wedding related stage.  I actually want to avoid crying at my wedding, but I’m not sure if that’s possible.

Same here!! I get teary eyed when I see a wedding on tv or even when I go to a wedding no matter who it is…I’m such an emotional person and I got just a little misty eyed right as I started to walk down the aisle, but didn’t really shed any tears throughout the ceremony. Thought I would bawl my eyes out through the whole thing, but nope!

I feel you, OP. I cried all the time planning my wedding, how beautiful it would be, how I’d cry as I walked down the aisle. Aaaaand that never happened. I think part of me was scared of my ugly cry face being photographed haha. I also had really bad anxiety that day and I didn’t want to mess up my makeup. I was really positive I’d cry, though! The weird thing is, now when I listen to the song I walked down the aisle to, I still cry!! I didn’t cry the day of but I still do after! Ugh.

I know so many people who teared up on their wedding day. We went to a wedding where all three bridesmaids, the bride, the groom, the parents, and two of the groomsmen cried. It was really cute.

I’m fully expecting to ugly face cry. Then again, I expected to cry when I found my dress and totally didn’t.

I was definitely expecting to cry! I’ve seen a whole bunch of my friends tear up and I teared up every time we talked about vows. However, I didn’t even get misty eyed on my wedding day!

Yep! My dad and I both sobbed when either of us even thought about walking down the aisle, first dances or anything like that, but on the actual day, we were dry eyed. I got choked up once during my vows, but I expected to be too emotional to even get through them… So a few teary squeaks were just fine. Surprise of the day: my unsentimental husband actually cried when I walked down the aisle! I would have bet money that I’d be a mess and he would be fine, but it was kind of the reverse.

Yep, it happened to me. I totally thought I’d have a multitude of bad pics to live with due to a super-ugly cry face, but not a single tear was shed on the big day. I came *thisclose* during my vows, but I stayed dry-eyed! DH on-the-other-hand is usually really pulled together (I’ve seen him cry only a handful of times in the 12 1/2 years we’ve been together), but he cried 3 times–once as I was walking down the aisle, during my vows, and during his! He playfully scolded me after the ceremony, saying “ suck[ed]” because I didn’t cry, and he did, lol. He was probably just getting me back for scolding him during the ceremony–he kissed me once I got to the altar. ;]

My ugly almost cry face:

I didnt cry at all during the wedding. I was too happy (and unfortunately annoyed that no one listened to my request that they put away thier phones when i was walking down the aisle). I did cry  how ever during the father daughter dance.. I love my daddy 🙂

I expected to cry during the vows and the “mushy” stuff. The only time I cried was right before I had to walk down the aisle bc I was so freaking nervous. My DOC gave me champagne to help calm me down and I was fine after that.

I didn’t cry at all on the day of our wedding either and I cried over everything leading up to that day.  But it was still a beautiful wedding day! 🙂
