I’m wondering if any of you married ladies experienced the same thing that I did on my wedding day.
For months – No, for a year before the wedding day, I would get tears in my eyes every time I thought about saying my vows, looking into DH’s eyes, getting lost in the moment….my dad walking me down the aisle and giving me away…the father daughter dance…
Seriously, just THINKING about those things would make me cry!
But then when the day came, I didn’t have a single tear in my eye! Whatttt!?!
I guess it was adrenaline and stress and exhaustion of all the days leading up to the wedding, but I just found it so weird that the thoughts of those things made me more emotional than the actual things themselves.
Anyone else have a similar thing happen?

@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! 🙂
