Everytime I think of my wedding day (or daydream about it), I get extremely emotional. I mean to the point of tears! Am I the only one? I can’t even imagine myself standing in front of my fiancé saying I DO without tears and snot and drool coming out of my face lol.
How’s a sister supposed to keep it together?! I have so many emotions running through me NOW that when the day comes I feel like a that’s all I’ll do is cry like a blubbering mess. My poor make up!
Anyone else excited and happy and overjoyed and emotional like me? How will you keep it under control on the big day? Any tips?
I’ve heard that looking up helps stop tears but I doubt that’ll save me!

No, you’re not alone! I was like this too! Just wait until it gets closer and the stress sets in – you won’t have time to feel emotional about it! At least I don’t. I mostly just feel annoyed now haha.
Pinching the skin between your thumb and index finger helps prevent you from crying! Not sure if you’ll be able to do this without people noticing though haha!
I’ve also heard that super emotional people beforehand were shocked that they didn’t end up crying at all on the big day. So, ya never know what will happen!

I felt like this while wedding planning…and then the day of I was SO NERVOUS about everything going right that it kind of sucked all of the tears out of me. I was pretty much on pins and needles driving to the venue, getting dressed, waiting to walk down the aisle, even during the ceremony! And then pretty much the second the ceremony was over and we were out of that space, all of the nervousness rushed out of me and I was just so happy!

I feel exactly the same way! My fear is that I’ll ugly cry throughout the whole ceremony and that’s the face that’ll be immortalised in pictures.. yikes! To help with this, we decided to do a first look before the ceremony to calm the nerves and spend some alone time together. We’re very private people to begin with so the thought of getting overly emotional in front of all our guests is daunting.

@MrsWBS: just wait til it gets closer and the stress sets in?! You mean there’s more stress?! I am working sooo hard on relaxing because I had a fair share of stress too early on in the planning phase that I said no more! Chill girlfriend! And so far it’s been working! I’d rather cry than be stressed I guess. Oh who knew being a bride was so tough!

@cinnakim: LOL! Ugly cry! That’s exactly what I fear! Thanks for helping me put it into words 😉 I am having a small ceremony with immediate family and BFFs only so it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world but still a little embarassing nonetheless.
I haven’t considered the private first look! What a good idea! It gives u time to see each other and have a quick chat and let it all sink in. I might have to do this but I don’t know how i’d plan it out aroun the family.. Hmm…

I had the same problem before my wedding! I would get teary about it at the drop of a hat! I was just SO EXCITED! The morning of, I woke up, realized I got to marry him, and cried of excitement. OY.
The weird thing is, when we were at the alter, I barely cried at all! I was SO worried about bad pictures, I think I had got most of the cry out and was training myself not to do it! 😛

@MxH13: no matter how organized you are, I feel like it’s impossible to not be stressed in the last week or two! Even though I’m pretty organized and prepared (and not even doing the planning – my mom is!) I’m still feeling very overwhelmed and stressed with pulling everything together.

I get SO emotional. It is RIDIC. My friend from the US (we keep having discussions about crying lol) made me this hanky that she had embroidered herself and it says ‘no ugly crying’ and I just love it coz I wont be able to go to her wedding and she wont be able to make it to mine so I just bawled when I got it. I ugly cried at the no ugly crying wedding hanky. Yup. I can’t even think about the ceremony, my dad and mum walking me down the aisle, seeing my boyfriend, havign my 3 bridesmaids and my 3 bridesmen and my little nephew there… ahh. It is distressing! lol!! I hope I dont go beserk for the day (Im hoping I will get it all out the way by then – especially at my best friends wedding in April to whom I am a bridesmaid).

Oh yes!!! I’m in the same boat. However, I think I’m going to be more emotional once my father sees me in my dress for the first time. My mother told me that he cries when he thinks about my wedding or sees a wedding on tv. Hmmm wonder where I get it from. LOL

I totally got mushy today on the train thinking about our vows.
other times I get really smiley and touch my Fiance’s arm, sometimes I shake his elbow and say “we’re getting married!” randomly

I got blubbery when I walked out in THE dress and pictured myself standing across from my Fiance. I guess my plan is to try to cry it out at the rehearsal so it’s over and released by the day of.

I’m in the same boat… Anything wedding related makes me cry, anything really romantic makes me cry, I’ve warned FH that I may be one big snotty tearful mess all day when we get married!

It is a very emotional day! I cried the whole time I wrote my vows or read them, every time I listened to our ceremony song I choose to walk down the aisle or even just envisioned saying “I do!” I was such a ball of nerves that day however that I was so shocked when I got through my vows and the entire ceremony without crying! 🙂
Then after the ceremony when we walk back down the aisle as now MR. & Mrs. and into an area where the wedding party gathers, I turn around as I enter the room and see my 18 year old daughter (who was my MOH) balling her eyes out and choking out how beautiful it was and I lost it! LOL Hell, I am tearing up now recalling it and I have been married for 4 months! Haha!
