My best friend in the whole wide world got married this past saturday, and while she was calm as a cucumber, I was an emotional wreck. I cried when she came down the isle, I cried when they said their vows, I cried the whole way through my speech and I cried at the end of the night lol
I didnt think I would be so emotional and stuff and I realize its an emotional time, but now I am really worried about being that way on my own wedding day. Its two days later and I think my eyes are still puffy 😀
I started talking to my FI about it yesterday that maybe we should just elope, because I dont think I can handle my own wedding. I thought I wanted a destination wedding so it would be smaller and more intimate, but now I just kinda wanna scrap the whole idea. He is fine with whatever I want to do.
Has anyone had this reaction at a friends wedding or am I just crazy? lol

I am a crier – I cry at everything! A month before my wedding I was my BFs MOH and I cried all the way down the aisle!!!!!
But on my wedding day not a tear in my eye – I was sooooo happy! Even during the rehearsal I bawled down the aisle but when the day was there all I was was smiles!
You might surprise yourself – I sure did!

I cried like a baby at every wedding we attended after we got engaged. Everytime a couple said their vows all I could think was “That will be us in _____ days/months” and I just couldn’t hold myself together. I seriously thought I would be a mess at our wedding too. Happily I was not. I did cry, don’t get me wrong, but I thought I wouldn’t be able to get my vows out, or do our speech, etc, but I was fine. I was just so excited and happy and busy, I didn’t have time to really concentrate on “this is happening NOW” and get overwhelmed. Just make sure your FI has some Kleenex in his pocket. I forgot my grandmother’s hankerchief in my purse (so regret that), but DH had tissues for me thank goodness! They even had a blue stripe which I thought was cute since it could have stood in for my “something blue” 😉

My friend got married this past summer and I had such a panic attack that I thought I may not be able to walk down the aisle as her bridesmaid. The MOG who also happened to be doing our make-up got me calmed down. She had me doing yoga breathing as she was putting on my foundation!
Totally normal but think about eloping now rather then when you have all the invitations printed and ready to go….

Dude, I cried at a Julia Roberts movie about a wedding. I think it’s part of getting married because it’s very meaningful and special.

Honestly I dont think you know how youll be on your wedding day. I am a very emotional person..I’ll cry at commercials…and the weeks leading up to my wedding I was crying over spilled milk because I was so emotional! I expected the waterworks to be flowing on my wedding day! However, I was just ecstatic and couldnt stop smiling. I think I got a little teary-eyed and choked up while saying my vows and right after we were pronounced husband and wife…but other than that I just had a huge grin plastered on my face the whole night!

I am all for elopment if that’s what you two really want! I’ve never heard of a couple who regretted it. BUT, I think you shouldn’t make the decision based on fear of crying at your wedding! If that’s the only reason you’d elope, and you really would otherwise want a wedding, I say go for the wedding. 🙂

@FMM: Thats exactly how I was too! My bff was totally fine though all day! she didnt shed a tear. I guess because she was so excited and happy. I guess I got emotionally overwheled by all the love and support that was in the air, I couldnt help but cry lol
