    I’m a cryer but somehow I really do think I will be too happy (and too nervous having all of those eyes on me) to start the waterworks as I come down the aisle. As for the vows…well, I may lose it. My cry face is not pretty, either. I had a friend who got married a few months ago.  As she walked down the aisle she was beaming and had a lone, elegant tear roll down her cheek, no redness or anything. Afterwards I was like, “how did you do that??”

    i’m pretty sure i will, but i’m hoping it’d be a “moderate” on because i don’t want to ruin my makeup. i’m foreseeing my dad, my mom, my sister crying too! and i’m hoping my FI would cry too, LOL!

    If my dad tears up while I’m walking Ill cry.

    But I think I’ll probably save the tears for our second reading, from The Velveteen Rabbit. I have a hard time reading it even just sitting at my desk without tearing up.

    I’m a cryer too but I don’t think I’ll cry down the aisle. I think it’ll be somwhere around the exchanging of rings/vows or maybe something the pastor says.. maybe at the very end? lol anyway, yeah somewhere while i’m standing up there, i’m guessing.

    I was told as a bridesmaid last year that if you think you will cry then look up and to the right. Has something to do with releasing pressure from tear ducts.. Not sure how scientific it is but it at least helped us get distracted from tearing up 🙂 

    Im hardly ever cry but i know my emotions will be all over the place so who knows what will happen! Im keeping this little trick in mind though.

    i’m a cryer and already know i’ll be crying. FI never cries but today we were watching same day edits from our cinematographer and we both actually teared up at the bride and grooms first look, and we still have almost a year soo…i’m pretty sure we will both be crying. But, i hope mine is under control, i don’t want to ruin my make up either lol

    I’m not a crier, but I wouldn’t be surprised either way. I cried when he proposed so who knows. If I do cry, I hope that it won’t be an ugly cry and I will still be able to talk.

    I have visions of smiling my way down the ailse and cheerfully giving the fella a big hug when I meet him at the end of the ailse, but if I’m honest with myself I’m pretty sure I’m gonna lose it when I see him… SO don’t wanna be doin’ the ugly cry in front of everyone!

    Tearing up, probably. Ditto for the rest of the ceremony.

    I was beaming – GRINNING – almost way too much.  And my husband wasn’t turning around – I couldn’t figure out why (later found out his best man said he had to wait til I was halfway up the aisle – what???)  but I just smiled my way up the aisle.  Until he turned around.  THEN I started to cry.  Full on ugly cry face.  But it was temporary – once I had my hands on him I was back to stupid grinning face.  :0)

    Thought I would, but didn’t, I was so happy to see him.  Ended up giving my tissues to him, so he could wipe his face.  It was 90+ degrees inside the church!

    I didn’t cry once during the ceremony or reception and I’m a HUGE crier. I just grinned the entire time. I was “sure” that I would cry, but I didn’t!! My hubby’s eyes welled up during the ceremony and mine didn’t. Never in a million years would I have predicted that!!

    I will be sure to cry.  I cry at all the other weddings I go to!  Plus I’ll be walking down the aisle to Pachelbel’s Canon in D (I know, so cliche, but I love it) and the song alone makes me emotional.  Oh, and it will be very meaningful for my dad to walk me down the aisle so I’ll be crying because of that too!  I hope I’m not too much of a mess!! :S
