Well, FI is an atheist and I’m agnostic so I got through it okay πŸ˜‰ But it’s BEAUTIFUL! πŸ™‚ I love that you two shared the beauty of it and cried together! Maybe if you practice it a bunch more it will get easier?

I’m sharing in your fear/realization that we’re gonna be crying the whole time. We wrote our own vows and we’re keeping them a secret from each other, I practiced mine the other night and barely got through them! After that, we’re repeating the kinda boring but still hard to get through without crying, civil ceremony vows. I told him he’s in trouble if seeing me coming down the aisle does NOT make him cry πŸ˜‰

I’m debating not doing any makeup because it’s gonna be all cried off before pictures! πŸ˜›

I was totally there. I cried for all the special parts of the wedding. I was totally fine behind the doors–actually trying to get my dad NOT to cry. Then, as soon as the doors opened and I saw everyone stand for me–cue ugly cry face!! I pulled it together and smiled, with tears dripping down my face, because I didn’t want to have an ugly face in all of my pictures, lol. And yes, it is possible to smile and cry–don’t be afraid to!

I cried during both songs that were sung. We had friends sing One Hand, One Heart from West Side Story, which is one of my favorite songs and I love the lyrics, and as soon as it started I had to turn my face away from the congregation and get a few tears out. I quickly pulled it together and was fine.

BRING A PRETTY HANKY!! I used and old family one throughout the ceremony and it saved me a few times!!! I even had everyone laughing when DH took the snotty rag from me when I needed both of my hands.

I also tried to listen to Canon in D, which always makes me cry, about a million times before my wedding but I still cried.

Let me tell you, waterproof mascara, eyeliner, and foundation are a MUST! In my pictures you would never know I cried! Just make sure you let the tears fall gracefully and it will be beautiful πŸ™‚

That sounds beautiful.

I was so giddy and on cloud nine. I thought I would be crying during the whole ceremony since I cried picking the readings and the music. I teared up a little when walking down the aisle but after that I can’t even begin to explain how happy I was. You couldn’t get a tear out of me if you tried.

Have your fiance carry a clean handkerchief in his pocket (or two!)

I tried really hard not to let the tears fall down my face, and it worked for the most part. I spent probably half the ceremony blinking back tears. The Catholic ceremony is really moving and beautiful, I don’t blame you for already crying while you were planning!

So… not to add to your worry, but my success at not letting tears fall backfired on me, because just before it was my turn to say the vows, they started falling out of my nose. Yeah. The handkerchief came in handy, and I was SO thankful our priest is this big Irish man who pretty much blocked me from view of our guests. LOL.

Hope your wedding is beautiful!!
