After our latest premarital sessions, our pastor sent us some examples of wedding ceremonies. Up until that point, everything was all about the wedding as opposed to the marriage…
Well let me tell you, it was such an amazing feeling when I was putting together our ceremony service. I was reading the different wording of things and vows and I just kept thinking about how I’ll be saying these words to my FI in a month! I found myself tearing up and picturing us up at the alter and repeating the words I was typing up on my computer.
Everything feels so real and meaningful now. It’s not just a big party…we’re getting married!!
Anyone else have a moment like this? Something similar or this exact thing? Tell me about it 🙂

We did! We chose our ceremony from a packet that our officiants sent us, and we were so excited to be having a ceremony that was very us. Reading our vows and stuff was making me tear up!

@vorpalette: now I’m afriad I’ll cry during my vows or something. I’m so not a “happy crier” so when I tear up thinking about it, I think “aw crap. Now I’m going to cry in front of everyone” Lol. Did you end up crying during your ceremony?

@IzzyBear: I hear you – and I agree 🙂 I was the same way when my FI and I were going over the ceremony with the rabbi.

@IzzyBear: I had the same feeling writing my vows! Married a few months now and I still think about our vows almost every day.
I cried through writing them and cried through saying them at the ceremony. My husband also cried a river during the ceremony – more than me, according to eyewitness reports and photographic evidence! We had a few funny (but still honest) vows to keep it from being a total sobfest. Don’t fear showing true emotion. Our guests kept talking about how much they enjoyed our meaningful ceremony.

@IzzyBear: I lost it at the rehearsal (for some reason he made us say our vows even though he just verbally “told us” everything else that was happening), and I totally cholked. I had half the people there crying…and my FI….. the next day I was just so full of …..whatever you want to call it adrenaline, “LETS DO THIS”….lol that I was fine. I started to get slightly teary coming down the aisle but I pulled it together, and the vows were a bit emotional but we both pulled it off.
Believe me…. leading up to the wedding I was crying at everything, picturing us theree, listening to our songs for the ceremony, etc etc…. BIG CRYBABY lol…and I was 100% sure I was going to ugly cry all the way down until we hit kiss the bride!!!

my major fear is the ugly cry I’ve imagined the ceremony vows and such and well… we lost his dad at the end of July … it’s going to be a sob fest. I hope to have a few laughs but in the mean time I have stocked up on vintage hankies for the ladies.

@IzzyBear: I didn’t! DH and I are SO emotional normally–I ugly cried when he proposed, and we both cry at the drop of a hat. He teared up during our first look–just a little–but neither of us cried during the ceremony!

I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one! Lol
And I’m loving everyone’s stories from the day-of 🙂
