LMAO!!! I am definitely worried about this too! But I’m hoping that a trend I’ve recently noticed continues for me. I will bawl my eyes out at stuff that happens on TV, and sometimes if something very similar happens to me in real life, I don’t cry. It’s like I have to have the background music and multiple camera shots to make the tears flow or something, IDK.

I was a blubbering idiot for my wedding.  The entire 15 minutes before the ceremony when I was standing with my dad I kept crying, then stopping, crying then stopping.  Mustve happened about 3-4 times before he told me to stop because I was making him cry.  I had what I thought was the ugly cry face in alot of my photos.  I actually did ok once I was up there and only started with the voice quivering at the very end of my vows.   No one cared and if they noticed, they thought it was sweet.  Make sure your groom has some tissues for you when you reach him.  Hopefully everyone else will be too busy crying to notice you crying 🙂

I was a blubbering idiot during our ceremony. I’m not one to cry, either. But I definitely just decided that if I was ever going to be a blubbering idiot, our wedding was the time, because it showcased how we truly felt about each other. I was so bad, at one point, our officiant had to get us a tissue.

My make-up was streaked, but you couldn’t tell in pictures, and my MOH blended it back in after the ceremony. It was all good! During cocktail hour, I told people I hoped they could actually understand our vows (husband was crying, too), and they all said it was touching to see real emotion.

Don’t worry about it! If the flood gates open, let them!

I’m pretty sure I’ll be a mess.  I tend to cry at everything, including the Kardashian wedding special… and hallmark commercials, pet shelter adds, homeless people.  I’m nuts.  So, I’m just gonna wear waterproof mascara and put tissues in the breast pocket of every man I know.  But don’t worry about how it looks, I think its so sweet and just shows how much love you have for each other.

I’ve already accepted that I’ll be a blubbering idiot during the wedding. I’ve just told everybody to have buckets to put under my face. :p

I am really afraid of this too. I tear up when I hear our first dance song.. and it’s a song that plays all the time on the radio… I worried a lot about crying as I walk down the aisle… so we decided to do a “first look.” This makes me feel SO much better, that i’m going to get to see and talk to my beloved before we take that step. I’ll already know he likes my dress and we’ll have connected beforehand so I’ll just plain be excited.. I hope. 🙂

lol I used to be so hard-hearted when I was a teenager. I rarely cried. Then in college, it’s like a switch was flipped. I cry at commercials and movies, I *sobbed* through Grand Torino and Pan’s Labryinth (freaked out Mr Spin lol) and SaTC, of all things, I get choked up reading PostSecret…I’m going to be a wreck on our wedding day, I know it. ^_^ I am not a pretty crier, either, so I’m just going to have a tissue or hankie or something and do my best to smile and talk through the tears.

I think we need a “Post pictures of your ugly cry!” post. ^_^ I’d post after my wedding!

Haha, I know I will be a trainwreck too… I just hope that by the time the wedding rolls around, I will just be so desensitized to the whole thing, it won’t be an issue anymore.

But yes, I definitely think a first look is key and totally plan to do this!

Um, I’ve pretty much accepted that it’s going to happen and there’s NOTHING I can do about it. We’re taking pictures beforehand, that’s for sure!

Hahahaha, I’m in the same boat, Mr Trail Mix pretty much says everytime that I cry (which is about 10 times a day) “if you’re crying at this, what are you going to be like at our wedding?”

To which I can only reply “worse!” I’ve accepted it, I’m over it, the pictures will look terrible but oh well….

I always cry at weddings and I also cry when I watch them on tv! But I didn’t cry at mine… I don’t know why. I think there was just too much going on…. it seemed surreal.
