dannij8918 :  I am super sentimental and tear up all the time for happy things….so I was extremely worried about this on our wedding day. I got some crying out when I was getting ready and then as soon as we did the first look, everything just melted away and I was so happy and barely had any teary moments. I did tear up during one of the readings, but other than that I was good as gold. I just kept thinking about how happy I was to actually be getting to this point of finding someone amazing to spend the rest of my life with….and about silly things. I thought I would cry all the way through the vows and any speaking moments and surprisingly I did well! Just deep breathe and try to keep calm. Look up with just your eyes also and if you must, breathe a little air up with your lips so it hits your eyes and dries the tears up a bit.

I think if you practise your vows pre-wedding with your fiancé it will give you a chance to get your emotions out before the big day.

I was crying at the drop of a hat in the weeks leading up to our wedding. Soppy songs on the radio, having then FI’s suit tailored… everything set me off. On the day I didn’t shed a single tear. And I was sooo worried I was going to be a blubbering mess!

On a side note, my dad tripped over my train and nearly took me with him, so I guess I got a little distracted 😂

I wasn’t expecting to cry, but I cried all the way down the aisle. Really it was seeing everyone there from different periods of my life that did it. I don’t really mind that I was crying. You can tell in the pictures, but I’d rather be visibly crying and emotionally connected than to walk down the aisle forcing myself to think about something else. The blusher helped hide some of it.

I was fine once I got to the end of the aisle.

Yeah…it took me three hours to stop crying when we got engaged. I’m screwed.

What worked for me was when I started walking down the aisle with my parents I just focused on my future husband and I just walked towards him and we held hands the entire ceremony. No tears whatsoever

dannij8918 :  Haha there were multiple times during Blue Planet that I cried!! Every time they mention how humans are destroying the ocean I turn into a blubbery mess. I looked at Darling Husband while sobbing and managed to yell “the ocean is ruined and it’s all our fault!!” and he just laughed at me hahaha. I’m an emotional wreck most of the time!

I cry at EVERYTHING and everyone expected me to cry at my wedding. I had no tears! We did do a first look, but by the time I was walking down teh aisle I was so giddy and excited! So even a soft emotional wreck like me had no issues lol.

 There’s a picture of me hugging my Maid/Matron of Honor and making EXACTLY the Kim K cry face after the ceremony. At the time I was not happy I did that (I tried so hard to hold back the tears), but now it’s just too funny not to laugh about.
