I don’t want to be a blubbering mess as I walk down the aisle. And I already know I will be considering I cry when the Sara McGlocklin SPCA commercials come on! It was suggested that I recite something silly to myself like “Peter Piper Picked a Peck of Pickeled Peppers” as I make the strut down the aisle. Any other advice?
I am a crier too. I almost started but I just focused on my man at the end of the aisle and kind of drowned everything else out. I don’t remember the music or seeing the people I was so focused on him. I just didn’t want a whole bunch of ugly face pics because when I cry I get ugly face..lol. And smile, just keep smiling.
I was worried about that too. Every time I imagined walking down the aisle, I teared up, so I thought for sure I would cry like a baby walking down the aisle and during the vows. When the time came, I couldn’t stop beaming like an idiot. People even commented afterwards how ecstatic I looked. I wish I could tell you how I did it, but I have no idea.
I guess my advice is not to worry about it too much and just let things run their course. Don’t ruin that special moment for yourself by reciting some silly rhyme. Take it all in and everything will fall into place!
I wouldn’t worry about it. I’m a big crier as well, but in overwhelmingly emotional situations I don’t tend to cry… I didn’t cry at any of my graduations or other monumental “life events” because there were too many conflicting emotions. If I cry on my wedding day, I think I will be happy, because it will mean I’m actually letting myself feel the emotions of the moment rather than being overwhelmed with too many emotions. Let it happen if its going to happen 🙂
Don’t worry about it! I think it’s beautiful when brides AND grooms cry. It just shows how happy they really are. I know I’m gonna be a big ball of tears by the time I reach my future hubby. Just wear waterproof mascara, so that way when/if you cry, you won’t have black tears all down your face 🙂
I was emotional all week leading up to the wedding and I thought for sure I’d have to hold back tars during the ceremony but I was alright. I welled up with a few tears after the flower girl went down the aisle because that meant we were next but I got it together and I was so happy I mangaged to smile my way down the aisle. There were emotional parts of the ceremony but I stayed focused on my husband’s eyes, both both did this actually and we were able to zone everyone out around us. This really helped calm our nerves.
Are you walking with someone? I would suggest getting them in on the plan. I didn’t want to cry but right before I walked down the aisle my dad starting giving me a heartfelt speech about how proud he was. It was over then!
Oh I need advice for this too! I cry whe I’m hsappy, sad, excited, and tired. I’ve already told my girls their biggest job will be to keep me from crying. My Maid/Matron of Honor is putting together a list of upbeat, happy, non-sappy songs for us to listen to while we are getting ready. Hopefully that helps!
