I cry at everything, but I didnt cry at my engagement or wedding. I was too excited!

I surprised myself by not crying at all! We were in a very public place so I was mostly just overwhelmed with nerves. Not at all in a bad way, it was incredibly exciting!

I ugly cried and sobbed like a child as soon as he went down on one knee. Kept doing it thru the yes…while he put the ring on…and for about 5 full minutes after. I was sobbing so hard that he was just a blurry thing and I didn’t actually see the ring until after I finshed sobbing my eyes out. 

But I’m a big baby. Commercials make me cry.

I am not a crier so it shocked me when I broke down in ugly tears and essentially missed what he was saying – I got the point, but missed all of his proposal🤭.

He surprised me by flying in my mom and having his best friend there, candles and flowers filled the room and I was just overwhelmed and so surprised!

I now find myself crying even at sappy movies. 😂

secretgarden :  Congrats! I thought I would, but I didn’t. Also thought I’d cry at my wedding, but I didn’t.

No, I didn’t cry. I was ecstatic, overjoyed, and on a super high, but no tears. I didn’t think I’d cry when I got my wedding dress either, but I did get teary eyed at “the one.” For the actual wedding, I don’t think I cried either. The wedding day was more emotional as a whole than the proposal day though. On my wedding date, I was so overwhelmed with happiness that it was surreal.

So, I am generally not an emotional person, and I am also not a super girly girl… but when he proposed while I didn’t cry, I did straight up girly hands to mouth in shock coupled with this weird little stomp of excitment. It’s all on video and I find it kinda emberassing lol. 


EDIT: My fiance cried before he even proposed, I had no idea what was happening and I was really confused as to why he was crying while we were taking pictures lol.

I SOBBED like happy ugly crying couldn’t breathe sobbing. I even put my hand over my mouth (which I used to joke about not doing/not understanding why that seems to be in every engagement picture- now I get it ha). I was also in a public park and even though I had figured out it was probably coming an hour before I still totally broke down. 

Needless to say I’m hoping I can hold it together for the wedding hahaha.

I am not a crier at all for anything! I always said I’d probably be so excited that I’d run and jump on him. It went soooooooo in the other direction! He got an “ooohhh!” Then both hands went directly to my face as I bent forward. I was sobbing into my hands and felt like I was going to pass out and apparently I kept stepping back from him. Nothing came from my mouth besides sobs and I wasn’t even looking at him. At this point the room went quiet because I think people thought it was a no! I felt sooo bad afterwards for my reaction lol. Needless to say he knew it was a yes and came over to me and pulled me upright. Mind you I still hadn’t said anything. He had to take my hand and steady it to put the ring on because I was shaking incontrollably. He caught me so off guard I think I went into fight or flight response. I LITERALLY sweat through my clothes and it was dripping down my neck and legs and I was sooo afraid that people were going to think it was something else besides sweat lol! It wasn’t one of my greatest moments and of course it’s all on film! Lol!!! Now I’m afraid of what will happen on our wedding day because the reaction I had to the proposal was not what I thought would happen at all!

We were at a black tie ball and once we came inside. I sat at the table and balled my eyes out.  All the strangers at our table found out. The news got to the general manager of the hotel and the band announced our engagement.  Then we were made to dance to Purple rain in front of everyone
