Just thinking about walking down the isle, standing in front of my soon to be husband is making me well up. 

Like other women have said I don’t like crying, especially in front of people, but I know when our eyes meet for the first time, remembering all that we’ve been through, wondering what is in front of us after we’re married, looking at our friends and family and being lifted up in their love and support of us and feeling those raw emotions I know I’ll cry and I deserve to, everyone deserves to shed a few tears….or a lot of them! 

My mom will be crying, hopefully my Fiance will be crying and I seriously hope that I remember to buy water-proof/smudge proof mascara and that I don’t cry so much that I look ugly in my pictures. lol!

Probably.  I cry at everything.  I cry when I’m happy, when I’m sad, when I’m angry, I cry at most movies and TV shows.  I also cry if someone else starts crying.  I’m hoping beyond all hope that Fiance brother (Best Man) will do something crazy/funny to take my mind off tears and hopefully make me laugh instead.

Oh lord, I’m sure I will. It would be okay if I wasn’t an ugly crier, but, alas, I am. It’s awful.

Oh I CRIED.  Man did I cry!

I knew I would, but I figured it would be durig the vows.  Nope!  I didn’t even make it that long!  As soon as I turned the corner and saw my husband at the end of the aisle, I started crying.  Not the cute crying, either:

Yep, that was my face!  LOL  Unsurprisingly, I cried during the vows too.

My husband didn’t think he would cry, but when it came to the ring exchange, the line “With this ring, I give you my hand, and my heart, because I know it will be safe with you” just did him in 🙂

Here he is trying in vain to hold back the tears (there was already one going down his other cheek, which made me very happy lol):

In my first wedding, I was the main organizer and was so worried about the details and making sure my insane family was corralled that I was mostly just alert and anxious during the first half of my procession. It wasn’t until I made the u-turn and saw my then-FI (outdoor wedding, walked along hedges then turned into garden area) that I relaxed and smiled a real smile. At that point, I was too full of relief and love to do anything but beam. When I got to the altar, he looked like HE might start crying, so I ended up pulling myself together to be the soothing, encouraging one. Not that he needed it, just my reaction when I see someone else’s tears. 

For my encore, I might not be able to hold back the tears. Fiance is the type to only cry at extreme physical pain, so there won’t be a strong reason to stop my waterworks. I’ve been looking for waterproof everything (is there such a thing as waterproof make up foundation?) for that reason!

I am most definitely going to cry my eyeballs out. What’s worse, I get Rudolph nose when I cry. I’m going to need all kind of magic make-up that day.

I thought for sure that I would cry, but I didn’t, but my husband did during our vows:)

I honestly was a lot more emotional than I had anticipated and came VERY close to crying during his vows. Neither of us really ended up crying but all the guests were bawling complete with sniffles and tissues at the ready.

Everyone else cried but I didn’t. I kept it together. Then again we had a traditional ceremony of our faith and didn’t read vows to each other, so who knows, maybe I would have cried had we done that. Either way, I just happened to watch my ceremony on video after months of not and I cried. LOL

I’ve heard so many brides say that they were sure they would cry but they didn’t.

I almost cried when I saw my mum while I was walking down the aisle. She was crying and that set me off. But I just looked at my husband and he looked so serious that it stopped my waterworks.

@sarahbabs:  Thanks so much! I consider myself an “ugly crier” so I’m not a fan but I am glad that the photographer captured it.

Ugh I did. I am not a cryer. I didn’t cry when he proposed or anything but I started bawling when my mom and her boyfriend were giving me away. It just hit me. There was a dog swimming in the water and I had to stare at it to focus on not crying ha ha!

@Treejewel19:  Oh there is nothing ugly about that!  Now MY face… lol.  I think we are all just harsher on ourselves about our “ugly cries”- tears of pure joy are always beautiful too see! 🙂
