Let me just start by saying I have never been a crier. I mean a sad movie sure, injury ok, but crying at the appliance commercial where the kids give their mother the refirdgerator with the big red bow (i think this line was in a movie, Sleepless in Seattle maybe) dry eyes. However, lately there is always a chance of showers! A TV show, a commercial, a song, you name it sappy sapperson over here turns on the water works. My family and friends, not to mention my fiance have been so surprised! It is just not like me. My mom sympathizes and says it is just an emotional time but my goodness how do I turn these things off! I guess it would probably help to say there have definitely been times in my life when I really wasn’t sure I would get married. I have always been extremely independent and sort of lived my life thinking if it happens it happens never really planning for it to actually happen! I feel emotional about all the changes, excited, nervous, and full of anticipation. If I am this bad now, I can’t imagine how I will be at the wedding! I love my fiance and am so excited to be husband and wife. I just never expected to be single handedly solving the drought problem CA always seems to have. Is anyone else feeling like this?

I’ve always been a crier, so I know what it’s like…any chance you’re pregnant? That’s the first thing I thought of when you said it was just recently.

I have noticed that I get a bit more emotional about things as well, especially at weddings (real or on TV/movies) and whenever I hear “our song”. But I think it’s understandable. You’re excited to be sharing your life with someone you actually love. And there are a lot of emotions with that. Planning can be great and horrible from day to day depending on which vendor you spoke too (LOL) and you can be all over the place. It’ll get better with time i’m sure.

It’s probably just because you can relate. I never used to cry either until i’ve gotten “older”. I’m so old at almost 27 hehe. But I find I can really relate to a lot of things now. I cry at songs about growing up or moving away because I can relate, I cry when people tell stories about there pets dying cause I can relate, I am going to cry during my slideshow during my wedding because the song i’m using is just so personal to me. I’m sure when I lose a family memeber anything that relates to someone dying is gonna make me bawl.

Thank GOD it’s not just me! Haha! I have been such a ridiculous teary mess lately. I know that I am a wedding crier by nature, but I have NEVER been a big crier over movies, tv shows, commercials, Disneyland rides (seriously, wtf?)…it’s insane! I know this is a big time, full of a lot of changes, but I sure I hope we get back to normal pretty soon!
I also have the anxiety of how emotional I will be at the wedding…I don’t want to be one of those brides who is crying so much she can barely say her vows!

I am totally not a crier either but the past 3 months I seem to cry at anything and everything (and nope I am not prego). I never expected planning a wedding would be this emotionally draining but from what I have read on some of the blogs this is pretty common.

Oh my goodness! Can I say that about 6 months before and after my wedding, I was a teary mess! I couldn’t go to another wedding and not bawl as I saw the bride coming down the aisle! It didn’t matter if I was better friends with the groom! I was ridiculous! I think it’s just the excitement, anticipation and the stress leading up to the day, and then all of that washing away after it’s passed. Make sure you bring some tissues or a hanky the day of! And wear waterproof mascara!!

Thanks everyone! I am definitely not prego but I seem to be getting a snapshot of that life! I do think the stress has a lot to do with it. Like soontobewalsh said depending on which vendor I talk to changes my mood 🙂 With the fact that I am being pulled in so many directions coupled with the fact of the emotions from the fact that it is OUR wedding I think I am on emotional overload. Taking deep breaths packing a load of hankies and daily testing which waterproof mascara performs the best under pressure 😉

I’m so glad to hear it’s not just me!!! I’m a big cryer anyway, but during the course of planning the wedding, it’s gotten way worse. The closer the day gets, the worse I get. I mean, it’s really ridiculous. This is why I love Weddingbee! Any time I feel like a crazy bride to be, I can come here and feel better and less like it’s just me!

God I’ve so been there girl. I wasn’t a crier until I met my fiance and when we got serious hello flood gates. So far the wedding planning hasn’t gotten me in tears, but I fully expect that I’ll bawl like a baby as my dad sees me for the first time and when he walks me up that aisle. And don’t even get me started on the vows. I know I’m going to be a big cry baby on the day of.

I felt like that, too! I cried just talking or thinking about the wedding, every sappy movie, commerical, etc, when it got close. During the wedding I teared up a bit during the first look, and then when I was walking down the aisle, but I wasn’t too teary during the vows, which surprised me. I think once you’re in the moment, you’re enjoying it too much. I truly thought I’d blubber the entire ceremony, but didn’t. Don’t worry about it! Even if you do, you’re allowed to–it’s your day and it’s a very emotional time!

Wow so it is normal, i’ve been very emotional too as well, a week ago we went to buy a pregnancy test just to make sure even though Im on the pill but it was negative. I think with all the wedding drama and stress it makes us vulnerable to our own selves, we’re women I guess we just have to embrace it
