I’m an ugly, ugly crier. My face gets all splotchy and red, my eyes puff right up, it isn’t pretty. And yet, I cry at movies, hallmark commercials, other people’s weddings, you can be darn sure I’ll be a hot mess during my wedding ceremony. We actually just worked on our ceremony and I am insisting on stuff that requires me to say the least amount of words, knowing I will be blubbering them, not speaking them.
Any other criers out there have any tricks to share to help keep it together?

@littleteapot: I have just decided to cry and let it go. I like you cry at almost anything so I will do what I can to hold back the tears.

I just cried, the video is hilarious, I’m sniffling the entire time haha. I have heard tons of bees say that they mysteriously did not cry on the actual day.

I am the same way! We choose to not “say” our vows. Our rabbi read from our Ketubah! I could not have said a word up there…I would have balled like a baby! I did as soon as we walked back down the aisle! our photographer caught me but thank goodness my face was barried in Fiance chest.

We were both tearing up like crazy, and we just said the standard legal vows! Darling Husband helped me keep it together by squeezing my hands (to give me something else to focus on) and making faces at me, haha.

Oh my gosh, I’m worried about this too. Literally as a start walking down the aisle, no doubt in my mind that I will instantly break out in tears.

I am going to be a mess I cry at everything and Fi said he will probably cry too so atleast we will be a mess together!

I am a total crier – I cry watching random commercials and shows, other people’s weddings and wedding videos, and I cried while practicing my vows with Mr CA/ just thinking about walking down the aisle.
But the day of?? Not one single tear. I have no idea why! I think I was just so caught up in the emotion, excitement, nerves etc of the day that I just didn’t cry at all! so weird. Anyway, I am not saying this happens to everyone, but for me, it was just getting all caught up in the love of the day 🙂 plus, I was super nervous, so my adrenaline was kicking in too!

I’m already nervous about this. Between Fiance and I, we might very well be swimming back down the aisle.

I didn’t cry walking down the aisle, but I had a weird expression on my face the whole time because I was trying hard not to! I realized this at the time, I just couldn’t do anything about it. I regained composure approx. halfway through the ceremony and didn’t have to fight the emotions anymore…willpower!
