    I always thought I would cry, but on our wedding day I was so excited and so happy and there was not a tear in sight.  I got choked up while we were reading our vows we wrote but other then that I was just too damn excited to cry!

    I’m not a cryer. I thought I might cry a little, but litterally I was grinning from ear to ear the entire time. I was so excited to be getting married hahha.

    I am a cryer…. I cry at everything. I tear up thinking about our ceremony… I have an amazing make up artist, who will also be a guest…I am not going to sweat it, lol!

    My only advice, is fight the ‘ugly cry’, racking sobs are never attractive, LOL

    I think you shouldn’t have to think about it!

    If you feell emotional and you cry, no one will think its tacky.

    If you don’t cry, no one will think your heart’s made of stone.

    Just go with the flow of your heart!

    Since we eloped, it was a quick 5 minute (if that) ceremony. I was perfectly fine until right at the end before we kissed…he got teary-eyed and then I did too. 🙂


    Let your emotions go where they will!

    I hope I don’t cry!  An elegant tear or two would be just fine, sweet even… but after I cry, I look downright awful.  The face is red and puffy and even once the redness goes away, my eyes look weird (still a lil puffy) and it is NOT attractive.  But it does make my eyes looks MEGA blue.  I’m hoping, when the day comes, I can keep it down to watery eyes!

    I’m scared to cry, since I’ve just recently gotten to know the more sensitive side of me. If I envision myself walking down the aisle, I feel like crying.. If I practice the words I will say to my FH at the altar, I start tearing up. I’m not scared about my makeup, but I’m not comfortable with everyone looking at me cry.. 75% of my guests aren’t american, and they would not see crying as cute or sweet, but tacky. When I cry, I cry rivers… I’m going to watch The Lion King and try the tongue pressure on the roof of the mouth. Hahaha.

    I don’t think I’ll cry.  I hope I won’t.  I don’t like being emotional in that way in front of so many people.  In general, though, I don’t cry at things like weddings.  I cry just when I’m sad.

    I didn’t cry but I did get teary eyed. I was emotional, that’s for sure. You could hear it in my voice

    I cry over everything.  When I’m happy, when I’m sad, when I’m angry.  I cry if someone else cries because they are happy or sad or whatever.  So needless to say I’ll probably bawl the entire day of the wedding.  I just hope I get a few good pictures without racoon eyes and a drippy nose.

    @sayanything:  Haha! I am such an ugly cryer too… I never think about the faces I make and i’m naturally very pronounced with my expressions. Its awful. 

    I will be crying regardless. My fiance and I are long distance right now and I will be SO SO happy to be married and not have to be apart anymore. *tears!
