  • poll: Crying during the Ceremony - Sweet or Tacky?

    Let those tears fall, it's sweet and shows you care.

    Suck it in sister, tears are tacky!

    Stiffle the sniffle, but let one elegant tear fall.

    You aren't going to cry? Is your heart made out of stone?

    My groom LOST IT.  I had been so frazzled leading up to it that I had the cry face when I was walking toward him and then didn’t cry for the rest of the ceremony.  It was weird.

    I didn’t cry at my wedding! I was so focused on getting through the ceremony and being the center of attention (which I hate) that I couldn’t relax until that part was over! I did laugh when DH went to put the wedding band on my finger — he was distracted by that and missed the words the officiant wanted him to repeat and had to ask her to say it again, LOL.

    I do cry at most weddings, though, and I’m pretty sure my sobbing is audible on the video of my brother’s wedding.

    Oh god.  I’m not a super emotional person and we want our wedding to be FUN, not all cry-y.  I’m worried I’ll get all emotional though.  I kind of want to just say “I do” instead of a bunch of self-written vows, so it’ll make me less emotional.  But people do love to hear vows that are a little more meaningful… oh well I have 12 months to figure it out! 🙂

    I have joked that I might need to sew my tear ducts shut before the wedding. I get emotional thinking about walking down the aisle, saying my vows, dancing with Fiance, dancing with my dad, saying my speech, hearing people’s speeches… I hope I don’t cry all day, because I am actually thrilled to marry FI! 

    I have always been very emotional, so it won’t surprise anyone if I do cry, but I hope I can reign it in for pictures sake, because I am a blubbery, splotchy mess when I cry.

    I know I’ll cry but I really want him to cause he doesn’t cry

    I love it when people cry!  Haha, that makes me sounds mean.  But I say you let those tears flow.  It’s sweet!  🙂

    let them flow. I find if you try to hold them in your face will turn red and blotchy 😉

    I cry at other people’s weddings, so I can only imagine I’ll be a weeping wreck at mine. Although, there’s always the chance that I’ll be so stressed or nervous that I’ll forget to cry! I think my dad will cry though, which will probably set me off.

    As to what’s appropriate…let your true feelings show! Emotional honesty is always the way to go (although, keep that concealer and powder compact on hand for a quick touch-up afterwards to avoid the Rudolph look in all your wedding photos).
