I Can’t. Stop. Crying.
My event coordinator mentions how sweet it is that my great grandmother is alive to be at my wedding? I cry.
The cocktail hour caterers’ credit card machine breaks and I have to go to their other store WAY across town when I have 50 other things to do today? I cry.
My two little cousins are THRILLED that I asked them to help with the train of my dress at the wedding? I cry.
I could go on and on.
I REALLY hope I don’t cry on the wedding day. I want to hold it together. Sigh.

I too have been sappy lately.
How about trying to review the wedding in your mind days before tocry it over? Just an idea.

You almost inspired me to start a posting. I feel the same…I’m super weepy as the weddign gets nearer…its either cries of frustration over things not giong smoothly or tears of pure joy that aren’t very convinient.
I wonder how in the HECK I will make it down the isle…or even to the church without destroying my makeup.

You’ll be able to hold it together you’ll see. You need to take a relaxing bath and not think of anything wedding for a few minutes.

Chica, that is sweet. It just means that you can’t wait to marry your love. Of course you will cry on your wedding day, but that is a good thing. Just carry a pretty hanky and grab your mans hand for strength. A week from today you are going to be a MRS!!!! WOOHOOO!!!!

I was a complete mess for AGES leading up to the wedding, and I am now with any mention of anything, happy or sad. But on my wedding day I didn’t really cry… It was stress and nerves leading up to the wedding and then on the day I was just so happy to be getting married that I only cried when he started during my vows. You’ll be fine! Enjoy your day!

Oh I’m so happy others are doing this! I thought I was going crazy crying about everything! You will be so consumed with the wedding you will probably only cry during the ceremony. And it is sweet … I would worry if there was no emotion!

You guy are so sweet….in fact I am tearing up at your supportive responses.
SEE HOW CRAZY I AM???? lol.
Will my makeup totally run? Im getting it professionally done by a MAC artist, so I figure the waterproof eyeliner and mascara should be OK, right?

@Evie19: I have heard that when you dont want to cry you run your tongue on the roof of your mouth. Supposedly its a wedding trick to stop you crying whilst reading your vows!

I cried at everything to the week before, and I mean everything. The day of I woke up and felt so calm and relaxed. Kind of almost in a dream state. Ran around and got everything started at the venue and got started with the hair and make-up. Then it hit me I was about to get married! I teared up for a minute then went on. There were many tears of joy through out the day but no maor crying jag like the week before. I had tisses, and my make up stayed!
So don’t worry it is the stress. You will most likely wake up on your big day a different woman!

@Evie19: I can totally relate to you! I’ve been super weepy now that we’re 10 months away from the wedding. This entire weekend I’ve been so sappy….cried during a movie, cried when an old family friend gave us her mantilla to use for the wedding, cried when we were talking to my FI’s parents about our honeymoon plans, and lastly, cried when my parents gave my Fiance and I our first item for our kitchen, an espresso maker, lol! I’m sure the weepy will continue as we near the wedding date but I know that I cry from either excitement or frustration but more out of excitement. I hope I have less tears for the actual wedding day.

I totally feel with you all!! 6 months are left until our big day in July, and somehow I’m torn between excitement, being overwhelmed, being overtrained and so on. Yesterday my future mother in law celebrated her 70th birthday with family and friends and they all asked us how the preparations are going. While I was thinking the last few weeks “well, we are getting married, ok, no great deal, right?” I was yesterday like “ahhh!!! 6 months to go!!! We have to do this, and that… and we have to choose songs for the church, and what song do we use when we walk down the aisle, and what song for our first dance (well, let’s say dance, but I expect it will be more like a hugging/swaying;-)”. I felt tears when speaking about our honeymoon (we are flying to Mauritius, yeah!), and felt a slight panic attack when talking about my dress (maggie sottero’s isadora marie)! I expect it to be in in February. I ordered is one size bigger ’cause the zipper did not close in the sample size. I know I will freak out when this damn zipper will not go up because I suggested it to order it two sizes bigger while my shop assistant thought that 1 size bigger would do it, the seamstress added that there can be taken out 2cm at each side of the bodice. Deep inside I know everthing will be allright. At the surface it stresses me out! Not that I gained 10lbs the last 5 months;-) But honestly, I’m dying to see and wear my dream dress again. I’m in a strange mood right know, and I think my fiance just can’t understand these moods;-) TO be true, we really can do this in a relaxed way ’cause we are really good in time! So, I think I just have to relax and enjoy the next 6 months:-)) And, Bees, we’ll enjoy wonderfull wedding day, aren’t we? 😉 Even if we are crying tears of joy…..;-)

I actually did pretty well on the wedding day. It was REALLY difficult though.
I was pretty calm most of the day, feeling teary here and there…but the last hour before we went to the church was…omg. Putting on my dress and seeing my dad cry…all my friends getting teary looking at me, etc…I was so close to losing it.
Some tears came out but I didn’t let go. When I got to the church and saw my now Darling Husband, it was another moment when I almost lost it. But somehow I held it in and after the ceremony started I began to relax and feel more “together.”
By the end of the night, when only around 15 of my closest people were left- I started bawling and telling them how much I loved them! It felt SO GOOD!!!
