Nope I didn’t! I just had a blast.

I thought for sure I would cry. I would tear up whenever I’d listen to the song I was going to use for my processional or the father daughter dance song. I’m one of those people that cries for sappy commercials and sometimes for no reason at all. I cry when I see someone else who’s crying, whether it’s someone I know, a tv character, or even just a stranger. It’s contagious!

And yet I didn’t shed one single tear that day. I never felt nervous or anything, just very calm. So all of you criers out there might be surprised!

We laughed.  A lot.  That said, there was a moment when our officiant (a dear friend) welcomed everyone and read our responses to questions she asked each of us separately prior to the wedding.  It was the only part of the ceremony we didn’t know about and it was really touching.  I cried a little bit (thankfully, small happy tears and not a big messy cry). 

I thought I might cry, so i tucked a hankie in my dress.  What I wasn’t thinking was how I would get at said hanky in the moment.  Of course, that dilemma made me laugh, so it all worked out.

Pre-wedding, I cried at anything wedding related – vows, videos, photos.  It was seriously getting ridiculous.  The stress and strong emotions leading up to a wedding can be powerful.

I think it’s a toss up. I cried when he first told me he loved me, and I cried when I first realized I wanted to marry him, but not when he proposed. I think it’s because when I’m the center of attention (like I was in that restaurant during the proposal, ha), I get stressed and freeze up. If he would have proposed at home, I would have been a big blubbering mess.

So no, I probably won’t cry. But then again, who knows?

I was a bridesmaid in a wedding recently where the bride was fine but the maid of honor was just BAWLING throughout the entire ceremony! She said she was the same way at her own wedding. Some people can’t take the sweetness!

I’m so scared I will! I get overwhelmed, I cry. I need to start reading the vows over and over so they don’t seem too "new" to me.

Well, I like to think I wasn’t a mess, but there was definitely a lot of crying. We planned for 13 months, which seemed like forever, and I was very calm and collected on the day of. But as soon as we got to the venue, I started crying saying "It’s finally here!" Then I cried walking down the aisle, while saying my vows, exchanging rings, basically the whole ceremony except for the prayer and reading! I didn’t cross over into sobbing, thank goodness, but there are a lot of pictures where I’m making funny faces with my eyes closed!

I know I will cry, so will my mom, but I’m hoping to bring tears of joy to my fiance’s eyes.  If he cries, I imagine I’ll be crying even more!

I’m not usually a crier – but my dad can be. (The man actually cried when I won track states).  And if he loses it, I’m a goner.  I told him he has to listen to my processional song to help get him used to hearing it – so I loaded it on his iPod.

I cried briefly when we saw each other for the first time.  Then I really fought tears when I was walking down the aisle.  People said I looked more like I was giggling!  I haven’t seen a video yet, but I’m sure it looked funny 🙂

I was a big sobbing baby during the entire civil ceremony a few months ago. It’s all on tape, I was sniffing so loud and it’s soooo embarrassing. 

I’m sure I’ll shed a few tears during the ceremony at the wedding coming up, and if we do a whole big fancy staged first look I’ll tear up then I’m sure.

I didn’t cry during the ceremony.  I cried before we got to the venue.  I had a dress crisis (strapless dress that was too large).  I kept telling myself not to cry, and finally just decided that if I didn’t cry and get it over with it would happen at some point later.  It lasted about 10 min then I got over it.

During the ceremony I have this very serious face in pictures, I was trying not to giggle.

I was so worried about this because historically, I’m a huge crier.  I’ve cried at funerals for people I’ve never met, commericals–you name it.  I was so worried that I would be a sobbing mess on the day of the wedding.  However, I didn’t shed one tear!  I think I was just really happy and excited the whole time, I never actually cried.  I got a little choked up while saying my vows, but I didn’t cry at all.
