Yeah, I cried.  From what I can tell from the pictures, I wasn’t a terrible mess, but I was wiping tears away throughout the entire ceremony!

Actually, my husband cried way more than I did.  He was crying when I was walking down the aisle.  When he met my parents in the aisle, he shook my dad’s hand, and my dad whispered, "Pete, you have to stop crying.  You look terrible!"  Lol.  🙂  And he didn’t stop until the ceremony ended.  It was really sweet.

When we were leaving for our honeymoon and I was saying goodbye to my syblings, that was the moment i lost it. I cried there, and even more on our way to the hotel… I can’t think of an specific reason, i was just too excited and overwhelmed at the end, but in a good way!

I cry at EVERY wedding I go to, tear up when I see weddings on TV (even the BRIDEZILLAS who get married at the end), soooo yeah I’m thinking I better invest in the hankie and waterproof mascara. I just hope I can keep it together and not get all snotty/sniffly, bc that’s just not attractive. I actually told my Fiance that we can’t write our own vows (even though initially we both wanted to) because I will NOT be able to get through them. I’ve decided that the less speaking I have to do, the better. He might cry a little bit I think. He says he probably will, and if he does I am going to probably lose it. Oh well, that’s what a makeup touch-up bag is for!

I cried when they put my tiara on my head first…then when everyone got out of the limo, I just needed a minute to myself in which I had to pull it together. When I first saw my husband, I also cried…and so did he! Hehe…

Absolutely I will cry.  My younger brother is walking me down the aisle since our dad past away when we were young, and when he got married last year he was the one crying and I feed off his emotion…so it looks like we’ll be the cry babies again.

I didn’t cry!  Well, not during the wedding.  I got a litte misty a couple times, and my voice was a little shaky during my vows, but I made it without bawling.  I was worried, because I am a CRIER!

I DID cry before the recieving line, and a LOT during the reception when people were making speeches, (and my dad and I were both a mess during the father-daughter dance!), but I made it through the ceremony, so that’s what mattered to me!

I thought for sure I would cry…every other wedding I’ve been in, I’ve cried.  But I didn’t!  During the walk down the aisle and our vows I got really teary eyed and my voice was shaky, but no tears.  I was so caught up in the excitement that I don’t think it really hit me.  Now, the next day when we looked back and talked about how blessed we were to have such wonderful family and friends to share the day with, I cried!  And watching the video for the first time, I cried.  But not on the actual day!

I cried a bit during our ceremony — my aunt cried through one of our readings and totally got me started — and during my sister/MOH’s toast.  I am a crier by nature, so I thought I’d cry more, but I was just so happy all day.  Walking down the aisle, dancing with my new husband, greeting old friends and distant family — I was all smiles.  It was FUN!

I thought I would, but I was grinning ear to ear most of the day.  I was so happy I could burst.

I’m not a crier. I just don’t get the crying thing. Never have been.

I am tearing up reading this… I cry at everything… BUT like someone above said, when I’m wound up with anticipation and I’m the center of attention, I have kind of an out of body experience.  Fiance proposed in front of our friends and I loved the proposal, but I was so NOT in the moment, I didn’t cry til like 8 hours later, sobs of happiness. And I think the wedding will be the same.  I’m sure I’ll tear up a bit seeing him and during the vows, but what will be hilarious is on the wedding night, probably post-consummation he he he, I’ll probably just sob from happiness and relief and being overwhelmed in general.  It’ll freak him out, I should probably warn him now!!

I think I cried like 6 times on my wedding day (happy tears only, of couse)! 

– reading the card he had delivered to me a few hours before the wedding
– when we first saw each other before the ceremony
– walking down the aisle
– exchanging vows
– during at least 2-3 toasts

I am a big cryer. I read a love poem that I imagined reading as my vows, and cried my eyes out. No way I am holding up on the actual day!

I have never been to a wedding that i have NOT cried at!  I have a feeling I will be misty walking down the aisle, waterworks during vows, and teary during toasts.  I am such a sap!

All happy tears though.
