Did you cry on your wedding day married bees?
I am a very emotional (bi-polar) person. just thinking about our wedding makes me tear up… any advice for NOT crying at my own wedding??? I was thinking maybe sappy movie the night before to get it all out ahead of time but I dont want the red puffy eyes in the morning…

I have the same problem, I cry about everything sappy – songs are the worst. I think i’m going to have a few mimosas that morning just to get giggly, then maybe it will be ok. I am kind of treating my leading up months as training months, I listen to those songs, watch those movies and then try to avoid the ugly cry. lol I hope another bride posts with a better way!

I didn’t. He did.
I cried when he proposed though.

I am a very emotional person and I fully expected to bawl my eyes out during our wedding…but I held it together. There were a number of times my eyes got watery, but they never spilled over.
Haha It might sounds silly, but I’m really proud of the fact that I didn’t turn into my usual blubbering self. 🙂

Yes! I cried when he said his personalized vows to me. The officient let him go first which was totally unfair! 😛

I am a sap at movies, but I’m only got choked up (no tears) just as I was about to walk down the aisle. I don’t have much suggestions, but it might be easier if you do a first look, so walking down the aisle isn’t quite as emotional.

I usually never cry at things like this and I was bawling all morning at my wedding. We were late starting out in the morning (like REALLY late). I made the mistake of assuming 6 girls could get ready together and be on time….By the time we left the house, we were already 40 minutes late to our garden photoshoot before the ceremony, so I bawled the entire way in the car from the stress, anger and frusteration….
Then after I calmed down enough to take some pictures and we headed to the hotel for our ceremony, the minute I started walked down the aisle with my parents, I started crying again through almost the entire ceremony…. It also didn’t help to see all my bridesmaids and even some of our groomsmen crying along side us.
Honestly though, I don’t know what I can suggest to not cry. I went in thinking that nothing sappy like that will make me cry and…well, obviously that didn’t turn out that way I planned. I will suggest you bring makeup to do some touch ups, especially extra eyelash glue if you’re planning on wearing fake ones cause mine fell out right after the ceremony was over cause I was crying so much….

Yes I definitely cried. I cried at our rehersal dinner when I was thanking everyone for being a part of our special day, and hid my face behind my husband and tried to get him to continue the thank yous, but he’s really shy and just waited for me to gather myself again!!
Also, I watched the video a friend took of the ceremony and I was smiling as the doors were opening for me to walk down the aisle, but I think I was just so overwhelmed that I immediately burst into ugly cry face! I cried the whole way down the aisle, and I remember my uncle (who walked me down the aisle) say “slow down” because I was walking way too fast. As soon as I got to my husband, he handed me some tissue he kept in his pocket, knowing I would need them. It was all very sweet, but got some ugly pictures of me walking down the aisle lol. I was fine for the rest of the day 🙂

I was ready to cry, I even used waterproof mascara but nothing. I really thought I would be a crying baby but I didnt. I had a few tears trickle but that was it. I was so surprised.

I didn’t cry during the ceremony, but I had a really embarassing meltdown after when I confronted DH about forgetting to give out the corsages and bouttiniers I had hand made. I made a big deal the night before about them getting to the right people, I tried to do it myself, bu Darling Husband insisted that he could do it. In the end, all the guys ended up with the wrong ones.
It’s so silly now, and totally not something worth crying over, but with all the other emotions running on full steam that day, it was the straw that broke the camel’s back. I’m lucky only a handful of people were there to witness it.

I thought I would cry, but I was WAY too happy for that… until our last dance. Then we both cried like fools!

I cried, he cried, his dad cried, my Maid/Matron of Honor and bridesmaid cried, half the guests cried, and even some of the groomsmen choked up a little.
I am typically an ugly crier, but usually it’s because I try to fight it and my face gets all red and puffy. I cry prettier if I don’t fight the urge and just let it go… maybe that would help you too?

Are you going to do a first look? I am **SO** glad we did, otherwise I would have been a big old mess! I got the big emotions out of the way early on, just the two of us. Spending time with him beforehand doing photos, I was really happy and calm, and was able to walk down the aisle feeling strong and confident! You can see it in the photos-what a difference- so glad the walking-towards-him-for-first-look were not the walking-down-the-aisle photos.
I did start to tear up during the ceremony a couple of times-luckily I had a hanky. (made via Etsy by FrostyAugust -she’s currently on maternity leave, but you’d have time- she was quick and inexpensive) Darling Husband had it in his tux pocket, and twice during the ceremony I had to whisper “I need the hanky!” One time he blotted the tears at the corners of my eyes, which almost made some of our guests bawl.

I didn’t cry at the wedding (maybe a tear in my eye though) but I cried during one of the speeches at the reception.

Yes, I ugly cried when I read his letter the morning of our wedding, I ugly cried in my dressing room before my dad walked me down the aisle, I teared up walking down the aisle, and I teared up at the reception. They were all happy tears because it was the happiest day of my life so far.
