    I wasn’t a blubbering mess, but I totally cried. I didn’t think I would, either.

    I mostly teared up when I saw my hubs emotional…and when my cousin was crying during the father:daughter dance, but mostly we were just smiling with huge, goofy grins!

    Amazingly enough- nope, I didn’t.  I was sure I would!  Even my husband tearing up when he saw me, I was just happy and couldn’t stop smiling.  There was only one part when our officiant told a story about my husband’s grandmother, who we were both very close to before she passed away that I almost cried, but I recovered- our vows were the next part which was a little rough. 

    My big advice is that if you are worried about crying during your vows- have your officiant tell a funny story (if you can) that way you will be laughing just before your vows and not crying.  Makes talking a whole lot easier 🙂

    Yes, as much as I tried to stop myself I cried during our vows, and fortunately I was still able to speak.  Apparently I everyone else cry, but thankfully I recovered for the blessing of the rings.  I think I just had to get it out.

    My minister was smart and made me say the vows privately (with my fiancee) in front of him the day before the ceremony.  I literally sobbed through them.  But then the next day I didn’t cry at all!

    I voted no because I did not cry until after everything when the priest made us go up to our grandparents and parents and give them hugs/kisses for the first time as a married couple (at the very end of the ceremony in front of everyone…kinda awkward). When I hugged my dad it felt so emotional and he let out a quiet little sob and then I couldn’t hold in the tears, so then I was crying the whole walk back down the aisle!

    I didn’t cry, but was sweating a lot. A drop of sweat rolled into my eye (OUCH!) so I pretended to be tearing up so I could ask hubby for a tissue. Apparently my high school drama geekery paid off, because lots of people commented on how sweet it was that I teared up!

    Interesting!! I’m glad to see that lots of would-be criers held it together! I would love to not cry (like until he and I are alone together later in the night), but I highly doubt I won’t. Y’all give me hope though! 😉

    I THOUGH I was going to be waterworks.  Before the wedding, I could hardly listen to Canon in D without crying!  I was very teary throughout, but never had a full blown cry.  To keep the tears away, I smiled a lot instead : ) !

    When I was walking down the aisle, my dad said I was “shaking like a leaf”.  My husband said my hair was standing on end by the time I got to the end of the aisle and I was very teary….he didn’t know what to do so he kissed me!  That made everyone (including me) laugh so then I held it together better.

    I have no idea why I was so nervous!  I like to think that since it was nervous energy/nervous excitement!

    During our rehearsal the priest made us say our vows and I, along with all of my bridesmaids and Mom, bawled like babies!  But during our wedding, I didn’t cry at all.  My voice waivered a bit, but I held it together!  We just smiled the entire time, it was the best part of the day.
