    I did.  My eyes welled up the second I walked into the church, but I managed to keep it together.  Then my friend Kim, who is an opera singer, had planned to sing a song for us.  I didn’t pick out a song, I just told her to surprise me.  She sang one note and I knew instantly what song it was and burst into tears.  It’s my favorite song ever and it I never thought to use it because it’s not wedding-y.  But it was just so special and thoughtful.

    I held it up good until I reached the end of the aisle, as soon as I was close enough to see my FI and the priest my eyes were tearing up bad but all I kept telling myself was that I had just finished having the best make-up job ever with MAC lashes and I didnt want it hanging over my eyes so I was fine as soon as I held FI’s hands.

    Nope! I grinned all day. No tears. I’m a big crier so I expected that I would. I even cry at weddings on TV.

    I knew I’d be okay unless my dad cried – and he was smiling all the way down the aisle so I was too 🙂 I definitely teared up and you can hear my voice wavering during our vows, but no full-out crying during the ceremony.

    Husband and I both cried a little bit during our first look, and I cried during my Maid/Matron of Honor and my sisters’ speeches at the reception.

    I think I will cry when I see my dad. He came to my final fitting and we practiced walking together with me in my dress, he squeezed my hand as we were walking and I felt a huge lump in my throat. My dad is not a very emotional person so to feel him squeeze my hand was so touching, I know it hit him just then that I was getting married.

    I think I absolutely would have if we didn’t have a first look – which was when my tears were flowing. 🙂 I’ll be covering it during my recaps. I did have tears in my eyes as I walked down the aisle but during the ceremony itself, I managed to keep it together. Shocking.

    My husband and I both cried, but it wasn’t visible. We were both holding back pretty hard, so the most that anyone could see was some lower-lip quivering for a few moments on my part.

    I am not an emotional person so I really didnt think I would and I didnt but I thought my husband would and to my surprise he didnt. The shocker for me was his older brother, we looked over at him and he was crying like a baby lol

    I agree with others, I was looking at my husband and smiling.  He really kept me calm.  We also just did very traditional vows so it wasn’t terribly hard to get through.

    The only time I almost teared up was when we did our “guest declaration of support”.  We turned to face our family and friends and it was REALLY overwhelming to see everyone there to support us.

    I laughed, well, giggled the whole time while bouncing with excitment.

    I’m not getting marriend until next year but am so worried I will end up crying. It’s good to see stories of other people who thought they would cry but ended up not doing it.
