MadameX:  nope….and didn’t cry at our recent wedding either. DH had a couple of tears when I walked up the aisle but I was just happy, happy!

We both got teary and kind of shaky, but mostly there was just smiles and laughter!  It was the same thing at the wedding…we each had moments where we were a bit teary eyed, but neither of us broke down or anything.

I also knew he was going to propose eventually, just wasn’t sure when. But when he did and  I saw the look he had in his eyes everything else just stopped and I felt very shocked and got really shaky because I just couldn’t believe it. I’m pretty sure I didn’t cry, I was just speechless for a bit. Congratulations!

I cried like a big baby.  Our friend was the server at the restaurant when he proposed and walked over and said “Hey you big baby another table just asked me if you got dumped! Put a smile on your face!!!”  It probably didn’t help that I was telling the poor guy I hated him while he was proposing. Haha the ladies who asked her that actually walked over before they left to congratulate us.  Good memories 🙂

MadameX:  I didn’t exactly cry, but I had very teary eyes and was SO happy. I had never seen him smile so big and didn’t expect that he would get down on one knee so that was very surprising and a tear jerker for me lol

I knew it was coming, and I just had a huge smile for most of the next three days.

I didn’t cry during the ceremony either (and it’s not hard for tv and movies to make me cry) but I cried a bunch when he sang me a song during our afterparty.

I cried almost instantly. That’s who I am lol. I knew that a proposal was going to happen within a couple months, but he completely surprised me that night and I couldn’t help but cry. We both teared up, actually.

I cried when he proposed – I was completely taken by surprise! I am known for being a crier at sentimental things so I fully expected to blub all through our wedding ceremony, but I just got a bit tearful during one of the songs and otherwise was fine! I was generally just calm and happy all day and I only really got emotional during the last dance of the night.

I balled my eyes out and my now Fiance was worried I was going to hyperventilate and pass out.

No tears but my hands were definitely shaking.

I sure did. And our proposal wasn’t particularly romantic or anything, so I’m actually surprised that I reacted that way.

I’m a crier so I broke down like I had thought. I was just surprised to see him getting emotional. He kept stopping what he was saying so he could breathe and hold back his tears…it was sweet.

I had an idea the proposal was coming, but I didn’t expect it in the moment he did it at all! He surprised me by taking me ziplining.  This was early in the afternoon, so I thought that if he was going to propose it would be later that day.  But I got to the end of a 1,000 foot zipline, turned around, and there he was on 1 knee!! 🙂

I cry so easily all the time, but surprisingly didn’t cry in that moment.  I just had so much adrenaline and I was so completely surprised in that moment that the tears didn’t come – it was more like extra adrenaline when I realized what was happenning!  There was a photographer taking pictures, and when we got done they showed us the pictures on a big screen.  When I saw the moment he proposed, that is when I cried – I think that is when it hit me that we were really engaged!! 🙂

I’m tearing up now just thinking about how wonderful it was! But I totally understand what you mean.  I expected to cry a lot when it happened, but I had a different reaction, too.
