    It took a little bit longer for everyone to get their hair and makeup done than we planned and we still had to get to the venue and set up some things, but it wasn’t that big of a deal. It got my adrenaline going! Wink

    Okay I didn’t vote because I fit into multiple categories on your poll. πŸ™‚ Darling Husband and I had the most beautiful wedding day, but like you said it is a VERY overwhelming day!!

    1. There were a few hiccups which included some vendor issues that caused me to have a bit of a meltdown early in the morning. I took a few minutes to myself to cry it out and then moved on.

    2. I cried because I hated my hair which definitely seems silly now, especially because after I messed with it a bit it turned out fine. I was just frustrated that I had a certain vision in my head and when I looked in the mirror I did not look/feel like the me I wanted to be. (Does that make sense?!)

    3. I also cried during our first look and throughout the entire ceremony, mostly because I was overwhelmed. Too many emotions at once and they manifested themselves as tears!

    Basically, I cried all day. Most of it was happy tears though, like when we returned to the hotel room later that night. I started bawling and telling Darling Husband that I was just soooooo happy we were married. Yikes. πŸ˜‰

    I cried during one of the speeches when my beloved grandfather who passed away last year was mentioned.

    @Mrs. Coyote:  #3 – I did this exactly at my BFFs wedding!  I was sooo excited as we lined up to walk in and suddenly I felt like crying and that feeling persisted through the entire ceremony.  I am NOT normally like that!

    OP I didn’t vote because I haven’t gotten married yet but I feel like I’m going to be a moments away from a mini meltdown if any-single-thing even attempts to go wrong.  I’ve worked to hard for this and you only get one wedding day (ideally…)!

    @mchitt329:  Haha, I am not a crier either so everyone was shocked when I cried ALL DAY and they didn’t really know what to do with me since I’m normally not THAT girl. I will say that a lot of little things went wrong, but at a certain point I was just too overjoyed to care. All I could do was smile at my husband like a giddy teenager. πŸ˜€

    I feel like it’s totally normal for brides to have a mini meltdown! No matter how small the wedding, it’s an incredible experience to get married, and emotions are running high. I’d be surprised if I DONT cry over something silly at my wedding!

    I only cried out of happiness that day πŸ™‚ I woke up and cried because I was so excited, and then cried a little throughout the wedding/reception.


    I did have a tiny meltdown, however… we were trying to leave the hotel to go to the venue and all of a sudden, people needed to ask me questions ALL AT ONCE. I’m talking, like, 20 people. What was more frustrating was that we were just trying to pay to check out of our room (shared with the BM’s on the night before), but it took like 20 minutes because people couldn’t stop for a minute and let us finish up.

    Also – everyone didn’t know how to get to the venue. Which was 10 minutes away. Okay, fine, but they ALL had smartphones with map capabilities – which is how Darling Husband and I found it in the first place! Ugh, I lost my mind for a few minutes because I didn’t understand why people couldn’t just look up directions instead of waiting for me specifically to tell them how to get there. Thanks, guys πŸ˜›

    I’m usually a massive drama queen but I was calm and happy on my birthday. No melt-downs here!

    Yes! I had a major meltdown. While the night before there was a few things that still needed to get finished up, so we did not get much sleep. Our first mistake. Then I didin’t eat much and didn’t feel well all morning. Second mistake. Well I planned to do my own hair, just curly and nothing too crazy … but my sister offered and she does hair good so I let her do it. Third mistake. I did not like it at all and needed to be ready for pictures in about 30 minutes. It was a disaster, I was crying and yelling. It wasn’t really her fault, just my hair did not turn out how I wanted. Everyone was trying to help but I just wanted to be alone for a few minutes. My mom thankfully brought in my soon to be husband, and he calmed me down and that was what helped me get over it. I realized it wasn’t that big of a deal and did a few things to fix it. Looking back at the pictures I actually like how it turned out, plus every bride needs one bridezilla moment, right?! And of course there were a few times that I cried because of happiness πŸ™‚

    Darling Husband & I both got pretty upset with our DJ at the reception. The ceremony music was perfect and he managed to get all the slow dance songs right, but the rest was a complete mess. He was playing dance songs during dinner, he didn’t play the music he was supposed to play before the ceremony when people were coming in (although we didn’t realize this until after because we weren’t there) and he played four songs in a row from our do not play list. We tried to talk to him about it and he seemed understanding, but then he just kept playing songs that we had not requested. And now I regret getting so upset about it, because it sort of ruined the last part of the wedding for both of us. It didn’t help that my dress was incredibly uncomfortable and my petticoat got all turned around under my dress so the tulle was cutting into my legs. Also, Darling Husband got a little drunk and I couldn’t get him to leave the reception. So I didn’t have my meltdown until the end of the night and I think it had a lot to do with being overwhelmed by the whole day and being exhausted.

    It was still an amazing day.

    ETA: Surprisingly, I didn’t cry at all on our wedding day. I think I got all my tears out the day before and at the rehearsal dinner. Everything went pretty smoothly until the whole DJ thing, but I didn’t cry, I just got pissed.

    I had a mini-meldown right around group picture time (before the ceremony and cocktail hour) because everyone was late arriving and it seriously cut down our picture time!!

    Mostly happy tears during the ceremony, I did cry a little at our reception because my uncle died a few years ago and I was sad he couldn’t be there with us.

    OK, I feel “mini-meltdown” and “did you cry on your wedding day” are totally different!  So I voted wrong – I did not see the title of the poll, I only went by the title of the post.


    I cried near the end of our vows when she pronounced us husband and wife, but I did not have a melt-down.  I am not a melt-down type of person.
