I think I will!  I watched a sample video of a stranger walking down the aisle yesterday and got teary just thinking about it.

I cried more thinking about it than when I was actually walking down. For the first half of the walk, you’re more in complete shock of everyone looking at you. Then as soon as I saw him, I had a hard time keeping it together. I had to look at the floor and gather myself and then look at him again. I cried a little but avoided the ugly cry!

I actually didn’t cry at all during our first look, the pictures, or the whole ceremony.  I got a little choked up saying my vows, but I didn’t cry till right after the recessional and then all of a sudden it hit me and i cried!

I didn’t cry while I was walking down the aisle. I was grinning like a fool! The only time I got teary was when he was saying his vows and then I had to say mine after! My pastor emphasized the “and CRY with you” part of the vows and everyone just started laughing that I got over my tears. 🙂

I thought I would but I didn’t.  I actually just smiled a lot walking down the aisle and during the ceremony although I did tear up during his vows.

I’m choosing music that is a bit more upbeat instead of slow and sappy so that hopefully it will help eliminate tears a bit.  Especially for my mom.  She tends to be an emotional wreck. Haha

We did a first look and I felt very nervous until I saw him and he told me how beautiful I looked. Until then I was feeling self conscious about my dress, my hair, my makeup, everything. I needed him to reassure me so I’m so thankful for that first look.

Going down the aisle, I wasn’t emotional at all. For some reason I felt like I was on stage with so many eyes on us. Million things were going through my head at the same time: if all the guests made it in time, what people were wearing (not that it mattered, I was just watching the crowd as they were watching me), how the flowers looked, whether the string quartet was playing the right song, whether the sun would stay out or if it would get chilly… Literally, I felt like I put together a whole production and now I’m on stage seeing all the pieces come together for the first time and just hoping everything turns out nice.

@meliss: We did a first look too and although we only had a few minutes I thought it helped a lot for him to tell me how beautiful I looked.  It also relaxed me for the rest of the day and nothing stressed me out after that.

I really can not see me crying.  Grinning like an idiot, sure, but I can’t see me crying.  Of course, we have a really non-tradational view of the whole thing, so that’s probably why.  Besides, we’re married in every sense and meaning of the word except legally.  🙂

I think I might! I’m gonna have a really hard time keeping it together, because not only am I going to be nervous/estatic/happy/joyful, but my mom who has been a single parent alsmot my emtire life, is probably gonna bawl, which will make me cry! and my brother is giving me away, and I know he will cry since I’m his little sister. So, I’m going to try my hardest not to look like an idiot, but it might happen. haha
