My mom cried when I walked down the aisle, and probably throughout the rest, though I didn’t see. Dad was… emotional. I don’t think he cried, but he teared up a little. I didn’t notice my in laws, but if i had to guess Father-In-Law cried and Mother-In-Law didn’t, she just isn’t a crier really. But they were all very happy and moved by the wedding.

YES!  My mom got teary but my dad did cry.  That might be because I couldnt stop choking up and crying so he did too.  I saw a video of the ceremony and he keeps wiping his eyes – I joked around with him and he said there was a bug in his eye 🙂

I think my parents got tearly (they really aren’t the crying type), but Mr. Peeps parents lost it.

Nope, but I think his dad was struggling to keep it in… It was really sweet and our photographer got quite the picture of it 🙂

My dad said he did a bit of crying when nobody was around so that it didn’t count. I don’t think my mom or Mother-In-Law did. My grandma on the other hand… heh, but she cries at everything

I don’t remember any tears, but when the minister said “for richer or poorer” my step-dad clapped. LOL Seriously. Just a little clap, but he was apparently very happy to have somebody else footing the bill now.

Both our dads cried, both moms were cool as a cucumber!

This is really a MAJOR fear for me.  When my son and dil were married..I cried before the wedding, during the wedding and after the wedding. I was happy but way emotional.  It’s funny because I am the Mom who NEVER cries…tough as nails. Now my only daughter is getting married and I find myself teary while we are planning. I don’t want to be a mess on her wedding day but I don’t know what to do.  Any ideas?

None of our parents cried. I did have an aunt who cried and I started a little when I saw her. I don’t think I expected them to and probably would have been really surprised if they did. 

I might have to think about this to be certain, but the only time I’ve ever seen my dad cry was when he and my mom renewed their vows on their 25th anniversary.

I wonder if they’ll cry???? Oh gosh. I hope my mom doesn’t because she’ll totally make me start crying too.

Everyone cried at my wedding!

My sister was a mess at the rehearsal and my mom and Mother-In-Law and SIL definetly cried, too.

My mom cried as she was helping me get my derss on in the morning. At the ceremony my SIL did a reading of the Union, while full on bawling. It was very heartfelt and touching, and she got everyone else in the crowd crying to.

I never worried too much before hand about crying at my wedding, and I think all the tears just made it all the more special. As long as you the bride can pull yourself together, life will go on.

Both my parents cried.  My mom cried happy tears at everything because she is an emotional person.

My dad cried mostly sad tears because I was leaving to move across the country and he was losing his baby girl.

But I expected them both too.  Mother-In-Law is also very emotional.  She bawled the whole mother/son dance!

I know both of my parents got misty-eyed, not sure about the in-laws, though.
