My husband sobbed LOUDLY throughout the whole thing. Couldn’t even hear the reading. The celebrant looked pretty alarmed as did the guests. It was a little bit embarrassing, and the photos look pretty weird too!!! We laugh about it now though!!

shadesofbay : wow you’re right this is silly and immature and shows you dont know your partner at all! My FH and I are great at showing our emotions to each other but in public we sometimes tense up. I could definitely see him wanting to cry and possibly even crying but if he doesnt I know its likely to do standing in front of 130 people so his emotions will easily automatically get themselves together. He’s a private person like me, we show our feelings to each other, not put on a show for an audience. Grow up.

Of all the weddings I’ve been to, I’ve never seen the groom cry when the bride walks down the aisle. I don’t think that’s anything to get worked up over…

My husband didn’t cry when I walked down the aisle and I felt 100% fine with that. Both of us had our eyes well up a bit when we were saying our vows but neither of us full on cried.

This would be like a guy saying he was upset if his fiance didn’t cry when he proposed. Everyone is different, and so many factors play into how you express emotions, especially at your wedding. You should appreciate each other for being your authentic selves in the moment.
I personally have only ever actually cried about happy emotions while hormonal from pregnancy. Did not cry at my wedding. Neither did my husband. I think maybe our mothers did. To each, his own.

shadesofbay : I’d have been a little weirded out if he cried, actually. It’s all about personality styles and you can’t force your own on your husband. Neither of us cried.

Darling Husband just had a massive grin and I got a bit tearful with a big grin too which is normal for us shadesofbay :

This is a very odd thing to be disappointed about, especially since your wedding was months ago. You need to get over it. Marriage is going to be rough for you if you continuously get upset because your unrealistic expectations are not met by your husband (who probably has no clue you’re upset he didn’t cry!)

shadesofbay : I’m trying to prepare myself for the fact that he isn’t gonna cry. He just isn’t a crier. Never had been never will be. I know full well that it is not a reflection of how much he loves me so hopefully my irrational side doesn’t manage to fight its way through lol

Those Instagram videos of grooms breaking down have completely ruined expectations for some people I guess 🙄🙄🙄

Neither of us cried. We smiled at each other the entire time. This is a shot of my husband as I came down the aisle. I love seeing how happy he looks 🙂 🙂

I cry at everything and didnt cry at my wedding lol. He didnt either, but I think he was surprised that I didnt lol. I dont think this is a big deal.

Dh got glossy-eyed/verging on tearing up, but didn’t actually CRY. And that was perfect. He was able to swallow and pull himself together without anyone watching really noticing, but I saw his reaction. He is a VERY stoic kind of guy, so it was a bigger reaction than I had anticipated. Had he done nothing but smile, I would have been equally as happy and never thought twice about it. It seems an odd thing to obsess about really…

I felt relieved. We were both smiling ear to ear that’s my preference to tears 🙂

Neither of us cried, not walking down the aisle, and not during the first look. I teared up a bit during our vows and my husband laughed at me (in a nice way, like awwww you’re so cute and emotional).
sparkosity : I was scrolling by on my phone and legitimately thought “wait, she’s married to Benedict Cumberbatch?!” before looking more closely 😀
