I’m just curious, how many brides-to-be get choked up just thinking about their big day? Last night Fiance and I slow danced in our living room to our top 3 first dance picks (to try and narrow it down), and I got emotional just from that. I catch myself getting teary-eyed just thinking about the moment my dad walks me down the isle, exchanging vows, speeches, etc. I feel like I am going to be a hot mess on my actual wedding day! Have any other bees experienced these overwhelming feelings?

@KelsieLea7: Meeee. It’s been a long almost 1.5 years and having 5 months left is unreal. I can’t wait. I’m so excited.

Before my wedding I was an emotional mess. I would get choked up just watching/seeing/hearing anything about weddings! On the day of my own wedding I was the total opposite of the way I’d been the entire engagement!

Me! My Fiance proposed to “Love Like Crazy”, which is one of my favourite songs. We slow danced to it the morning he proposed. SINCE THAT DAY I have not listened to it, and if it comes on the radio or up on the iPod I quickly turn it. It makes me cry and I don’t want to lose any of that emotion before our first dance.
Lame? You know it!
Also, I can no longer watch most bridal shows. Especially that one where that wedding planner man makes the brides day a bajillion times more amazing with suprise after suprise.

My husband got choked up all the time! He would be listening to a song in the car, get all teary, and come home and tell me we had to have that song at our wedding. Stuff like that! He was the one putting our music together so you can imagine the tears shed.
I got teary writing out my vows, and at a couple other moments. Songs, or just thoughts of how close I felt to him and how blessed I felt to be marrying him.
We both got teary at our actual ceremony, both while we were doing out “guest participation” part and then when we exchanged vows. It was just so intimate and emotional.
We are both rather emotionally expressive people to begin with though! We still get choked up at times we feel very close to each other (whether the other is physically there or not).

Today I listened to “Butterfly Kisses” in the car because that is the song my father ad I are dancing to and I cried the whole time. I don’t cry daily, but aft least once every few weeks. But I will cry every time my mom talks about it because when mama cries, I cry. <3

Mee!! I do it all the time but when it comes down to the day I don’t think I’ll cry. I thought I’d cry during the proposal and didn’t – I was pretty shocked by that.

I am so emotional; I worry that I will cry through the entire ceremony. I don’t want to blubber! LOL
Just thinking about those doors opening and seeing him at the end of the aisle makes me start sobbing. How do I have a pretty light cry and not be a hot mess? I don’t know. 🙂

I literally cry every single day during the drive to work (an hour or so), because w/my iphone on shuffle, it’ll go from Dave Matthews Band to Taylor Swift and I’ll think -oooh, cake cutting song?, or something along those lines, and cry. I stopped wearing any eye makeup for a while until I can get myself together! hahahahaha

I also didn’t cry as much as I would have imagined when he proposed. I was definitely full of emotion, but it was almost like a calm/contentment that came over me. I was definitely teary-eyed, but wasn’t a mess. I lost it though when all of our family was waiting to surprise me. I don’t think I will get as choked up on my actual wedding day as I do when I think about it. I feel like I’ll have the same feeling of contentment. I will probably get a bit teary-eyed during the vow exchange. If I do get extremely choked up, it will be during my dad’s speech and wishing my mom could be there.

@chouette: Me either!!! I think the “HOLY CRAP THIS IS HAPPENING!” took away from the crying…I didn’t cry until the next day, in the middle of food shopping. LMAO!
