Wrap a handkerchief around the base of your bouquet.  That’s what I’m doing.

I’m not really a crier but I probably will too…

A friend of mine was married 7/10 and she cried down the aisle too. She said her sister/MOH had told her a funny story right before she walked down so it calmed her a little so it was more teary than a full on cry. Maybe ask your Dad/whoever’s walking you or your Maid/Matron of Honor to do the same?

I plan on sticking a little tissue and my lipgloss into my bouquet. I’ve done it before as a Bridesmaid or Best Man and it works. Just make sure you get it in there nice & snug so it doesn’t fall out – and make sure the tissue isn’t stuffed too far in so that it gets wet from the flowers.

Good luck!!

I too will likely cry down the aisle.  A large part of it will be seeing my dad – so he is going to be around as I get ready in the morning and so he can see me slowly come together as a bride – as opposed to seeing me wake up to seeing me in my full-on bridal glory of dress, hair, veil, makeup, shoes and flowers.  We are hoping to get the sobbing part out and allow time for touch-ups.  As for seeing my groom, I am just going to smile bigger than I have ever smiled before and if a few tears leak out, I am ok with that!  My hope is that I will have tears and be teary-eyed but not with the ugly sobbing face, you know?  (Yes…yes you do.  Haha!)

In terms of tissues – I will probably fold one (ok…more than one) into my hand and hold it around my bouquet so that when I hand off my bouquet to my Maid/Matron of Honor, I will still have the tissue discretely in my hand and won’t need to plunge my hand into my boobs (which is really like a storage area when you have no pockets!) to get one.

Hahaha…oh boy.  I totally understand what you mean!

Yeah….have the groom make a face at you or think of a funny story.  I thought I was all cried out since we had a first look and I’m not much of a crier but nope.  And my hub was giving me such a sweet look but then he changed for a minute and kinda gave me a goofy look and I was thinking OK just take a deep breath.  I was fine after I was up there with him though and in the ceremony.

I have been trying out various waterproof mascaras.  I know I will cry a lot, so a good mascara may be my best friend.

Everyone in my family knows I will cry. I was originally not going to wear a blusher, but my dad really wanted to see me in one and then after lots of thought we decided I would keep it on for the whole ceremony and hopefully I’d compose myself enough by the end that I won’t be all splotchy. The Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses also have pockets so my sister/MOH will be loaded with tissues!

I thought I would cry the whole time I didn’t.  I was more excited/happy.  It really helped that everyone around me wasn’t bawling.

I was crying…my Maid/Matron of Honor just kept repeating the words “porta-potty” bc, lets be real, who can be serious when talking about porta-potties! 🙂
