I’m worried about this too! I cry just thinking about walking down the aisle. I’m an emotional basket case. I’ve told myself to think about something funny or bite my toungue…but… that may make for weird pictures too. So, good luck to us all! LOL

I would have put money on it that both my dad and I would bawl like babies all the way down the aisle. Leading up to the wedding I would cry thinking about it too! But on the day of I totally didnt (and neither did my dad- who is more emotional than I am!)
I think it helped that my husband and I had a first look and got to spend some time together before hand, it helped ease my nerves and when it was time to walk down the aisle I was just happy/excited!! =)
I wouldnt worry too much about it, try to relax and take it all in! Happy wedding planning!

I almost got teary reading these comments but a good teary. I was laughing (in the middle of my lecture at uni- clearly a dedicated student lol)

I read on a previous post that doing simple math might help (like 2+2 = 4, 2+3=5, etc.)
I’ve tried it for other stuff.. but not a big event haha

okay, I don’t exactly have any advice, but you’re not necessarily doomed! I’ve had tears in my eyes at almost every wedding I’ve been a guest at, and I cry at sweet commercials, so I thought I would for SURE cry at the wedding.
Well, like you I didn’t cry at the proposal, I was just SUPER excited!
At the wedding, as the music started and I was about to walk out with my dad, I had an “oh no” moment where I felt some mist in my eyes… but as I walked down the aisle I just kept my eye on the prize (my groom).who was smiling big! It made me just smile rather than cry, and I basically smiled like an idiot throughout the whole ceremony! No tears for me!

Just let the tears flow. I tried too hard to not cry during our vows that I look pissed off in my wedding photos. When we got the photos back, my husband commented that I might be the only bride glowering instead of glowing on my wedding day.

I had a veil to hide behind which made me feel more secure. I also told my Dad that his job was to lighten the mood when meeting me and walking me down the aisle. It was good to look at our guests and surrounds all set up too.
I managed to hold it together and only almost lost it when I could hear the emotion in my Mum’s voice in her reading. If my husband had lost it I would’ve definitely gone too.

I sobbed LOL I have no advice, just a picture of me and my mom ugly crying but still keeping it pretty
and both me and my husband crying during my vows
and my bridesmaids crying
in the end, it was only breif moments of crying and only during the ceremony. My family had always been a whole bunch of crybabies, so this was expected haha Good luck keeping the tears in and enjoy every moment of it, even if you do shed a tear!

Someone told me to have a conversation with your father as you walk down the aisle. She said she spoke to her father about what he had eaten for breakfast hahaha totally took
