I find that if the bride or groom cries, someone will definitely sniffle!

I was crying walking down the aisle. And the man who married us knew me since I was little and said some really nice things about my family and my adoption.

If you or your FI cries I can guarantee the guests will cry.

@MadameTussaud: Our honesty and love for each other in our vows really touched peoples’ hearts.

Voice breaking while saying the bows.. works like a charm.

We wrote our own vows. There were so many people that came up to us after to tell us they were crying, because they could feel the love.  Our photog also got tons of people crying in pics. It was great. I think a lot of it is just about the feeling of the ceremony.

A scripture or poem reading…music is very good at eliciting emotion! a slideshow of pictures from little kids to a couple

We wrote words of love to each other about why we were marrying one another.  We didn’t hear it during the ceremony but later everyone told us that all the guests were sniffling and wiping their eyes.

I think if you just focus on each other and let your love shine through, you’ll have the reaction you want without even trying 🙂

We haven’t gotten married yet but during the ceremony after we do our sand ceremony we are presenting each of our mothers roses to show our appreciation to them. It makes me tear up when thinking about it so I know others will cry as well!

Its funny that you want people to cry at hour wedding!! 🙂

I can’t imagine people crying at mine either, but that’s fine. 

I don’t usually cry at weddings and I’ve been to a lot!! I think I just may have become immune! Haha. But there were 2 weddings at which I cried/almost cried:

Cried like a baby alon with EVERY woman in the room: groom surprising bride by singing her their song (fix you-by Coldplay) at the reception, with brides’ sisters/cousin and friends playing the music. Amazing. men were freaking out just looking how we cried hahaha

Watery eyed: speech by groom at the dinner, talking about his bride. Very heart touching words

I think if you spill your heart out in any way, it’s bound to bring many tears of joy

Drunkenly discussing this with my friends and we debated hiring bouncers to go round punching people in their arms to make them cry.  We then decided this would be a lot more appropriate for a funeral (pink wine is now banned as it does not make for good ideas). 

A few people cried in my wedding.  My brother who is a big burly hard-lad cried when we entered in the reception. Various family members cried when my Darling Husband handed me my boquet outside the church.  I really didn’t expect anyone to cry, although it was lovely I wouldn’t have been upset if they hadn’t.

I think you can’t force it. If you try and set it up it either wont happen or will feel fake! If no one cries it doesn’t make your marriage less valid!
