@MxH13  Carry an extra hankie or 2 with your bouquet? Or if you have the cleavage for it, tuck one in there! ๐Ÿ˜‰ At the very least, try to think of something funny, that technically stops tears. Think about the officiant wearing red hearts-covered underwear or something equally silly!

And for what its worth, my brother’s ex wife cried at their wedding (and it was pretty ugly, I’m sorry). But she still made a beautiful bride, because it was their wedding!

@MxH13  Up until my bridal shower I didnt feel anything.  Then the other day I started getting really excited at times.  I get really emotional thinking about my dance with my dad.  When I was pickign the music Fiance was astonished because the first note would play and I would burst into tears.  So I picked a kind of upbeat and not traditional song for it, but it fits for my dad and me.  I think I probably will be tearful at the altar, but I read too that some brides who are so emotional now didnt shed a tear on their day!  I also read a tip, and i think it can work… let me see if i can find the article

Here ya go:

I always chime in on these threads to say this – let yourself cry! I was exactly like you in the lead-up to the wedding. Cried listening to our special songs, writing vows, at dress fittings, even picking out flowers.

Wedding day? I cried. He cried. Parents cried. Bridal party cried. Family cried. Coworkers who have no idea of the history between us cried because everyone else was so emotional.

I don’t see any point in trying to stop yourself crying, honestly! It is an emotional day, it’s supposed to be – you’re marrying the love of your life! I can’t imagine trying to not cry and show emotion on such a huge day. A couple weeks before the wedding I read a great piece of advice – just don’t fight it. Fighting it is what gives you the ugly cry. Just smile through it! I cried the WHOLE way down the aisle, but I also had a huge smile on my face so it looks fine in pictures. We both cried through the ENTIRE ceremony – it was so bad that at one point the officiant just straight up stopped for a minute and asked the Maid/Matron of Honor if she had any more tissues for us because we already used the ones my husband had in his pocket lol.

We cried during dances and speeches and you can bet your ass there are a few ugly cry pictures but you know what, it just shows how emotional and full of love the day was so I don’t regret it for even half a second. Let yourself feel your feelings, everything will work out. ๐Ÿ™‚

Omg I do this every day. I’m such a sap I’m so scared of ugly crying and ruining my makeup while walking down the isle. Even when I hear an emotional song that isn’t even our song I start happy crying!

Hahah I was just thinking about this today! A song came on the radio on my way to work (This Love by Maroon 5 – not even a sappy song!) and I started thinking how I would want that to play at our wedding because it’s a fun song and I STARTED CRYING. I get emotional over every little thing! So you aren’t alone!

As PPs have said, you are NOT alone! Every time our wedding song came on I’d cry. Every time I thought about seeing DH at the church, I’d cry. Every time I’d think about dancing with DH and my dad, I’d cry.

But thankfully, I held it together pretty much all day. Seeing DH in church made my cry and my dads speech made me cry… mostly because he was crying. But everything went so smoothly. You’ll be so in awe of the moment that you will be fine. I garuntee it. And if you cry… it’s your wedding! Its allowed. Trust me.

Good luck ๐Ÿ™‚

@MxH13  for me, only certain parts of the plans make me cry so I avoid them,


but I’m hoping if I have a GOOD cry about it all before, then the day of won’t be that bad

I was a blubbering fool on my wedding day. I was soooo glad that my make-up stayed in place.  ๐Ÿ™‚
