Is anyone scared that after they get ready on their wedding day and see their DAD for the first time that they will ball like a baby!??? hahaha
Seriously. My older sister already got married (my dad’s first born) and when we got out of the limo to the ceremony and he saw her for the first time, there was just this LOOK on his face that made me instantly burst into tears. I don’t know what it is about Dad’s and weddings but GEEZ. How the hell will I handle it when I see him on MY day?? I feel like seeing him and seeing my SO at the end of the isle will be the end all to my makeup LOL
What about you guys…? 🙂

@MissTX: yes! I’m so scared. I have never once seen my dad cry, and since I’m the baby of 5 children and the last child to get married, I’m scared something will just click in him. We’ll see. Eek. I do not want to see him cry. That’ll be too much and I’ll be a mess!

most definitely. I’m the baby of the family and I have always been really close with my dad so I know I’m going to absolutely bawl, he’s sensitive too so I’m sure there will be lots of tears.

@MissTX: Oh, both my dad and I cried like babies. We did a first look and it was the best thing I could have ever done!

I’m worried about both those moments too. But I’ve actually surprised myself at how well I keep my cool. I didn’t really cry and at any of my friends weddings I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man for and I didn’t cry when he proposed, which he was confused about and a little offended haha. I just got choked up. But I’m guessing at our wedding all bets are off and I’ll be blubbering and hopefully wearing waterproof everything.

My dad refused to look at me when I brought my wedding dress home to try on for my mom. He told me the reason was “I want to cry at the right time”. That, and he won’t tell me what song he picked for our Father-Daughter Dance; we’re both going to be crying, for sure.

I gotta say though, it is SO worth it! I will never forget the moment my dad saw me for the first time. The ONLY thing that beat that was seeing my husband for the first time. (The funny thing is I smiled for my dad. I just kept breathing and making my “ooo” face to keep from balling when I saw Mr. Hedgie… darn it! No smiling pictures for him! lol)
And just to share a few (too many) pictures of the emotional moment so you guys know it is going to be VERY emotional but so wonderful!

Ah the wedding day was sooo emotional for me and my Dad! I’m a total Daddy’s girl lol, so it was hard for both of us. We both kept tearing up before the wedding. Haha and he seriously looked like he was going to faint on the way over to the church and when he started walking me down the aisle. We just kept joking around during the father-daughter dance too so we wouldn’t tear up. Those moments are some of my favorite memories.

OH MY GODDDDD :-‘( I have huge tears in my eyes just from reading yalls responses!!! LOL goodness, what am i gonna do with me? I probably cry at everything but I agree with you guys…
1-seeing my dad for the first time
2-seeing my mom but ONLY if she cries, then I will too lol
3-seeing my future husbands sweet face. LORD In heaven help me if he has tears in his eyes
4-father/daughter dance. I have ALWAYS wanted to dance to MY GIRL for as long as I can remember. I thought that song was about love but I totally interpret that as a father singing to his daughter and my pops loves motown so it’s totally going to be an emotional ass MESS. I mean, I have so long to prepare but I cry watching Four Weddings on TLC I mean, hell.
Doing a first look photo with my dad is a GREAT* idea. I never thought to do that. I would much rather do it with him than with my SO. It might calm the nerves so I won’t be so frazzled seeing my dad RIGHT before I walk down the isle like my sister did. I was like howwww is she gonna hold it together? Because I looked at her FI’s face when she walking down and that was damn enough to send me into a tizzy. But when I saw my dad looking up at the alter after he ‘gave her away’ i was like, okay this is it, im about to faint at my sisters damn wedding. im getting so emotional thinking about it!! AHHH lol. I will be my mom’s first child to get married and her only girl, so im sure she is going to be a freakin emotional wreck too. This makes me want to elope…..lmao

I totally thought I was going to… and then on the day of, I just didn’t! It was like I had thought about the whole day and my dad and the ceremony and walking down the aisle SO MUCH that by the time I actually did it, I was just used to the thought of it and it didn’t end up making me cry! I cry now though sometimes if I look at the photos from my dad seeing me in my dress, or walking me down the aisle. So sweet!

I teared up a few times around my dad but for the most part I kept it together. There were moments I thought I was gonna lose it though!
Now my brother on the other hand…I burst into tears the second I saw him. He had recently returned from deployment (he’s a Marine) and was in his dress blues, complete with ribbons and medals. This was right before the ceremony so I had to make sure my makeup didn’t smudge, but it was a wonderful moment I’m thankful that took place.
