Even if your parents were thrilled that you were getting married and love your husband, there still might have been some sadness there for them. Their daughter was getting married! It is a big transition in their lives… you forming your own family unit away from them. It means you won’t rely on them first anymore, that you’re really REALLY all grown up, and that they’re the “2nd generation” now. I know my mom has had some sadness as my brother and I get married about how my dad and her and my aunts/uncles used to be the 1st generation… the ones getting married and having kids and all that fun stuff. Now they’re the grandparents and we’re the ones “living” in her mind. People have a lot of issues with change and aging, and its very possible some of that was going on in their minds.

Maybe it was because so many pictures were being taken?

I know my family had a hard time holding their smile for all of the pictures! Do you think that may be it?
