    I didn’t cry, surprisingly!  I bawled like a baby at my shower and the rehearsal dinner (both when talking about my late grandparents), but was totally fine for our ceremony!  My mom says it has to do with me being a performer (I’m a pianist), and knowing how to go into “stage mode”.

    I didn’t cry.  I was too busy smiling like a crazy person and figuring out how to cool off DH’s hands because he was sweating all over me. 

    It also helped that I wrote our ceremony and knew the words the officiant was reading already, so I was familiar with them and had already given thought to what they mean.

    If we’re being completely honest I was also kind of freaked out by the way husband was staring maniacally into my eyes, like deep, internet creeper staring.  It made me giggle more than once.

    Nope but I stuttered a bit and had to go back. After the second line, I also didn’t look at him because I knew if I did I’d bawl my eyes out. My legs were shaking though and Darling Husband was standing at attention and I almost had to tell him to relax or I was going to freak out!

    I cried during my husband’s vows, not so much saying my own.

    I fully expected to cry (and he was BAWLING when I walked down the aisle) but other than a tiny blip, we got through our vows perfectly.

    @KristenGotMarried:  I had written our ceremony too and I agree it helped to remember the meaning. Also, the creeper stare…I can totally relate.

    I shed a couple of tears. DH’s eyes were full of tears but he didn’t let them out. One wrong blink and he would have been a goner.

    No crying for me!  I was overwhelmed with happiness to the point where all I could do was smile the biggest smile I’ve ever had and recite my vows.  I cried when I wrote my vows, I cried when we rehearsed our vows, I cried after our wedding when I remembered saying our vows, but during – it was the last thing on my mind.

    I didn’t crazy, I just had a huge grin on my face the whole time.

    @SpecialSundae:  I feel like I’m going to bawl, and I’m not much of a crier, so it’s good to hear others thought that they would but actually didn’t.
