I am not an outwardly-emotional person, too, but found myself getting choked up during wedding planning a lot (like when I’d go over the speech in my head about my dad before our dance!(, or my personal vows during the ceremony.  I was worried about the same thing you were.

Something happened to me, though, right before the ceremony.  I was super excited, and just wanted to get down that aisle to marry my man!  I practically ran! 

Plus, when you’re in your gown and have your hair and make-up all done, I was focused on not messing it all up before the pictures.  It oddly kept me from crying.  I didn’t lose it until the toasts during the reception and it was downhill from there. 

Try to focus on the very happy occassion and be giddy.  It will fly by….

I’m terrified of this too. I cry just THINKING about walking down the aisle and marrying my fiance.

I guess we’ll just make sure our BMS and us have enough tissues.

I have had a lot of emotional moments in planning, but my sister assures me that, for all the choked up she got before the big day, she mostly wanted to laugh at everything all day on the wedding day.  I remember a funny look on her face most of the time, and now I know what is was.  She said she was just so happy/giddy, it never occurred to her to cry – everything was exciting and funny.  Hopefully I will be the same way.

I think much of the "ugly cry" is attributed to trying NOT to cry!! When you scrunch up your face trying to prevent the tears from flowing… it looks worse than actually crying! So just let it out if you must! They are tears of joy =)
