    Not a drop.  I cried at everything – wedding songs, ordering my shoes, etc.  But the day of.  Not a single drop.

    I don’t think I’m capable of any type of crying but ugly crying.  And I defintely ugly cried during the ceremony, but you can’t tell in our pictures!

    The ceremony was the only time I cried all day though.

    I cried during my ceremony, especially during the hand ceremony.  Thank goodness that I had a hanky ready.  No ugly cry just tears flowing.  I cried during our first dance and during the F/D dance.

    I cry at absolutely everything and I ugly cry too. Even now when I hear our wedding song I ugly cry. But on the day of our wedding I didn’t. I got a teensy bit misty when he said his vows but that was it. I was just overwhelmingly happy.

    During the end of the engagement I was so emotional I cried at least once a day at basically anything and everything lol.

    On my wedding day I was so happy I couldn’t stop smiling or laughing. I was so happy and the stress was all over with that looking back now I couldn’t imagine shedding a tear.

    So much ugly crying haha. I knew it was going to happen (even though tons of people are surprised when they don’t cry). You can hear sniffling throughout our entire wedding video. I’d post pics but obvi I don’t keep them on hand 😉

    I didn’t cry, at first – my husband did & that made me cry!

    But our cries were very different. Mine was silent, slow tears rolling down my face. While, his was full out sobbing. We are talking shoulders shaking, nose running, tears choking, combined with some snorting, full out sobbing. It totally took me off gaurd and thats when my waterfalls started, along with my entire bridal party & our guests, haha! It was such an emotional moment of our vows and my husband just broke down!

    I cry very, very easily and didn’t cry at either of our weddings. (We had two in two different countries) I cry at weddings on tv/movies, but didn’t cry at all! 🙂

    Ugh…I hate looking at the pictures of when I first walked into the church with my dad. I have the ugly cry look all over my face. My chin gets all of these weird indents in it and I just look awful. I seriously hate looking at those pictures!!

    I really thought that I was going to be a complete disaster but I wasn’t. I started tearing up as I was walking down the aisle but I held it together for the most part. It wasn’t until about half way through my vows that I started to cry but it really wasn’t all that dramatic.

    I think my mother “ugly cried” enough for the both of us. When I got to her at the end of the aisle, she was sobbing uncontrollably. I’m an only child and she was a single parent for most of my life so she was VERY emotional during our ceremony. 

    ETA: Now that I think about it, my ugly cry did make an appearance during my MOH’s speech at our reception. She’s like an emotional brick wall so when I got up to hug her after her speech was over she told me that I was totally lame for crying. She loves me, she really does. Lol

    This was as soon as the doors opened.  I was watching the video of me walking in, and I was smiling when the doors opened, but right away I burst into tears!!! It gets uglier, but this is the only photo I got with the ugly cry! LOL!  I think right after this my uncle (walking me down the aisle) told me to slow down because I was racing to get to the front. 

    I knew I was going to cry, but I didn’t think it would be while walking down the aisle.  It was probably a combo of seeing my husband trying not to cry, the music (canon in D) and that it was finally happening.  I didn’t cry the rest of the day though and stopped when I got to my husband.  He handed me some tissue 🙂
