I had my ugly cry moment at the rehearsal and had a hard time going from my dad to DH’s hand. ironically during my wedding day; one of my bm’s whose a MD gave me a bendaryl to take the edge off of my emotions so I could make it down the aisle! haha!

I’m a very emotional person, and I tend not to edit or control myself in that way, since being genuine is the only way I can be…I think because of that, I tend not to have any stress surrounding crying or whatever, so that makes it easier….I really wasn’t sure what to expect when I walked down the aisle with my Dad, and as we were strolling, I was just taking everything in, the music, the room, our friends, Mr 99 smiling at me…and it felt really good and right, a line from my favorite poem was running through my head and I hugged my Dad and we smiled at each other…I just kept breathing, because nothing was really changing, I knew I was going to be with Mr 99 the day I met him, so this was paperwork and cake…I did mist up when I finally got to hold his hands and when we did our vows, but we kept it together…

I would suggest focusing on slow, steady breathing, keeping the mindset of good and right, not ending or giving away stuff and keep reminding yourself that it’s a happy, wonderful, wonderful day! Also, you could ask your wedding venue to make sure there’s plenty of cool air circulating, that keeps you from wellilng up and if you feel those tears coming, focus that overwhelming feeling into your hand, clench it up around your flowers, and keep it there…that’s something I learned to do as an actress, eventually you do an emotional scene so many times that you get on a crying jag…you gotta know how to slow it back down!
