- Wedding: December 2010
I actually thought I would be crying walking down the aisle, but I was just ecstatic to be marrying my best friend and was smiling the whole way to him:)
Cried the entire way down the aisle.. and laughed it was nuts!!! but amazing. I only remember seeing my hubby when I was walking down. I wanted to see the look on his face but I couldn’t see it through the tears (keep in mind that I didn’t cry any other time lol!!!!)
I was nervous. And my dad was even more nervous so I was worried about him and his “one line” more than I could pay attention to my groom at that moment.
Then my sister was sniffling the entire ceremony (very sweet), so I was thinking about her more than anything else.
My ceremony was only about 5 minutes long total, so it was after the ceremony that I started to feel happy, excited and relieved to be married.
I laughed and talked to my Dad because my veil was being whipped around by the wind so I remember saying “dad you don’t have to worry with lifting the veil now because it may have just blown off!” and then it would flip forward all of it in front of my face and I’d laugh and say well now I can’t see! I smiled the whole time during the ceremony, he teared up a bit and said I’m sorry I’m crying! Too cute which made me giggle. No tears for me. I think I’ll probably be the cry baby when we have a little one on the way! The wedding was just so much fun I had to smile! 🙂
i was smiling, and telling my parents were to stop stepping on my dress, lol. our aisle was a little too narrow for all of us
I was trying REALLY hard not to cry and as a result I have a really weird/unattractive look on my face the whole way down the aisle. Oh well 🙂 I managed to pull it together once I got up there and I look normal for the rest of the ceremony!
I was smiling so big! Just very happy and calm. Like “This is it.” I was aware of the eyes on me, but I could feel the love from all our guests so it didn’t bother me to be watched by so many people. I don’t really think I had tunnel vision, but I did focus on my groom and the emotions in his face. The closer I got, the more emotional he got.
Just before we walked down, I saw my dad’s chin quivering. My sister told him to get it together, and I turned away from him so that I could gather myself. I knew if I saw him crying I would cry too! I took his arm almost without looking at him and said to him facing forward, “Dad, I love you, but you’re not allowed to make me cry.” Then he led me down toward my groom!
I was smiling/giggling from ear to ear! I never seen my hubby smile so big and it made me chuckle a little. hehe 😉
Nice thread! I never looked down (or back) but I did look scared! I see it in the photos and I remember the feeling. Suddenly, I was taken aback at all our guests standing and turned decidedly towards me and my brother (who walked me down a very long aisle flooded with sunlight.. so, nowhere to hide lol. For anyone who thinks the folks at the back being maybe the last ones to come in don’t matter as much as the folks at the front, well, these were my bosses, and one in particular — an elegant African man was all decked out in a silk cap and gown to the floor and locked eyes with me and started nodding slightly, egging me on. I was never very close to him before that day, but since then…. I haven’t been able to thank him enough. Regretfully, I didn’t really see my groom until he shook hands with my brother and then – YES ! – of instinct and habit I guess — kissed me (on the cheek) when he saw me and took my hand to be married!
