I always cry when watching those shows on TV and such, but for mine, not one single tear!  The only time I teared up a bit was when I read the card from my hubby to me while I was getting ready.  I was quite glad not to mess up my makeup or have any ugly cry pictures!  It’s one of those things, I guess you just can’t predict!

I expect I will cry, though I am not sure how much.  I surprised myself when I didn’t cry during the proposal.  The whole thing happened so fast there just wasn’t time.  I’ve considered a lightning fast ceremony so I can hold back on that day as well.  Of course, too fast and I won’t be able to take it all in!

Cry at everyone else’s wedding.  Totally prepared to cry at mine — waterproof makeup and the like — and in fact I didn’t shed a tear.  Was far too giggly/excited even for happy tears!

Oh I most likely will cry at my wedding but probably only at the vows part of the ceremony. The last 3 weddings I attended I ended up tearing up when they said their vows. I think it may have had to do with me being the Maid/Matron of Honor or bridesmaid in each where I had a perfect view of the groom and saw each of them with glassy eyes. I guess I better prepare myself for the waterworks!

I know I’m going to be a wreck at my wedding.  I cry at weddings on tv, weddings for people I don’t even know! I recently went to a wedding for someone I had only met once, and I cried through several parts of the ceremony.  So I’m not sure how to get around crying at my own!

Waterproof mascara will probably be my best friend for the ceremony. Then a touchup before the reception.  I do hope that I see a few tears from my fiance when I walk down the aisle. 🙂

I am actually REALLY worried about this!

I never used to be a cryer – I used to be this big tomboy, who only had guy friends. Once I met my 2 best friends now, who are both girls I have become a MAJOR softy to the MAX!

I cry at EVERYTHING! there pretty much isint a day of watching TV that I didn’t cry (extream makeover: home addition was a bad culprit for that) Yeah I cry alot

AND NOW, with all this wedding planning I am freaking out even more because I really think I am going to have a breakdown! even just THINKING about things like walking down the aisle with my dad, or seeing my Fiance while walking down the aisle, or SAYING MY VOWS, or hearing speeches…I have to like mentally stop myself from getting that feeling in my gut that I am about to burst out into tears!

I tell my Fiance this all the time, and he’s like you’ll be fine, and I just look at him and go…WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING! ha ha I was like sedate me or something! Ugh!

Worst part is…I am totally one of those UGLY cryers. ha ha nasty bunched up face, I got bloctchy and red, and my eyes get sooooo puffy I look like my dog (a PUG) ha ha

Any advice other than being heavily sedated on your wedding day?! ha ha

I’m a crier generally – at other’s weddings, any important life ceremoney like graduation, at movies, etc etc.  But I really don’t cry at my OWN of these things.  I get oddly composed when I know there are a bunch of people looking at me.  I don’t know why, I don’t even try to do it!  I think it’ll be the same for our wedding – all the eyes on us will make me feel a little more like it’s a performance or something.

Oh, I’ve totally accepted the fact that I will be a GONER during my ceremony. I never used to be a crier, but over the past few years, it’s gotten way worse. I find myself crying at the strangest things like "Wife Swap" and Hallmark card commercials. I even cried at the end of "Bolt"! Fiance and I were going over ceremony readings the other night, and I got all teary just doing that! AH! I’m totally making my Maid/Matron of Honor carry tissues in her bustier… I know I’m gonna need them!

I started crying when I looked at my groom and he was crying. Thank goodness he had given me a hankerchief for a gift and I had that one me. It really came in handy for both of us. Apparently everyone at the wedding was crying so it wasn’t a big deal that we were. I turned to my bridesmaids at one point and said do I look like a big mess and they blotted my face and it was all good!

I can totally imagine myself crying. I tear up just thinking about my wedding and walking down the aisle to my honey.

I’m a total crier too – commercials make me cry – anything about puppies, reading a sad story, news stories – but I did not cry at my wedding.  My older sister walked me down the aisle, and I started getting misty so I just started talking to her to take my mind off of it.  And my husband did a couple of funny things during the ceremony to make me laugh.  Any time I felt myself getting emotional, I’d shift my gaze – look at my Maid/Matron of Honor, our guests, my nephew who was a groomsman or one of the kid in the bridal party.

I cried walking down the aisle (I was laughing too…my dad had put in some silly fake teeth right before we started down the aisle) and also cried when I was saying my vows.  I pulled it together and made it through!  Don’t be worried about if you’re going to cry or not!  Its an emotional day and if you cry and mess up your make-up, then so be it!  You’ll have time to touch it up afterwards!

  • Wedding: February 2009 - Small church ceremony with mountain-view log cabin reception

i cried like.a.complete.baby… It got to the point where I was sniffling and had to wipe my nose with the back of my hand repeatedly. My Mother-In-Law was trying to get my attention so she could hand me a tissue, but I was totally out of it. I didn’t expect to cry that much, but man when those flood gates are open, you can’t close them!

oh and that brings me to my point- even if you don’t intend on crying, I would be prepared to cry- bring at least a tissue!
