Tears Of Joy

I believe there are two types of people in this world -- those who cry at weddings, and those who don't. As for me? Let there be no question that I'm definitely a crier.

But what about crying at my own wedding? Would I be "once a crier, always a crier," or would things be different? Going into the day, I had no doubt that I would be a complete basket case. In fact, in full preparation for the waterworks, I even planned to have a special handkerchief on hand throughout the ceremony, and also made sure my maid of honor was well-stocked with a couple small packs of Kleenex.

Well, guess what? Each of these things went entirely unused! Now, that's not to say I didn't cry at all, or at least tear up, because I did. The first time was while walking down the aisle, and the second was while watching a special slideshow one of my bridesmaid's had created for the reception.



But for the most part, I guess I was just far too anxious and excited to even think about crying!

Did you cry a lot throughout your wedding day, or do you think you will? Are you usually a crier at others' weddings?

  2. Well other than wanting to cry when it started raining I only teared up right before walking down the aisle. Other than that I was fine. My husband on the other hand almost lost it when I walked down the aisle and throughout the ceremony he was very teary. It was cute.

  3. I was the same as you! I thought I'd cry, but I was so excited and nervous that it didn't happen. Now, the week before the wedding while stalking the forecast was a different story - I don't think I've ever cried so much in my whole life!

  5. I'm the same way! I alllways cry at weddings, but I have a feeling I will not cry at my wedding because I know I'm just going to be so busy and focused and overwhelmed...I'll prob. cry a lot AFTER the wedding looking over all the pictures and video, once it all sinks in. Did you cry after it looking back on the day at all?

  8. I'm really worried that I'm going to cry off and on our entire wedding day. I cry at almost anything - cards, commercials, etc. Hopefully I'll have a similar experience and be too anxious and excited to cry (too much).

  11. I'm usually really emotional and I expected to try a lot at the wedding. I did get teary walking down the aisle, and then again when my husband said his vows and I said mine. But I didn't break down as much as I anticipated!
