The gushing groom

Help! My honey is a crier. He can't watch a Folger's commercial without tearing up. Disney movies?!?! Forget it! I just know he is going to start bawling during our wedding ceremony and then he will make me cry and then my make-up will run and then I will have to kick his butt! What can I do pre-wedding to help him calm down? Booze? Slip him some naughty pics of me in my wedding night lingerie? Help please?

    If you slip him the naughty pics then he might have an unsightly wet spot on his trousers. 
    That would be way more embarrassing than your mascara running.

    Punch him in the man goods. He'll get all the tears out early.

    Have you considered using different makeup? If you hire a professional makeup artist, s/he should be using waterproof or tearproof makeup.

    Good point Cinema! 
    SG that might impact my plans for the honey moon.
    Nicole, not really worried about my make-up. I was kidding about that but when he starts with the waterworks its hard to get him to stop and there is always sniffling and snot. Really just don't want to go there.

    Honestly, if he's prone to crying and getting emotional easily, he probably will and it's OK. I've seen many a groom cry during the wedding, and I think it's sweet. Just make sure to have tissues on hand (he could easily keep some in his pocket) and if you feel he's having a hard time stopping, make a silly face or something at him.

    The wedding date is Oct 27th. I'll check out Married Life. 
    You're right Summer, I guess there isn't much I can do. I was just trying to spare him some embarassment. He can't hide under a ball cap or behind sunglasses this time!

    Don't put it on him to not cry.  Just buy some waterproof makeup.

    We scheduled our photos to take place before the ceremony so we could avoid the awkwardness of possibly getting super emotional in front of all of our guests. So there's an idea for you.

    For this reason my FI and I have scheduled first looks.  To get most of the water works out of the way before hand.  Plus then we can both be more relaxed and enjoy everything going on.

    [QUOTE]Are you seriously complaining about the possibility of your groom getting emotional on your wedding day?  Do you have any idea how that makes you sound to the tons of women who would KILL for their SOs to be even a little sentimental about that kind of thing?
    Posted by StageManager14[/QUOTE]
    Exactly this. 

    Also, if that's his real, natural reaction, I'm not sure why you think that's a bad thing. Make sure he has some tissues and call it a day.

    I wish my husband had cried during our ceremony. 

    Also, what's with the Married Life advertisements?  I'm tired of them.

    Stage: I'm not talking about a little trickle. I'm talking about full on snot running down his face sobbing. I'm trying to spare him the embarassment. I know it bothers him but he can't help it. Don't be bitchy. Its not my fault "tons of women" are married to insensitive douches.

    Stage: I came here looking for advice and camaraderie, you took an attitude with me without reading all the above posts. I clearly stated I was not really worried about my make-up when someone else told me just to use waterproof. You insinuated that everyone else's husband would not be the slightest bit sentimental. This is a wedding advice board. Get over yourself. You're a member, not a supreme court justice. 
    Adios bitchachos!

    It is totally adorable when grooms cry! Or men in general... I don't know why! I have seen my fiance shed one tiny tear... sigh.
