October 2011 Weddings

Who cried?

I know we had at least a few topics on whether we thought we'd cry or not at our weddings.

What did you think you'd do and what did you do?

I thought I was gonna get a little misty-eyed, but I did not! During the vows I almost did so I had to look away a few times because if I started crying I wouldn't have stopped. The groomsmen made fun of me afterward for saying my vows to them and not to H ;)

Re: Who cried?

  • Oh I knew I was going to cry... and I CRIED hard that day... lol I cried pretty much all morning getting ready - especially when my mother in law and my mother both walked in and BURST into tears! I cried when I saw my dad for the 1st time (he's 90 and was SUPER sick the day of the wedding and most people were telling me to prepare myself for him to be in the hospital) and then when I saw DH and the wedding party and then right before walking down the aisle my (soon to be) brother in laws pulled me into a room and said some very kind and sweet words to me then to DH then left us to be alone.. yup CRIED then! Everyone during the ceremony was crying - to this day manly men tell us all the time that they didn't cry at their own wedding but at ours... BAWLED. I wouldn't have wanted it any other way though, it was very me (and H)! We watched our video on our 3 months anniversary and we both cried it was bad (but good in the same way!)

  • I thought I was going to cry like a baby, but I didn't.  I think it helped that DH and I did pictures beforehand.  Otherwise I would have been more tense and emotional, but it worked out great.  We had a funt imes taking all our pictures and I was relaxed when I walked down the aisle.
  • I didn't think I was going to cry. And I didn't. I can be pretty emotional at weddings, but for some reason I knew I wouldn't be at my own wedding.

    This exactly. We did our pics ahead of time too which made it so much easier for me. I was relaxed all morning. When we were waiting for the ceremony to start I was getting a little anxious. Then when the girls left me to go line up with the guys I got really nervous about the walk down the aisle. The only time I cried all day was half way down the aisle but my bridesmaids assured me it wasnt an "ugly cry."haha. I was nervous about that bc I was trying to keep away the tears and try to keep smiling lol.

  • I cried when our videographer pulled me aside to make a video of me telling my FH how much I loved him. It was very sweet and personal and I could barely get out the words. He also made of one of DH and we watched it together. I also cried right before I walked down the aisle with my dad. As soon as we entered the church though, I was fine. I saw my BMs all crying while we were saying our vows and I almost burst out laughing lol.

    Apparently one of the BMs burst into tears the second she started walking down the aisle into the church. I had no idea until someone came up to me and asked who she was. It was the one girl in our group that acts so tough and doesn't want to be girly so we make fun of her for it now ;)

  • I thought I was going to get a little misty-eyed if not cry, and I was surprised that I didn't do anything.

    I didn't really know what I would do.  I usually get teary-eyed at all weddings.  But I didn't cry at all!  Although, the best man said that he got a little emotional when the doors opened and I started walking down the aisle.  He said if he would've saw Sam get choked up (but he didn't), he would've cried too.  And he said all he thought was that I was perfect for his best friend.  I thought that was sweet.  :) 

  • I think I was surprised about how calm I was the day of. The week leading up to it was an emotional roller coster (had to put our cat down, my mom was an emotional trianwreak, and I was also entertaining our out of town guest on top of last minute wedding errands).

    I almost cried when I was walking down the aisle and seeing all the people that were there for us. I did however just about lost it when I was dancing with my dad. He wanted to pick out our song, and he and DH wouldn't tell me what the song was until the DJ announced it. My dad picked  "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" by Judy Garland because I was pretty much Dorothy for the first eight years of my life. It was very touching and to keep from balling, I tried to sing along with it to my dad.... I look like a silly fool on the video, but I'm ok with that ; )
  • I almost broke down and started bawling as I was walking down the aisle towards H. Then my photographer stepped on my dress! I got a good jolt and started laughing! It was just what I needed because if I started crying I wouldn't stop. H was all tears during the ceremony. I had to keep looking away to keep from crying but was definetly chucked up. I wasn't sure how I would react since I had cried at a couple weddings before.

  • I cry at everything, so it was no surprise that I has a steady stream of happy tears going as I walked down the aisle. Little teary during vows too, but better than at the rehearsal! I was a total mess at the rehearsal... pathetic.
    I almost cried a second time when my mom was doing the reading for the wine-box ceremony, but then she totally tripped and I started laughing, so that was good :)
  • DH did, but I didn't. I completely broke down in happy tears the next day while we were in the Jeep driving the Road to Hana on Maui. :)
  • I only cried during our father-daughter dance :-) I didn't think I would cry at all though.
  • I didn't think I would cry.  Or if I did, it would be just a little.

    I was wrong.  I was good until my Dad walked into the room after we were finished getting ready and I burst into tears.  And then I couldn't stop.  I was bawling like a baby.  I finally got myself under control (by just not looking at my Dad) and then the doors opened to the church and I imediately began sobbing again.  It wasn't the prettiest either...oh well.  Luckily my girls were smart enough to have me wrap a tissue around my flowers so I had it with me!

    My MOH during her toast joked "see Kelly, you DO have emotions..."  since I'm the one in our group known for not really getting emotional at anything.

  • I knew I'd tear up at one point or another.  When we did our first look, it ended up being in the hotel instead of outside our venue due to the blizzard.  I walked around the corner, H had his back to me, I went up, tapped him on the shoulder, he turned around and we both had tears in our eyes!

    I think the craziness of the day helped keep me from totally busting out in tears several times.

  • I thought I'd tear up a bit, but I cried the entire way down the aisle. So badly that everything was blurry. My dad suffered a brain injury about six years ago and isn't the same person anymore. Right before I started walking down the aisle, he smiled at me, and it was like I saw the "old" dad there. I lost it. I still almost lose it just thinking about it.

  • I wasn't sure if I would cry or not.  Ends up I cried at least 3 times on my wedding day.

    I got choked up when my hair was done and I was about to put on my wedding dress for some reason.  I cried during our vows.  And I did it again when I was talking to a family memeber about my deceased great Uncle and Grandfather.

    The funniest part though, was on the honeymoon.  We took a guided tour of a National park near our resort.  When we came back down by the beach, there was a wedding going on.  They were JUST starting the vows....and I lost it.  Ha...I put on my sun glasses and walked away.  My husband still makes fun of me for it.
  • I cried that morning, but then that was it. I definitely thought I would cry and am surprised that I didnt, but I cry now watching the video :)

  • yup, ceremony and speeches. We had a 10min ceremony on purpose, otherwise I would've bawled the entire time :)

    My dad was absolutey bawling during our dance (I suprisingly didn't, but I think I was still a little mad at him for ditching my rehearsal dinner)
