Does anyone have any advice for how to keep from bawling down the aisle and blubbering through the ceremony? I'm at Starbucks right now trying to work on our ceremony and I seriously cannot even get through the most mundane sample ceremony examples without sniffling into my latte. This also happens to me when I'm in my car listening to potential processional music. Canon in D? I am instantly a mess.
I'm combating this by walking down the aisle to a cover of Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. Our first dance might be a New Kids on the Block song (FI might be calling my bluff, but he said he's down). I am seriously going out of my way to avoid anything sentimental or schlocky because I will immediately lose it. Not just a few tears, but full on ugly cry.
Unfortunately, there is no way around the weightiness of a wedding ceremony. What do I do??? Besides avoid wearing mascara? Facial muscle exercises? Just read my ceremony over and over and over until I'm so sick of it it won't make cry? How did you already-marrieds keep your composure???
