Hi everyone! Just wanted to put up a quick post to say thanks for all the great advice you’ve given us on the wedding — we’ve made a ton of decisions based on some of the things said here. I promise to post tips next week — we have a few tricks up our sleeves that I think you’ll appreciate. My only last question is — how the heck do I manage to say my vows with crying? I’m so weepy with glee it’s silly.

Have a great weekend! — Angela M.

From our partners

Congrats!!!

Congratulations! Do not try to not cry. Then your face looks all funny. Just let it flow. You should not feel like you need to hold back at all, just let every emotion out if tears of joy or laughter. The emotion shown in the images wil be wonderful for you to look back on. Have a wonderful weekend.

p.s. i totally second waterproof mascara. ;)

If you’re like me, and I was really afraid I’d cry, your knees might do a strange twitch while you are standing at the altar, and you will be so afraid everyone will detect this, you won’t be able to cry after all. But whatever you do, this will be one of the most wonderful days of your life, and just enjoy it — cry, tear up, laugh, whatever! Best wishes to you!

Just feel what you feel. If you cry, great! If you don’t cry, it’s still great! As long as you’re happy, that’s all that matters. Have a wonderful time!

If you cry, you cry. It’ll be heartfelt and it’s your wedding day. Happy cries are the best anyway!

You’ll probably cry, but you wont’ be the only one. I was surprised how emotional I was doing the ceremony. I had stuffed a tissue down my dress just in case and it made everyone laugh when I pulled it out.

Enjoy and congratultions!

Congratulations! I hope you enjoy every minute of your special day.

The more you try NOT to cry, the more likely it is you WILL cry*, and you’ll be doing the ugly crying face thing. Let your eyes well up, feel the depth of your emotion, share that with your nearest and dearest. Mostly likely they’ll be doing it, too.

*A little-known fact. I learned this in an acting class. We were discussing muscle memory, and did an exercise where we went through the motions of trying NOT to cry (tensing your mouth, widening eyes or laborious blinking, etc., whatever _you_ do), and it really made a difference–the whole room wasn’t boo-hooing, but most people got teary, and this was without doing any emotional recall stuff–pure physicality. It was crazy.
