Well, here is something about myself. I am such a softy. I have been to so many weddings in my entire life. And, I still find myself crying at each and every one of them. I am so emotionally invested in weddings. They are such a happy and beautiful time. In fact I keep tissue in my camera bag because of this!
It also amazes me how well the bride and groom hide their nerves on the wedding day. Even after all of the weddings I have been to, it’s amazing how much love is there during that time. There are some many people that cry during the ceremony and the reception.
If you find yourself thinking ‘I don’t want to cry during my wedding’. Ignore that voice. Go ahead and cry, let the tears flow. Blubber like a baby, ugly cry if that’s your way. Do what YOU need to do to express yourself on YOUR wedding day. Don’t feel that you have to stifle any emotion. EVER! Whether it’s your wedding day or not. It’s NOT human!
So, here’s a secret for you. YOU are SUPPOSED to cry on your wedding day. You are SUPPOSED to feel an overwhelming amount of emotion. This IS an emotional day. If people that go to weddings don’t even know the people that well. And, THEY cry. Let it go. Cry! Cry those extremely overwhelming happy tears! This is supposed to be a once in a lifetime experience and the whole point is to enjoy it in its entirety.
Besides, when you have your make up done they use waterproof make up, and usually spray some solidifying spray to keep it from running in tears or sweat. So, if you hold back your emotions, it’s not because you think your make up will run. It’s honestly because you are afraid of what other people will think. And your wedding is NOT the day to worry about that!
