    I got butterflies in my stomach this morning when I realized we're now just 2 months away.. seems amazing.
    But I need some advice.. Are there any other blubbering brides out there? I cry at commercial for pete's sake.. and I'm worried on my wedding day I'm going to be a blubbering idiot! Not to mention it will ruin my makeup, I don't want it to be the focus of my ceremony. Anyone have any suggestions? Or at least tips on how you handled your emotions on your wedding day?

        I've been like that since we got engaged. i cry at commercials, oprah, songs, when i tell stories, etc. Not major crying, but i get choked up. I tried to tell my mom about the hand ceremony & i cried each time I started to talk about it. I can't imagine I'd be able to actually get through it. I also wanted to write our own vows, but I'm starting to think I won't be able to get the words out. Maybe I can record myself & lipsync :)

            Wow! I thought it was just me.. I get emotional about everything.. funny how stress/feels affect everything!

            My problem is when I cry I get red and blotchy and it doesn't go away. I always envied those girls that could be crying in the girls bathroom and half an hour later they were just as pretty as always... lol not me, I look like a wreck, puffy face and all!

            You never know how you're going to feel until up to that moment. I'm hoping I'm calm and tears free!

                  If you cry, you cry. I don't think you should try to hold it back. I know I'll be complete mess. Just make sure to wear waterproof mascara and enlist a good friend (maybe the MOH) to carry some touch up makeup for after the ceremony.

                    Me too! What songs are you girls using for that? I've always loved the Father Daughter song by Paul Simon and it's even kind of fast so I thought that would help but it doesn't I still bawl when I hear it.

                      I love that paul simon song. I hadn't heard it until recently I was on hold with sprint & it was playing. My dad has health issues due to his weight & can't dance right now. Instead he is recording a song for us that we are going to play sometime during the ceremony. It's called "She wear's my ring" by ray price. My dad loves ray price.

                      We aren't having a dance. If we did, I was going to play the song while I danced with my FI. I'd have my dad sing it, but he is a cryer too!

                      I don't think it's just the stress that brings out the tears. I think it's other emotions. Excitement, happiness, love..and some stress.
