Personally, I always cry at weddings. Tears at weddings are happy tears. A wedding marks the beginning and ending of chapters in our lives.
Trust me, shedding tears at weddings have come to stay. It is the new normal and recurring moment at all types of wedding.
Be honest, how best can you express your deep passion and love without some few drops of tears?
It is people’s way of expressing how excited and passionate their feel about each other or how romantic the ambience is when the bride and groom are saying ‘I do’.
It is quite disappointing to see brides ruining their makeup with tears as the critics will say. But it’s okay to see couple crying on their big day after months and probably years of planning a wedding.
At some point during the ceremony, wedding guests always shed tears due to some soul touching sight or speech.
In our everyday lives, people cry when sad circumstances have hit them and rejoice when they hear the lovely news.
So, why do we cry at weddings?
The bride walking down the aisle
Believe it or not, one of the most beautiful sight is when a bride walks down the aisle in her stunning gown, gorgeous shoes and matching makeup.
As she walks majestically and the music begins to play, eyes are filled with tears of joy.
Let's be real, those days of repeating vows after the one officiating wedding ceremonies are over. Bride and groom get us every single time when they profess their love for each other through their wedding vows.
Beautifully written piece by bride and groom which forms a basis of their love and a reminder of why they choose each other.
Speech from best man
Unlike some woman who hire bridesmaid, most men usually use their secondary school or university mates as best men. These best men are acquainted with all secrets and doings of the groom. These people are the best to deliver a heart melting testimony about the groom which comes as a surprise to men including the groom’s parents
When the bride cries
Let the fireworks begin. Just hearing those all-important words come out of the bride’s mouth as she looks tenderly into the eyes of the love of her life witnessed by family and friends is enough reason to melt everyone's heart including herself.
When the parents tear up
Whether it's during the vows or a toast to the couple at dinnertime, seeing the parents get all weepy-eyes over the marriage will open up the floodgates for everyone else (okay, probably just the women once again, but still). It's just too darn sweet!
