It goes without saying that some things are just meant to go together. Movies and popcorn; summer and July, and certainly – weddings and tears. Which brings us to our question of the day, 'Why do people cry at weddings?'
There's really a simple answer as to why weddings bring out our most intimate emotions but before we pull back the curtain on the reason behind this common occurrence, let's take a look at the results of an insightful study recently conducted by a team of researchers.
Tears are a sign of fullness. Whenever you're full of laughter, you cry. Whenever you're full of happiness, you cry. And whenever you're full of love and emotion, tears occur as a result of that state of fullness. Crying is what we do when words are not enough to express how we feel at the moment – and as history has proven time and time again, weddings routinely bring out these moments for men and women, young and old.
