    How wonderful that you have such a big milestone on the horizon. When my son got married I knew my EL would,probably be OTT but I worried about what to do with all those soggy tissues. My solution was to have a large extra handbag which was looked after by my sister in law and was nowhere to be seen in the wedding photos! Looking forward to hearing more about your plans for the big day.

    Hi Hayls,

    Great advice from others. Like Kayleigh, I get a few people in front of me a couple of feet away so that people can't see me directly. They give me plenty of tissues and reassure people that I am OK and will be OK in a few minutes.

    If you can get away from people, great. Tell people not to be sympathetic or kind, sounds horrible but I find it sets me off.

    I wonder if it's worth changing the drug to Barry's one, C. Have to ask your doctor because it might take a few weeks to do and for no gain.

    Your idea about writing something on invitations is good. Explain that Mnd has affected your emotions and that you could laugh or cry uncontrollably, even howl. Please don't be upset or worry about it, it's just a part of me now. Some won't understand but most will. It might also be good to write, try not to be sympathetic or over kind.

    Love Terry

    Miranda and Terry, awww thank you both for sharing your hints and tips, I think my Maid of Honour will have her hands full with my soggy tissues and my Mums lol My husband to be said that heíll ensure he has extra hankies and our exit song after our ceremony, walking down the isle together will be Huey Lewis and the News, The Power of Love which Iím hoping that if Iím crying, this will get my laughing as well as everyone else when they hear the track and theyíll bust out laughing and me and my husband will be bopping down the isle lol

    Hi Haylis,

    Please try not to worry and enjoy every second of your wedding. It sounds like it is going to be absolutely fantastic and everyone is allowed to cry at a wedding, anyway ! I love the idea of you and your new husband bopping down the isle to Huey Lewis.

    Love Debbie x
