Whether it's a family member, a sibling, or a close friend—there's nothing that gets us teary-eyed quite like seeing someone we care about get married.
You look at them standing at the altar, nervous and weepy and smiley all at once, and all you can see is the little kid you used to play in the yard with, the awkward middle schooler you had slumber parties with, the 18-year-old you used to sneak into bars with, and all of a sudden you're CRYING. You're crying not just because this is such a big moment in their life, but you're also crying for the passage of time. The people you were, the people you are, and the people you'll become.
The feeling stays with you throughout the ceremony, while you're drinking room temperature Amstel Light at cocktail hour, and while you're dancing to the Black Eyed Peas on the dance floor. How did we get here? How are we so old? You cry for it all. And that's why there's no better wedding card than this Sob at Your Wedding Card ($5, Emily McDowell Studio). It doesn't come with tissues. Pack your own.
Emily McDowell Studio sometimes provides me with cool and new products to take a look at because I love their work and want to spread the word about how awesome it is.
