Five Great TV Weddings
I’m getting married on Saturday! Jim and Pam’s wedding was very exciting for me, since like most brides, I have an unhealthy obsession with studying other people’s weddings—even televised fictional ones. Here are some of my favorites.
1. Jim and Pam – The Office
The crew takes a trip to Niagara Falls for Jim and Pam’s big day. Dwight wore a Three-Wolf Moon t-shirt. Their wedding party ripped off that ubiquitous YouTube video of a real-life wedding party dancing down the aisle to a Chris Brown song, but it was okay because Jim and Pam had their own private wedding on a boat. It was perfectly romantic and hilarious.
2. Prince Charles and Lady Diana
Over 750 million people watched this ceremony on the small screen. 3500 people were invited to St. Paul’s Cathedral that day. The 20-year-old bride rolled up in a glass carriage. Her train was 25 feet long! It was a fairytale beginning to a tragic story.
Though everything went wrong that day—Lily’s veil was ruined, her ex-boyfriend showed up, the harp player was in labor, the photographer got beat up, Marshall had his hair highlighted and then shaved it right down middle—but Marshmellow and Lily-Pad got married! It was as lovey-dovey as we hoped—Barney married them in a field outside the wedding venue before the official ceremony, and more importantly, Barney cried.
4. Miranda and Steve – Sex and the City
Carrie had just found out that Samantha had breast cancer, so this was an especially emotional episode before the wedding even started. Miranda hated traditional weddings, so she wore a burgundy suit and married Steve in a simple garden ceremony.
5. Monica and Chandler – Friends
Of all the Friends weddings, this one’s my favorite. The aisle and altar banter is hilarious. Plus, Rachel had just found out that she’s pregnant, and Chandler thought he and Monica were having a baby.
