TV weddings are a firm favourite with the public; millions tune in to catch a glimpse of an iconic fictional wedding from a much-loved TV Sitcom. People often associate as much personal and emotional significance to TV weddings as they would to real-life weddings with their own families or friends.
And since TV weddings are such a big hit with the viewers, let’s take a look back at the most memorable top 7 and take a trip down memory lane.
- Lily and Marshal: How I Met Your Mother.
They are known as the most stable couple on any long-running sitcom, and their wedding was not without its mishaps, including a last-minute change of plan when their venue took a different path. Still, the ceremony was heart-warming with a quiet and intimate setting of close friends only. Certainly, a much different kind of scene than the usual loud and complex plots we were used to seeing within tv series.
- Jesse and Becky: Full House
The show revealed a softer edge to the well-known John Stamos rebellious character ‘Jesse’, when he helped his brother in law raise his three daughters after becoming widowed.
The change didn’t end there because after that he met and wed Becky in an unforgettable ceremony that even had Jesse serenade for her wife-to-be.
They later went on to welcome twin boys of their own, and he started his own journey as a family man himself.
- The Red Wedding: Game of Thrones
Iconic tv weddings sometimes include some very unexpected surprises. Still, nothing prepared the fans for what they were about to witness in the wedding ceremony of Edmure Tully, and Walder Frey’s daughter.
This wedding, known as ‘The Red Wedding’ to fans, was a cover for a revenge attack on Robb Stark, who decided against marrying one of Frey’s daughters in favour of Talisa instead. Consequently, this led to the bloody massacre of Robb, his wife Talisa (who was pregnant at the time) and her mother, as well as the heartbreak of young Arya Stark who never got in time to reunite with her family.
