Our Favorite Fictional Weddings

  • Cinderella Carriage

    Let’s admit that as we become fans of television sitcoms, movies, books, and then more movies from books, we begin to root for a destined pair to finally become a couple. Obstacles, challenges, and antagonist characters stand in their way. A wedding becomes a monumental moment in entertainment that makes the audience laugh, hold its breath, or cry.

    Let’s look at a few of our favorite fictional weddings that do just that.

  • Cinderella

    Cinderella

    We could make an argument for every princess wedding to make the list. This timeless classic has countless versions. In the 1950 Disney original, it ends with the bride, Cinderella, and Prince Charming making a grand exit after the wedding. She loses her shoe on the red steps, retrieves it, and is whisked away in a horse-drawn carriage to live happily ever after.

  • The Sound of Music

    The Sound of Music

    Finally, Captain Georg Von Trapp and Maria wed after she is a governess to his seven unruly children.

However, the honeymoon is short-lived when Nazi soldiers summon the captain after Austria is annexed by Germany.

  • Friends: Ross and Emily

    Friends: Ross and Emily

Of course, we can't forget the other monumental “Friends” weddings—Chandler and Monica, along with Phoebe and Mike.

The climatic moment is when Benjamin bangs on the glass behind the ceremony and Elaine decides to flee with him.

    Saved By The Bell: Zach and Kelly

    We watched them grow up from junior high to college. In the two-hour finale of the 90s hit show, “Saved By the Bell,” Zack Morris and Kelly Kapowsi finally tie the knot in Vegas. The adventure is complete with cheesy Screech moments, a montage of past episodes, and even a Mr. Belding cameo.
