Our Favorite TV Weddings, Part II: The Crazy and the Cringeworthy

No matter how much one insists on staging the perfect wedding, that special day doesn't always go according to plan. In this follow-up to Our Favorite TV Weddings, Part I: The Romantic, the Silly, and the Sweet, we've rounded up the televised nuptials that captured our hearts by being generally weird, wackier than expected, or otherwise going awry.

15. George Michael and Maeby, Arrested Development
George Michael, ever desperate to mack on Maeby, got thisclose! to marrying her in a fake show wedding for hospital patients.



14. Karen and Lyle, Will and Grace
Karen convinced J.Lo to perform at her wedding. And Jack convinced J.Lo that he had the moves to back her up.



13. Mork and Mindy, Mork and Mindy
These two get to honeymoon on Ork. Jealous?



12. Rose and Simon, 7th Heaven
This wedding had all the typical merriment, despite the fact that Rose and Simon said "I Don't" at the altar in what was going to be the series finale.

11. Kaitlin and Floyd, Cerie and her shipping tycoon, and Feyonce and Grizz, 30 Rock
Wherein Liz Lemon—always a bridesmaid, despite once purchasing a wedding dress—attends three ridiculous ceremonies and in so doing meets the pilot of her dreams.



10. Angela and Hodgins, Bones
Ironically, it took imprisonment to bring these two together for good.



9. Susan and Mike, Desperate Housewives
After a suspenseful season finale cliffhanger in which the bride-to-be was kept a mystery, we learned that yep, Susan and Mike went on to get married a second time. And not everyone was thrilled about it.



8. Constance and Howard, Party Down
Kyle sure stuck his foot in his mouth with this performance at Constance's reception. (And that was after Patrick Duffy showed up and Ron got punched in the face by Danielle's fiance during the vows.)



7. Charlotte and Harry, Sex and the City
Between Carrie's bad back, Miranda's speech flambe, and Charlotte's need to have everything be perfect, this might be one of the most ridiculous weddings in SATC history. But according to Carrie, "The worse the wedding, the better the marriage."



6. Phoebe and Cole, Charmed
Any wedding where Coolio shows up as a demon should go on some sort of list, no?



5. Eric and Allegra, The Sopranos
When a wedding guest list is made up of mafioso, something bad is bound to go down.



4. Margaret and Brooks, Mad Men
You're pretty much screwed when your wedding falls on the day after an international tragedy. In this epic episode that revolved around the assassination of JFK, hardly anyone showed up to attend Margaret and Brooks' wedding. But somehow Roger, the father of the bride, kept his cool and made a winning toast.



3. Lana and Lex, Smallville
Lana had to marry Lex Luthor to protect her true love, Clark. Talk about tragic.



2. Ellie and Awesome, Chuck
Thank goodness for Jeffster's performance of "Mr. Roboto" drowning out the gunshots in the reception hall.



1. Emily and Ross, Friends
Weddings were a relatively frequent occurrence on Friends (heck—in the pilot, Rachel showed up in her wedding dress and joined the gang after leaving Barry at the altar). But this union between Emily and Ross is perhaps the series' most controversial. From it, we learned wedding rule number one: Marry the one you really love.

Errr... George Micheal and Maeby's wedding WAS real! As the narrator said:



'The wedding was about as real and as binding as the porridge that was thrown at them!' If you'll remember, they also got marriage certificate as well!

How about How I Met Your Mother? Marshall and Lily deserve to be on this list. "Unmarry us!", anyone?

I'm glad that Angela and Hodgins are on there. Anya and Xander's wedding would have deserved to be on the list had they actually ended up getting married.

I would have put Kevin and Lucy or Matt and Sarah wedding over Simon and Rose. Simon and Rose didn't get married.

I agree with King. Yes, GMB and Maebe's wedding was fake, but goshdarn it was earnest.

George Michael and Maebe should've been ranked higher.
