Trivia: It's interesting to note that in Monica and Chandler's wedding, and later Phoebe and Mike's wedding, they make up their own vows, spoken from the heart. In this wedding, Ross and Emily merely repeat after the officiant, suggesting that the marriage is not to be taken too seriously.
Trivia: Both Ross and Chandler made strange comments about each other's first girlfriends in their best man speeches. In this episode Chandler said Ross over inflated his first girlfriend and in "The One With Monica and Chandler's Wedding" Ross said that Chandler's first girlfriend couldn't control her bladder.
Continuity: When Ross and Emily's parents meet for the first time, Judy Geller makes the joke that this may be the only wedding they get to throw, referring to Monica never getting married. However, Ross was married once before to Carol and, presumably, already had a wedding.
Note: Since it is generally the bride's parents who "throw the wedding", Judy's statement may in fact be true. In the case of Ross's wedding, Carol's parents would likely have paid for it.
Continuity Error: Although the wedding dress Emily is wearing is similar to the one picked up by Monica in "The One with All the Wedding Dresses," it is clearly a different design. What's more, Emily is wearing a matching jacket that was not with the dress Monica picked up, and a tiara instead of the veil Monica wore.
Goof: When the wedding begins, the first bridesmaid walks down the aisle with a man, dressed in the same attire as the best men. He is not seen again, and the only men in the wedding party are Joey and Chandler.
Goof: When Ross and Emily's parents are arguing at the church, Jack Geller's hands, as well as his glasses and the paper, switch positions whenever the camera angle changes. When Ross breaks up the argument, saying "This is our wedding day," a camera angle briefly appears with Ross speaking, but his lips are completely out of sync with the words being spoken.
Goof: When the bridesmaid finds Joey and he's supposed to be watching for Rachel, the bridesmaid closes the door. But when they start kissing, the door is completely open.
Goof: When Monica and Ross discuss how Emily decided to call off the wedding, Monica is wearing a black watch on her left wrist that disappears and reappears throughout the scene.
Factual Error: When the scene cuts from Chandler and Joey's hotel room to the church right before the wedding, it goes via a shot of the Houses of Parliament in which St Stephen's Clock Tower clearly shows that it is after 8pm, a fact borne out by how dark it is outside and the fact that Rachel arrives before the wedding despite having only left New York the same day. Marriages in England and Wales are only legal between the hours of 8am and 6pm unless one of the couple is house-bound, so Ross and Emily's marriage should not be legally binding.
Trivia: When Phoebe gives Rachel a picture of Ross you can see that it's a picture of him from the episode "The One with Chandler in a Box."
Factual Error: In the opening sequence, after Monica comes in to Chandler and Joey's apartment, Chandler says they will be on a six hour trip to London. A flight from New York to London actually takes about eight hours.
Editor's Note: References to the Concorde's flight times have been removed. They were added to dispute the accuracy of the original post, but don't apply here since no such aircraft were involved. Most sources agree that standard, non-stop commercial flights take between 6-1/2 and 7 hours to fly from New York to London. Return trips take approximately one hour longer due to prevailing winds. Said another way, Chandler's original statement of "six hours" is close enough to the truth for such a casual reference.
Continuity: It is odd that Ross's son, Ben, would not be in or at least at his father's wedding. He was in Carol and Susan's wedding in "The One with the Lesbian Wedding."
Trivia: The opening sequence contains some pretty significant spoilers. For one thing, it shows Rachel leaving the apartment with suitcases, buying a ticket and showing up in London. The other one, perhaps the biggest spoiler, is a shot of Monica and Chandler in bed together.
Goof: In the very beginning of the scene where Phoebe and Rachel get the call from Joey, a crew member can be seen walking out of the shot on the left.
Trivia: The hat salesman is played by Sir Richard Branson, the man who created the Virgin Group ltd. (Virgin Records, Virgin Airlines, etc). If you look over Joey's shoulder when they are at the hat stand, there is a red baseball cap displaying the Virgin logo.
Trivia: The book that Phoebe asks Chandler to bring her, is the same book that Joey reads in the beginning of "The One with the Rumor."
Goof: When Phoebe is talking on the phone with Emily's mother and making a sandwich, she puts mayo on her sandwich. But at the end of the conversation there is no mayo on her sandwich.
Goof: When Rachel and Phoebe are discussing if she loves Ross, Phoebe's necklace switches sides constantly between shots.
Goof: When Ross, Emily, and Monica are going to see the church, Monica questions the food. After she claps her hands, the camera angle changes and her hands are down with no time to do so. Then Monica claps again.
Continuity: During his best man speech at the rehearsal dinner, Joey says, "I first met Ross in this coffee house back home..." But technically, we learned in "The One with the Flashback", that Joey actually met Ross in the bar that eventually became the coffee shop, but was still a bar at the time.
