Episode Recap

The episode starts with Dede the runaway bride returning to The Wedding Palace and demanding another shot at getting married, and Annie Bell reluctantly accepts her request. With Dede and Luke's wedding in the works again, the Bell sisters grapple with having to run two weddings in one day as the 60-something Candace gets ready for her fourth marriage to the handsome 30-something Robert. Sammy engages in a bit of flirtation with the attractive young Robert while she gives him dancing lessons, and the Bells wonder if Sammy would really go so far as to seduce a groom. With the planning under way for the upcoming weddings, former Bridezilla Amanda Pontell threatens The Wedding Palace with a steep lawsuit, claiming that they ruined her happy day and should pay accordingly. Meanwhile, Ralph the wedding singer comes down with laryngitis and hires a substitute singer who just happens to be the assistant coordinators ex-boyfriend, bringing even more tension to the already frenzied Palace. Annie pleads with Amanda not to sue and take away everything that she and her siblings had worked their whole lives to build, and Amanda offers the Bells an unwelcome compromise. While Dede prepares for her second try at a normal marriage ceremony, it's the groom who has the jitters this time.
