5 Best TV Wedding Episodes (& 5 Of The Worst) | ScreenRant

When it comes to love, weddings are one of the biggest milestones possible. They're joyous celebrations that have the potential to be magical. However, sometimes things don't always go as planned and weddings can be more disastrous than planned. Bridezillas, runaway grooms, and of course, the unwanted guest all have the potential to turn a once-in-a-lifetime day into a real-life nightmare.

Just like in real life, TV weddings are one mistake away from going from dreamlike to a nightmare. Some TV wedding specials soar above the rest, becoming one of the most-watched episodes of the show. Other times they're a total disaster causing viewers to laugh at their OTP's horrible luck. And sometimes wedding episodes are terrible because the couple isn't a popular ship in the fandom.

10 Best: Parks And Recreation - "Leslie And Ben" (Season 5, Episode 14)

Leslie and Ben are often seen as the most popular couple in Parks & RecreationAfter seasons of following their chaotic love story, the two finally tied the knot in season 5. Though in typical Leslie and Ben fashion, the wedding wasn't picture perfect.

The two planned to have an impromptu wedding after the charity gala but pulling it together proves to be difficult, even with the whole department involved. In the end, they pull it off (sort of) and get married in front of their closest friends inside the Parks department. Despite the chaos, it proved that nothing could stand in Leslie and Ben's way.

9 Worst: Superstore - "Sandra's Wedding" (Season 5, Episode 14)

"Sandra's Wedding" was a big episode for Superstore not only because it was Sandra's wedding, but also because it was one of the few times the employees were seen outside of Cloud 9.

Despite Sandra's best efforts, her wedding is a disaster. Carol crashes it which has Dina on high alert causing her to abandon her maid of honor duties. The catering company quits after talking with Jonah, and to top it all off, Carol nearly kills Sandra's cat. Though Sandra and Jerry do get married, it's a total mess and Sandra definitely deserved better.

8 Best: This Is Us - "R & B" (Season 3, Episode 17)

There's been a handful of wedding episodes in This Is Us but the fan-favorite has been the one devoted to Beth and Randall -- largely because the episode tells their entire love story from beginning to present day.

Wanting to live up to his late dad's romantic gestures, Randall tries his best to pour his heart into his vows but it turns out to be harder than he thought. Beth is also having trouble with her vows which is how they end up in the same room, writing their vows with each other. It's a tenderhearted moment that proves Beth and Randall are the best couple on the show.

7 Worst: Friends - "The One With Ross's Wedding" (Season 4, Episode 23 & 24)

With 10 seasons, Friends had several wedding-themed episodes over the years but none were as disastrous and iconic as Ross's wedding to Emily. Somehow they made their toxic relationship look like a dream in the wake of their even more toxic wedding.

Everything that can go wrong does go wrong from demolished wedding venues to saying the wrong name at the altar. While it may be one of the greatest moments in the Ross and Rachel history, it goes down as one of the worst weddings ever.

6 Best: Boy Meets World - "It's About Time" (Season 7, Episode 7)

Cory and Topanga were always destined to marry each other so when they finally tied the knot on Boy Meets World it was a huge deal.

In the episode, Cory finds himself in a fight with his best friend/best man Shawn, who begins to fear that Topanga is going to replace him as Cory's best friend. Eric also gets into some trouble when he pretends to be someone else to get Cory and Topanga's wedding moved there. Despite all the chaos, Cory and Topanga stick close together and get married, proving it really is them against the world.

5 Worst: New Girl - "The Curse of the Pirate Bride" (Season 7, Episode 7)

It's clear that Nick and Jess are the iconic will-they won't-they couple of New Girl which is why fans were so disappointed in their wedding episode during the final season of the show.

Things get off to a bad start when Nick and Jess decided to spend the night before the wedding together, despite the bad luck superstition. Exes resurface, Jess scratches her cornea landing her in a hilarious eye patch, and Nick lands himself in a cast. This all leads to them exchanging their vows in the hospital lobby which is about as unromantic as it gets.

4 Best: Schitt's Creek - "Happy Endings" (Season 6, Episode 14)

While Schitt's Creek had a bunch of iconic couples on the show, the series only featured one wedding episode: Patrick and David's. While the wedding did have its obstacles, they managed to pull it together in a dreamlike way and proved that Patrick and David were the best couple.

Things get off to a rough start when a rainstorm causes Patrick and David to have to search for a new venue. Add Alexis's wearing a wedding gown and Moria's interesting officiating to the mix and the wedding could have been a recipe for disaster. Instead, Patrick and David turn the whole thing around with their heartfelt and simple vows.

3 Worst: Fuller House - "Our Very Last Show, Again" (Season 5, Episode 18)

Not only did Fuller House's "Our Very Last Show, Again" feature a triple wedding, but it also served as the show's series finale. Ultimately, there was just too much going on in one episode for anything to stand out.

Fans were mostly disappointed that Steve and DJ didn't get the solo wedding they deserved after decades of shipping the couple. People were also confused why Danny didn't walk Stephanie down the aisle since DJ had previously been married. Ultimately, this was a rushed episode that didn't showcase the magic of love.

2 Best: New Girl - "Landing Gear" (Season 5, Episode 22)

While Nick and Jess's wedding may have been a complete disaster, Cece and Schmidt pulled off the wedding of their dreams in the season 5 episode "Landing Gear." And like most New Girl episodes, it's full of chaos.

Schmidt tries to pull off the ultimate romantic gesture by trying one last time to get Cece's mother on board with their wedding. However, Schmidt finds himself stuck on a plane while Cece's mom is already in Los Angeles. The gang ends up having the reception without Schmidt but things take a turn for the better when Schmidt and Cece finally get to exchange vows in the privacy of the loft surrounded by those closest to them.

1 Worst: Game Of Thrones - "The Rains of Castamere" (Season 3, Episode 9)

HBO's Game of Thrones might not be the first show someone thinks of when they're thinking about wedding episodes, but the series did have a memorable wedding episode -- for all the wrong reasons. In fact, some might argue that the "Red Wedding" is one of the most iconic wedding episodes of all time.

The whole wedding was a disaster from the start, born out of revenge rather than love as Edmure is forced to wed one of Lord Frey's daughters as compensation. Things take a more tragic turn when the guests in attendance learn the wedding was a setup and the massacre begins. Nothing says world's worst wedding more than bloodshed and death.
