Everybody loves a wedding episode – the romance, the beautiful gowns, the tendency for everything to go wrong because it’s a sitcom… and of course, Friends has plenty of wedding episodes for fans to enjoy. Each of the main characters gets married at least once, except for Joey – and Ross gets married so many times it becomes a running joke! In addition, a few other wedding episodes sneak in, with secondary characters tying the knot.
8.The One With The Lesbian Wedding – 8.1
This season two episode was centered on Carol and Susan’s wedding, but of course, the main plot was about how the Friends gang were affected. Ross was having his usual freakouts about the entire situation, and was unimpressed that Monica had agreed to cater it. Phoebe, meanwhile, was possessed by the spirit of a client who died on her massage table, and started acting like a stereotypical older woman, only finally departing when she had ‘seen everything’.
7.The One With Barry And Mindy’s Wedding – 8.2
Barry (the man Rachel left at the alter) is getting married to Mindy (Rachel’s previous best friend, who was cheating with Barry at the time). Mindy still asks Rachel to be her maid of honor, and Rachel actually accepts… only to be dressed in a hideous pink ballgown and paraded through a room of people who have been told she left Barry because of STD-related insanity.
6.The One With All The Cheesecakes – 8.6
Ross is invited to Cousin Franny’s wedding, but Monica isn’t – and in typical high-strung Monica style, she flips out about the snub, eventually forcing Ross to take her as his guest. Their part of the episode ends with the reveal that Monica wasn’t invited because Franny was marrying one of her exes… an awkward-but-funny gag, but definitely a forgettable one.
5.The One With Ross’s Wedding – 8.7
After a whirlwind romance of only a few weeks, the two get engaged and pull off a last-minute (and surprisingly stunning) wedding in London.
4.The One With Monica And Chandler’s Wedding: Part 1 – 8.9
Monica and Chandler are the only couple to get a two-episode wedding, and both parts are loved by fans – although Part 1 doesn’t get quite as high a rating as the actual wedding itself. In this build-up episode, Monica starts out by telling Chandler she is surprised he hasn’t freaked out yet… so of course, during the episode, he freaks out about being ‘The Bings’ and that ‘The Bings have terrible marriages’.
3.The One With Phoebe’s Wedding – 8.9
Mike is introduced to the gang in season nine, but despite his relatively short time on the show, fans absolutely loved the episode where he and Phoebe get married.
2.The One In Vegas: Part 2 – 9.1
Ross and Rachel’s wedding isn’t a lavish and carefully planned affair – but a drunk mistake in Vegas. That doesn’t stop it from being one of the most-loved (and funniest) episodes of the show, of course. The gang come to town to see Joey, but Ross ‘pranks’ Rachel by drawing a mustache on her face on the plane.
1.The One With Monica And Chandler’s Wedding: Part 2 – 9.2
Finally, the most popular wedding in Friends is the moment that Chandler and Monica actually say ‘I do’. There are the usual speedbumps – Chandler ends up thinking Monica is pregnant, Joey (the officiant) ends up presiding in a World War movie costume, Rachel is actually pregnant and hiding it, and they nearly miss their ceremony. But at the end of it all, fans get a sweet moment with all their favorite characters coming together, big moments for everyone, and a sweet exchange of vows.
