Memorable soap opera weddings.
With June here and being a favored month for weddings, we decided to take a look back at memorable, romantic, unforgettable, and at times often bizarre soap opera weddings that could only happen on daytime. Soap opera weddings have done it all and then some. Bold & Beautiful’s Brooke Logan is one of the most married characters in the genre, having married a father and his son, and half-brothers. The CBS soap opera is also known for its beautiful on-location weddings, such as Liam Spencer and Steffy Forrester’s Australian wedding in front of the Sydney Opera House.
In the 1980s it was all about the super couples, and Days of our Lives Doug and Julie Williams were the first. Weddings on the NBC soap opera were full of romance, big gowns, and often bigger hair. They also featured the song hits of the day, which came to be the signature tunes of super couples, such as Chris De Burg’s Lady in Red which was Steve and Kayla Johnson’s theme song.
When it came to soap opera weddings, General Hospital still remains the ultimate champ with Luke and Laura Spencer’s iconic wedding. The event was such a cultural phenomenon that people took off from work and stayed home from school to watch it.
Young & Restless has also seen its share of spectacular, and often questionable, marriages. From weddings based on business deals and organ donations to romantic elopements, the haves and have nots of Genoa City know how to throw a wedding.
