As Young & Restless’ Ashland and Victoria Head Down the Aisle, Peek Inside Our Special Wedding Scrapbook
You’re cordially invited… to check out these show-stopping fashions!
While we generally think of The Bold and the Beautiful as being the show on which fashion plays a crucial role, The Young and the Restless proves this week that it knows a thing or two about glitz and glamour as your favorite stars get all dolled up for the wedding of Victoria Newman and Ashland Locke.

Obviously, there’s been a whole lot of drama leading up to the big event, what with the groom’s secrets slowly coming to light. “Through it all,” says Ashland’s portrayer, Richard Burgi, “Victoria has stood by him. And at this moment in time, there is nothing he wants more than to see what their life together will bring. She is at at a place in her life where she can not only be supportive of Ashland but meet him in this place where they’re both ready to live a more full, vibrant life than maybe either of them was able to before.”
Now, their friends and loved ones have gathered in Tuscany, Italy for what promises to be the wedding of the year… or the disaster of the century, given that at least a few people would love nothing more than to see the ceremony turn into a train wreck.

Even should the worst come to pass, however, at least everyone in attendance will look their very best. From the most adorable ring bearer ever to the special guests who themselves just tied the knot, Genoa City’s finest will be dressed to the nines. Join us now as we take a moment to peruse the photo gallery below featuring outfits worn to not only the big event the some of the events surrounding it. Don’t worry if you’re feeling a tad underdressed… we’re still in our pajamas.
<p>Sally and Adam are just friends… who’ve made out. Anybody else get the impression from this pic that they’re considering updating their respective Facebook statuses to “It’s Complicated”? </p>
<p>Clearly, Sally has a secret to share with Adam. Of course, if said secret is how hot they look together… we’re afraid that’s not exactly breaking news. </p>
<p>If looking good is the best revenge, Lily’s ex is definitely off somewhere, licking his wounds. </p>
<p>Where Lily and Billy are concerned, the answer to that question appears to be a resounding yes! Who knew attending the wedding of your ex-wife to a man you’re pretty sure is going to break her heart could be such a good time?</p>
<p>What jet lag? Sure, it takes about 12 hours to fly from Wisconsin to Italy, but we’re going to assume Elena slept on the flight. How else to explain how she arrived looking so drop-dead gorgeous? </p>
<p>Oddly enough, whenever Nate enters the room, hearts start beating faster, and we begin wondering, “Is it hot in here, or is it just him?” </p>
<p>Here’s the thing about wedding photographers: Just when you ask yourself, “When are they going to snap our picture?” they do, catching you off guard. Fortunately for Nate and Elena, they look better “off guard” then we’ll ever look “on guard”! </p>
<p>There’s a reason they call him “Smilin’ Jack,” and you’re gazing at it. Given how great he looks in this tux, you can be forgiven if you mistook him for either the groom or James Bond! </p>
<p>Sure, we didn’t actually get to see <a href="https://soaps.sheknows.com/the-young-and-the-restless/news/611317/young-restless-kyle-summer-fans-deserve-real-wedding/" target="_blank">Summer walk down the aisle</a> — we’re gonna be bitter about that one for a while — but it’s not hard to imagine just how gorgeous she must have looked in her Marchetti original.</p>
<p>Given that Jack looked like he stepped right out of an old-school Bond flick, it should be no surprise that his son looks like the up-and-comer ready to take on his first mission. “Abbott. Kyle Abbott.” </p>
<p>Looks like Kyle lost this round of rock, paper, scissors and, as a result, will have to do the chicken dance with his new wife. Good thing Summer’s not the type to gloat about her victory… much. </p>
<p>Kyle and Summer faced more than a few obstacles over the years, so they’ve definitely earned their happily ever after. Of course, this being a soap, who knows how long it will actually last! </p>
<p>This picture is downright adorable… although it gets a tiny bit awkward when you remember that for a while there, it looked as if Summer was Jack’s daughter and Kyle’s half sister! Perhaps best not to think on that too much… </p>
<p>Leslie Brooks may not have lived in Genoa City for many years, but she still has friends in high places… namely, Victor and Nikki, who were able to arrange for the world-famous pianist to put in a special appearance at the wedding! </p>
<p>Given how much Nick and his sister have been bickering of late, we can’t help but think he’s glad to have son Noah by his side for Victoria’s big day. Meanwhile, we can’t wait to see what newly returned Noah gets up to now that he’s home from London. (Anyone else suspect there might be a broken heart or two across the pond?) </p>
<p>Nikki’s got her reservations about Ashland, but that’s really nothing new. She also had concerns about Ryan… and Cole… and Brad… and Billy. As it turns out, mother really does know best in most cases. </p>
<p>Victoria learned everything she knows about love and relationships from her parents, Victor and Nikki. Now what that says about her future with Ashland is open to interpretation! </p>
<p>Much as Tessa hoped Mariah might join her in Tuscany, she knew this was too big an opportunity to pass up. (Meanwhile, how much are we loving the fringe on this outfit?) </p>
<p>If this picture doesn’t make you go “Awww!” you might have the same syndrome as did the Grinch before his heart grew three sizes that day. You know, the day he heard the Whos down in Whoville singing. And now we can’t stop thinking that Harrison could easily be the twin brother of little Cindy Lou Who. </p>
<p>Of course, we saved the best for last. Despite any qualms she might have, given recent revelations about the groom, Victoria’s going into her wedding day with a smile on her face and looking downright gorgeous! </p>
<p>Life’s been pretty stressful for Victoria of late, so here’s hoping that once she becomes the newest Mrs. Ashland Locke, the bride hits the dance floor with abandon. Enjoy it while it lasts, because we sense trouble is right around the corner… </p>
