Dontcha just love big, splashy weddings on soap operas?
After more than 25 years as a viewer, I still get excited to see all the pomp and circumstance. The pretty dresses. The stylish tuxes. The flowers. The vows.
Oh, yeah. And the inevitable glitch. Usually in the form of a presumed dead spouse … or a jealous ex hell-bent on revenge … or a huge secret finally revealed.
Talk about drama.
Recently, One Life to Live pulled out all the stops with the wedding of Rex/Adriana.
How absolutely stunning did everyone look? Which is apropos considering how absolutely stunned everyone was when Gigi (Farah Fath) stood up and declared her love for Rex (John-Paul Lavoisier).

Yee. Haw.
It doesn’t get much better than that, folks. That’s classic soap, right there.
Now, All My Children is gearing up for some nuptials of its own. Jesse and Angie will be tying the knot in a big to-do that promises some fireworks, especially with smarmy Robert Gardner still lurking around targeting the Hubbards.
The previews of the wedding already have me feeling giddy with anticipation. Debbi Morgan and Darnell Williams look amazing. What an incredibly beautiful pair they make.

Oooh, and Greg Nelson (Laurence Lau) has returned to Pine Valley for the occasion, bringing back so many great memories. In fact, there’s already been some more flashbacks with Jenny and the rest of that 1980s crew.
It’s wonderful to see AMC actually honoring its history, particularly such a pivotal time for the show.
It’s that kind of stuff that I like to call the icing on the soap-wedding cake.

    I loved both weddings & their aftermaths!
    For the first time in months I had some empathy for Adrianna after she punched Gigi & exclaimed “you don’t know what it took for us to get here, how many tried to stop us, etc.” I’ve never been big on Rex/Adrianna but it did remind me of all it took for them to get to the altar. I like Gigi, but she deserved the smackdown. & Brody is a lot better looking without the beard.
    Jesse/Angie’s wedding I must’ve watched that 3x over the weekend, absolutely beautiful from start to finish. except the kidnapping of course lol
    I was pretty vexed yesterday that they didn’t show new episodes of the soaps (I really don’t get the point of showing reruns, especially when most soap viewers are actually home to watch!). Can’t wait to get home tonight to see how that all plays out.
