The TV show Friends is one for the books – classic episodes accomplished through funny scenarios, and of course we cannot forget about the best part of all, the characters in TV show Friends.
The One with all the Friends weddings.Anyone who knows me knows how much I love the TV show Friends. I compare everyday life situations to Friends – sad I know, but things happen in that show you never think would happen in real life, but they do. A co-worker getting married over Labor Day weekend is using white strips and she said she kept them on longer than she was supposed to – UH OH, another mistake by Friends character Ross Gellar; don’t do that or you may want to avoid any black lights! One of my family members has actually received Christmas gifts purchased from a gas station just like Friends characters Chandler Bing and Joey Tribbiani in one of the earlier seasons. When you are watching them your first few times you don’t realize these things happen, you just laugh and enjoy the show. Well your next several hundred times through each episode you begin to realize these things do happen to people. Being in the wedding industry now, any little wedding details anywhere pop out at me. Every night I randomly select a Friends disc to pop in. Recently, I selected the discs including the Friends episode "The One with All the Wedding Dresses" and Friends episode "The One with the Cheap Wedding Dress." I am curious to know if there is anybody out there who has experienced either of the situations from these episodes.
The One with all the Wedding Dresses.In the Friends episode "The One with All the Wedding Dresses," Friends character Monica Gellar has to pick-up a wedding dress belonging to her future sister-in-law, Emily. Emily lives in London, but her dream bridal gown is in her size in New York City. Ross, not wanting to see the dress before the wedding, sends his sister Monica to pick it up. Friends character Phoebe Buffay tags along with to the pick-up appointment. While they are there, the bridal consultant assumes Monica is Emily, and asks her if she wants to try on the bridal dress. Monica, never having tried on a bridal gown before, says yes. Monica stands in the dress until the bridal consultant has to ask her to leave because the store is closing. Later, Monica is complaining about doing the dishes. To make her chore a better experience, Monica puts Emily’s wedding dress on while she does the dishes. Shortly after putting on the dress, she hears a knock at her door. Friends character Phoebe Buffay is outside, insisting Monica has to open the door immediately. Monica knows she can trust Phoebe, so she opens the door to find her also wearing a bridal gown! After awhile reluctantly change out of their dresses. Meanwhile, Friends character Rachel Green is going through a rough time knowing her ex-beau and other Friends character Ross Gellar is getting married. To cheer her up, Monica and Phoebe recommend some fun…putting on the bridal gownsand watching a movie. In the Friends pilot episode, Rachel left her fiancé at the altar, and still has her bridal dress.
