    They were the main characters! The show revolved around that one family and handful of their friends. Those few surviving characters were then joined by a whole bunch of new characters and the show carried on for a further 6 years.

    Oh, here's another one, this time on As the World Turns:

    Paul was convinced his lady-love Rose was cheating on him with Dusty (she wasn't). Paul suddenly started acting all sweet to her and rushed her into getting married, while Dusty tried to warn her that Paul was out to hurt her. Barbara, Paul's over-protective and nutso mother, had threatened Rose's life on several occasions. She also turned her young son Will (Paul's half-brother) against Rose, telling him Rose would "take Paul away". When the wedding day occurred, the minister asked if there were any objections. Paul then revealed his true colors as he launched into a humiliating tirade against Rose, accusing her of cheating on him with Dusty and basically calling her a ho in front of the entire town. She then collapsed at the altar, and was hauled to the hospital. Turns out Rose had been poisoned, and after asking Paul "How could you do this to me?", she died!

    It looked like the groom had murdered the bride...

    Are we limiting this to soaps?

    Because Rhoda running through the streets of New York in full wedding regalia is an image that certainly sticks in the mind.

    The best I could find was a scene (3:25 into the clip) where she recalls some of it while in the hospital...



    Oh, and don't check your glasses--that is in fact Rose's identical twin sister Lily (same actress) in the scenes.

    Then when she kicks the ol' bucket (skip to 2:30) :

    Shame we didn't get the bit where she gets a dressing down and is called a ho in front of the entire town and then collapses.

    I recall her twin sister Lily was accused of gunning down her groom, Diego, at their wedding a few years before this spectacle with Rose.

    There's a reason we used to call Oakdale, their hometown, "Croakdale".

    I wonder what was on the floor that made the boat explode so fast? Some sort of liquid TNT?

    Wow, that was a bold move! Imagine in one cliffhanger they decided to kill the whole Ewing family! Certainly very risky. Probably great for the ratings. At least the show seems to have recovered from it and went on to flourish.

    Another World had a very complex coupling in Jake and Paulina. Their (second) wedding was a spectacle because she discovered (surprise!) that he was after her family's money. And here I thought they had established that years before when she shot him. Oh, well....that's soaps for ya. Jake should have learned to duck.

    OK, so technically this wasn't a wedding, but...


    This is a season cliffhanger from the Dutch soap GTST, the shooting (at the wedding party) starts at 11:00

    That was exciting!


    Pete and Debbie's wedding reception on Emmerdale was interrupted when bickering husband and wife Robert and Chrissy accidentally caused a helicopter to fall on the reception---but not before the groom found out his new wife had been fooling around with his brother, Ross.

    Very dramatic! The crash landing was really well done. Emmerdale has to be the unluckiest little village in all the UK. It's had a plane and a helicopter crash into it!

    It seems out of the unseen cliffhanger files from "Melrose Place"...Remember that initially Kimberly was going to make Syd crash a plane over the building but instead they went for the bombs...

    But the helicopter crash was caused by an explosion on the ground. I wonder what caused the fire that caused the explosion. Perhaps someone in the helicopter had accidentally dropped a lighter?o_O

    That's where the bickering husband and wife, Robert and Chrissie, come in. Chrissie set Robert's car on fire because she was mad at him.

    No both Chrissie and Robert came out unscathed in the disaster. Chrissie did face charges for setting the fire but managed to avoid going to jail and then Robert left her for Aaron, the man he had been having an affair with. Now Aaron and Robert are engaged and Chrissie is angry and bitter.
