Soap operas are built on love and romance, so naturally, some of their most memorable moments are the gorgeous weddings where couples gather their friends and family around to finally become man and wife with the intention of living happily ever after! Of course, being soap operas, very few of these marriages actually stand the test of time, but that just means that there can be even more lovely wedding ceremonies in the future!
We've gathered classic photos from some of the most beautiful weddings from GENERAL HOSPITAL, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, and DAYS OF OUR LIVES. Plus, we've also included some ceremonies from the much-missed soaps ALL MY CHILDREN, ONE LIFE TO LIVE, AS THE WORLD TURNS, and GUIDING LIGHT!
