It’s 20 years today since Monica and Chandler got married in Friends: How the TV wedding of the 21st century almost didn’t happen…
On this day 20 years ago, Shrek was riding high at the Box Office, S Club 7 were number one with Don’t Stop Movin’ and millions up on millions of us were inconsolable as Monica and Chandler, the one unbreakable couple in Friends, got married.
Monica had the dress of her dreams after fighting tooth and nail; Chandler managed to overcome has last minute panic of spending the rest of his life as one half of ‘the Bings’ and they took one step closer to their dream suburban life with adopted baby twins in their Westchester County home. While Ross and Rachel squabbled over the definition of a break, Friends found its most solid couple in Monica and Chandler who low key gave the sitcom its heart. But, actually, Monica and Chandler was never even meant to be a thing. Their one night in London was initially supposed to be just that until the fans had their say and writers Marta Kauffman and David Crane caved.
‘We had no idea what response that was going get,’ Marta previously said. But the studio audience was so shocked, filming had to be paused. ‘We thought it was going to be funny and we were going to get rid of it,’ she continued.
‘Suddenly the audience told us they had been waiting for that and we had to rethink how we were going to keep going and change the relationship. But that wasn’t a person — it was an entire, immediate expression of joy.’ Initially, Monica was supposed to hook up with Joey – which wasn’t only a storyline that played out on the show, but the writers were poised to set the unlikely pair up because they were ‘the most sexual of the characters’. But 20 years on, where would Monica and Chandler be now?
Well, it’s likely that will be among the main talking points in the upcoming Friends Reunion on HBO Max, as well as the lives of Ross, Rachel, Joey, and Phoebe when the cast finally come together for the very first time since the final episode aired in May 2004.
