Soap Opera Wedding

Every Friday night I try to post another term of Soap Opera Jargon. Find more on the soap opera jargon page.

Soap Opera Wedding – Weddings can take all shapes and sizes on soap operas, but the term soap opera wedding is normally applied to the extremely lavish weddings that were especially common on soap operas during the 1980s. These weddings often were shot on location at some gorgeous old house or exotic location. Although they didn’t have a lot of bridesmaids and groomsmen, their outfits are normally very elaborate, especially the groomsmen. They also involve a big reception, elaborate presents, decorations, and an extremely fancy cake. The term comes from the weddings on soap operas, but the term is actually applied to weddings in real life that are viewed as overly elaborate.

Robansuefarm is the handle of one of Manny and Guiding Light‘s biggest fans following in her family’s footsteps of Guiding Light fandom since 1939. This blog is an effort to make it easy to find Guiding Light and especially Manny online. Check back here for her blog, find fanfic previews and fake WSPR newscasts on her YouTube, find podcasts that look back to old shows and audios of her fanfics on Blog Talk Radio, and finally follow her on Twitter and Facebook.
