When rumors started swirling yesterday that a Friends reunion had been announced, our hearts skipped a beat. Visions of Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Chandler, Ross, and Joey at Central Perk filled our heads and then we got the big news! The cast will be reuniting for a two-hour special on NBC to honor Friends director James Burrows (he directed 15 episodes of Friends). Ok, so it's not the dream reunion at Chandler and Monica's Westchester home we all dreamed of, but seeing the cast together again will gives us all the feels. And it got us reminiscing big time about the most amazing wedding moments between our favorite '90s group of friends. From Chandler and Monica to Phoebe and Mike and a few others in between, we take a look back at the best wedding moments on Friends.

The Pilot
Our Friends adventure begins with a wedding bang! After choosing not to become Mrs. Dr. Barry Farber, DDS, Rachel Green runs to old friend Monica Geller for help and storms into Central Perk. Doesn't get more '90s than her puffy dress and glorious headpiece. Twenty-something adventures, laughs, and our favorite "will they or won't they" romance of all time ensue, all thanks to the wedding that never was.

The One With Barry and Mindy's Wedding
We've all been there, you're asked to be a bridesmaid, all seems ok, and then comes the dress. Revisiting the events of the Pilot, Rachel faced her fears and served as bridesmaid at former fiancé Barry's wedding to her former best friend Mindy (why they recast the role originated by Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey is beyond us). Her "pepto bismol" pink dress with matching hat led to this wonderful joke: "I'm sorry, we don't have your sheep." Thanks Chandler.

The One with Ross's Wedding
"I Ross, take thee Rachel..." Grooms everywhere take note: saying the wrong name at the altar is the ultimate wedding faux-pas. Ross headed down the aisle to marry Emily with thoughts of Rachel Green in his head and wound up uttering the wrong lady's name as he said his vows. Emily went through with the nuptials anyway to save face, but locked herself in the bathroom for the rest of the night and Ross famously headed to divorce number two.

The One in Vegas
Ok, maybe Ross and Rachel don't make the case for a drunken Vegas elopement, but come on..."Well, hello Mrs. Ross." and "Well , hello Mr. Rachel" has to be one of the best post-wedding greetings of all time. Not to mention that this third wedding, and subsequent third divorce, earned Ross the nickname Ross, the Divorce Force.

The One With Monica and Chandler's Wedding
Classic, elegant, and perfectly planned, of course that would be eternal type A icon Monica's wedding. A missing groom, pregnant bridesmaid, and WW1 soldier-attired officiant didn't halt the union of the Bings.

The One with Phoebe's Wedding
Before they were Princess Consuela Banana Hammock and Crap Bag, Phoebe Buffay and Mike Hannigan tied the knot in a romantic outdoor winter wedding. Everything that can go wrong goes wrong for the couple and they still manage to make it down the aisle in spectacular, albeit cold, fashion (thanks to a little help from the best wedding planner of all time, Monica).
