MONDO EXTRAS

And the bride wore...

Some Guy explains that he approached Joan just as her lunch was arriving. Reportedly, she had ordered a huge turkey platter. Here there's actually a dramatic re-creation in which a waitress brings out a turkey platter and sets it in front of the camera! They make a big deal about this turkey thing. Apparently this was an mortifying moment for Joan. She's still embarrassed in the interview, even. I guess she didn't want Some Guy to know that she eats. Like she was hoping he'd think she was in the deli for some other reason. But in the end, she let him see her stuffing, and even her gravy, and it was a beautiful, beautiful thing.

Then they dated for a really long time and then he proposed and then, for some weird reason, decided to get married a week after the engagement.

THE DRESS: Joan's designer is named "Bob Evans." I guess they're really keeping with this deli theme or something. But there's nothing at all sausage-like about the dress he whips up. It's pretty classy, for something with a shrug.

THE CEREMONY: There are these big archways made of greenery all over the place, and they're lit up with twinkly lights. It looks like Santa Land, but then again Some Guy is Jewish, so it can't be. Some Guy says his vows blah blah blah. Joan says her vows blah blah blah. Tears. Laughter. Then the rabbi stomps on the glass that I guess represents the breaking of old traditions, or of Joan Lunden's journalistic integrity, or something like that. Mazel tov!

Toni Braxton and Herself

That's right: Grammy winner Toni Braxton isn't getting married to anyone; she's just trying on wedding gowns and being a big old princess. She's shown running around a lawn somewhere in all kinds of wedding dresses. She does make a very convincing woman sometimes. This is also the part of the show where various dress designers are interviewed and say Visionary Things About Wedding Dresses.

Toni twirls in one dress. She frolics in another. She feels fresh as a spring meadow. She's doing a photo shoot, apparently. She does this barefoot tippy-toe little run along the edge of a pool in an Elie Saab number with a long veil, which seems like a really bad idea. Actually, it looks like she is fleeing, in some sort of emergency, involving insects, getting caught in a bunch of mosquito netting, and having to run out of the house in her nightgown.

Richard Tyler lounges on a couch somewhere and says, "A bride should try on lots and lots of gowns until she feels very…comfortable." He's really old and creepy.

InStyle Celebrity Weddings The InStyle camera crew actually goes to this deli, while in a candid interview, Joan and Some Guy describe their love-at-first-sight moment. From what I can tell, it was something like this: their eyes met. The cheese glistened. Joan said to herself, "He's the one." The deli clerks smirked at the cameras. Wow. It's like we're there.
