Who Will Get Married on Grey's Anatomy?

at . Comments

Grey's Anatomy series creator Shonda Rhimes has already confirmed that one of the show's couples will tie the knot later this season - the only question is who.

There's increasing buzz, according to EW, that the event will take place on May 7, during the show's landmark 100th episode, appropriately titled "Beautiful Day."

Adding to the speculation: The episode will feature a minister.

The bigger question than when it will happen, of course, is who is walking down the aisle? One source close to Grey's Anatomy says Derek and Meredith will finally, finally take the plunge - something a show spokesperson would not confirm or deny.

Keep in mind, though, that Rhimes said Grey's viewers would be surprised by the bride and groom's identities. What would be surprising about a Mer-Der wedding?

Mer-Der Hugs

Maybe the speed with which it would have taken place. Sure, the star-crossed lovers have been dating for four years, but a May 7 wedding would make for a lightning-fast engagement - considering the two aren't even technically engaged yet.

While it's unofficial, all signs point to Meredith accepting Dereks's elevator proposal this Thursday night in the also appropriately-titled "Elevator Love Letter."

"Shonda is probably counting on fans thinking a Der-Mer engagement would be just as drawn out as their courtship," speculates one Grey's Anatomy insider.

"So to marry them off seven weeks after getting engaged would certainly qualify as a surprise."

Thoughts? Would a Mer-Der wedding catch you off guard? Or is Shonda pulling a fast one and having another Grey's Anatomy couples tie the knot?

I'm in agreeance with Owen/Christina. I would really hate to see him leave.


I reeeaalllly hope it will be MerDer but just reading what you've all written, it might be A/I or even Denny and Izzie! Who knows?? What if it were even Christina/Owen or Erica/Callie? Oh god this is so confusing!


oh oh!!!! i read that the season finale will be based on the first episode of the 5th season(dream a little dream if me 1&2)
so i watched it again... and there was izzie and denny going towards the light! and then there's the part where derek dies, although im sure abc wouldnt get rid of patrick dempsey!!


i read on a couple of spoilers, that shonda said something big will happen on merder's weddding on the 7th of May!!!
which means merder are gonna get married!! yay!!!!!


OMG I think it might be alex and izzie .. if shes planning on staying and they are as serious as they are then omg that would be kind of cool. i still think itll b a while before mer n der get married.


I heard that it's not a merder wedding, which is sad. But, I am crossing my fingers that we may finally see Alex and Izzie together for good (and that Izzie will live long enough for them to do so)!
Please, anyone who knows ANYTHING about who's staying/leaving, and who may be getting married, let us know!!!!


Alex and Izzie? come on!!! isn't that too obvious? does izzie and denny ring any bells? One of them is dieing, the other one proposes........... IT SUCKS! Seen that one already.
Mer/Der would be too predictable, and it would have to take them off the center stage. So I bet it'll be either Mark/Lexie (some sort of grand gesture to prove he has changed or something) or callie/arizona (which would in fact shock a lot of people)......... so let's wait and see


my money is on alex and izzie as she is 'dying' or sloane and little grey as they would be the most suprising couple out of the whole cast and would be so cute if merder were the bridesmaid and best man :)

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
