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

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.


Callie: Did anyone ever think you two were a couple?
Meredith: No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila.
Cristina: Then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.
Callie: Huh.
