This iconic soap opera wedding episode had all the bells and whistles of the time.
Hope and Bo Brady’s wedding perfectly demonstrated how the 80s was the decade of excess.
The year 1983 was the first time couples began capturing their weddings on video. When Sony released its camcorder for the mass consumer, wedding photography went sky high.
This, combined with some impressive televised weddings meant one thing. Wedding costs were soaring.
Weddings began seeing more and more lavish decorations and elaborately layered cakes.
An example of an average wedding could actually be seen in an episode of Knight Rider. Check out the cake!
Not quite as buzzed about as Diana's and Charles' special day, but the Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson still had quite a big day.
The wedding that took place on July 23 1986 was still pretty memorable.
The Time of My Life
In 1987 the '80s classic Dirty Dancing hit the theatres and a new wedding hit blasted straight into mixtapes and wedding playlists.
The song "(I've Had) The Time of My Life" became the request for every wedding deejay the moment it entered our ears.
