Memorable Weddings in Novels

Another in my series of "memorables" lists: Memorable weddings in novels.

Some of these weddings are elaborate, some are simple; some are fated to end well, some are interrupted, botched, or doomed to go bad. But all are vivid and memorable.

-Meg and John in “Little Women” (Alcott)
-Anne and Gilbert in “Anne’s House of Dreams” (Montgomery)
-Jane Eyre and Rochester in “Jane Eyre” (Bronte) – the famous interrupted wedding
-Charles and Emma in “Madame Bovary” (Flaubert)
-Newland and May in “The Age of Innocence” (Wharton) – while he thinks only of Ellen
-Adam and Dinah in “Adam Bede” (Eliot)
-Sergeant Troy and Fanny Robin in “Far From the Madding Crowd” – a comedy of errors that turns to tragedy
