We all knew Lorelai and Luke would get married in Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life—but according to series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, the wedding originally looked a lot different.
“The wedding was originally a much bigger deal,” she told TVLine. “The wedding was a whole shebang. And then they took money away from us. Anything that has extras in it and costumes became a production nightmare. So we had to figure out how to make this wedding satisfying without doing ‘The Big Wedding.'”
We think the intimate gathering turned out perfectly. Lorelai, Luke and Rory are the most important characters, so we didn't need much else. Luckily, the wedding was never going to be cut altogether.
“We knew we had to do a wedding,” Sherman-Palladino said. “We knew we had to get them married. There was no way we were getting out of this without getting them married. The fans have waited too long.”
So true! We're so happy Lorelai and Luke finally tied the knot.
