Subscribe To Mayim Bialik Explains How The Big Bang Theory Chose That Wedding Dress Updates
Mayim Bialik has opened up a lot about what was going on behind the scenes on the road to Amy and Sheldon's wedding on The Big Bang Theory, and the actress once again fielded questions about the process at San Diego Comic Con. CinemaBlend was on hand during the show's big panel when Bialik explained how they ended up deciding on that particular wedding dress:
Mayim Bialik explained that the goal was to find a dress that her beloved character would "love," which turned out to be quite a process that meant trying on a lot of different dresses, which was an experience Bialik admittedly wasn't big on in her personal life, although she made peace with it for the good of her character. Eventually, the team found a winner in a dress that featured an Amy-approved excessive amount of accessories, and her Big Bang odd wedding dress was officially born.
The dress was perfectly offbeat, but at the same time normal enough that Amy wouldn't look outwardly ridiculous during The Big Bang Theory wedding episode. Showrunner Steve Holland explained the importance of striking that balance, and how the show benefitted from it.
Mayim Bialik said she appreciated the care The Big Bang Theory team took in the wedding dress selection, and added that her sensitivity about Amy's appearance in the dress was something she discussed with fellow co-star Jim Parsons. The duo took extra care in performing when Sheldon likens his soon-to-be-wife to a pack of swans, in an effort to give the line dual meaning for fans. Both wanted to do justice to the writer's lines as they were written, but at the same time they wanted the line to be powerful and believable in the regard that Sheldon is actually giving Amy a compliment. And we're sure there will be many more of Sheldon's quirky niceties to come in the future.
