AceShowbiz - One week away from the long-awaited Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Amy's (Mayim Bialik) wedding on "The Big Bang Theory" and fans are more excited than ever to see the couple's courtship finally making it to the altar. To hype up the anticipation, CBS has released the first look at the couple's big day.
Making its way out via Entertainment Weekly, the photo shows Sheldon and Amy being sandwiched between Amy's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Fowler, played by magician Teller and Kathy Bates. Amy looks beautiful in a white wedding gown with a tiered tulle skirt and a pink band on the waist. Sheldon, meanwhile, dons a tuxedo.
Sheldon and Amy are heading to the altar in #BigBangTheory’s season finale—and we have an exclusive first look! 💕After the slowest courtship in TV history, Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Amy (Mayim Bialik) will finally get married in the season 11 finale, but not without a few twists. “There are still some roadblocks in the way,” executive producer Steve Holland tells us. “Hopefully fun ones in ways that you’re not going to expect.” And yes, that's Kathy Bates and magician Teller, who play Amy’s parents in the finale.

The wedding will be featured in the season finale, but not everything will go on smoothly. "There are still some roadblocks in the way," executive producer Steve Holland teases. "Hopefully fun ones in ways that you're not going to expect."
Of course, Sheldon's mom won't miss her son's important event. Laurie Metcalf will reprise the role as Mary Cooper, while Mark Hamill will guest star as a top-secret character. Jerry O'Connell is tapped to portray Sheldon's brother Georgie and he made his debut in the latest episode which aired on May 3.
O'Connell recently tweeted a picture of his character on the show and gushingly wrote in the caption, "Amy and Sheldon's wedding IS MY ROYAL WEDDING #BigBangTheory."
Sheldon often painted his brother Georgie as a bully who sat on his head while he tried to watch "Star Trek", and did cruel things like stealing his Halloween costume. They have grown apart and haven't talked to each other in a decade. As Mrs. Cooper threatens not to come to Sheldon's wedding if he didn't invite Georgie, Sheldon reluctantly called his brother.
As Georgie didn't return his call, Sheldon had no other choice but to fly to Texas and visit his brother, taking Leonard with him. Sheldon often described his brother as a loser who sells tire, but upon arriving at his store, they found out that Georgie does more than that for a living. Georgie is the owner of the Dr. Tire chain of stores, and he sells more than anyone in Texas.
But most important of all, Sheldon learned of the sacrifices his family, particularly Georgie, made so that he's able to study in Germany after his father George Sr. died. The brothers eventually patched things up, with Sheldon even saying "I'm sorry" and "thank you" to George.
"The Big Bang Theory" season finale airs Thursday, May 10 at 8 P.M. ET on CBS.
