Melissa McCarthy Melissa McCarthy

Always the bridesmaid, never the bride? That can't be said of Melissa McCarthy, who follows up her Oscar-nominated role in Bridesmaids by waking down the aisle in a dress made of satin, tulle, crystals and pearls on Mike & Molly's May 14 season finale.

The ceremony takes place at Grandma's Baptist Church, with Ray Parker Jr. performing and Family Matters' Reginald VelJohnson officiating. "The gown is really purty and elegant," says exec producer Mark Roberts. The same can't be said for the rehearsal dinner, which airs a week earlier and is interrupted by Mike's dad, who ran off 20 years prior.

The evening will also reveal a secret about Molly's mom's boyfriend Vince. Adds Roberts, "There are some unexpected twists and turns before they get to the altar."
