The Royal Wedding is not the only ceremony we are anxiously waiting for this May.
After years of cute, nerdy love, The Big Bang Theory's Sheldon Cooper and Amy Fowler will tie the knot during the season 11 finale of the ABC hit comedy series, proving that even the unlikeliest of characters can find love.
The episode, which airs May 10 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS, will see Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Amy (Mayim Bialik) tie knot amongst friends, family and for some reason Mark Hamill, and will signify a happy ending to a love story eight years in the making for the show.
The road to Shamy's wedding day has been a tumultuous one, with meet-cutes, breakups and adorable-yet-weird first times. Take a look at some of Sheldon and Amy's biggest relationship moments.
