As gleeks old and new pitch in to help get ready for Brittany and Santana’s wedding, the happy, albeit nervous couple settles on a few final details for their upcoming nuptials. The planning stage hits an impasse, however, when the two brides have a strong difference of opinion over whether or not to invite Sue. While Brittany, who credits Sue with bringing them together in the first place, is in favor of extending an invite, Santana is vehement about refusing to allow Sue’s attendance. But the former Cheerios! Coach is not so easily dissuaded and still has a few characteristic tricks up her sleeve. And the supremely superstitious Brittany is thrown for a loop when Santana sees her in her wedding dress before the big day. Meanwhile, when Kurt and Blaine finally reunite as a couple they are all too aware of the mistakes and regrets of their past, but supportive words from family and friends inspire them to take a sudden and daring leap, and Tina announces her unorthodox decision to ask former boyfriend Mike to marry her, but while most of her guy friends are supportive, fellow former flame Artie remains dubious about the plan.
Brittany’s mother (Whitney) opens up a door of a barn, in Indiana. Artie, Santana, Brittany and Maribel (Santana’s mother) walk in, where Artie questions why they are there. Santana replies that since gay marriage is not fully legalised in Ohio, to which Artie states that he meant why they’re in a barn, Maribel nodding. Whitney declares that she wants Brittany and Santana to get married in the barn that Brittany was born in, where everyone looks surprised. Whitney retells how they were shopping for electric fires, before she had a horrible ingestion from having apple butter, telling Pierce (Brittany’s father) to pull the car over, and ran into the barn. She continues, demonstrating how Brittany was born, by squatting down. She states how lucky there was a cow at the time, to lick her clean, and took her back to the car, to which her father was surprised. Maribel comments on how insane that story was. Santana interrupts, saying that she’s happy that their moms and friends, holding Brittany’s hands, stating its the perfect place for them to get married, where Whitney smiles, pleased. Mariel tells them that she can work with it. Whitney replies that she must, to which Maribel looks annoyed by the response. Artie states, that as their wedding planner, he’ll make the wedding work, saying the barn has potential.
It skips over a period of days, where everyone helps to prepare for the wedding. At night, Tina is seen dragging a tree, as Kurt asks people to help her. Tina complains about how she ended up doing this. Kurt replies that she volunteered to help. Tina retorts that she didn’t think she was going to do all that labour, stating how she feels creeped out by the kids, believing that not re-introducing herself was the cause, and that no-ones talking to her. Kurt, oblivious to her, see’s Brittany panicking, where she states that she see’s the barn collapsing. Kurt tries to reassures her, but she continues, saying that the final fittings haven’t been done, and that there’s no officiate anymore. She frantically moves around, trying to rearrange the setting. Kurt steps in, saying he’s there to help, and tells her to trust him. Brittany, ignoring what he said, asks how he coped with the wedding planning. Kurt awkwardly tries to make her remember of his and Blaine’s break up. Brittany states she finds it hard to track their relationship, Kurt saying the weddings not for him. He gets an idea, when Brittany says the Blaine is all over his dad, teling her that Burt (Kurt’s dad) can officiate the wedding. Brittany, not remembering Burt, tries to guess who he is. When Kurt tells her its his dad, she uncomfortably agrees.
In a wedding shop, Santana talks to Rachel, Tina and Mercedes about how she and Brittany will try out wedding dresses, for the wedding, Brittany stating that there should be no peaking at each other’s dresses. They walk out in different dresses, to which the 3 girls judge their dresses. Brittany walks out, where all of them agree that the dress she is wearing, is the right one. Santana walks from behind, talking to Brittany about how beautiful she looks, to which Brittany and the others react superstitiously about how she’s seeing her in her, dress, all of them ushering Santana to go back in change.
The following day, in the choir room, Brittany walks in holding a chicken, to make the bad luck go away. Rachel exclaims that she won’t sacrifice it, Santana making Brittany take the chicken outside. Santana then tells her, that if she wants her to distract her minds, she should help with the seating plan. Brittany states they dewey decimal system, moving Kurt’s chair next to Rachel, because they’re both annoying. Mercedes comments on why Rachel is not next to Sam. Rachel states that Burt and Carole will be there, and that she hasn’t been talking with them recently, and doesn’t want to hurt them.. Mercedes reassure her that they’ll want her to move on, just like they did with their first spouses’ death. Rachel moves Sam’s chair next to hers. Santana see’s that Sue’s on the list, asking why she’s on the list. Brittany states how that she’s been a big part of their lives, putting them on the cheerios. Mercedes states that there’s an 80% chance that she will ruin it. Rachel then follows on, saying that if she’s not invited, there will be a 99% chance that she will ruin it. Santana storms out, saying that if she’s there, than she’ll not be.
In the Lima Bean, Walter talks to Kurt about getting suits for the wedding. Kurt then tells him that he’s going to the wedding with Blaine, where Walter looks sad. Kurt apologizes to him, but Walter says it's “young love.” Kurt, surprised by the reaction, asks him if he’s not mad. Walter reassures him that he’s not, but is jealous. He states how he’s at the start of his life, seeing how he should have not have been someone he’s not, at Kurt’s age. He continues, saying that he’s lucky, and that even if he gets hurt again, its love. He tells him he shouldn’t waste time guessing, or behaving himself, but should get grab the opportunity, and not let go. It cuts to Kurt running to Blaine’s apartment, where he tells Blaine that he still loves him and asks him to go the wedding with him, unless there’s someone else. Blaine tells him there’s no one else, and they both kiss.
In the auditorium, Tina talks to Blaine, Puck and Artie about hows she’s going to ask Mike to marry her. They all are surprised. Artie tells her its crazy. She tells him that she’s already got a ring, and that its not crazy for a girl to ask a guy for marriage. Artie says that it is, when they’re not even dating, to which Puck agrees. Blaine states how its romantic, to which Tina thanks him. Tina tells them that she’s happy with him, and has missed the opportunity to marry Mike before, not wanting him to let go again. Blaine tells her to do it. Artie asks how long its been since they’ve talked, after their break-up. Tina tells them that it there wasn’t a lot, while she was still in high school, but now in college, she talks to him a lot. She tells them that he’s her best friend again. Puck then agrees, saying he’d be happy to see them back together, and Blaine agrees too. Tina asks Artie if he also wants them together, wanting them all to agree, or else she won’t propose. Artie tells her that he may not like it, but if she wants that, then he’ll support that. They all hug, Artie looking glum.
In Sue’s office, Sue polishes her trophies as Santana walks in, asking why she was called. Sue states that she’s hurt by not being invited to the wedding. Continuing, she says that they should put their differences aside for that day. Santana bluntly says she wants to be surrounded by people she loves, and who love her, stating that Sue can only love herself. Sue says that she knows nothing about her. Santana walks up to her, telling her how selfish and self-centered she is, restating the event when Sue dressed up in a wedding gown for Will and Emma’s wedding, and also married herself. She continues, saying that she is incapable of a selfless act, and if she shows up, she’ll be dragged out by the security guards. Santana walks out, as Sue looks disappointed.
The next day, at the barn, people are gathered outside, walking around, in and out the barn, for the day of the wedding. Artie is being carried by Roderick, Mason, Madison, Spencer and Jane inside the barn, Mike leading the way. Pam (Blaine’s mother) introduces herself to Carole (Kurt’s stepmother) and Maribel (Santana's mother), as Sheldon escorts Whitney (Brittany's mother) towards them. In the distance, Sam, Kitty, Sam and Tina are taking pictures, where Sugar takes a photo of Blaine and Kurt, holding a pitchfork. Inside the barn, Puck is talking to Mike about the airforce. Tina walks up to them, Puck commenting on how hot Tina looks, to which Mike agrees. He leaves them, Tina fixing Mike’s tie. Kurt and Blaine walk up to Burt and Carole, where Burt states how he’s just going over the officiation, and Carole comments on how handsome they look. Kurt states how it seems like yesterday, when only they were getting married, where Burt and Carole kiss. Blaine states how they almost followed in their footsteps. Burt explains that even though they may have not meant to be, everyone isn't ready for anything to happen. Carole states how they’ve taken advantage over their days, stating that everyone makes mistakes. She continues, saying they have make the most of everything, saying Finn taught them that. Burt states how officiating is now making him think, to which Carole and he leave, so he can drink.
In another part of the barn, Mercedes, Tina and Rachel are gathered with Brittany (Brittany in her dress, while the other three, in bridesmaids dresses. Brittany paces, telling the others to find things (lizards and spiders) for her good luck. They walk out. Santana comes from behind, saying that when she pictured her wedding, she taught she’d be the most beautiful bride, but states that Brittany is. Brittany tries to cover her dress, trying to push Santana away, complaining about how she’s trying to sabotage the wedding. Santana comes back in, saying that at first, it was adorable, but now it isn’t. She explains about how the superstition of not seeing the bride before the wedding came to light, stating that it had to do with arranged marriages, where they believed they would bail out, if they saw their faces. She continues that its not them, and tells her she’s sorry that she can’t spend an hour without her, because she would then miss her, to which Brittany smiles. Santana states that rules don’t apply to them, and tells her that its good luck to kiss, before the wedding. They kiss passionately. Brittany then tells her if that means she can take off the blue underwear that she got from Tina, to which they both look disgusted. As they talk, Sue walks in, to which Santana asks why she’s there. Santana then says that Brittany might be right about them having bad luck. Sue tells her that she has a gift, Santana saying that she can’t give a gift that she wants. Sue, unfazed, tells her that she’ll change her tune, and brings out Santana’s abuela, Alma. Sue explains how she stopped by her house the night before, as they both were not attending the wedding, intending for reverse phycology It cuts to a flashback of Sue knocking on Alma’s door, asking her if she wants to help her ruin the day, referring to things that people do to homosexuals. Back in the barn, Alma states that she may not agree with what Santana’s doing, but she was wrong, that family is the most important thing in the world. She states that she doesn’t want to be the person that causes her pain, and doesn’t want to miss the important days. Santana says that she doesn’t believe in things that abuela says either, but has missed her. Alma says she’s missed her too. They hug, Brittany joining in as Santana says thank you to Sue. Sue walks out.
In the main part of the barn, Kurt and Blaine comment about how nice it looks, as Sue walks up to them, calling them by their ship name, Klaine, stating that there is an emergency. They both don’t believe her, but Sue states that its a real one, involving Brittany and Santana, using their ship name, Brittana. They follow her to the room where Brittany and Santana were. Blaine opens the door, and they walk in, seeing wedding suits, with their faces stuck to it. Kurt asks what’s going on. Brittany states that when she was planning for the wedding, she couldn’t stop thinking of them, saying she looked up to them in high school, saying that when they broke up, it broke her heart, and know wants her dream back. Kurt realises that she wants them to get married with her. Sue tells Blaine that she wants them to get married. Brittany asks what they think. Kurt tells her that they think she’s crazy, as they just got back together, and that Santana would never let them crash the wedding. Santana comes out, saying that she’s already agreed with them. Blaine tells them that they don’t have rings. Sue states that she already has rings, referring to the ones that she wore, when she married herself. Kurt tells them that its romantic, but they can’t, to which he tries to get Blaine agree with him. Blaine says that he doesn’t know what to make of it. He continues, saying what Burt and Carole were saying earlier, and loves him, saying its crazy, and he doesn’t know, saying “but”. Kurt surprised, asks “but what?”
At the wedding, Artie and Mercedes sing At Last, everyone looking happy, as Sue comes to sit with them. Tina and Mike share glances with each other. Kurt and Brittany come out first, going through the aisle to the stage. Blaine and Santana come next, to which everyone then realises happily, that there is going to be a double wedding. Artie and Mercedes finish the song, to which everyone applauds, as Whitney states that Pierce is in the bathroom, missing the aisle walk. Burt walks up, whispering to Kurt that he’s barely together. Burt then addresses the audience, saying that he’s been lucky enough to marry the loves of his life, and now is even luckier to officiate the wedding for the both of them. Burt thanks the four of them, saying that they’re brave to stand up and get married, as Maribel and Alma glance at each other, looking happy. He continues, saying that love and marriage is a ride, wanting to do it together. Burt then asks for the vows, Whitney once again commenting on how Pierce is still not back. Kurt, Brittany, Santana and Blaine then do the vows with each other, saying how it seemed they wouldn’t be themselves, but since they met each other, they’ve become better. They all say that they’re a work in progress, and say I Do to each other, putting the rings on each other’s fingers. Pam and Sugar look happy. Burt then says that they are now married, and that God supports them, as everyone claps when they kiss, doves flying out behind them.
Still in the barn, at the reception, Pierce tries to get everyone’s attention by clicking his spoon, against the glass. After getting everyone’s attention, he introduces himself, and tells them that he was expected to give a toaster, calling Target, but as they’re closed, has decided to give a toast. He tells them that he’s so happy that they’ve found one another, saying she’s the most beautiful one there, commenting on the other girls appearances. Whitney walks up to him, whispering that he’s ruining it, and no one’s uglier than him, without his clothes on. Pierce then tells that no one’s ugly, and tells them that everyone needs to be careful with the candles, as everyone looks awkwardly at him. Santana stands up, saying they have a gift for them. She tells them that “OTP” stands for “One True Pairing", stating that she was lucky to find her’s, along with Kurt and Blaine, wanting them to join them on the dance floor, to get the party started. Artie then goes on the dance floor, singing Hey Ya!, with Madison and Jane as back-up, where everyone is dancing.
That night, in the room where Santana, Brittany and Sue confronted Blaine and Kurt, Tina combs her hair, as Mike walks in. Mike tells her that they promised that they won’t leave, without one dance. He goes to walk out, but Tina asks him to stay for a moment. She gets the ring, and starts to propose to him, about wanting to spend her life with him. She gets on her knees, asking him if he wants to marry her. Tina, seeing Mike’s expression, rapidly says that she knows it’s a lot to take in, and that they don’t have to get married yet. They say “I Love You” to each other, but Mike says they can’t get married yet. Tina gets up, saying what she did was stupid. Mike gets up, saying that when he thinks of her, he smiles, and that he’s happy they reconnected, calling her sexy, to which Tina walks to look at herself in the mirror, starting to cry. He tells her, that since they worked together in Asian Camp, he’s always thought she’s sexy. He then tells her that its only natural for her to say this, because their friends are getting married. He tells her that they have their lives ahead of them, and that there is a million guys out there, but Tina cuts him short, and they both kiss. Mike then proposes that they should have their dance, to which Tina accepts. They walk out, as the mothers of the 4 newly weds says they have something special for them, introducing the reunion of The Troubletones, to which they all sing I’m So Excited. They all have solo dances in the song, to which the crowd cheers for them. At the end of the song, everyone applauds, Pierce jumping onto Whitney.
Later on, Blaine, Brittany, Kurt and Santana talk to the audience, thanking them about how real love is waiting for them. The couples, as well as Mike and Tina go on the dance floor, as Brittany and Santana lead Our Day Will Come. Sugar dances with herself, as Puck dances with Pam, to which Kurt and Blaine sing with Santana and Brittany. Sam and Rachel dance, after Carole and Burt say silently that they’re happy with her moving on. Sheldon and Sue dance in a corner. The four singers end the song, to which everyone once again claps for them.
The following day, in the choir room, Tina walks in to Artie setting up lunch, feeling nostalgic, wanting to relive their Tuesday lunches. Artie asks her how she’s doing. Tina says that she knows he thinks she’s crazy for proposing to Mike, but she states that she felt a bit jealous that everyone else was having exciting moments happening, wanting one to happen to her. Artie states that no one loves being alone, but you can’t force yourself to be in a relationship, to avoid it, because you miss out on the person for you. He goes on, saying that if she hadn’t dumped him, Mike and her would never gone out. Tina retorts, saying he dumped her first, for her fake stutter, to which Artie says he doesn’t recall that. Tina states that she’ll be fine with being alone, but Artie interrupts, saying she worries too much, and that she won’t be alone. She stops him, saying how can he be so sure. Artie then proposes an offer, that when they’re thirty, and if they’re not married, they’ll marry each other, to which Tina agrees. Artie starts to lists the benefits, and pops a bottle, to which they drink, referring to "Tartie" and “Artina” as their ship name. They say cheers and drink.
In the auditorium, Blaine, Kurt, Brittany and Santana are gathered, knowing that Sue brought them there. Sue walks out, on stage, combining their last names together. Blaine states they appreciate what she did for them. Santana asks what they’re doing there. Sue states that she wanted to give them one more gift. Sue states that she realises that they see her as a driven, bi-polar role model, but states they can’t help, but sees them as her kids. She tells them that she’s cancelled their honeymoons, and arranged one for them. Blaine reads out that they have a weekend trip to Provincestown. Santana and Brittany open theirs, reading out that they’re going on a expense paid, month long trip to Paradise Island in the Bahamas. They exclaim and hug Sue, as Blaine and Kurt look hurt. Sue states she needs to come up with more ship names, giving examples of Puckcedes, and Faberry. She walks out as Brittany and Santana say she’s the best. The two couples walk together, saying how they can’t believe that what they did. Brittany states how they now have the same anniversary date.
