'Game Of Thrones': Purple Wedding Sure To Be 'Memorable'


If you thought the Red Wedding on "Game Of Thrones" was the wedding of the century, think again.

In Season 4 of the hit HBO series, there's going to be another colorful wedding: the Purple Wedding. The upcoming nuptials will be between King Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson) and Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer).

"It's going to be the wedding of the year, and as memorable in its own way as our wedding last season," author George R.R. Martin told TV Guide. "It's what the fans call the Purple Wedding, based on the color of the wine, which plays a big part."

Look for 77 courses at the feast and "some wonderful halftime entertainment."

Pictures reportedly from the set of "Game of Thrones" leaked on Reddit, leading to wild speculation about the Purple Wedding

Season 4 of "Game Of Thrones" will feature many new faces, including Joel Fry as Hizdahr zo Loraq. Other new additions include Pedro Pascal as the Red Viper, Indira Varma and Mark Gatiss.

No premiere date for "Game of Thrones" Season 4 has been set.
