Despite the protests of his dad, Fred Sanford (Redd Foxx), Lamont (Demond Wilson) is determined to go through with his upcoming marriage. Alas, the bride gets cold feet at the last minute, leaving Lamont stranded at the altar. The bride's family later shows up at what was supposed to have been the wedding reception -- not to offer comfort and sympathy, but to reclaim their wedding presents. Believe it or not, Lamont does get to go on his honeymoon, but not with the "partner" he expected. Two former regulars on the classic TV series Amos 'N' Andy -- Alvin Childress and Lillian Randolph -- appear in supporting roles. Based on "And Afterwards At...," a 1965 episode of the British sitcom Steptoe and Son, "Here Comes the Bride, There Goes the Bride" originally aired on January 28, 1972.
