It’s time for a full-on wedding, and it’s going to be a long one. Dave Coulier, who played uncle Joey Gladstone on the 1980s hit sitcom “Full House,” is getting married, and the festivities will last an entire week. On Tuesday June 10, Us Weekly reported that the 54-year-old actor is engaged to his longtime love, photographer/producer Melissa Bring.
"Melissa has been my best friend since I met her nine years ago," Coulier said. "I feel like the luckiest man on the planet. I get to marry my best friend, and she doesn't mind that I have a really bad gas problem."
The comedian will marry Bring next month in Montana, and the duo even confirmed in an “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” appearance that fellow “Full House” alums John Stamos and Bob Saget have already officially RSVP’d.
E! News reported on Coulier and Bring’s wedding details, which is actually a week-long event that will include a pig roast, golfing, a river day, a rodeo night, fishing and hiking in Yellowstone and a barbeque at Coulier's home.
As for the couple’s first dance as man and wife, it’s safe to rule out one particular song as the newlyweds’ wedding song. That’d be “You Oughta Know,” the scathing 1995 hit single by Alanis Morissette that is rumored to be about Coulier. The comedian told Oprah that he has no idea how that urban legend about him and ex-girlfriend Morissette came about, but he confirmed they dated in the early ‘90s, shortly before the Grammy-winning breakup anthem came out.
In a recent interview with BuzzFeed, the comic addressed the incessant rumors about the song’s subject, revealing that he dated Morissette in 1992 and adding that when he started getting media calls about the song, the press wore him down so he joked that he could be the guy.
And in an interview with HuffPost Live, Coulier admitted the song (or parts of it) could be about him: "There was a lot of familiar stuff because she was writing a lot of material when we were dating, so there were some familiarities all throughout Jagged Little Pill," he said. "The one that got me was, 'I hate to bug you in the middle of dinner.' That was because we had already broken up and she had called—she was living in Canada at the time—she called, and I said, 'Hey, I'm right in the middle of dinner, can I just call you right back?' I remember that line when I heard 'You Oughta Know,' and I just went...it was like, 'Uh-oh.'"
So while Morissette probably won’t be singing at Coulier’s wedding, we can always hope that maybe Jesse and the Rippers will.
