The Wedding is the eleventh episode of Season 5 of I Dream of Jeannie and the 124th overall episode of the series. The episode, which was written by James Henerson and directed by Claudio Guzmán, originally aired on NBC-TV on 3 December 1969.
The big day has finally arrived. Tony and Jeannie look forward to finally getting married and it promises to become a huge media event. However, there is one problem. NASA wants photos of the wedding, but because genies can't be photographed, the couple are afraid that the wedding will get publicity for all the wrong reasons. In fact, Jeannie panics and almost calls off the wedding and considers eloping instead. However, she comes up with an interesting solution when she blinks up a mannequin to pose as her and be photographed until it comes time for the vows. Can the happy couple pull it off or will it be a disaster?

- The original broadcast was interrupted and the wedding show was shown on the following Saturday.
- Jeannie was pictured in the third season's third episode, the fourth season's nineteenth episode, and filmed on Carl Tucker's Automobiles' commercial in the fourth season's fifth episode, but it was revealed in an earlier season and then again in this episode that genies cannot be pictured.
- The premise of the episode is that genies can't be photographed. To solve this, Jeannie blinks up an automaton/robot of herself to walk down the aisle. At the end of the episode when Tony and Jeannie are watching a film of the wedding, Tony is walking with an invisible Jeannie. The robot/automaton should have shown up in the film.
