Here Comes the Bride on 'Y&R,' But Check Out the Minister!

There's a wedding in the works on 'The Young and the Restless,' and it's going to be a really amazing ceremony. Billy (Billy Miller) and Victoria (Amelia Heinle) will be having a 1950s themed wedding -- something very 'Rock Around the Clock' -- and to add to the ambiance, actress Elinor Donahue has been cast as the minister.

That's right, Betty Anderson -- nicknamed Princess -- from 'Father Knows Best,' will be asking Billy and Victoria if they take each other in wedded bliss. The wedding will be Wednesday, Sept. 8, but don't expect Papa Newman to give the bride away. Victor (Eric Braeden) despises Billy.

Scott Hamner, the soap's co-head writer said of Donahue's casting: "Relationship and romance is partly about trying to achieve a retro-fantasy of better, simpler times -- bringing Elinor on amps up that homage to the perfect family. We have great admiration for Elinor. She's an iconic part of our collective psyche and it seemed like we couldn't do it without her. We love her!"
