Warning: Minor spoilers ahead! Stop reading here if you don't want to know what happens in Selling Sunset season 5.

Selling Sunset season 5 brought *all* the drama—and TBH, viewers were expecting no less. But in between unpleasant surprise gifts and a brand new agent arriving in the Oppenheim office, this season, fans also got a peek at many of the stars' personal lives.

From Chrishell Stause and Jason Oppenheim's whirlwind relationship to Emma Hernan's love life, there was a lot to learn about your faves on the Sunset Strip. And, of course, it wouldn't be a Selling Sunset season without a wedding!

This time around, Heather Rae El Moussa, 34, married HGTV star Tarek El Moussa, 40, in a beautiful ceremony. But some viewers questioned why Heather's bridal shower spanned half of an episode, while her actual wedding was only shown for a few minutes.

So, what gives? Heather sat down with Women's Health to get the full scoop. Here's what you need to know:

Heather and Tarek's full wedding was made into its own special.

Last year, the couple filmed Tarek & Heather: The Big I Do for HGTV and Discovery+. The hour-long special showed the full ceremony, plus their journey to finally walking down the aisle, Heather told Women's Health. "Then I also talked with Netflix about putting a portion of my wedding on the show," she explained.

Netflix used Heather and Tarek's wedding video on Selling Sunset.

"They actually used my personal wedding video," Heather said. "And then they created what they wanted." Translation: Any decisions about how much to show (or what to leave out) came from Netflix. "That's probably why it was a little bit shorter than people would like," she added.

"But they got to see moments that weren't on the wedding special"—like all of the Selling Sunset cast in attendance, which Heather loved. "It was kind of fun to see the cast more on and see moments that people didn't see before," she told WH.

Plus, Heather says she's excited for everyone to see more of her big day, especially for viewers who didn't catch the Discovery+ special the first time around.
