Revealing mistake: Near the end when Toula and Ian are in the limo, Toula starts to wipe off her makeup and take off or loosen her wedding dress. She actually pulls off the bow on the right arm of her dress. If you pause the movie right there, you can see by Ian and Toula's reaction the bow was not supposed to be removed. The scene ends immediately after. (01:20:45)
Factual error: In the scene in the church where Ian is being baptized, he is in black shorts. In the Greek Orthodox Church, he would be required to wear white when being baptized.
Toula Portokalos: There are three things that every Greek woman must do in life: marry Greek boys, make Greek babies, and feed everyone.
Trivia: In the Easter scene, Aunt Voula comes over to Ian and Toula and says to Ian, "Let me touch your hair". This was not in the script. Voula forgot her lines and immediately came up with the hair improv.
