Sean Parker’s Wedding Will be More Whimsical, Less Medieval [Updated]

Every guest gets his own costume!

Ye Old Timey Shit

After a rather extended engagement, Sean Parker is finally making it official with the mother of his child, Alexandra Lenas. Rather than tying the knot in Zuckerbergian low-key fashion, however, it sounds like the two are planning quite the bash. Page Six says the pair will marry in June–in grand style.

The couple has reportedly settled on a medieval theme, their venue being a “forest setting” in Big Sur. The save-the-dates look like a medieval scroll. And sources tell Page Six each guest will receive his own custom period costume, because apparently the Lenas-Parkers want to humiliate their nearest and dearest.

A source tells Page Six:

“It’s not yet fully decided what the costumes will be like, the theme is supposed to fit in with the environment and the natural beauty of the area. But, yes, there is a chance the wedding could end up looking like an episode of ‘Game of Thrones.’ ”

Well, at least their concept isn’t Peter Pan.

(Updated, 2:35 p.m.) Mr. Parker has responded to the news on Twitter:

Which prompts the question: Why would you bother providing custom-made costumes for your wedding guests that are merely “essentially modern”? Don’t Sean Parker’s friends already own wedding-appropriate attire? That’s because they’re going for something “whimsical”:

In a Facebook update, he added that the outfits will be, “based on modern suits and dresses with some elements of victorian flair and whimsy.”

Pardon our confusion.
