The Top 26 Things I Want From The Wedding Of Leslie Knope

You all voted, right? Right.

And, for better or for worse, election day is behind us and we can all focus on what TRULY matters to this country. The Wedding of Leslie Knope and Ben Waytt. The creators of "Parks and Recreation" have already shown that they know how to do weddings. I don't expect the typical, sappy sitcom wedding fare. I expect something that is perfectly tailored to the well-written, beautifully fleshed out characters Michael Schur et. al. have given us over the past five seasons.

But because it's fun to think about, and because I was tired of talking about politics, here are 26 things I want to see at the Knope/Wyatt nuptials. Ya heard?

    If only Lil Sebastian were still alive, Leslie could ride down the aisle on him.
    And you know she'll stay up all night making the bridesmaid dresses herself.

    I just got asked to be in an out of state wedding. Let's just say I would much, much rather be in this one.

  • TheMudshark

    P&R fucked me royally with this damn proposal. One second I´m
    watching a fairly enjoyable show with my wife, at peace with the world,
    the next she´s tearing up, babbling incoherently about romance and wanting
    me to buy her a ring and propose AGAIN on our next wedding day. Thanks
    for nothing, dickheads!


  • BendinIntheWind

    Or at least they have to go through her to get the marriage license.

  • OMG that gif of Ann with the straw is one of my favorite moments of the show, ever. It's so perfect. And her drunk talking and just....hee!

    The list is perfect. I'd just add a little bit of Champion, the World's Dog Champion.

    Let's face it, all we need is lots of booze. Because NOTHING is better than when these people get drunk. It's the greatest thing in the world.

  • BendinIntheWind

    I could not be more psyched for this, partially because I'm currently knee-deep in my own wedding planning. I texted my fiancé last week asking if our cake could be shaped like a waffle. Got a solid "maybe".

  • I just want Jean-Ralphio dancing ALL UP on my screen.

  • Leelee

    I met my best friend's new girlfriend for the first time a few days ago. My BF doesn't watch any TV and so has never seen P&R. Her girlfriend and I were having a conversation about nothing in particular, and somehow it led to me mumbling "I just think Comic Sans always screams fun!" to myself. This girl looked at me, and shouted "oh my god, did you SEE the proposal?!"
    Turns out she had been dying to talk to someone about the epic adorableness that is Ben and Leslie, but no-one she knew had watched it.
    I decided there and then that she had my wholehearted seal of approval.

  • pumpkin

    Two words...Party Down

  • JoannaRobinson

    YES. If Ken Marino, Lizzy Caplan, Martin Starr and Dick Casablancas showed up in pink bow ties to cater? With a few funny looks from Ben Wyatt and Tammy?

  • crindybluth

    I love you for calling him Dick Casablancas, because that's who he is obvs.

  • John G.

    quit Pajiba right now, Joanna, and go work for NBC. That is fucking brilliant!!!

  • BendinIntheWind

    I wholeheartedly endorse this idea, but I don't know if anyone could top Childrens Hospital:

  • pumpkin

    I haven't seen that!

  • JoannaRobinson

    BLUE bow ties. Up is down.

  • Arran

    I dunno, Valhalla seems more efficient.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Jerry dies from the glue on the invitations...

    but then it's just a coma.

  • dizzylucy

    Aw, come on, the dude's just getting over a fart attack, don't put him in a coma.

  • lowercase_ryan

    I felt bad for how much I laughed during that.

  • JuB

    Tom always has the best lines.
    I just wanna snuggle up to Ron and pinch his cheeks. He's ridiculously cute.

  • Alyssa

    This is a beautiful, true list.

  • e-money

    All the feel!

  • Ted Zancha

    I was going to be quite upset if you did not include the Dancing Swanson GIF.
