Storyline

Marshall and Lily finally have got the perfect place they always wanted to get married at. The only problematic thing about this is that the place is only available in two months. So, this means a lot of work for everybody. To listen to a band Marshall wants to play at the wedding, Lily,Barney and Robin sneak into a High School prom. While the other three are at the prom, Marshall and Ted, who had actually planned a "men's night", are wrapping up wedding invitations until Lily wants Marshall to come to the prom too. Of course, Ted comes along too. Written by Anonymous

Another So So Episode
19 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Plot In A Paragraph: Marshall and Lily finally have got the perfect place they always wanted to get married at. The only problem is thing is that the place is only available in two months. So, the gang have a lot to do. They need to listen to a band Marshall wants to play at the wedding, Lily,Barney and Robin sneak into a High School prom where they are playing.

I have figured out the best episodes feature Neil Patrick Harris's Barney Stinson heavily. Hopefully the prowlers that be figure it out too. This is another so so episode that ends with Ted and Robin making up. I'm not thrilled with the Lily having doubts story and hope it's dropped after this episode.

Lily's high school boyfriend Scooter is played by David Burtka. In the real world, Burtka is Neil Patrick Harris' husband.
