The closer and closer it gets to Marshall and Lily's wedding ceremony, the less and less it looks like the intimate outdoor wedding with only a small number of family and friends (and an acoustic guitarist) in attendance that they had originally envisioned. In addition, one problem after another seems to be rearing its ugly head, including: Lily's veil being destroyed; their pregnant harp player being overdue; their photographer being injured; the flowers not scheduled to arrive until half way through the ceremony; Lily's high school boyfriend Scooter being there, he who still professes his love for her; and Marshall having an even worse than bad hair day.

Lily and Marshalls Wedding
5 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not as Great as the last episode, but it is funny and enjoyable with some hilarious moments, especially Marshalls melt down.

Plot In A Paragraph:Marshall and Lily's wedding day is looking destined to become a disaster, until fate intervenes and makes everything almost perfect.

Alyson Hannigan and Jason Segel excel here they are both brilliant as Lily and Marshall. Neil Patrick Harris gets to act with his real life partner David Burtka who returns as Lily's ex boyfriend Scooter, who is still in love with Lily and is determined to stop the wedding.

After the 10/10 episode last time it would always be hard to match, this comes quite close
