Parks and Recreation is easily one of our favorite shows. In my opinion, it may just be the funniest comedy in the Thursday night line-up (yes, this includes our beloved 30 Rock). Last Thursday was the "Galentine's Day" episode and between laughing profusely at everything this guy, this guy and this guy says, I was inspired. Inspired by the Pawnee Senior V-Day Dance, yeah, I typed it.

There is something so great about the over-the-top reds, pinks and hearts that I could not get enough of, even the balloon arch was not too much, it was just right. And I couldn't help but think how G-R-E-A-T a wedding would be in this exact theme. And yeah, you could chic it up a bit, but please please please don't lose that tacky LOVE theme. Because yes, on the one hand it's gaudy but on the other hand it is everything love should be, or we wish it would always be: child-like, naive, colorful and most of all fun. What better way to start your life together than a nostalgic high school-like reception where everyone can let loose, enjoy celebrating and remember what it's like to be a kid.

And maybe one day people will say, "It's the most romantic story ever. It makes The Notebook look like Saw V".
