Billionaire Sean Parker

Dropping $9 MILLION ...

on Wedding Decorations!!!

4/15/2013 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


If you invested in Facebook, here's another reason to unfriend Fbook billionaire Sean Parker -- he's blowing nearly $9 mil to create a temporary backdrop for his wedding.

We've learned Parker -- who made billions with companies like Napster and Facebook -- booked the entire ultra-swank Ventana Inn in Big Sur, CA for the weekend of June 1st to tie the knot with Alexandra Lenas in an over-the-top wedding with a medieval flair.

To realize his vision ... we're told Sean hired a landscaping company to build fake ruins, waterfalls, bridges, ponds and a gated cottage in the resort's surrounding forest -- where he'll say "I do" in a ceremony fit for a king ... or Hobbit.

All the guests will enter through a $600,000 gate, dance on a $350,000 floor, and they better stop and smell the roses ... because Parker's dropping more than $1,000,000 on plants and flowers!

Throw in a bunch more fancy overpriced decorations ... and grand total for the BACKDROP is $8.6 million.

In case you care ... Sean hired the costume designer from "Lord of the Rings" to make threads for his guests ... and like yarmulkes at an Orthodox Jewish temple ... you can't get in without 'em.

Now the kicker ...  the entire backdrop will go in the dumpster immediately following the shindig. 

Kinda like Napster.

$1,000,000 on plants and flowers!? Gosh! I could buy a f**kin house in New York with that cash. What are you gonna do with a gate anyway! Eat it? What a jerk. Instead save that money or be humble and donate it to a trust fund in Africa or somewhere. At least they will use it to educate children and bring them up as tomorrow's responsible people.

Ouh And, Don't worry Sean, In the near future when your wife ask's for a divorce, She will ask 10 times more money then what you are current spending for the wedding.

I'd go to home depot and make something that looks like 9 million dollars for $9 000. Such a waste

well, you can't take it with you.... and despite many negitive comments-he is spending money in the community, hiring people. In the end, it's his money, and he at this point still gets to decide how to spend it.
