Sean Parker, the co-founder of Napster and early Facebook advisor, will tie the knot this weekend in California. He is marrying singer Alexandra Lenas in the Big Sur region.

Multiple media outlets have reported on Parker's ostentatious demands, making him out to be somewhat of a groomzilla. According to the Associated Press, a Big Sur Chamber of Commerce rep says the tech genius is "building the equivalent of a movie set for the wedding."

The Mercury News reports Parker is believed to be spending more than $10 million into the nuptials, which includes outfits created by Ngila Dickson, the costume designer of "Lord of the Rings." Page Six actually obtained a sketch of Parker's suit, which they described as "equal parts romantic 'Wind in the Willows' and Dr. Watson with a twist of 'Hobbit' character Bilbo Baggins." We couldn't say we agree more, though Parker tweeted to the world that his big day was "NOT a theme wedding and there will be nothing 'medieval' about it."

"Just because we don't trust our guests to dress themselves properly doesn't mean we want them to look like #GoT [Game of Throne] characters," he added, much to our disappointment.
