Purim = Achashuerosh's Banquet = Today's Simchos

Purim is almost upon us. Which reminds me of King Achashuerosh's obscenely lavish banquet lasting 6 months long. Which reminds me of today's equally lavish (if not so long-lasting) Wedding and Bar & Bas Mitzvah simchos.
Can you describe, in 5000 words or less, the most obscenely lavish, expensive, and totally over-the-top affair that you have recently attended. Describe in detail (1) the wecoming smorgasbord, (2) the banquet meal itself including, (a) the number of courses; (b) the accompanying wines, liquors, liqueurs and last but not least, (3) the "Sweet Table".
