First, you are introduced to the "loving couple" as the bride and groom join hands at the alter. The ceremony is full of one liners you'll want to remember to share with your friends! You may hear a "forget about it" or a "youz guys" as Joey and Maria exchange their vows.

Join me ? (hic) Then throughout the reception, Joey and Maria and their families will come to your table to greet and gossip with their new friends! Moma Nona might squeeze your cheek, then talk about everyone in the old neighborhood. Everyone gets wrapped up in the play's plot which involves Joey's jealous exgirlfriend, Viola Vermicelli and seems to eventually dance with Tina Tubbettini, the bridesmaid that's had a few too many!

The audience is encouraged to participate while the cast sits at tables, flirts, discos on the dance floor, truly turning the event into the best wedding you have ever attended!
