What happens when you throw in an insecure virgin bride, a reformed playboy groom, two over bearing mothers who can't stand each other, one philandering husband, a high strung wedding planner, the invasion of unruly village gate-rashers, a thief on the loose, a best man with a flash-drive full of secrets, a sexy EX with vengeance on her mind, two loyal bridesmaids ready to go to war, and a brother seeking his father's approval? It is a HILARIOUS melting pot of potential disaster. Will it be all too much to bear? Or will true love stand even the most chaotic of wedding celebrations as offered in The Wedding Party.
