    You know in the Godfather they killed many many people at the end. People kill their own family members, do drugs, and at Connie's wedding Sonnie bangs the bridesmaid.


    Hey, hope it works out super romantic for you!

    One time in college, my sorority had a Mobster themed party. We all dressed like whores.

    That's all I got. GL!

    Personally I prefer the brooding forgotten wife theme, but I digress.

    Oooo I like the brooding forgotten wife theme.

    Instead of a sparklers you could have a semi-automatic send off. Or maybe ride off on a tiger.

    So nice of you to offer some serious advice...It's my FI favorite movie and I truly believe it could be done without being tacky.  But now I guess I know where NOT to ask for advice...Thanks again ladies!
  • Options
    You can use wine bottles with candles for the centerpieces, with red and white striped tables clothes. The male guest could wear hat and pass out cigars. Have fun with it. Or through a 1920s flapper party. You can do alot with alittle.

    But remember with a theme you might need to change you colors. 
  • Options
    lol at this post.

    OP - seriously, though.. The Godfather and Goodfellas are my DH's favorite movies, yet I'm not sure it's really an appropriate theme for a wedding.

    Why not change it to the 1920's, 1930's or 40's era theme?






    What differentiates an average host and a great host is anticipating unexpressed needs and wants of their guests.  Just because the want/need is not expressed, doesn't mean it wouldn't be appreciated.

    I agree with taking it to more of a 1930's theme and having the guys dress in slight pinstripe suits and fedora's.  I appreciate the serious advice and some people not turning my wedding into a joke.
