Which is one of the biggest flaws of the Special. It's not deserving to be a separate one shot issue. It is not a complete story, it's a lead-in to McDuffie's run on the League, the fact that his first issue says "part 2" underscores that. It's about as deserving to be a separate issue as Meltzer's 0 issue when neither were anything special deserving a unique title/number.
'Course the other big flaw was that Green Arrow and Black Canary were hardly in the thing, you know, the bride and groom.
And why was Space Ranger, a hero in the future, there?
Other plot point that had me questioning, are we to assume that the public knows the secret identities of Green Arrow & Black Canary now as well as various other Leaguers? How else to explain that people, press & paparazi figured out where the bachelor party was being held and that they even cared when it was going to be them attending in their civilian identities (which they ultimately didn't do anyway). Just seems there was some funky story logic there. I don't have the issue in front of me, but was Roy doing all the planning as Red Arrow despite the fact the party was to be for everyone in their civilian identities? That makes absolutely no sense, especially by some one that actually worked as an undercover operative.
And why would they as superheroes advertise they were getting married or otherwise involved? It just seems that while that's knowledge that we're privy to as readers, it wouldn't necessarily be public knowledge or that they'd want it to be.
