Will guests have to get ready for your wedding 3-4hrs before the event and then sit around in their wedding clothes during the activity? If so I would be kind of annoyed as a guest and would probably feel uncomfortable at your wedding. Also what will the weather be like? If it is a warm venue it will be even worse for your guests.

j_jaye:  I agree. Is it possible for *you* to go somewhere else for a few hours and get ready? That lets everyone else get ready at the house. It’s a bit hard to ask everyone to keep away from the house where they’re staying, unable to go back and get personal items. What happens if someone forgets their phone, needs to change, needs to lie down, etc.

c.gaul20:  I think if it is just an activity to give them somehting to do the morning of then you can definitely offer it but I don’t think you can make people go. So as long as you are prepared that a few might not take you up on the offer then all is good. Just be flexible and non-demanding and I think you will find your guests will respond in the same way.

As for activities- where is your wedding taking place? Is it a tourist destination? Is there a local attraction, a winery, gardens, museum, historic site?
