    I think in the right context and the right group of people the murder mystery dinner could be really fun! If you go that route hopefully people will participate.

    @smetivier26:  I love both ideas!!!! I think the bowling is more practical as the wedding is the next day and there is lots of stuff to do before the date and you’ll need rest. Plus I know myself, Id be too distracted to really enjoy something like that. I would suggest it for a later date and have a blast with your friends and family.

    BTW i think i may steal the bowling idea for our rehersal dinner

    I like the murder mystery idea, but don’t waste $500 on actors!  I think that defeats the point. Just have everyone participate instead.

    I think I murder mystery would be fun! When else would I get to do that? I think a bowling party would be fun too. Our wedding is the day after 4th of July, so our rehearsal is on the 4th (which is a friday luckily) so we are going to be having it out at the lake, and basically have a BBQ and fireworks and just a grand old time! I also hate the idea of a formal sit down dinner ๐Ÿ˜›

    Oh fun! If your guests are into that sort of thing, the murder mystery night could be a blast ๐Ÿ˜€ Bowling sounds like a great idea too! I also wasn’t too keen on a regular sit-down event for the rehearsal dinner. I figured we’re already doing that the next day. Our venue has a small stable and we’re riding out on horseback to a BBQ cookout in the hills surrounding the lodge ๐Ÿ™‚

    My friend writes his own murder mysteries.  Once a year around Christmas he throws a party and we all get roles ahead of time, but those roles are often not what they seem.

    Everyone gets really into it, it’s relatively cheap, and it’s always so much fun!

    It’s also great for getting people that may not know each other wel to interact and participate.  Seriously, I love them!  Don’t hire actors, just buy a kit and do it yourself.  And have fun!

    I think for most people – bowling would be best. However, I personally have been dying to do a murder mystery night. FI, not so much. It would depend on how much you think your guests would get into the murder mystery. It could be a great way to make people intereact.

    OMG I would LOVE a murder mystery! But I also think you have to consider your audience… would they go for this non-traditional wedding activity?
