I LOVE! this idea!! My only concern is whenever I go bowling I break a nail. And I wouldn’t want a broken nail for the wedding.

That sounds like a ton of fun!

We had our rehearsel dinner at our house, and we ended up doing a horse-shoe competition. It was really fun and gave everyone a way to really relax the night before. Bowling sounds awesome.

Sounds like fun! I agree with yellowshoe though, everytime I go bowling I break a nail.

I do like bowling but it just seems a bit casual, and like pp have said if others have gotten their nails done they might prefer doing something a little less energetic.

We are doing our rehearsal dinner at the bowling alley.  It is actually where we met so that works it in.  Also, we wanted to include all of the wedding party’s children since we are doing an adult only reception the next night.

I’m still debating on if I should set up a whole buffet for the dinner or just get pizza, wings and finger good apps that everyone can just pick up and eat instead of trying to get everyone sitting down all together.

We did this, and it was a BLAST! I even ‘risked it’ and bowled 2 games, no broken nails (a wedding miracle!) Lol. We did our rehearsal at the church, the dinner at a friend’s home next door (but you could easily host it in the fellowship hall) and then whoever wanted to come out for bowling/drinks/apps met out at the lanes for 2 hours of cosmic bowling. Just notify everyone a few days ahead so they can bring jeans and socks if they prefer not to bowl in dresses (if the rehearsal is dressy). We had an hour and a half gap time so folks could check into their hotels, change, and then meet up at 10.

I highly recommend it, it was a great way to just relax and not think about the wedding/planning/last minute things. Have a great time!

I am thinking that I want to do some large group event too. I  really want lasertag but there is none  in our area. But I didn’t think of bowling. That would be superfun too!

My friend did this for hers back in October and it was a HUGE hit.  I think it’s such a fun and unique idea.  We looked into the venue below, but it was out of the price range that FI’s parents were able to pay for, so we settled for our favorite craft beer locale that has a kick-ass restuarant. My friend who had her Rehearsal Dinner at the place below said it was SO much fun and everyone loved it!
