If you are thinking of having a relatively small wedding and want to have a fun reception where friends and family can celebrate your union in a unique way, consider having a reception at a bowling alley!
Ryan Family Amusements has hosted multiple receptions at their Yarmouth location and one at their Hyannis location (although both the Hyannis and Falmouth locations are smaller than the Yarmouth location and not as conducive to a reception).
The Orleans Bowling Center has held rehearsal dinners and is open to the idea of hosting a reception, although they have not done so yet.
All of the alleys said that the price for renting out the space for a bowling wedding reception would depend on things like number of people, day of the planned event, and how it is being catered.
A reception at a bowling alley is a more casual affair and it can be a great way to unwind after all the stress of wedding planning. Have a few White Russians and knock down some pins for some enjoyable after wedding fun! For favors, consider giving out passes to the bowling alley for a future date.
