Murder Mystery Wedding: What’s Not Supposed to Happen

A murder mystery wedding is an extremely popular plot and makes an ideal show; we have performed countless wedding scenarios across the years. Indeed, on one occasion, we had a double wedding, where we performed one of our wedding plots alongside a real wedding! It was a superb day – if a little unusual.

But in one particular murder mystery wedding plot we frequently performed, there was a bride character who was, shall we say, not the sharpest knife in the draw. This gave rise to a comedy moment that I shall enjoy re-telling. In the plot for this particular murder mystery show, the groom is rich, aristocratic and worldly. His bride asked him where they were going on honeymoon. “Oh, ” said the groom, “We shall visit my villa in Tuscany.”

“Oh, that’s wonderful,” replied the not-so-bright bride. “I just love Wales!”

The Murder Mystery Wedding: Quite the Plot

Another murder mystery wedding scenario was for a couple who are not so rich, and the wedding is on a serious budget. Midway through the story, it is revealed that the bride is pregnant. A guest asks the bride if she has thought of any names yet. The Bride replies, “Yes. If it’s a girl, I’ll name her Paris, and if it’s a boy, I think I’ll name him Kentucky.” “Oh, ” says the guest, “Have you been to Kentucky?”

The bride replied, “Yeah. – I get all my chicken from there.”

This demonstrates some wonderful quick thinking and wit from the actresses in an improv role and shows how murder mysteries can be such fun for guests and performers alike. I’ll have more of these gems later, and I also want to talk about the different styles of events, not just a murder mystery wedding. But more of that later.
