Introduction:Planning a family reunion is not an easy task. However, the occasion will be really awesome, and hopefully remembered for years. It will also be greatly appreciated by your relatives. Here are some tips to help you get started planning your family reunion.

  • 01

    Get All Your Relatives Names and Addresses Who Will Be Invited

    Get the names and addresses of all those relatives who will be invited to your family reunion. You can easily do this by calling or speaking with your closest relatives first.

    After you have gotten the easiest names and addresses from your closest relatives, ask them for other people that they know who they think should also be invited. They will surely be happy to help you out.

    It is very important not to forget any of your relatives. You wouldn't want to hurt any feelings. That is not why you are planning this family reunion. Hopefully, you will not find out afterwords that someone is upset that they found out about this reunion that they were not invited to.

  • 02

    Ask Your Relatives When Would Be Best to Have a Family Reunion

    Although you cannot please everyone, ask your relatives when would be a good time to have this family reunion.

    The summertime is usually the best time for having a family reunion. Each family is different, though. You will want to have your reunion when the most people will be able to come to it and to share in on the celebration.

    Maybe you will want to make this a week long celebration. Check with your relatives to see if this may be too long or if it is just right.

    You may need to just have a short get together for even just one day. Either way is fine.

  • 03

    Ask All Your Relatives Where They Would Like to Have This Family Reunion

    It would be wise to ask all of your relatives where they would like to have this family reunion. They would be glad that you are including them in this decision.

    Your relatives should surely have some great suggestions for you. Many of these suggestions may include reasons for why to have your family reunion in a certain place.

    The final decision will be up to you, though. Just do the best that you can. You will never be able to please everyone, so don't even try. Just be sure to take their suggestions into consideration, and book your reservations for this event well ahead of time.

  • 04

    Keep In Mind the Financial Situations of Your Relatives

    Consider the price of gas, and the price of a hotel stay. This vacation may be affordable for you, but be sure to keep in mind the financial situations of your relatives.

    Some of your relatives may have quite a bit of money. Others may not have much money at all. Try not to make this family event something that will make your family go into debt for going to.

    Keep things as easy as you can. You should be able to get some sort of discount for having a large group all staying at the same hotel. Check and compare prices before actually booking a place.

  • 05

    Make the Final Decision

    It is not easy to make the final decision on everything. It is something that only you can do, though. If you are the one planning this family reunion, everything is up to you.

    Once you make the final decision, though, you can sit back and relax. Just be sure that you do everything well in advance. That way, you will have plenty of time to just relax and wait for your upcoming family reunion to begin.

    Be sure to keep in touch with your relatives while awaiting this special event. You want to keep your head count as close as possible to what it will actually be.




Final Thoughts

Enjoy your family reunion, and consider having one every year.
