Planning a Family Reunion: Making More Decisions

Once you’re through planning the family reunion date and location, it’s time send a save the date invitation and move along the event planning timeline.


Phases to Planning a Family Reunion:

  1. First, take the first few baby steps. Determine type of gathering you want, determine a date, and decide on a location.
  2. Then, make more decisions. Decide length of time, who should be invited, what activities you want to do, and how to handle the financial aspects of planning a family reunion.
  3. Finally, move into action. Create a master checklist of everything there is to do. Use an event planning timeline and family reunion planner e-book to help you stay on track.



More Decisions to Make

  • something service or activity oriented
  • a gathering focused on another family event, such as a 50th wedding anniversary or 90th birthday party (Ideas create more ideas!)
  • will you use a family reunion theme?
