Whether you are planning a family reunion for a small or large group, certain steps must be taken to ensure a memorable and meaningful experience. Finding the perfect venue to satisfy the needs and wants of such a large group can be incredibly difficult. However, when you partner with Stokely Event Center for your family reunion, you are sure to have something for everyone! Here are some steps that can help ensure your reunion is a success:
Create a Plan
Like any other event, planning a family reunion requires a detailed budget and list of your expectations as the planner. It is important to pick a date far enough out to ensure adequate time is available for attendees to work it into their schedule. In some cases, family reunion planning begins nearly 12 months in advance. If you have created a committee to help with the planning, list possible dates and determine the best time for the reunion as a group.
Choose a Venue
While many family reunions are held in outdoor locations, many small and large groups have begun investing in venues for health and convenience reasons. If everyone in attendance is sweating to death at an outdoor location, they are less likely to have fun or stay long. Instead, seek out a venue that meets the space requirements for your guest list comfortably and still provides entertainment options.
Once the date and venue have been determined, it is time to start sending invitations. Sending the invitations far enough in advance is critical to ensure that everyone has the ability to work it into their schedule and determine travel arrangements. Once the invitations are sent, determine the activities and food for the event and you are set!
