Planning a reunion is no easy task, but if you plan ahead and stay organized, you can pull off any type of reunion event, from family reunions to high school and college reunions. When starting the planning process, it is important to remember that small steps will help you reach the next milestone. Here are three tips you will want to start with when you are planning your next reunion event.
Choose the Date
Before you can make any other plans, you will first need to choose the date on which the reunion event will be held. This will help all of your planning and organization efforts fall into place, because you will have a clear deadline to meet. Dates can be difficult if you are trying to coordinate with many schedules, and that is why getting started as early as possible is key to starting the planning process.
Collect Volunteers to Help
The bigger the event, the more people you will need to help put all of your plans in place. If you ask people to volunteer to take on the smaller tasks early on, you can pull off any size event and in many cases you can also save some money. You can get volunteers to help craft centerpieces, call attendees to remind them to RSVP, help setup before the event starts and more.
Consider the Location
After choosing the date, one of the most important planning decisions you will make is where to hold the event. There are many aspects to this decision including how many people are expected to attend, what activities will be a part of the celebration and whether you want to hold the event inside or outdoors. The location should also be convenient for most attendees to get to from where they live in order to maximize your attendance.
