There are several reasons people have family reunions; to reconnect, celebrate an event, commemorate heritage, or just for fun. Often, families are separated by distance, and day-to-day responsibilities, which makes it difficult to keep in touch on a regular basis. This past year proved to be even more challenging for families to get together, making family reunions even sweeter.
You will need to consult with your family first to iron out any details about special requests, and preferences concerning dates or location. This will also give you an idea of how many people will be attending.
Set a Date
Plans should start being made if possible at least six months prior to the date, especially if you have family out of town. This will allow for travel arrangements, to take time off work for adults, and for school-aged children to attend as well. The duration of the event will also need to be taken into consideration.
Make a Budget
This is a crucial step in the process and can mean the difference between success or failure. Once you have an idea of how much you are working with, you can budget for the venue, catering, decorations, games, rentals, etc. Use of a spreadsheet can ease this process.
Choose a Location
Take your budget into account and the distance the venue is from your family. Club Venetian is experienced in family reunion events, and our staff is here to help.
