We are well acquainted with cruise ships and resorts that specialize in family travel. We can help families with last minute itinerary changes and cancelled flights, as well as arranging for family members with special needs. For large groups, we may have access to pre-negotiated airfare and hotel rates otherwise unavailable. And, our agent can serve as a friendly and patient third party to help prod those family members who may not be quick to decide on travel plans.
Reunions are not necessarily for families. Club members, classmates, alumni, and more can follow these same guidelines:
Planning a family reunion can become complicated, especially a large reunion involving lots of people. Experienced reunion planners recommend that families begin planning one or two years in advance.
Picking a date that works for everyone can be one of the most difficult-but one of the most important-steps in planning a family reunion.
By communicating your plans to organize a family reunion early, your guests will have adequate time to plan to attend, and you can generate interest in catching up with family and creating new family memories at the reunion.
Family reunions are unique in that they can involve people from all over the world, each with different interests. Your guests may span up to four generations and it is important to consider ages and physical limitations when planning activities. Grandparents may not want to participate in activities like scuba diving or water-skiing. Likewise, children may not enjoy ballroom dancing or a mahjong tournament.
The best reward for organizing a large get-together is being able to enjoy the day when it arrives. Planning a family reunion can be a stressful endeavor. Ask for help so it does not become so burdensome that you are not able to spend time with your guests and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
One way to ensure you have time to enjoy the reunion is to recruit willing family members to take care of last minute details. You will be surprised how much help is available if you just ask.
