It's Time to Plan Your Summer 2019 Family Reunion!

Summer is a great time to host a reunion and if it's been a while since you've had the entire family together, why not plan a family reunion for Summer 2019? Of course, if you want to successfully plan a family reunion, you will want to start planning as soon as possible. Summer may seem far now but there is a lot to coordinate between now and summer if you want to have a successful reunion! You'll need to nail down a date that suitable for everyone, find a venue, and more. Does planning a family reunion sound fun but you're not sure where to start? Our hotel at the Lake of the Ozarks has a few tips! 

1. Start a Budget Plan

Have a budget and stick to it. It can be very easy to get excited and get carried away, but remember that you are planning for the entire family. Try to keep lodging costs and participation costs as low as possible. Give an idea of what they would be paying if attending in the invitations. You may even want to get together with a few of your family members, even if it's over the phone, and discuss what budget they would be comfortable with.

2. Book your Venue ASAP

The best venues can tend to book up quickly, so once you get your sites on a venue that works for everyone, call them. While searching for a venue, try to find something that is centrally located for all your family members. That is one of the really great things about the Lake of the Ozarks is that we are central to the state of Missouri and an easy drive from Missouri's major cities, such as Kansas City or St. Louis for example. Even if you have family coming from out of state, Lake of the Ozarks is still a great meet up spot.

3. Send your Invitations as Early as Possible.

Give your family plenty of notice. Your family members each have their own busy lives so allow them enough time to plan accordingly so they can attend.

4. Get a Planning Team Together.

Don't try to plan this family reunion all by yourself. Delegate some of the planning to closer family members. Make it a fun, bonding experience you get to try together.

5. Plan a FUN Agenda.

Let your family know all of the fantastic activities you have planned for them in a creative way and send this agenda out ahead of time so they know what to expect. Answers questions on your agenda, such as:

Check in / Check out times
Meal options
Directions to the venue/lodging

You will certainly want to plan several group outings but be sure to leave plenty of downtime in the schedule for individual families to enjoy their vacation. Sure, the main reason for gathering is spending time with your extended family but leaving room for unplanned activities is a great practice for any vacation.
