Summers are the time for family vacations, days at the beach, shenanigans and adventures, and the ever looming family reunion. A family reunion is both looked forward to and dreaded by everyone who attends it, but it can be planned quickly and easily just by following a few simple steps. The Ramada Sioux Falls is available for family reunions and any other get together to make the planning quick and easy. Here are a few things to keep in mind when planning a family reunion.
Don’t try to plan alone
This is a family reunion, so there will naturally be a lot of people attending, which also means there will be plenty of people to help you plan. The size of this event is too large for any one person to plan on their own, so enlist the help of your family as well. Ask for donations to help pay for things like food and decorations, and assign various tasks to other people to help you plan.
Pick a date and location
Family reunions usually span a few days, not just one day. So you’ll want to find a date that works well for everyone and a location that is easily accessible and offers a lot of what you need. Out of town guests will naturally need a hotel, so planning some of the activities at the hotel is a good idea. The Ramada Sioux Falls is readily available for your family reunion. Once you set a date, do not change it for any reason. Chances are you will not be able to please everyone and not everyone is going to be able to come, but you will never settle on a date if you keep changing it for people.
Make it affordable
Short of asking everyone what their budget is, it is important that you plan a reunion that is affordable for everyone, no matter what their budget is. Plan activities that are pricier and fancy, and plan some cheap, but fun activities for those who have a smaller budget and people will be able to pick and choose what they want to do. You can also collect donations from people to help pay for different activities, such as a full family dinner to make it easier on those who may be on a tight budget or a fixed income.
Plan a wide range of activities
You have plenty of time to fit activities into, and while you don’t want to over plan things and plan too much, it’s important to plan a wide range of different types of activities so there is something for everyone to enjoy. Plan a day of golfing for the gentlemen to enjoy, or perhaps a day at the park for the kids to enjoy, or a day at an amusement park for the teenagers to enjoy. It’s important everyone is included in what’s going on and there’s something for everyone to do.
