A class reunion is an event many people look forward to, an opportunity to reconnect with old friends, reminisce and even proudly show off your accomplishments. If you have been given the task of planning your school’s class reunion, you may be wondering where to begin. You want it to be an event to remember, the perfect complement to the fun school years you all shared.

Here are a few tips you can keep in mind during the planning process to ensure the big event goes off without a hitch.

Connect with Your Classmates

The first step to planning your class reunion is also arguably the most important: putting together the guest list. Tracking down your classmates can sometimes be a bit of a challenge, although, in this day and age of social media, it has become easier than in years past.

Lock Down a Date

Once you have connected with your classmates, it is time to decide on a date for the event. Try suggesting a handful of different dates, asking for input from your classmates.

Form a Committee

Taking a team approach will make the planning task more manageable and will also give other classmates an enjoyable sense of ownership over the reunion. Take an inventory of individual strengths, as well as resources or connections that certain classmates will have.

Think Venues.

The location of your reunion plays a significant role in the overall ambiance of the event, so choose wisely.

Think Catering

Your classmates will be happy to enjoy each other’s company, but they will also want to eat well at the reunion. Choose a catering company that can offer a variety of quality dishes so that you can be sure to accommodate specific tastes and dietary needs. You should also ask your caterer if they provide beverage services. Finally, the catering staff should strive for excellent service, with the experience and knowledge to help you make the event go smoothly.
