Planning a reunion is a big task. A week’s preparation will not work for such a big event. Working out the logistics will take plenty of time. So, it is advisable to start planning your reunion with at least a couple of weeks in your pocket.
This time will allow you to contact all your batch mates and send out the invites. Booking a venue and persuading people to switch up their plans will also be easier if you start planning.
Stalk Your Classmates
It’s been years since you last talked to your classmates. It’s only natural to lose touch with most of them. When making a list of all your classmates, the first step you should take is to take the graduating class’ list from your school. That will help you ensure you’re not missing anyone.
You can easily create a group on Facebook, announcing the reunion and keep adding people and giving them updates. You can also create various polls asking people what date would suit them the most.
Secure a Venue
Good venues are very difficult to come across, mostly because they are booked well before big parties and events. Before choosing a venue, you need to ensure that its size is big enough to incorporate all the students in your batch.
Moreover, after 20 to 30 years, it’s only natural that many people in your graduating class will be married. So, make sure you have extra provisions – at least 30% – if they decide to have their spouses tag along.
Plan Some Fun Activities
Any reunion is incomplete without some fun games and activities. Granted, it’s fun to mingle with your classmates and catch up with them, but activities add that tinge of entertainment to the party.
You can also have a theme for your reunion and ask everyone to dress accordingly. Next, you can also have numerous awards like – The Best Dressed Couple, The Class Clown, The Fashionista, etc.
Don’t forget to arrange thank you gifts for the guests. Chocolate bouquets in the UK are among the most gifted items in events. Consider including that as a thank you gift!
Promote The Event
High school isn’t the best phase of their life for everyone. So, not all of them would like to come to the reunion. To prevent this, you might need to incentivise people to spare time and clear their schedules.
You can start by creating a website solely dedicated to the reunion and make blog posts about it. Help people reminisce about their high school memories and persuade them to come to the reunion.
You can also use various social media platforms for promoting your event like – Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
Organising a high-school reunion can be mentally taxing if you don’t know how to do it right. To ensure a fun experience, you might even need to micromanage some things. But, it is important to remember that your purpose in attending and organising the reunion is to catch up with your old friends and have fun.
