Figuring out how to host a high school reunion can be a great way to rekindle old friendships and catch up with people that you may not have seen for many years. That said, when planned improperly, a high school reunion can be no less than a disaster. Be sure to do some prep-work before inviting all your old high school friends out.
Depending upon how long you have been out of high school, finding the people you wish to invite can be one of the most difficult aspects of the process. Fortunately, social networking via the Internet has made it easier than ever to get in touch with people that you might otherwise have not been able to in the past. Using social networking sites and contacting the school for information on former classmates is the best way to get in touch with the people you wish to invite to your reunion.
The location of your high school reunion can range from a banquet hall to your own living room, depending upon how many people you are planning to invite. Remember that the smaller your reunion, the less expensive it will be to put together. Choose a location that will allow you to stay within your budget will still providing enough room for the reunion to be successful.
The best high school reunions are ones that are themed. Choosing a theme can be difficult, and the most important aspect to remember is that everyone invited should feel as comfortable as possible with the theme at hand. Themes can be related to season, current events or otherwise. For best results, poll all of your invitees on which theme they would prefer.
Hosting a high school reunion doesn’t have to be as stressful as many people make it out to be, so long as you take the time to prepare and get everything in order.
