Once you’ve decided to host your reunion at Sand Hollow Resort, you will want to start planning it. This simple guide will help you break down the steps to arranging a reunion that your entire family will remember for years to come.


1. Select a date


The most important part of planning a family reunion is choosing a date that will work with most of your family members’ schedules. While you can’t accommodate everyone, it’s good to get a feel for what will work for the majority of your family members. A quick and easy way to get feedback is through a private discussion on social media.


2. Plan your guest list


In order to plan appropriately for food, activities, and lodging, you’ll want to determine how many people will be attending the reunion. Decide whether you’d like to just invite aunts and uncles, cousins, and grandparents or second cousins, great aunts and uncles, etc.


3. Book rooms


Once you know who will be attending, you’ll want to book rooms for everyone. No matter how small or large your group will be, we have plenty of vacation home options to accommodate everyone!


4. Plan the food


Everyone knows that food is one of the most important parts of any get together. You’ll want to consider if your group would rather prepare the food, eat at The Grille, or a little of both! All of our vacation homes come complete with fully-stocked kitchens, so you’ll have everything you need to prepare meals. In addition, The Grille has a wide variety of menu options that will please even the pickiest of eaters. To guarantee seating for everyone in your group, you’ll want to make a reservation at The Grille.


5. Decide on activities


Fun activities are another family reunion memory maker! Whether you prefer to stay at Sand Hollow Resort and enjoy a day of golfing with the crew, or other on-site activities such as Paint Nite or live music at the Clubhouse, or you prefer to venture off to one of the nearby national parks, there are a wide variety of entertainment options.


6. Send out invitations


Once you have all of the details nailed down, you’ll want to send out invitations. This can easily be done online with an RSVP link for quick replies. Or if you prefer, there is nothing wrong with sending out traditional paper invitations. Just make sure you get the word out one way or the other.


Once you complete these steps, you’ll be on your way to hosting an unforgettable family reunion! Contact us if you have questions about planning your event.
