Giving it a Timeline:
I realize that some of you may still be a bit uncomfortable with the specifics of the plan that I have laid out before you. In order to give you a bit more guidance, I thought it would be helpful to lay out these steps in a time line so you can make sure to stay on track with the planning process.
There are several steps you should take well before the reunion. Ideally, you should start these things a year ahead if time. If you are short on time, you still should give yourself six months for these steps:
Three months before the reunion, you should take care of:
One month before the big day, you should:
One week before the family reunion, you should:
If you have completed all of these steps, you will be sure to have a wonderful family reunion! It has been wonderful guiding you through the planning steps and I wish you the best of luck with your special day. Please, feel free to ask any questions that I may have left unanswered. Also, I would love to hear from you about your family reunion, so please tell me all about it (and post some pictures too!) when it is done!
