Five Easy Steps to Planning a Family Reunion at the Beach

Beach family reunions are a special way to get your entire family together in a place of beauty. Family is a beautiful thing, so you should put some thought into where you have your reunion. Many of us have fond memories of going to the beach with our families as children. When you host your family reunion at the beach you’ll experience the nostalgia of childhood while catching up with your closest family members. The elders will meet the infants, aunts and uncles with give hugs to nieces and nephews, parents will chat with grandparents, and you’ll wonder why it took so long to get everyone together. Even if you have some difficult family members, as many of us do, the beach offers an atmosphere of calm that will keep your reunion pleasant and enjoyable.

Here are five easy steps to follow when planning a beach family reunion:

Step 1. Pick a destination.
There are plenty of beaches to choose from. Our favorite destination for family reunions is Destin, Florida – a family-friendly location with beautiful beaches. Destin’s beaches are known to be among the most beautiful in the USA due to the powdery white sand and the jewel-toned blue and green waters of the Gulf.

Step 2. Book a venue.
Finding a venue for your family reunion can be challenging, especially if you have a big family. Consider renting a multi-family home. For the event, you’ll want to make sure the home has one of these four features (1) a lawn, (2) a pool, (3) a private beach access, or (4) a deck. This will allow you ample space to host your guests. Our large rentals for family reunions can accommodate between 20 and 50 guests at the event. If the event is held on the beach and not inside the home, you may be able to accommodate more.

Step 3. Invite your family members.
Once you’ve booked a rental home for your family reunion and secured your vendors, most of the work is done. The most important thing left to do is to contact your family. You can send out printed invitations, send a mass email, or create a Facebook event.

Step 4. Book a caterer and entertainment.
One you have an estimated guest list, you’ll know how much food to order. Ask the company you booked the venue through if they have any connections with local vendors. At Five Star, we have connections with nearly all the event vendors in Destin, and we can offer you special discounts. View our many vendor partners here. We can help you book a caterer or plan an evening beach bonfire. Our friendly concierge staff will go the extra mile to ensure your family reunion is a fun and memorable experience.

Step 5. Finalize the day-of details.
At Five Star, our staff is committed to making your events play out exactly how they were planned. We’ll call with reminders about your reservation, and on the day you arrive we’ll introduce you to the home with a tour and answer your questions about the property.
