A family reunion is more than just a chance to connect with long-lost relatives. Hosting a big family get-together is a wonderful way to meet family members you never knew you had, get to know your distant relatives better and even form new friendships. Once you’ve compiled a list of everyone from your great aunts to your second cousin Sue and set a date for the big affair, it’s time to send out the family reunion invitations. If you’re not sure what to say on those invites, let these family reunion invitation wording samples inspire you.
Traditional Family Reunion Invitation Wording
Your family reunion can be anything you want it to be. But traditionally, a standard family reunion is a large picnic in the park, potluck meal at someone’s home, or a party at a rented venue. The picnic in the park is the most common, and with good reason- there will be plenty of room for kids to play, it’s a great opportunity to enjoy some warm weather, and you can even enjoy some family games together. Here are some family reunion invitation wording samples for traditional reunions:
