Family reunion invitations

There’s nothing better than spending time reconnecting with family—especially far-away relatives you don’t get to see often. Gather your kin for an epic family reunion with an online family reunion invitation from Paperless Post, and get everyone pumped for a day or weekend of sibling shenanigans and cousinly capers.

Why choose online family reunion invitations?

A huge perk of sending family reunion invitations online through Paperless Post is the ease and speed with which you can prepare and send them. Eschew the stamps, paper cuts, and potential post office delays, and send your invitations via text, email, or a shareable link.

Once your invitations are “out the door,” our behind-the-scenes tools make it a piece of cake to manage your guest list. You’ll be able to see in real time when family members open their invitations and respond. Track your RSVPs, send reminders to invitees who haven’t opened their invitation yet, and send important updates to the family with our guest messaging tool.

Family reunion invitation ideas

Any reunion is a joyous occasion, and your invitations should reflect that—get your family excited with an invitation that hints at what’s to come. For a laid-back, backyard reunion, choose a design featuring strung-up lanterns or delectable BBQ bites. Dining at a fancy venue? Pick an elegant family reunion invitation template with gold lettering, foil-stamped accents, and a minimalist, modern vibe.

For a design that tugs at guests’ heartstrings and gets them extra-excited to reunite, pull the whole family into the limelight with a photo invitation. Upload a single snapshot, or create a photo collage of all the fun you had at your last event.

A decade-themed invitation is a fun way to excite and engage the fam, whether it’s the roaring 20s, the mod 60s, or a 90s throwback. A theme that plays on the family name is a clever option, too—like a forest motif for the Forrester family reunion invitation or an all-green invitation for the Green get-together.

We’ve teamed up with professional designers like Kelly Wearstler and Linda and Harriett, whose family reunion invites feature beautiful abstract designs and gorgeous illustrations.

How to customize an online family reunion invitation

Paperless Post’s best-in-class invitations are ready to send once you enter the details of your family reunion—but if you want to make your reunion invitation extra-special, our design tools make it easy to customize it to your liking. Edit the invitation wording (include an inside family joke for fun,) choose the fonts and colors you want, then pick an envelope, liner, and backdrop for a fully-coordinated finale. Include additional details and information with Blocks—add a nostalgic video, provide lodging information, and include a schedule of activities.

Since you can customize so many details, browse our other collections, like get-together invitations or celebration invitations, to find a template that jumps out at you. Then simply alter the text, and voilà! You’ve successfully created a one-of-a-kind family reunion invitation that’ll get your kin excited about the fun times ahead.

How do you host a family reunion?

All you really need to pull off a memorable family reunion is a venue and some food and drinks. For a budget-friendly reunion, host a picnic at a centrally located park, sizzle up some hotdogs and kebabs in the backyard, or head out to a nearby campground for a couple of nights of s’mores and ghost stories. If budgets allow, rent out a restaurant, head off for a weekend of skiing, or book a tropical resort.
