Our families didn’t meet until the rehearsal dinner! We live in Chicago and my family lives on the east coast. Even after 4 years of dating, no one was ever in the same place at the same time. Everything was just fine and everyone got along.  Good luck!

I think everyone will get along just fine! its normal to worry about it, but everyone is there for you guys, and will go out of their way to be extra friendly!

Our families won’t meet until our ceremony (or perhaps a few hours before.) I’m not concerned- we all live far apart so even if they don’t like eachother (which I don’t anticipate!) it’s not like they’ll see eachother often.

With any luck, our parents will never meet ๐Ÿ™‚ My mom has an extreme case of the crazies and refuses to go to the wedding.  She has also forbidden my dad from going.

Our parents didn’t meet until the engagement party either and every went great.  They live a 4 hour plan ride away, we live in my home state so unless my ILs are visiting us, they will likely not see each other anyways.

If it makes you feel better, our families won’t meet until the day before the ceremony =D They are from different countries!

We didn’t have an engagement party, and our parents would most likely not meet until the week of the wedding.  We would have liked them to meet before then, but schedules just didn’t like up.  C’est la vie.

Our families won’t be meeting until a few days before the wedding. My family are in the UK and his are in Canada. I’m hoping it will go well, but on the bright side they only have to put up with each other for a couple of weeks if they really can’t find any common ground!

Our families probably aren’t going to get together until the rehearsal dinner, and frankly, I like it that way. I feel like people are nicer when they first meet each other, and since they don’t know each other, they don’t have any pre-conceived notions built up or prior frustrations to vent (unlike, say, FMIL’s family and FFIL’s family).
