    I don’t think all of our siblings met until our engagement party, which was 8 years into the relationship. My family lives about an hour away, plus my sister was out of state for college so there was just never really a time when they would all be together. We didn’t see it as a big deal.

    kayyy727: Our families didn’t meet until the day before the wedding (with a couple exceptions).

    Obviously we had met each others parents, I had met DH’s family and siblings and he had met mine but those people had never met each other – we were together 9.5 years when we got married.

    DH and I met in New Brunswick, he’s from Nova Scotia, I’m from Newfoundland and my dad lives in Ontario.  Everyone meeting just wasn’t feasible.  There was never a time that everyone was even close to being in the same place. 

    We thought about doing a formal meet and greet dinner and then scrapped it.

    FIL, BIL and newphew met my dad & half brother at a baseball game with DH 2 days before the wedding.  MIL met step mom at the pool with my half brother and DH’s nephew.

    Everyone else met the morning of the rehearsal in the hotel lobby.

    I wouldn’t make any special plans for siblings to meet each other. It isn’t particularly necessary that they get to know each other. I assume you have met each other’s siblings?
