Yeah, our immediate families have met, but our extended families haven’t.  Our wedding is going to be very interesting for sure!  Especially since his family is all Mexican and mine is all Caucasian.  Hopefully the families will make an attempt to get to know each other instead of hiding at their own separate tables.

Our parents met when we bought our house since we figured they’d see each other anyway.  I was a little nervous, I was more nervous about “the wedding talk” the day we were supposed to all sit down.  I actually got drunk (not intentionally…I only wanted 1 drink) before we went and it ended up being a surprise engagement party and much easier to deal with the extend fams meeting each other than I thought it would be.

We’ll be in the same situation too! It’s a little nervewracking, especially given our different backgrounds, but everyone is looking forward to meeting one another, so hopefully it’ll just be one big happy weekend!

Heck, i’ll be meeting most of his family for the first time at the wedding! he has met  most of my immediate family (aunts and uncles and what not), but he very rarely sees a lot of his family.

plus, we have been dating for nearly 7 years, regularly spend time with the others parents, but our parents have met once, at my 21st party, and due to the masses of my family bombarding them, didnt actually spend that much time together.

they live a 10 min drive from eachother, we just havent had them together yet! we should probably get around to doing that!

I am nervous. My mom is very sarcastic and I worry that the future inlaws might not get it. She is fun but tends to say some off beat things.

We have been together for 4 1/2 years and our parents just met. I was SO nervous. My parents are rather reserved, still fun and super sweet. My FI parents are hippies, I mean like PEACE LOVE & HAPPINESS! Complete opposite of my parents! It went well though. Now, we have to get through all of the wedding events where everyone will be coming together. It should be interesting!

It will be interesting because FI’s family does not speak much english.  But our wedding will be fun no matter what.

@Bright Wings, Have you told your family so that they are semi-prepared?
