    My mom met FI’s parents after we had been dating for about 2 /2 years.  My dad met them after we got engaged.

    our parents met before we got engaged, when we bought our first house, we figured they’d run into each other at some point.  My parents didn’t want to meet his until we were engaged before that.

    The moms met at my shower. Its pretty funny because we all live in the same town!

    If they hadnt met at the shower they would meet on the plane ride to the Bahamas, they both booked seperately and didnt know what days the other set was going (its different days than FH and I)

    • Wedding: December 2009

    About 2 months after we were engaged, we all went out to dinner and I gave our mothers a framed engagement picture of us.  I also had some cake samples for us to taste.  My parents live out of town that’s why it took so long for them to meet.

    They won’t meet until just before the wedding . . . We tried to work it out so that they met earlier (we have been together for 4 years!), but with 5,000 miles separating our families, it proved to be too difficult to arrange.

    They met before we got engaged.  Although they live 11 hours apart form each other, my parent’s came down for my college graduation (30 minutes from DH’s parents) so they planned to get together for a whole afternoon then.

    A couple months after we got engaged. Our families only live about 2 hours apart, but it took a while to find a date that worked for everyone. The six of us went out for lunch.

    Our moms met at my fiance’s baseball games, maybe a month and a half after we started dating (we started dating during our last semester in high school).  All four parents finally met while taking pictures for my prom I believe, about three and a half months after we started dating.

    Our parents aren’t going to meet as far as I’m concerned.  My parents aren’t in the picture, one I have met a few times and the other was abusive so I don’t have contact with them.

    Ours met after we moved in together, before we got engaged.  We wanted to make sure they met before we moved away together (both our families live outside of NYC and we moved to the Bay Area).
