- Wedding: August 2012
Hey, I need some unbiased opinions.
A little background, I was adopted as an infant. My family means the world to me. I’ve known my whole life I was adopted and it’s never been a big deal or an issue. It’s just a fact. My birth mom died when I was a kid, so I never met her, although I met her family years ago. We are not very close, but once in awhile speak on FB.
Anyway, a few years ago I met my birthfather, and while we are not super close, he is being invited to the wedding (FI and I are paying for the wedding ourselves, as a side note). I AM, however, close with some of my birth cousins on his side, and one will be a bridesmaid.
My parents/family have never met my birth family. They aren’t exactly ecstatic about my birth father being in my life (more of being overprotective of me than anything else), but they are not angry about it or anything.
Our wedding is in August, just a few months away now. I’m thinking it’d be nice if they all met before the wedding, and definitely should. But how should I go about this? Have everyone over for dinner?
This all probably seems really stupid for asking, and there’s probably a really simple answer, but for me, it’s very….touchy, I guess.
Any advice or suggestions? Thanks so much!
