Does your fiance act like his family? If not, then don’t worry about it, you’re marrying HIM, and it’s HIM your family will be seeing, not his family, and your family will certaintly not see HIS side of the family anymore after the wedding (|I think that’s how it goes…)

I am in the same boat lvecchione!!! His family is all Christian from the midwest, and I have a crazy, swearing, sometimes mean family from Boston. They have never met so I am honestly feeling the same worry! I guess at the end of the day, though, it doesn’t matter whether they get along or like each other, bc you are marrying HIM as Roxanne said, and anyone who goes to your wedding should celebrate that! That being said, I really hope my family can control their f-bombs..and I have also prepared his family for how my family behaves so at least they have an idea!

@[email protected]:  Good idea.

It is a great idea to prepare YOUR side of the family so they know, but you can’t control HIS side, so it’s out of your hands…. At least your side KNOWS what to expect, and may not be so offended…. maybe…. hopefully

I am in the same boat, except it’s MY family who has the raunchy sense of humor. FH’s family is super conservative and religious. I was freaking out about it for awhile, because our wedding is the weekend after the presidential election, but have opted to just trust everyone to be on their best behavior. As long as you prepare both sides (I prepared my family with “do-not-go-there” topics, and he did the same), it should be fine. The bottom line is that it’s YOUR wedding, and no one wants to be a wedding day ruiner.

@LovelyLaura8:  You can’t really control the people at your wedding. You can just give them the necessary information, but not in a scary way (i.e. “His family is really conservative, so if you could steer clear of sensitive subjects like gay marriage and abortion, that would be great. He talked to his parents as well, and they’re going to stay away from politics and religion. I love you guys so much…just trying to avoid an unnecessary scene.”) If they know to tone it down a little bit, they will. If they don’t, then you’ll have some great stories for your kids!
