We started dating in highschool so our families met pretty early on because we both couldn’t drive and at that point we asked permission for lots of outings and they met at different events (ex: prom). My parents have even met his grandparents and vice versa, so it definitely won’t be awkward having them together at the wedding (:

Our families have not met yet. I have to say I’m a little worried (FI’s mom is sweet but, very different from me and my family). I am going to invite his mom and sisters to the bridal shower, but not sure if they would come because it is almost a 4 hour drive for them. Otherwise they will probably meet at the reherseal.

Yes our parents have met. Fi cousin got married in New York, so he parents came up for the wedding. My parents drove up to the city the next day, we went out to dinner and a show. It actually went better than I expected. Future Father-In-Law and my Dad really hit it off, and my Dad and one of his friends went on a weekend trip to visit Future Father-In-Law, and they will be coming to my parents anniversary dinner this fall.
I think its weird that Ffil took it upon himself to arrange the meeting and didn’t invite you guys. I would not allow him to shut you guys out.

Our parents haven’t met. We will have been dating about 4 years when we get married. We live in DC, his family is in upstate NY and mine in CT. There just has never been the opportunity. They will meet a couple days before the wedding when everyone the families check into the hotel. I’m not worried about it, I think they will get along fine :).

They’ve all met with the exception of FI’s dad, who lives in Hawaii, and doesn’t come back this way often.
We live in my hometown where my dad/stepmom also live an we see them weekly. Whenever FI’s mom/stepdad are in town we dinner with everyone. The last time we hosted thanksgiving here at our house FI’s parents came into town as did my mom, aunt, and grandmother.
Everyone gets along just fine. We call my mom, his mom, and my grandmother the Golden Girls. 🙂

- Wedding: February 2013 - Colonial Country Club, Ft. Myers, FL
My family has not met FI’s family. I’m scared!
My family is big and loud and obnoxious (in a good way) and we all laugh a lot and say a lot of inappropriate things to each other (again, in a good way….we’re all good sports) And all of my friends are quite…..flamboyant.
FI’s family are conservative Christians and are on the quiet side. All very nice people though, have welcomed me with open arms. Its just gonna be really interesting when they meet my family and friends.
