Ok I say keep it small and simple, who’s hosting? Are you having it somewhere? Just try to relax, it will be a little akward at first, but your families will gel and soon you’ll be sitting back with the Fiance looking at how awesome it is that everyone is getting along!!!

Maybe you could invite some of your and FI’s friends that could help mix with the group and the two families together.  It’ll probably be a little awkward at first, but it’ll be okay.  It’s nerve wracking, I know, but it’ll be fine!!!

We had ours and I noticed that my Fiance worked part of the group while I talked with the others.  Then we’d hangout with each other and switch places.  We didn’t talk prior about doing this it just naturally happened that way for us.

One thing we did at another party that was fun and helped break the ice and get people to mingle was a game.  We had both families and different ages from 20s to 60s.

As we walked in the host stuck a name tag on our backs.  We weren’t allowed to look at what the name tag said.  We then had to find our matching name tag. 

So for example, my name tag read Wilma Flintstone and someone else’s read Fred Flintstone.  You couldn’t tell people their tag’s name right out.  You could only give them clues.  So people would say to me something like, “Yabadabado” or she “wears white pearls.”

After about 20-30 mintues someone finally found their match and they got a prize and then we could all find out who we were.  It was fun and got you to go up and introduce yourself to other people.

Hope that helps give you some ideas
