I think the parents will follow your lead. I’m not sure if this is just coming across in the way you wrote it, but it seems like you have this feeling that your family/mother is better “sweet, gorgeous, girly” and his is more brash and “plain Jane”. Keep an open mind, don’t expect there to be any issues between your mom and his and there probably won’t. As long as neither one has the perspective that their personality or way of doing things is right or the best, it should be fine.

I think that no matter what, you’ll always think your mom is better than his?  That’s natural.  My parents are the best there ever were, his are a close second.  There’s no problem in thinking your mom is better, just make sure you make it clear that it’s just because she’s your mom, not because her personality is any better.  No one will ever expect you to love his mom more than your own 🙂

I think they will get along fine, my sisters in laws and our parents have the same differences and have never had an issue.  They’ll only see each other at certain times of the year, living so far apart, and they’ll be there because their kids are in love 🙂

My mom and my SO’s mom recently met over lunch with myself and my SO.  We were so nervous but it was fine.  They both play bridge and talked about that.
