    (All caps is rude but I just typed this in an email to inky and I thought I’d share for any future bees that stumble upon this looking for advice for a similar situation. Sorry in advance for caps!)

     

    I HONESTLY THINK IT MIGHT BE NICE TO NOT HAVE THAT BE THEIR FIRST MEETING. MAKE IT AT CALM/RELAXED ENVIRONMENT WHERE YOU’RE DOING NOTHING BUT INTRODUCING THE TWO FAMILIES. YOU AND KEVIN WILL BE DISTRACTED LOOKING AT THE VENUE WITH NEW EYES AND IT JUST WON’T BE THE SAME. MY VOTE, BY FAR, IS TO MEET FIRST AND THEN AT A DIFFERENT TIME EVERYBODY CAN GO TO BRUNCH THERE.

    I like that idea better 🙂  (But I still suggest meeting for coffee or at a park for an hour or so before going to brunch. Just gives everyone a little bit to acquaint without going into full-criqique mode, y’know?)

    I think it’s a good idea.  I would schedule the coordinator for after the brunch for just you and your Fiance.  May as well not waste the time that you have there, right?

    Sometimes it’s easier when people are meeting for the first time, if they do have something else to focus on. Meeting and greeting while discussing the venue, the food etc might help everyone to relax.

    The downside might be that they may have difficulty giving you honest feedback in front of the other relatives. You could always contact them individually afterwards to validate their comments.
