@totheislnds: OK that seems weird. I would probably ask Fiance to tell his parents that the priest can’t come. Do they need moral support or something to meet your parents? I don’t know, but it just seems like this should be a private thing between both sets of parents, and you and your Fiance. Having the priest kind of makes a potentially awkward meeting even moreso.

I think that is a little weird for a first meeting between the two families.

I would feel weird too..and peeved that plans were changed like that..especially to something as special as your parents first meeting. =)

I have a funny story about my parents meeting FI’s parents.  Fiance and I were only together for a few weeks when my parents  were “dying to meet his parents.”  I freaked, then came up with million reasons to avoid having them meet until at least 1 year later (mom went out of state, relative in town..working..you name it..)  One weekend within one month of us dating, Fiance and I took my parents shopping at a new mall.  We were at a department store, Fiance went to look for an associate while I was browsing when he came back and said “you should introduce them.” which I heard “you introduce” so I introduced myself to the sales lady even though I was beyond confused why Fiance wanted me to do that. She looked at me funny when i shook her hand as I glaced at Fiance, him stepping aside and revealed his parents standing right behind him (FI is 6′ and towers over his parents at 5’5 and 5’3). My mouth dropped to the floor and I blurted out “crap” then walked back and forth not knowing which direction to go (I think I must have wanted to hide). FI’s parents are really shy people so they were literally hiding behind Fiance.
