My in laws are inviting for both of our families on a 3 day trip to a secluded beach resort so they can get to know each other better/ spend time together before the wedding as parents live out of the country. Its probably going to be late this summer but they havent decided on the date yet. They are paying for the majority of it so It feels rude to decline. They have met each other briefly and got along well, but I am still worried. I am also worried because my younger brothers have been invited on the trip and sometimes they can be a bit too much. Do you guys have any tips/tricks?

We went on a trip to Vegas with my parents and InLaws. Everything was fine. No drama at all. My tip is remember everyone doesn’t have to be together at all times. If your in-laws or parents want to go do something not everyone has to go do the same thing.

When you say ‘secluded beach resort’ do you mean its a full on resort with lots going on , just a long way from anywhere , or it is pretty much just beach huts and a restaurant ,kind of eco thing?
If the former then you can get away from each other and not have to be polite 24/7. If not , well, idk….It only 3 days though, so I guess it’s ok …

Three days… maybe. Anything longer than that and I start jumping down my own mother’s throat. I guess I’d do it but only if there were interesting things to do and see there.

- Wedding: September 2017 - Pearson Convention Centre
We have gone up to my parents cottage many times with my parents and in laws and many times also with our siblings, we have never had issues everyone does their own thing and we eat breakfast and dinner together and during the day we are free to do our own thing.
