  • Wedding: September 2014

Our parents and siblings met 4 years or so ago at a birthday party thrown for me by SO’s mom. Prior to that, Future Sister-In-Law and my mom actually worked together. We all live within 15 minutes of each other. We’d been dating about 4 years when the birthday party happened. My mom, Future Mother-In-Law, Future Sister-In-Law, and I go shopping or to the movies or out to lunch pretty regularly.

My parents met DH’s mom and brother a few days before our rehearsal dinner. It was nice that they came down a bit before the wedding so they had a chance to meet in a non-hectic setting. My parents had them over for dinner and a meet and greet.




DH’s dad and stepmom didn’t come down until the day of the rehearsal, which they showed up half an hour late to. They also left the rehearsal dinner after only an hour or so (AND they left our wedding around 9 PM, therefore didn’t stay for the majority of the reception and did not help with cleanup ovbiously). It was so rude. I tried my best to put on a happy face as did DH and my parents, but none of us were impressed.




I mentioned something to my Mother-In-Law about it and she just said “Are you surprised?” I freaking love her…lol. Good thing she is awesome because I am not a fan of Father-In-Law an by extension SMIL

My now Mother-In-Law orchestrated Easter with my family a few months into DH and I dating. It didn’t go so hot. She asked my parents what they could do to “end this” and that we couldn’t know what we were doing because it was “too fast” and we were “too young”. Dh was 25 at this point. Awkward thing, my parents had been married for years and had two children by the time they were our ages; AND married after less than a year.

Maybe 4 months afterwards? Not a sit down dinner, but they were having a big party for a wedding anniversary and told me to bring my parents.

Our parents actually knew each other before we even started dating. We are from the same town, which is pretty small so it is hard not to know most everybody. My fiances uncle and my dad were also really good friends in high school so they our parents knew each other through that connection as well.

  • Wedding: November 2013

Our families met at the wedding. My family is here on the East Coast, and his whole family (FIL, Mother-In-Law and SIL included) are in California. Needless to say there hasn’t been a whole lot of opportunity for them to meet, lol. But they met at the Rehearsal/Dinner, and then at the wedding, and then off we went. I’m sure there will be other life events that they will be together at, but..*shrug* Mother-In-Law drives me nuts so I don’t mind the distance, haha.

  • Wedding: July 2014 - Prague

Mine have not met and won’t until the wedding! My FI’s family lives in England and mine live in California and Prague, so it’s sort of normal. Plus, we’re both over 40, so we’re very independent.

They met at the rehearsal! My Fiance and his family all live in England, and my family all live in the US, so there was no other time to meet.
