About a month after I met his, and two weeks or so after he met mine. Everyone came to my senior recital!

  • Wedding: September 2009

Our parents met the day we got married–and they’ve seen each other maybe 2 or 3 times in the year and a half since then. They’re not bothered by it.

My parents are divorced, Fiance’s are not, so it was 3 separate meetings.  My mom and stepdad met his parents after we had been dating a little more than 2 years.  My dad met his parents after we got engaged, about 3 years into our relationship.

Our parents live on opposite coasts so I didn’t think was weird at all.

They met about a month after we got engaged. They live in different states. And it was really awkward…

My parents met his Dad and Step Mom after we were together a little over a year (and had been engaged a month).  My parents won’t meet his Mom and Step-Dad until the week of the wedding! Eek!

Our parents met a year after we did.  It probably would have been sooner but my parents live in the States and his live in Australia.  I was worried about the  meeting as our moms are EXACTLY alike and we knew they would either love each other and hate each other.  Fortunately, it was the former!   The wedding will only be the second time they will have met, although the two moms communicate somewhat regularly over email.

They met at our undergraduate graduation, about 2 1/2 years into us dating. Won’t see eachother again until the wedding though.

my parents met his mom and step dad when we graduated from university. But they haven’t met his dad and step mom yet.

I worry actually about how the rest of our families are going to mesh at the wedding… we have some pretty strong personalities

  • Wedding: December 2010

We were together almost a year & I threw him a surprise party. I figured it was a good way for several members of his family to meet several members of mine & the presence of music, lots of people & an open bar would make it go a bit better.

It went well & then his parents came to our family Thanksgiving that year & have had dinner at my mother’s house a few times since then. His parents have not hosted anything yet (and are not likely to since Mother-In-Law is anti-social & doesn’t seem to like me).

His mom (his dad died) flew out to Oregon while we were starting to do wedding planning. She was there for about half the time we were out there. She stayed at a hotel. It was nice. Lots of time to talk. His mom and my mom got along very well so it was just fine. His mom is so easy-going, though. I totally lucked out.

Our parents came to help us move when we bought our condo together.  It was terrible because Darling Husband got called in to work, and it was totally non-negotiable mid-move.  So it was just me and our parents… moving.

Our families met about a year after we started dating, at our college graduation. They have seen eachother quite a few times since, for some holidays and birthdays.
