We Are Family!

Organizing the first meeting of the parents is traditionally the responsibility of the groom's parents, but this may be altered according to circumstance. The bride and groom should take part in helping plan this meeting since they best know when the meeting will be convenient for everyone.

Who actually hosts the occasion is a matter of preference. If there are step families, the bride and groom will often organize several get-togethers.

If there are serious rifts in the family, the bride and groom can plan ahead. They cannot fix the situations, but with forethought they can prepare themselves and hopefully head off any serious situations.
