Because mine just did. After more than two and a half years of dating, we finally got our parents together for a dinner at Arezzo in Scott's hometown of Westport, Connecticut. Our families live just one and a half hours away from each other, but there never seemed to be a good time to do it.
While the men (my dad, Scott, and Scott's dad) hung out at the house, my mother, Scott's mother, and I met up seperately at The Plumed Serpent to try on dresses for the first time and to figure out the best silhouette for my body. Talk about a way to break the ice! They chatted away and sipped complimentary Champagne while I wiggled and got clipped into gown after gown. Alison Fischer's beautiful bridal salon wowed me with its selection of classic, elegant dresses. Not gonna lie: I was totally nervous about trying on gowns, like excited-nervous. But Lisa, my personal consultant, went through ever dress in the store with me and really warmed me up to the process. And we all came to the same conclusion: slim trumpet is for me! Goal accomplished.
Dinner, great conversation, delicious food, and wine followed. All in all, it was a great first meeting—and there will be many more to come!
Have you and your fiance's parents met yet? Were you or are you nervous about it? I know I was!
