How important is it for both of us to have met the guest list? I have friends across the country since university and some family have moved away. Is it OK for my faince to meet them on the day?
Hi It is fine :)
My H2B hasn't met half of my part of the guests lol, the way I see it, if they haven't met yet, then here's the perfect opportunity :) x
I had only met my fiancé’s friend a few time then met his new wife the day of the wedding now I’m my partner and I are one of their sons god parents and they are in our wedding north.😀
My partner has university friends coming from across the world, whilst I’ve never met them in person I have spoken to them on the phone and I’m super excited to meet them 😁 it’s fine to meet people on the day in my opinion, lots of your guests will be meeting each other for the first time and I can’t think of a better place for them to meet x
I havent met all members of his family yet, & he hasnt met all mine.. I think its the normal way it is.
I think it's only really important for immediate family.
I wouldn't worry! My H2B has met the key players but a lot of my family live in America/Canada and he's not met them. Most are flying in early so he'll meet them a day or two in advance but some he might not see until the big day ( that is if he's not been scared off by my crazy American family en masse before then 😆)
I haven't met most of his guests and he's never met anyone from my extended family. It's not a big deal for us.
Yes, of course it’s fine!!
I'm meeting my partners family the day before the wedding as they live in Australia. There are also a few of his friends that I'm meeting on the day
It's your wedding so you can do what you want. I've met most of mine but there are a couple of friend's of H2B that live far away and I haven't met yet. It's unlikely I'll meet them before and one of them is an usher (will probably meet him the week of the wedding). They are my H2B's friends so don't see why he shouldn't invite them just because we've not met.
I would just let him meet them on the day. Gives a good topic for conversation before the meal
Of course it's fine. If they're important to you, invite them and introduce them on the day. You could make fun of it. Weddings are full of people who don't know each other. Don't worry about it x
I’d say it’s fine as long as you’re both happy! I haven’t even met the best man
I think that’s the best time to meet people. That’s the one time all the people you both love and care about come together to see you x
I am meeting a few of my fiancés friends on the day.. will be good to have new people to chat too!
I still haven't met the best man, seeing haw we lived in different countries to begin with, but I'm not worried, if he wants someone there, then they must be worth having, hell be mating some of my best friends and family for the first time too that week :)
I think it depends on how big a wedding you are having. If you are only having a small wedding then I would maybe leave them off the day time and give them an evening invitation instead
Weddings are a great time to meet new people, even if you are the bride and groom. Just keep in mind that your fiance may not get to spend much quality time getting to know your old friends with all of the other guests and festivities :)
