The moment has finally arrived for you to meet your fiancé’s family. You’re excited and nervous at the same time. You’re excited because you’ll become part of the family of the love of your life and you’ll meet the people that nurtured her from birth. You’re also nervous because you’re unsure if you’ll meet up with their expectations and if they’ll like you.
How do you solve this? Below are 9 ways to impress your fiancé’s family at the very first meeting.
- Dress to impress
Choose a very nice outfit that will make you look handsome and breathtaking. Look decent and simple, and make sure that you don’t over-do it while trying to impress her family.
- Pick up flowers
Ask your fiancé about her family’s preferences and ask if you should buy flowers or other gifts that they would adore. Making the wrong choice by buying a gift they don’t like will give a wrong impression at the first meeting.
So do your homework before choosing the right gift to buy for them!
- Help in setting up the table
Regardless of your gender, assisting in setting up the table will create a good mark that will be remembered for eternity. This wins hearts like good manners and decency!
- Mingle instead of sitting in a corner
Even though you feel intimated and shy, do not just sit in a corner like a lonely person. Try to act cool and mingle with them, even if it is very difficult. Also, do not talk too much when you’re trying to mingle with them.
- Do not be too intimate around the family
You are deeply attracted to each other but it will be best if you don’t show off your love in front of the family. It is great when you hug and hold hands but do not do this in the presence of the family. This is because some families can be judgmental when it comes to public display of affection.
- Sense the family’s vibe and act accordingly
Sense the family’s vibe and be socially smart. Are they a very cheerful family? Talk as you want. Are they the quiet type? Ensure that you meet up to their taste.
- Give compliments
People will always love those who compliment them. Talk about how her mum looks young and beautiful and how the food tastes good. This will earn you a lot of points.
- Choose the right kind of topics
Choose the topics you know that will be appropriate for the family. Do not discuss politics if you know that conflicts might arise.
Smiling gives you a feeling of confidence and it attracts the people around you in a good way. It also makes you look more handsome and composed.
I’m certain that following these tips will make you win the hearts of your parents at the very first meeting!
