How to Impress Your Fiancé’s Parents

Many brides-to-be worry a lot about meeting their fiancé’s parents; they all want to make a good impression and receive their in-law’s approval, love, and respect.

Here is how you can make a great impression on your fiancé’s parents:

  • Dress appropriately: Go for something classic and elegant, don’t overdress, or put on too much makeup.
  • Do your homework: Ask your fiancé about his parent’s likes and dislikes, so you can either do them or avoid them.
  • Bring a gift: If you’re visiting them at their house for the first time it is only polite for you to bring something with you. You can even take you fiancé shopping to ask him about his opinion; after all he knows them best. Make sure you don’t pick something too expensive or fancy, as you want something that is simple and thoughtful.
  • Let them lead the conversation: Once you are greeted, make sure they start the talking. Don’t be overfriendly or too restrained, try to relax and the conversation will flow.
  • Keep it private: You might know all your fiancé’s likes and dislikes, his favorite color and food, but don’t impose your knowledge on them because after all they are his parents, and they probably feel that no matter how well you know him, they are the ones who know him better.
