What should a gal wear to meet the guy’s family, especially the mother? The answer is put the shoe on the other foot. What will a gal expect a brother’s girlfriend to be like on the first meeting? Then you should act and dress accordingly to those expectations. According to SG’s survey, these are almost the universal rules:
1. Do not wear expansive logo bags or shoes or clothing so a gal won’t project a materialistic image.
2. But, wear nice classical pieces to show a gal has great taste and class. SG’s personal picks will be Tod’s shoes and bags.
3. Dress more like Audrey Hepburn than Betty Boops.
4.Be friendly but listen rather than talking to learn and information gather.
5. Dress event appropriate. If the event is a BBQ party, don’t wear a cocktail dress. Instead a nice top and tailor jeans will suffice.
6. Bring a nice hostess gift if going to someone’s home to show a gal’s considerate side.
7. Lastly, be yourself and have fun!
So, what are other tips for meeting the family for the first time and what is your personal experience?
