You are engaged!!! He popped the big question and you said yes!!!! Which set of parents do you tell first? I get asked this question a few times especially from engaged couples who don’t live in the same country or their parents are in different locales. Typically the brides parents are told first with the grooms parents being told very soon afterwards.
After everyone is told the grooms parents should contact the brides parents whether through a phone call or email. If the brides parents are divorced, the parent that raised the bride should be contacted and then a call to the other parent only if the bride and that parent still have a close relationship.
