It's an interracial relationship. We love each other and get along great but are from two different worlds. His family is upper class while mine is low low middle class. I am kinda scared of introducing him to my family. I am scared he is going to think I am trash. I mean he knows my upbringing but still I am scared.
I managed to move away , go to college, get a great job And I am nothing like how I was raised. I have learned new things in life and changed. My family isn't close emotionally or physically so it really doesn't bother me. They are 5 hours away.
Is it weird I don't want him to meet them until the wedding? I just don't want drama. I am hoping everyone just eats, has fun, and then leaves. Lol

That's normal anxiety over it. Talk to him about it and explain how you feel. He may put your mind at ease (otherwise he may think it's because of him, not your family). I think most people feel that way until it happens. If they're going to meet him anyway regardless I'd just get it over with. Then it's not going to bother you anymore (and especially on your wedding day when you have so much going on also - you don't need that on your mind as well). Chances are it will go much better then you fear.0

of course it makes totally sense to leave the first meeting to be happening at the wedding... NOT!
you'll have enough going on on that day to be worrying about that too
you are setting yourself up for many many unconfortable moments if you do that. Are you going to be hovering over them so they don't come into "contact" with all the fancy folk?
na man, why not introduce him now? he is marrying you, not your family. Or are you afraid he will leave you because your family is low class? I HOPE he is not that superficial, if so, overthink your relationship.0
