He's meeting the parents -- ADVICE!

I have a huge celebration coming up at the end of March--I'm getting my university ring. At my university, this is a much bigger deal than actual graduation for most students. I've planned a big get together with alcohol and we will probably end up partying in the bars all night--fun stuff. My parents and all three of my sisters with their husbands will be there, as well as my closest friends. I have invited my boyfriend (we've been dating for a little over a month) to come, and although he hasn't accepted the invitation via facebook he has mentioned to me that he will be there... saying something like, "meeting the parents is always awkward. When I meet a girlfriends parents, I just think to myself, 'I've _____ed your daughter', and it's just awkward". So, he's established that he WILL be there, which I'm happy about.
Since this is really just a big party, and nothing too formal or serious, should I be worried about him meeting my parents? Is there anything I should try to do to make it less awkward? My parents are pretty traditional (no sex before marriage, etc.), but my boyfriend will probably wind up drunk like the rest of us and need to stay at my house--should I warn my parents of this before?
