Are these sentences OK? We haven't officially met before. We haven't officially met earlier. We didn't get to officially meet before. We didn't get to officially meet earlier.

Hi Pelin, I'm not a language teacher, but as a native English speaker your second sentence sounds awkward. I would change it to "We didn't officially meet earlier". Perhaps this is because "earlier" is a more specific time than "before". "Earlier" makes it sound like you meant earlier that day, or earlier during that specific event. Again, I'm not a language teacher, so I can't share specific grammar rules. Your other sentences look great!
