I know exactly how you feel! We had a few people do the same "YAY got the save the date cannot wait!!" but I really didnt want that posted on facebook because I am "friends" with so many people that aren’t invited to the wedding. I’d just get on there as soon as possible, delete it, and send her a PM later.  I know exactly how you’re feeling so don’t feel too silly!

Oh no! That’s unfortunate!!! Most of the tme, people are just so excited for you that they don’t think that they’re posting on a semi-public forum. PM her, and she should be able to delete her own comment hopefully before too many people see it!

Yikes! I hadn’t even thought of this happening. I think I’d follow HumarockBride’s suggestion to just delete it write a way and pm her.

LOL – Ive had the same thing happen to me especially with people’s older kids that are on facebook and my friends, but we are sending invites to the parents and no kids allowed. They have asked me about the wedding and obviously Ill tell them but I always mention its a small wedding & adult reception.

My sister recently posted my wedding date in a FB status & there are several people I dont want knowing any info about my wedding whatsoever. Our site is private for that reason – but it’s on there – so any stalker people might have come across it to – yet another dilema us brides face in the wake of FB! LOL.

Good luck – just read up all the board post stating how to tell non-invite people they arent invited. I reccently had to go through it in person (a friend asked about the wedding & someone non-invited was at the table) Awkward moment.

Oh no! That sucks! I think all us Facebookers should take note of this and maybe adjust our privacy settings and who can see our wall postings once it’s time for the STDs to go out. I sure will because I’ll totally be in the same predicament if I don’t. Hopefully you deleted it fast enough that nobody saw it.

It’s not silly! I’m a good ways from sending out SaveTheDates and I already have the same fears! Especially with co-workers I am inviting talking about it at work and making others -unintentionally- feel bad about not getting an invite! I think I’ll just be casually mentioning to everyone to not make it a big deal in public that they got an invite….

I’m worried about that too because I want nothing about my wedding on facebook–including pictures. I know that’s extreme but that’s me. I’ll end up telling most of our friends not to post stuff on facebook but the other guests, well I guess there’s nothing I can do.

Oh that would totally bug me! Another reason why Facebook drives me nuts.

Can you call your friend and have her delete her comment??  I am sure she’ll understand!

That sucks.  I was worried about that happening so I made sure I send them all out at the same time. I hope she deletes her comment.

That’s troublesome, but honestly, I don’t think EVERYONE you are friends with on a social networking site should expect to be invited to these types of things, just like every co-worker shouldn’t.  So I wouldn’t worry too much about it.
