I think it will be fine.  Hopefully your Facebook friends will understand your situation, but I think that you phrased your response to their inquiries perfectly!  I think that even if word spreads a little bit, people will be understanding about why you waited when you decide to announce the news.

oh oh, I am sure the situation will be easy to put the fire out though with all the people trying to figure out. sure your waiting for the ring, but it doesnt mean you cant start planning – and h opefully people understand that.

and maybe let your photographer know any other details that they would like to discuss should be done over private message lol

Yeah, I would follow up with the photographer on how to correctly use FB.  I personally think that FB is the devil.  But we are all still on it.

Sounds like you handled it well! But I agree, better fololow up with the photog and let her know to keep things hush hush!

She’s obviously new to Facebook… everybody knows you don’t post anything on the wall until the relationship status has been changed!   I wouldn’t worry about it — most people probably didn’t see it and hopefully those who do now know will keep quiet until the big reveal!

Ha, ditto, she’ll learn FB Etiquette soon enough!

Sounds like you handled it well though. You could also say something like "of course we’re getting married SOMEday" so it’s not like a right away kinda thing. No big deal.

I think it sounds like you can keep this pretty contained.  If people ask you about it, you could jsut say that you’re doing some pre-planning, but don’t have anything official to announce yet.  I  know a lot of people look into booking vendors before they’re actually engaged.  We actually scouted locations a few weeks before we were official, because we knew we’d want to book immediately to get our first choice.

I love how he brought the Twilight book into it. It’s okay, as long as your friends don’t say anything. I guess you should have a little chat (facebook chat?) with your photographer and tell her it is NOT ok to post private information on your wall!

I agree! I think that only the people who actually said something to you are the ones who know. If you’ve asked them to keep it quiet, they will, and only the FB stalkers will see.

Definitely don’t worry and don’t let it ruin your FI’s dream proposal to you
