@goingtotherooftopoflove:  I totally feel that. I posted little notes about being on time in a few different places on our website, reminded people that it can be hard to park nearby, and phrased my invitations as “begin gathering at” 15 minutes before our start time. PUNCTUALITY RULES!! 😛

For some bees, anything short of a letterpress note thoughtfully tucked into a contrast lined envelope with at least 3 inserts and delivered via trained dove is tacky and looks cheap.

If it’s a status update that all 5,482 “best friends” will see, then yeah it’s inappropriate.  If it’s a group message to only those invited, I don’t see a problem. Most people are on Facebook regularly, and it’s the fastest way to disseminate information. Social media is here for the long haul, so we might as well learn to use it in an acceptable manner. Their wedding is next month.  She could either send new announcements to everyone telling them where the new location is, and hope everyone gets the announcement and reads it; or send an update electronically and know they saw it.

Wow.  I actually find some of the comments regarding etiquette, and those of us who choose to follow it, to be very rude.  I don’t go out of my way to call people who don’t follow etiquette rude, even though it is (etiquette is accepted practices designed to make guests comfortable) – I don’t really get why it’s okay to have open season on people who follow these guidelines and rules.  ANYWAY…

Personally, as someone who really follows etiquette, I don’t find the Facebook messages incredible rude, unless they blast-posted everyone that they’re “friends” with.  It’s not what I would have done, but it’s also not the worst thing in the world.  It was an uncomfortable situation, I’m sure, and this was the way they saw to do it best.  It wasn’t as old-fashioned as calling each guest individually, but at least they took the time to make sure their guests received the message (and by requiring the response, they did ensure that the message was received).
