With so many people on facebook getting married, I am being berated by wedding related stuff everytime I log in! Its rather obnoxious now because a lot of it is asking on opions and giving details that I find inappropriate to ask of people who are not invited in the first place!
I’m still a waiting bee and I’m very happy for all these ladies, some of which I’ve shared some awesome times, but its aggrivating when I see such posts as:
“HELP! Does anyone(s) have a Saturday free to make favors?” or “Anybody want to tag along with me to my fitting?” and my personal favorites, which are links to their registries with the note of “I can’t wait to celebrate with all of you!” When I pointed this out to one of my “friends” she got all huffy with me stating she wasn’t made out of money so she couldn’t invite everyone, but she wanted everyone to feel included. *ARRG*
I think someone needs to get a patent on facebook bridal ediquette because otherwise I really may just lose it. Does anyone know if theres any such thing, maybe a place I can point them towards because I find their behavior rude and unnessesary!

I hear you, it gets annoying. But thank got for the “unsubscribe” option. There is really no etiquette when it comes to FB.

I write posts like that, oops. I just block posts that annoy me. 🙂

If there isn’t a rule book for facebook wedding etiquette….there should be! I know exactly what you mean, and I find to be incredibly obnoxious as well. Not to mention insensitive to the people whose faces they’re rubbing it in–who aren’t invited. Lol. The audacity of some people.

That is too much detail to share on Facebook! The most I will say is, “One month to the wedding!” or “Can’t wait for my bachelorette party!” But I never give away details of the wedding or ask random people to come to my dress fitting.

Yeah, I really try not to post too much about wedding stuff on FB. There are a LOT of people on there who are going to be really disappointed that they aren’t being invited, so I try to keep it to a minimum. I think I’ve only posted about the engagement, that we picked a date, and that I was going dress shopping.

I’m trying to keep all wedding stuff off facebook. But it is hard to do.

Wedding posts do not belong on facebook, unless the user has invited their entire ‘friend’ list to their wedding. The open requests for help with favors or ‘just leeting people know’ about registiries is astoundingly rude and inappropriate.

@hottlips: you can be my FB friend, I promise, no wedding updates from me. I don’t even have a relationship status….
But I only log in about once a month, and I don’t think I’ve ever had a status update… and I’m one of those FB grumps who unsubscribes first, but if you still bug me with your random “pokes” and things that send me email notifications I’ll eventually just unfriend you.
So actually, maybe you don’t want to be FB friends with me. 😉 – See it could be worse. You could be stuck with boring people like me!
Yes, I can understand why you are annoyed. Maybe take some time away from FB (or those friends) and enjoy all that you have going on in your life?

Haha I am guilty of asking if anyone could come with me to my fitting … only because I was DESPERATE! As it turned out, an old friend I hadn’t seen or spoken to in ages decided it would be a great opportunity to catch up, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves as we giggled in the fitting room trying to get the back of the dress done up 🙂

I can’t believe people would make posts like that. I bet no one went to her fitting or helped with favors! People need to be more independant and realize no one cares.. I personally would have to block their nonsense. (Sorry I have zero tolerance for that type of crap on my news feed)

- Wedding: July 2012 - Baltimore Museum of Industry
Since we were engaged in January, I’ve posted only two-wedding related comments on FB. Quickest way to get people to block your feed- overrun it with wedding or baby talk, or politics.

OK, so we wanted everyone to feel included by posting her registry? You can’t come, but you can buy me something!!
I’m going to wedding in November. Bride posted their registry (and updates!) on facebook. I’m so buying off registry.

I feel the same way. Whenever one of my friends brings up my wedding in front of someone who isn’t on the guest list, I cringe and try to change the subject ASAP. I think the same etiquette should apply on Facebook.
This one girl I know posted about her invitations arriving and blah, blah, blah, and I was just thinking, “Lovely, now people can feel like they’re on a count down as to finding out whether they’re invited to your wedding that you keep blabbering about.”

Since I know I’m inviting like 5% of my FB friends list (if that), I make it a point NOT to post about the wedding. I posted one picture of the venue without any description so people who already knew about it “got it”. Oh, and we changed our relationship status to “engaged”. Other than that, nothing has been posted and no one invited has (so far) posted anything about being invited.
