    hmmm… interest and I think a good idea.  I am interested as to why others might not think it is great.  Maybe I am not thinking of something that could go wrong.

    If you are careful to only have people involved with the wedding I think it is a great way to track everything and share all your fun details.

    Maybe I am missing something though??

    I have a wedding group…it’s a place to put info on wedding updates/party dates/important dates for the bridal party….

    I also will use it to put information on things I want to do/make for our wedding….

    It works well, and so far no one has complained to me about it….but it IS private….

    I think it would work but I would set it up as a group. It’s nice to have a page, but the whole privacy issue is kinda wonky now on Facebook. 

    I set up a group for my bridesmaids and I to discuss ideas, dresses, etc. You can post pics, set up polls, etc so not as amazing as say a “Page” but it gets the job done. Also – it’s very specific to those 4 ladies and myself. We also set one up for the whole bridal party so we can keep communication flowing. 🙂 If you want to post all your details however, I would suggest maybe a free wedding website. 

    Also – my concern would be if you are not inviting everyone on FB to your wedding, would some people get annoyed with all the updates of small details?

    I don’t think it’s a terrible idea but I think the customizations that can be done on a normal website are better. I’m not a designer but luckily my fiance is and is in charge of our website.

    We have an actual wedding website and then a little later(most of our guests are on facebook too) we creeated a facebook invite only event, that way only those invited have access to the info and other people who weren’t invited wont feel left out.

    We felt it was a good idea since most of our friends regularily check FB but we know dont regularily check our wedding site. It is/was just meant for quick updates or reminders etc.

    I facebook page is okay as long as you can limit who sees it 🙂

    I set up a ‘secret group’ for myself, my mom and my bridesmaids since we are scattered around the state. that way we can all stay updated on DIY projects, events, planning etc…

    I think what you do is fine, as long as the info stays with only those its intented for, that way anyone not invited doesn’t accidentally see something and think its intended for them

    I did it. I even had separate groups for different people (me, my mum and my bridesmaids; the whole wedding party; day guests and evening guests). People loved it. It allowed them to find lift-shares, ask questions about what was going on and generally get engaged before the wedding.

    I voted get rid of it because I didn’t think you could get any privacy and I thought that would cause unwanted problems for your guest list. if you can do it with a decent level of privacy, have at it.
