NigerianHair:  Depends on how you asked her to take it down. Perhaps she’s just excited for you guys?

I must admit I’m a little confused on how you call a BM who has done one thing (put your website up) as a BM that ‘does too much’? If that’s the only hiccup you have with your BMs, you are one lucky gal.

If it makes you feel any better similar thing happened to me. My wedding pictures were posted on Facebook by my best friend. I just asked her to take them down. They were private and I too am private about my photos. People forget that not everyone details their lives on fb. Sorry it happened but at least it was sorted quickly. Remember, no one cares as much as you. Its the blink of an eye to the rest of the world watching. Try not to stress about it, sweetie. Good God, I hate Facebook! Ha

I think you’re overreacting. I’m a private person too and I would also be annoyed with the FB post, but in her defense, she was probably just so excited and happy for you. So yes, she did mess up, but it wasn’t intentional.

You’re over-reacting. I would assume that a couple who had a wedding website would be embracing their online presence rather than trying to shut it down. She’s excited for you, I don’t see how she’s ‘doing too much’.

I understand.  I get the desire for unplugged ceremonies, and not sharing one’s life on FB, though I’m pretty sure I’m in the minority on this.  I do wish that people would think more about whether it’s their news to share before they post something on social media, and if they aren’t sure … then the answer is don’t post.  Most seem to have the default the other way – anything is fair game for posting unless explicitly told no, and then they may cop an attitude about ‘I can do what I want, you can’t tell me not to do something,” and post it anyway.  

You have my sympathy, maybe you just need to remind them more strongly that you want to control the news flow about your event.
