    I think that will ruin the surprise for a lot of your guests (and possibly husband), if they’re as into social media as you are. Don’t you want the first time your guests see you be when you walk down the isle? Not on some mediocre iphone photo they saw on facebook? Just a thought.

    @Asichka:  I certainly wouldn’t, but I get the no photos before me thing.

    Im having an unplugged wedding, and also spreading by WOM that it’s not okay to post any photos to facebook. Reception photos of you and Aunt Mavis? Sure. Photo of us dancing? No. Hell to the no. They are my special moments to share, and I will when we have professional photos back after our honeymoon.

    I would have chosen a few answers if possible; it will ruin it for anyone on facebook; it will look kinda tacky; you wont want to be doing that right before you walk – you should be thinking of your husband at the end of the aisle; why ruin the gorgeous professional photos with a pic taken on someones phone just before your wedding? I see a lot of bees who are so amped to see and share their gorgeous photos after the day, its something to look forward to and be excited for. 🙂

    Personally I feel that if you have no problem with facebook then who cares who posts a picture first? In the grand scheme of things it seems like a pretty trival thing to be worrying about.

    I just turned my tagging off so anything my guests posted wouldn’t be on my friends’ newsfeed or show up on my page.

    Here’s my suggestions (without having read the updates/other posts):

    (1) Approach your friend and tell her your concerns.  A good friend will not go against your wishes, especially on your wedding day, and will refrain from posting photos that insant.

    (2) There are profile settings where you have to approve every post that goes on your wall — use that, so nothing shows up even if she posts them.

    (3) I really doubt your FI will be browsing Facebook right before the wedding.

    To be honest, I don’t think it really matters if someone posts a picture before you. Believe me, you will have way more important things on your mind the day of.

    Why does it matter if someone posts a picture of you in your dress before you do? In fact, it almost makes more sense that someone would post it before you…

    I honestly doubt you’ll actually care on your wedding day. There are so many other things to be thinking about.
