I have lots of long distance friends and acquaintences that are linked on FB. Some are fully interested and excited about my wedding and my plans, and some could care less.
Most of my friends are already married and understand what it means to have a wedding. There is only one person, so far and to my knowlege, that assumed they were invited – and I’ve only met with them once!
I began having reservations about posting the wedding proccess on FB. Then I was like.. WTH? This is my life, i’m excited, and I want to post about it.
So, for all the sensitive people out there that don’t get invited to weddings but hear it on FB put your grown up pants on and quit your whining. Life goes on and all the bride wants is love & happiness.
Of course, if you have a legitimate reason for being hurt then i’m not referring to you.

I think you have to be more careful about it if you have distant family on FB who isn’t invited. I have a bunch of my mom’s aunts and uncles on there who I declined friend requests from a million times then finally gave up, and all of them post questions about the wedding constantly, ugh.

@Wonderstruck: This is true, and they have been sent courtesy invites. They’re all the way in Thailand. I haven’t had questions from any family members. Honestly, both families aren’t really into it. They’re happy for us, but not excited or anything. I’m okay with this – it’s less stress for me.

I totally agree with this. There are plenty of people who I know who have gotten married and I wasn’t invited and I don’t mind at all. But i love reading their updates and seeing their pictures. It doesn’t matter that I wasn’t part of their day. As OP said, people really do need to put their grown up pants on and just accept it.

i hate the “face book self inviters” too. i had some one actually e mail me after i posted about getting my first rsvp saying they havent gotten ther invite yet and maybe it got lost. i ignored the e mail but it was my moms friends from a looong time ago that i never liked and still dont. thankfully i have all my invites out so i cant invite anymore lol
