I actually screamed out loud when I got on line.
i logged on to FB to be greeted by these:
Why, Why, WHY would my mother do that? Luckily, none of them are my dress so I didn’t go COMPLETELY ballistic. I am normally very easy going, but this isn’t ok! Why wouldn’t my mother know that this is a major NO-NO!!! I am still very pissed. My mother didn’t mean any harm, and God bless her for not having any clue about ANYTHING that is appropriate…I could never be confrotational with her of course, but I was not happy about this AT ALL. Thank GOD my fiance isn’t on FB… Am I over reacting?

Oh my, I would be upset, too! At least she didn’t post any in your actual dress. I could see my mom doing something like that and not even realizing it was a big deal because she doesn’t completely understand the publicness of FB. Can you ask her nicely to take them down because you want to keep that private?

@Bellagiobride: I don’t think you’re over-reacting, but I do think she’s excited. I’m glad she didn’t post your dress on there though.

I would be very upset also. If you know she is an avid Fber you should speciafically tell her whether or not a picture(s) she takes is ok to publish. I’ve done this with my niece. She LOVEs my twin boys so when I take special photos of them, for example for christmas, she is one of the few who sees them before anyone else. I specifically let her know not to post them until I say it’s ok (in this case, after everyone received their xmas cards).

oh my, I would not be happy either, call her right away, tell her they must come down!! Tell her she can post lots of pics of you in your wedding dress after the wedding 🙂

In her mind, I think all your mom did was want to show off her beautiful daughter-and you are very beautiful in that dress! so, you can’t really fault her for that. But you are right, it was inappropropriate. I would just nicely ask her to take the pics down, and just chalk it up to a motherly booboo on her part.
btw, even though that is not your dress, you rock the hell out of it!

I would feel the same way and call her immediately to politely ask her to remove them!

@Bellagiobride: LOL! That is so something my mom would do not thinking… Note to self… Don’t let mom take pics on her cell… Totally off topic has anyone ever told you you kind of look like Flo from SYTTD Atlanta?!

Tell her to take them down! She probably wasn’t thinking, just full of excitement. Your FI didn’t see them, so you’re good!!

First, let me say, you look beautiful in all of those dresses!
But I would freak out too. I had bought a dress and had regrets (because I brought a large group with me and listened to their opinions and ended up picking something that wasn’t me) Many of the people I was with snapped pictures with their phones. I felt like I made a huge mistake and went back with just my mom and got my dream dress.
When I told one of the people who was with me the first time around that I changed the dress, she said, “whyy??? I showed it to (insert 3 dozen people) and they all loved it!!!” I almost had a heart attack and was so glad I ordered a different dress because I couldn’t ask this person not to send pictures of my dress around.
But since this your mother, you definitely can something. I would (nicely) ask her not to share your actual dress with anyone. But I’m sure she’s just really excited and super proud her daughter is getting married. 🙂

My mom put my actual dress on fb! I freaked out! She said it was an accident (I believe her…she is terrible with technology), but seriously?!? I feel your pain!

Lol, this is totally something my mom would do.

I don’t know…I would flip. But that’s just me. I posted a status once about my BM dresses and deleted it right away.
