bellenola:  I’m pretty sure you already know what others’ opinions are going to be. Consider yourself validated.

It’s extremely inappropriate to post the invitation and remind those who were not invited that they won’t be seeing one in person.

Definitely inappropriate and bad etiquette. I feel bad for the others not invited. 

Maybe since you work so closely with her that you can express your concern. Tell her you saw it on there and that maybe she might not want to have that on there as it might end up hurting others feelings that are not invited and makes her look insensitive.

bellenola:  not only is it inappropriate, in my opinion I think it’s really tacky as is having the save the date as her profile picture. I know people can get overly excited about getting married but to shove it in everyone’s face all the time is very self absorbed

Honestly, yes, it’s obviously rude. But at the same time. I don’t care if I see someone has done that. I understand being excited about your wedding and gorgeous invitations, and I also understand that guest lists end up being dictated more by budget than anything else so…whatever. I don’t take it personally if I’m not invited to a wedding. And honestly, people are obviously aware there’s a wedding, obviously aware that there’s invitations, and if they’re not invited, they’re going to be aware they’re not invited.

It’s Facebook… Who cares? I see this all the time and have never thought “omg I can’t believe I wasn’t invited.” People are going to find out at some point that they are not invited so I think it’s silly to get upset about seeing the invite on Facebook.

I think everyone should stop taking Facebook so seriously.

I think that people on Facebook ought to wake up to the fact that the things they say and post don’t disappear into a black hole. There is an actual, you know, audience?

I do agree that it’s gauche, but it’s nothing to get offended over, even if someone wasn’t invited.

Definitly not the smartest, or most considerate idea in the world, but their is the other potential problem of people seeing it and then showing up even if they never official got an invite. It has happened before…

sharksgrl99:  I didn’t post anything except my wedding invite, and actually just a picture of the front, because I drew it myself… I also do not have thousands of facebook friends. I have minimal friends of facebook, so whatever. Bad Ettiquette maybe but I think we all slip up somewhere.
