@Mrsdickinson:  wait, why did you post it? That just sounds like you were asking for feedback, both good and bad. I’m confused

@Mrsdickinson:  why did you post the table plan on facebook? i’m keeping that shit on LOCK. i know i have guests that would be like “why am i sitting with X at the back of the reception??”

ignore your friend, that’s what i’d do. if she won’t come to your wedding because she doesn’t want to be seated with XY and Z then she’s a pretty crappy friend.

Oh that’s just jerky. “Sorry you feel that way, you’ll be missed. If you change your mind, you’ll be welcome.”  aaand done 🙂

@Mrsdickinson:  Okay, two things… A) Why would you share that information on facebook?? and B) Screw what she thinks, do what you want. It’s your wedding.

That said… this is exactly why you don’t post those sorts of things on FB.

Yup, none of that type of info is going to be published for the masses to see.  And, what a shallow friend to say she won’t come because she doesn’t like where she’s sitting!

Just wanted to add though, that yeah, people are never happy with stuff like seating arrangments so never publish those on fb! That doesn’t make this “friend” less jerky though

Sorry but I also think it’s weird to post that.  Can’t you email it to the specific family members or something?  You’re pretty much asking for reactions of any sort.  Facebook does not equal private.

And this may not be a popular opinion, but I think it SUCKS BALLS to go to a wedding where you’ll have friends there, and then you get stuck sitting with people you don’t know because the bride wants everyone to be social.  Let me catch up with my friends during dinner!  I’ll get drunk and mingle afterwards!

Nonetheless, that’s a shitty move of your friend to pull  :/

I would recommend that you delete that post immediately, before you receive more negative feedback — including that from friends and family who were not even invited.

@Mrsdickinson:  You can post whatever you want on Facebook, but you have to realize that doing so invites commentary on what you post. If you post your table plan for your friends and family to see, then someone may take issue with where they are seated and contact you about it. I think stuff like that is probably best left to just a few people who are making the decisions to view.

@Mrsdickinson:  You can’t post it on Facebook because then you are inviting critique, which you’ve just experienced. There is absolutely no reason to post your seating arrangement unless you are asking for feedback. You got it from a “friend” that’s close enough to be counting among your “close friends and family”.
