    @Artificial-Sweetener:  I put a status up when my wedding was 1 year away. I put a status about going bridesmaid dress shopping, going to a wedding expo… and one black and white picture (so people could not see my color scheme) of the bridesmaids trying on dresses. But no actual details, I want that to be a surprise. I dont think it is as fun if everyone knows what will be there. I dont even share specific details about what everything will be like with many friends or family.

    @Artificial-Sweetener:  I shared some things here and there, but I’m also older so I didn’t grow up with social media.

    I have shared a few things; engagement, buying my dress and vents over crazy Chicago vendor pricing 🙂

    I really wanted to post that we booked the venue but I didn’t. Only thing wedding related that I have ever posted was my engagement ring the day we got engaged. I also asked people recently for photographer recommendations bc we are getting married in the county I grew up in but we live in another county closer to NYC And more expensive so I want local vendors since they will be close and probably less money. But in my status I wrote that I’m not trying to be one of those brides always posting wedding stuff but I need local vendor recommendations.

    I hate when people post stuff like nasty notes to guests and I think it’s rude to people not invited. I deleted a girl bc her bitching about her wedding was incredibly obnoxious and I’m not even friends w/ her in “real life” as I like to say. So I cannot imagine how her in laws feel about her.

    I posted a pic of us right after we got engaged, but absolutely nothing since then. I’m sure I’ll post some pics after the wedding.

    If I’m visiting my BM’s (they both live in a city several hours away from me) I might post a picture of us shopping or lunching or whatever. And I posted a picture of an extremely hideous wedding gown (imagine everything wrong with 80’s dresses) saying after a long search I had finally found my dress.

    Other than that, no, wedding details are for me and Fi. I have a cousin getting married soon, and his fiancee is constabtly posting pictures and updates about everything. We’ve all seen her hair and makeup trial, shoes, bridesmaid dresses, favours, silk bouquets,  centerpeices, flower girl dress etc etc. The ONLY thing she hasn’t posted a picture of is her dress, and that’s because it doesn’t fit her. 

    I really feel like people who post too many details ruin the surprises, and i kinda feel like they do it to make people who aren’t invited jealous.

    I put some stuff up here and there. I love social media, but I have a lot of people on my Facebook who weren’t invited, and I wanted those who were invited to be surprised. I didn’t want to hear opinions, either.

    I am a little sad to read wedding planning details from old friends whose weddings we haven’t been invited to, you know? So I’m a fan of privacy – we pretty much only posted about our engagement, and then changed our status to “Married” after the wedding.

    I’m afraid that anything I share will make it’s way back to my FI.

    I’ve shared bits and pieces with close friends and more with my immediate family and of course my bridesmaids as they’re all helping me! 🙂  I want it to be a surprise.  I’m also aware that friends of ours are getting married a few weeks before us, so I want to keep some ideas to myself 🙂
