This is sort of spin-offy but I saw another bee post about how she put up some decor pics on facebook about her wedding and then the idea was stolen… Made me wonder, how often does the average bee post on facebook about her wedding/ fiance? Personally, I’ve 1. changed my status to engaged 2. posted 2 pics from our engagement party 3. wrote about how excited I was for my mom to arrive for dress shopping 4. thanked people for my amazing shower. These 4 posts occurred over the course of the last 5 months. I have never posted the term “My fiance” in a status….
Things that I think count:
-Using the term fiance instead of calling your FI by name
-Any mention of wedding planning/events
-countdowns to wedding
-pictures of the ring
-statuses where you call someone by their title instead of their name “My maid of honor!” etc

I never posted antyhing about the wedding really. Just a photo of us the night we got engaged, I never posted about finding decor, or things like that. I just didn’t think anyone else really cared, because they don’t!

i have made two wedding related posts. the first was a status about getting engaged. i think it was just like ‘____ is getting a new last name”. no ring pic or anything. the second was just thanking my friends and family for the shower. thattttt’s it. posting too much info is weird to me, regardless of the topic.

@Andthepupmakes3: All I’ve done is casually referred to my FI as my FI in one comment on my profile picture, after another close friend mentioned my ring – which is visible in the picture, but not featured. I also posted a cute picture of us from our engagement photos as my cover photo, but I didn’t label it as an engagement photo or anything like that… for all you know, it might just be a cute picture of the two of us.
We’ve been dating for years and we never bothered to make it “facebook official”… it’s just not important to either of us, and in fact it weirds me out a little bit sharing that information with Facebook. So no, I haven’t even set my status as engaged. And I never posted a picture of my ring.
Overall, FI and I are pretty private people. Additionally, I want to avoid any talk of my wedding popping up on Facebook, considering our very limited guest list.

@calisunshine3404: That’s so funny! Only a month ago! I even considered searching for this topic before posting, but since the search function on this site is the.worst. I decided to skip it and just post LOL

1- The ring when we got engaged (and changed status to “engaged”)—-8/12
2- When we got our first RSVP back
3- The day after the wedding, I posted that the wedding was wonderful and we were so thankful to everyone that came and all the family who supported us!

@Andthepupmakes3: No totally! I do the same thing!! It’s just too hard to search sometimes. Also, I find that opinions change relatively quickly (especially in regard to anything technology-related), so it’s nice to bring it back up again! 🙂

I made a post with the engagement ring, and that will be it. I’ll post some pictures of the wedding probably. I don’t make status updates. I think I’ve made one (besides the engagement) since joining facebook.

Nothing at all. I didn’t even change my status when we got engaged, mostly because I don’t like people knowing my business.

I personally I get annoyed with seeing “My fiance” this or that, or to see post regarding wedding planning, it’s like … So I basically know exactly how your wedding will be, there’s no loger that element of suprise or of looking forward to it because you have given away most of the details. It’s like the mom’s who post non stop babie pictures… yes he/she are very cute and adorable, but please that’s not all I want to see when I log on on my newsfeed.

@Andthepupmakes3: I posted about getting engaged. Shared a funny conversation my cousin and I had about dresses, talked about “engagement season” and how five couples I know have gotten engaged since late November and I just now shared an Offbeat Bride post about silly engagement pics. That last one is just bc it’s hard to share a link on someone’s wall on my iPhone so I posted it on my own status and tagged my recently engaged cousin.

@Andthepupmakes3: uh, I’m somewhere in the middle of 1 and 2. I updated my relationship status, wrote thank you post to all the people congratulating us, mentioned dress shopping once. However, Mr. S refers to me as Fiance is his posts and I get tagged. lol – he’s excited. My photographer tagged us in a couple of engagement photo previews. And a bridesmaid tagged me in a thing about dress shopping and the after-lunch/drinks.
If you post decor on FB, people are going to see it and it may suit someone else and they’ll use it. No different than pinterest in that respect. I wouldn’t ever post that stuff not only to potentially have someone else use it, but because not everyone I’m friends with is invited, and I want our wedding to be a surprise for those that are.
