LePetitJambon:  I wouldn’t. I think it only invites a lot of “why wasn’t I invited” type questions that are really uncomfortable to deal with. Personally, I’m not putting ANY information about our wedding on Facebook. The people who I want to know about it are invited, and everyone else will figure it out after the fact. I don’t really see the need to inform people who aren’t invited of the details of our wedding. But that’s just me.

No, it’s rude, unless you invited every single person on your friend list and your FI’s friend list to the event.

You say you only invited 30 people who are close friends or family — I imagine you have their phone numbers or email addresses to let them know of your date!

Are you doing save the dates? Put the address to your website on them. This is what we did.

I’d never dream of posting our wedding website on facebook.. I have people I’m not super closer to, and friends of friends on there. Also a few internet friends I’ve met along the way – so LOTS of people who aren’t invited to the wedding.

I definitely won’t be posting our website to Facebook… It’s for the invited guests only!  

I haven’t even mentioned the wedding on fb aside from changing my relationship starus to ‘engaged’

LePetitJambon:  Oh wow! Well, unless you would be okay with anyone and everyone on your facebook showing up to your wedding, I wouldn’t put the link on your facebook!

You could always make a private group and put the link/information to the website in there. And just invite people you plan to invite.

No one on Facebook who isn’t invited will need information about travel or lodging, and I definitely wouldn’t post your wedding website there.

Yes you post it but in a private group! You can creat a private group on facebook. Your wedding web site and updates will only show up on the walls of the people who are in your private group. Our family has a family reuinon being planned via face book, a surprise birthday party (Birthday cousin) has not been added to the group and a Sunny family vacations are constinly planned via facebook private groups. I have over 100 first cousin that live all over the world mostly Canada Private groups within facebook is very popular in my family

You can limit who can see every post you make on facebook. Just post it and make it visible only to people who are invited. Simple.

Don’t do it, you’re going to create WAY more problems for yourself. Even the language you use on your wedding website assumes that people reading it are invited. Honestly, I know you don’t mean it this way but if you post it you’re pretty much bragging about this awesome, exclusive party you’re throwing. Just as if you were throwing an amazing close knit Halloween party you wouldn’t post all the details on Facebook. If someone asks you on Facebook when you’re getting married, happily tell them the date and that’s it.

I see no point in this. Its bordering on tacky, no one cares about your wedding as much as you do.. especially people who aren’t actually invited.

Your Fiance wants to announce that you planned your wedding? That seems silly to me. If you posted about your engagement I am sure people can assume that the wedding plans are underway. After the wedding you can post some pictures. But the wedding website should be for wedding guests only. You can create a PRIVATE Facebook Event and invite the people to join who you have already invited to the wedding, that way you can share all of the details you want.
