Here is another thread that asked the same question: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/why-block-out-your-face-in-the-photos

Here is my answer to that post:

Some people don’t want to be able to be identified in their actual lives. Weddingbee is huge and if someone Googles for something wedding related it is likely a Weddingbee post will pop up.

A lot of women post stuff about their wedding before it has happened (favors, food, etc) and would like it to remain a surprise for their guests. Others come on here to vent about a specific person. Since weddingbee links all your posts in your profile, it wouldn’t take long for someone to recognize your picture and be able to read all your posts.

Other women just like being super cautious about keeping their online identity anonymous.

I think some people are protecting their privacy by doing that.

I can’t speak for everyone but for me it would not to reveal my identity. Many times I post personal problems, rants, vents or share intimate details on WB. I wouldn’t want to bump into someone I was ranting about here (relationship, job whatever) and make it possible to match a name to a face.

Also, it’s super easy for someone to copy and paste your picture into something else- even if it is as harmless as someone looking for what a real person looks like in a dress- you can’t control where your picture will end up.

yea waaay too easy for people to copy/paste (even with right-click protection–ever heard of a print-screen button?).

to the OP:

I think a lot of it has to do with privacy issues, I know that’s what does it or me. Also, alot of the time, the person isn’t the pertinent information, it’s more like what dress, what hair, what body type, etc etc, not ‘omg show me your DNA via your FACE!’ hah (yes, I am strange).
