Here’s a vote for get off facebook, take yourself off, talk and stay in touch with those who matter in real life and I assure you, you will never have to worry about a facebook post, newsfeed or anything else ever again.  Lol….very simple.

I definitely think it’s poor taste to post all the time about wedding preparations on FB. I think I posted maybe twice, and then I hid it from anyone who wasn’t going to be invited. Just awkward otherwise.

That said, I wouldn’t comment on someone who did. I’d skim over it or hide it altogether. And i certainly wouldn’t put a military couple down for legally getting hitched ahead of time, having considered it myself for immigration ease.

I just skim over them. Yesterday I posted that we had booked the church and reception but that will probably be all I post.

Eh, I get your annoyance. I know people who did post daily or multiple times a day (yes, a countdown as well). After seeing a friend’s daily posts about her wedding, I vowed to NOT do what she did. Every now and then I might make mention of something, but for the most part I’ve been good to not update more than once every few weeks. The only people coming to our wedding who are my friends on FB are wedding party peeps + family, so basically a good 90% of my friends on FB aren’t coming to my wedding. Do I think it’s rude to discuss your wedding on social media? Not really.

As for snarky comments… just don’t. Press hide, unfollow, remove from newsfeed, or just unfriend all together. I hid many of friend mentioned above’s posts.

Starshollow:  I was going to suggest cutting her a little slack until I got to the part about their already being married.  Yeah, carrying on like that when you’ve already had your wedding is a bit much.

Its a peeve of mine that people have somehow managed to convince themselves that a wedding is a completely separate thing from getting married.  When someone gets married, that IS their wedding.

LadyMoriarty:  Facebook is a nice way to share news and keep in touch.

Its also a dream come true for self-involved people and braggarts. When communicating, it’s always good idea to consider your audience and not bore them or make yourself look foolish.

Starshollow:  The losing a bridesmaid to drama one’s a bit too far. But like everyone said, hide her posts till she’s “Married” (again?) and they won’t be there to bug you! I agree it’s a vow renewal, seems like she maybe didn’t realise the significance of getting married the year before? I haven’t posted much, if anything about our wedding on facebook… and I only have 20 peopl on facebook (by choice… I had 300 odd at one point and every so often I do a cull so nowadays my fb is a very select few) and odds are almost all of them are wedding guests. I still wanted everything a surprise and special on the big day so I wasn’t posting bridesmaid dresses or centerpieces all over the place.

Ahhh its her big day so be it a vow renewal or wedding reception, it is HER day and she can call it whatever she wants. why in heavens name would you want to reply her post and rain on her parade. i dont get that @ all, just hide her from your newsfeed and move on, there are bigger issues in life than what someone is posting on THEIR OWN facebook page 

Now she had posted a Game of Throne spolier that would be RUDE!!!!!!! and i would definitely create a topic on the bee, so other bees can help me validate how rude that is LOL.  have a Happy sunday everyone 🙂

Starshollow:  I agree with you 100% about all the facrebook posts. They are obnoxious and rude (especially the bit about the bridesmaid drama). But I have to defend the military part. Since you are not military you obviously don’t know how truly difficult it can be for a couple to plan an actual wedding. My husband and I know several other married couples who have only had civil ceremony. Out of all of the couples I know I can only think of three (including us) who have actually pulled off a wedding. Even though mine was more like a “vow renewal” as you call it Since it was after we actually did get married (he was deploying so we did not have time to plan a large wedding). Just because we were already married at the time doesn’t make the planning process any easier. We still have to deal with all the drama of a normal wedding. And to be honest it does feel more “official” because all your friends and family who didn’t come to the civil ceremony are there to celebrate with you.

There’s like this weird competetion here on who can post the least amount of info on FB

I don’t post wedding stuff

I never post statuses

I never posted I was engaged

People porbably don’t even know I am engaged, never changed my relationship status

I could be dead for all anyone knows so I am so perfect as to never post anything personal ( just kidding, but ykwim)

Seriously. What is the point in FB if you do not talk, post or allow commentary about your life? That’s the whole point of it. Get off FB if you can’t handle people talking on their OWN PAGE about their life which is the entire concept of FB.
