You can change your privacy settings so that your aunt can’t see your posts, and then you don’t have to worry about it.

Also, be careful about FB wedding posting, because  you may end up with fb friends expecting to be invited when they aren’t.

I wouldn’t say anything to your aunt…just quietly stop talking to her about the wedding.

I think your best bet is to just ignore her. Thank her for her concern, if you like, but you are totally allowed to be excited about your wedding. Maybe she’s jealous?

sounds like she’s a little jealous…

does she have a daughter? if she doesn’t, she might be wishing she was more invovled, actually.

She’s probably just concerned that you’ll become a bit self-centered and lose perspective of what’s important in life.

Sometimes I think older generations don’t really “get” facebook and other social media sites because you’re just posting a fun message about your wedding (which you’re totally allowed to be excited for!) and she doesn’t get it that not only is it socially rude to post a negative comment on every post but what you post isn’t what you live and die by, it’s just a post.

I would delete her and the comments! But then again I am pretty harsh. You have all the right to be excited about planning and feel free to share it on YOUR facebook. She needs to back off, people like that piss me off. I hate when people are so opinionated about other peoples’ lives.

Personally I dont post wedding stuff on facebook.. but if its important to you to do so then either ignore her comments or edit your privacy settings so she cant see them. I dont think she intends to be mean spirited. Older people can be odd sometimes

Ignore them. And block her ability to see them.
