I wouldn’t worry about it. They probably found a bunch of cute pictures of your Fi and wanted to share with family and friends. Not everyone is on FB and even if they see the pictures now, they will be happy to see them again at the wedding.

I don’t think its an attempt to sabotage your wedding photo display so just be happy they found hte pics for you!

I agree I wouldn’t worry about it. I think you are stressing over nothing.

I really wanted to upload the ones that I scanned to FB.  Its really not a big deal- she probably just liked them and uploaded them.

I would just use them anyway.  Maybe she was going through them (to give them to you) and just got all nostalgic and felt like sharing with her family and friends?

When I asked for pictures, my Mother-In-Law just gave me two albums and it worked out great.  His aunt had posted a couple on her fb beforehand, but they didn’t turn out to be pics that I used.  Hopefully she’ll give you an album with plenty of pics soon.

If not, you could always shoot her a short message – “I love all these pics – I can’t get over how cute ______ was!  Could you send me the rest in an email?  I’d love to surprise him with some of them!”

I agree with everyone above, she probably wasn’t thinking about the wedding. I’m sure everyone will enjoy seeing them again at the wedding.

Agreed with PP’s. She probably started going through the photos & decided to scan them real quick before giving them to you!

People upload these old school pictureso f themselves on fb all the time. Also the only people they are more apt to be surprise too are your family or people he met later in life. A great deal of his family probably remeber the time or seen the pictures previously. Don’t blow this into a bigger deal then it needs to be.

If you want to make a sideshow than why not just take the ones off fb? Maybe that’s exactly why his sister is uploading them?

There are so many things to worry about that this seems to be a minor issue. People procrastinate…especially when it comes to weddings…heck even us brides do!

@Earlybride:  They’re probably posting because you asked for them, and it’s the easiest way to get them to you.

I’m going to go to my FMIL’s house and get them myself! They would never do it if I just ask and luckily she lives in the same city as us. I think that’s rude of them if they knew you wanted to use them for the wedding! I’d nicely ask her to take them down.
