My Maid/Matron of Honor posted a pic of me in a dress on FB when I was first trying them on. I was SO EFFING MAD.  Especially since it was the dress I ended up buying. WHO DOES THAT?  Nobody except the people I took dress shopping get to know what I will look like day-of!  I guess she thought it was just a fun, oh we’re dress shopping! Um, no.  Not acceptable.

I made her take it down, but she couldn’t delete it from her phone so it stayed up until she got home.  Two people commented before she took it down, so I know tons more saw it.  I actually just came across it again (a year later) saved in some weird way as a photo posted to my wall and had to delete it a second time.  However, it was in such a weird folder I doubt anyone saw it later.

Omg, that’s SO not okay for them to do that. I’d be PISSED. 

No, I didn’t post that stuff. Why would I want to spoil the surprise!?

Ugh that is atrocious. I wanted to put on our wedding website politely to not add any photos of the couple on media sites. But Fi says ‘u can’t tell ppl what they can and can’t do with their own camera.’  But I think psshht I sure can if its my wedding and its pics of me!

@MexiPino:  Yup, I have one I used for my engagement shoot, one for potential wedding bands, and one for tutorials for wedding details I’ve decided on like my hair and the ceremony. I love the secret boards, it’s so much easier to keep things organized on Pinterest than with bookmarks.

Nope! No way! Not even the reject dresses! Only a handful of people have seen me in MY dress, and I won’t even let Fiance see me in the REJECT dresses.

The ONLY time there will be pics of my dress on facebook is when we’re posting our WEDDING DAY pictures! Even my photog put in our contract that they will NOT post any pictures of my bridals on ANY social network or even use them to show potential clients until AFTER my wedding! (My photog is local and does business with lots of my guest list!)

What was she thinking. I have a  FB and IG no wedding dress photo is there i dont even have in my phone or computer only my Maid/Matron of Honor has the photo. 

@novacaineandlaughter: the secrect folder is one of my fav feature on Pintrest. That way my guest can also be surprise about what i got in store for them.

I have not posted my dress on facebook because I want it to be a surprise, too….hence why I love wedding bee because I can get it out if my system and post it here!!! I would be totally devasted if someone posted my dress on their Facebook. Who does that?!?! 

One of my semi-close friends posted practically every single detail of her wedding on her fb from her dress to her shoes (even all the 30 shoes she was trying to decide between), which I found really odd and annoying. Why would you want to reveal everything about your wedding before it happens? Too bad she didn’t know about the bee.

No way! I would never do that and that is the one thing I would not want on social media. I am also getting leery of pinning things I actually might do for my wedding on pinterest. I know it sounds greedy, but 2 people I know got engaged recently and I don’t want anything I love stolen. I actually quit following my friend’s wedding board because I just didn’t want to see her ideas.

Oh hellllllll no. I would be so upset with my mom/sister if they did that lol. I’m not showing anyone other than my mom, sister, and best friend my dress so I would not be okay if someone posted it on FB.

I did post pics of my dress on Facebook, only in an album visible to my mom and my Maid/Matron of Honor, so they could see some of the other dresses I have tried on. Both of them live a couple hours away and can’t make it to my appointments, but I needed their opinions. 🙂

I’d be pretty upset – it’s your dress and you get to decide when to reveal it to people.

I have facebook and my Fiance doesn’t, and miraculously somehow I’ve managed to keep any details that a wedding is even happening off FB. If someone did mention the wedding (let alone post pictures), I’d be messaging them to tell them to take the post down. (Until after it’s passed – then it’s fine)
