@kateisstoned:  No way! lol, I’d be very upset if someone had posted one of me on there, I don’t feel it is their right/decision to do so!

No, I never posted my dress on fb. I would be livid with my family or friends if they did that! Nothing regarding my wedding goes on fb. I posted that I found my dress and thanked all of those involved with helping me make the discussion, but that is as far as it goes. You have a right to be upset with their stupid choice to post your personal stuff.

No, I would not post a picture of my dress on social media sites pre-wedding, and I’d be pissed if someone else did!!

No, that was not ok, especially since they didn’t ask you! I have a personal blog, where I share lots of things about myself – and there’s a bunch of post about trying to find the dress. However, none of the actual dress. Fiance has seen it, so that’s not why – the reason is that I do want it to be a surprise for everyone else. Not so much “last months news”.

Absolutely not! I was the only one who had pictures of my dress, my bridal party only saw my dress on my wedding day. Not even my Maid/Matron of Honor. I would be very upset and I am sorry about this!

I use FB all the time and so do most of my friends, no way would I post a pic of my dress pre wedding though and I’d be really mad if anyone else did.

I do use pinterest a lot to gather ideas and some of my activity shows up on fb, I use secret boards for some stuff but I don’t mind if people see the pretty pictures as long as they don’t know my final choice, that said I made sure I blocked my fiance from being able to see my pinterest activity! I want to keep him guessing about the dress style 🙂

I posted pictures of dresses I tried on but didnt buy. Mostly because my dad and some friends that dont live close by wanted to see. I didnt post the dress that I bought though. And yes, I would be mad if someone did post a picture of it.

@kateisstoned:  OH EM GEE i would be so mad. i’d slap someone! that is so incredibly inappropriate, maybe i’m overreacting on your behalf, but that is one piece of clothing that is very personal and i definitely would not want on social media.

Nope! DH is on FB, but I didn’t post it anywhere-blog, online, WB, anywhere. I wanted guests & DH to be surprised. I’d be upset too.

@kateisstoned:  I posted pics of mine because most of my family and my two BMs are long distance.  Facebook just happens to be a really easy way for us to keep in touch (it bridges the distance).  I personally don’t care if people see me in my dress since I’ll have my hair and make-up done that day, and that will be enough of a surprise (I don’t wear make-up and I don’t own a hairbrush).

I would be very unhappy!  It’s kind of a known thing that the bride keeps her dress a quasi-secret.  Duh!  I can totally see some people doing this- they post all about their kids and relatives lives on their own Facebook page and I just don’t understand it…..

@kateisstoned:  I’m so sorry.  That’s so disrespectful.  I would be seriously pissed off too.  I have a facebook account but I’m very careful about what I post especially when it comes to personal stuff and work.  I tend to be a very private person.  I was worried about this for my wedding and that’s why I put a basic “no facebook re: wedding events and wedding photos” in the invitation.  It’s really sad that some people appear to have no personal/private filter between facebook and their private life.  Hopefully, when you talk to them, they will understand your view point, appologize, and never disrespect you and your FH like that again.

@kateisstoned:  My mom did the same thing!!

My DH was scrolling through facebook and said “whoa, I don’t think I’m supposed to see that!” Thankfully it wasn’t THE dress but another dress that she liked me in. I called her immediately and told her to take any and all photos of me in a wedding dress down. It was an honest and thoughtless mistake on her part but I was a bit irritated.
