I’m on facebook all the time and I’m always updating my status. Right now, being 5 weeks away from my wedding, my statuses are wedding related 50% of the time.
I know it will hurt me once I get people asking me if they are invited but I haven’t really gotten any of those yet.
I think the reason I do it is because a majority of my friends are married already or are planning a wedding and we kind of bounce ideas of each other and also give support to fellow brides.
Does anyone else do this?

I don’t really talk on Facebook or Twitter about wedding planning. Mainly because I think it’s sort of boring for people who don’t care, and also, I think it’s rude to talk to people about a party to which they are not invited.

I don’t put anything about the wedding on FB since we are having such a small wedding and I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings that aren’t invited. I also figure no one really cares anyways so I just keep it on here where I know there will be other girls who share my obsession.

I don’t discuss even the fact that I will be getting married in December on FB. My status is “Engaged” but other than that I haven’t mentioned weddings at all. I will post an announcement on FB and upload the actual announcement so that those who won’t receive one in the mail can see it…but that’s about it.

short answer, not at all. That said, I don’t update my FB status that often anyhow.
I agree with PinkSuperhero in that because alot of our “friends” won’t be invited to the wedding, i don’t want to comment about it. I did change my status to “engaged” though!

No. Nobody likes a wedding obsessed bride. Plus, if you invite 572 of your closest facebook friends into the planning process, it is sort of rude when the all realize they aren’t invited to wedding.

I don’t understand Twitter…at all. No offense to anyone who Tweets, but I don’t think my daily ins and outs are that important..not even to myself! lol
I do, on the other hand update my FB status, but nothing wedding related. It could be that I’m pretty far out from the date, but I tend not to talk about wedding stuff unless someone asks me.

I haven’t even updated my FB status to engaged yet – originally it was because I wanted to personally tell people I was engaged. I didn’t want to let people know via FB. I think closer to the wedding, I might put a status update or two about it – but I definitely will resist at all counts. That’s why WB is a great outlet for wanting to chat about wedding stuff (and has awesome bee’s who WANT to hear) vs. friends that may not necessarily want to hear or really understand about the joy and pain of planning.

I don’t mention wedding planning on FB, unless someone specifically asks “How’s the planning going?” but I just answer that’s it’s going well. I think it’s the same as talking about a party that their not invited to. We are having a small wedding so it’s tough already w/o any FB nightmares!

Sometimes I do. Like I’ll say stuff like, “wedding + budget does NOT belong in the same sentence” or “wooohoo exciting day of wedding planning!” Nothing specific or too braggy though. I mean people know I’m getting married and I think my FB friends know if they’re invited or not.

Sometimes!! I don’t see anything wrong with talking about it. Trust me, my high school biology teacher’s feelings are NOT going to be hurt because he’s not invited.
I’ll say stuff like – “woohoo, three months from today, I become the Mrs.!” or most recently, “my gas gauge is broken. $650 to fix. Nuptials t-minus three weeks. FML.”
And I always have a comment on my page from someone about how the big day is getting closer or it’s almost time… which makes me happy. 🙂

i’m on twiter and fb often (i found my job through twitter! i love it) but i am very careful about how i explain wedding related stuff. i’m usually pretty vauge, just so it’s not “hey i’m having a wedding and you’re not invited, don’t you want to know what i’m doing?!” but just the funny things that happen when you are planning.
that being said, i enjoy reading other peoples statuses and seeing what they’re up to even if i’m not invited/involved. weddings definitely can be a slippery slope though!

I NEVER do status updates about the wedding planning. Too many people are already trying to get an invitation and they are sssoo not invited.lol I want them to forget I’m even getting married! haha

I don’t see a problem with the occasional post…but. if it’s everyday then yeah may be overboard. I will likely do the occasional post when exciting things happen…I did post when we found our venue and set the date..it helped with having people I don’t see often to stop asking if we set it. I have noticed many friends in the planning process write up posts and I was never offended when I wasn’t invited. It was nice to see what people were doing though…I don’t expect to be invited to every FB friend’s wedding either some are people I was closer to then drifted apart other friends were teammates, etc…

I do sometimes, because eh, why not? I do’nt do it often, but when I update about it it’s usually complaining about money/stress or noting a countdown. Nothing very specific. Our friends are pretty clearly defined – all of our good friends are invited, and everybody else is kind of just acquaintances. We haven’t gotten any people expecting to be invited who aren’t.
