Last weekend, I put on my dress, my veil, had my hair and make up done and met with my photographer for a bridal shoot in a gorgeous old hotel here in KC. It was so fun and I was so anxious to see some of the proofs…
Last night, I am getting ready for bed, and I check my e-mail to see if he had sent any of them. What do I find? A Facebook notification that he has made a facebook album of the photos and tagged me… MEANING THAT EVERY PERSON I AM FRIENDS WITH ON FACEBOOD (roughly 700 people) CAN SEE ME IN MY WEDDING DRESS… INCLUDING MY FIANCE!!!
Yeah, I panicked… a few people started posting on my facebook wall "gorgeous pics" "cant wait to see you in person, you look beautiful" etc. but all I could think of it "my wedding is ruined- there goes the big dramatic moment!!!" and What if the fiance saw them.
I called my photographer immediately (well actually my mother did cause I was on the floor screaming and crying like a 4 year old). this was around midnight. He has posted them around 10pm. apparently he didn’t understand that things were open for ALL to see… I don’t know. Bottom line, he removed them immediately.
The fiance says that he didnt’ see them, he swears that he didnt’ see them. But my mother also told him that if he DID see them, he better lie for the rest of his life and say he didn’t :) I don’t think that many people saw them… but still, It was totally upsetting.
it was my first bridezilla moment… but was I justified in reacting the way I did? and for your viewing enjoyment, one of the pics (note how I will post it on here, but not on facebook!!!)

Oh, I can totally understand how upsetting that is — what a nightmare! How careless of your photographer!
Just remember, on the day you will be the BRIDE, and I bet most people who will be there won’t have seen the pics of you in your dress.
You look beautiful, by the way!!

He should have cleared posting your pics on the internet through you. I understand how this would be upsetting. If it’s any consolation, you look lovely! I love your dress!

Omg, I woulda flipped! That’s not right but it seems he really didn’t understand what he was doing. Since it was an honest mistake and he took them down, we’ll let him live. I’m sure not too many people saw them, and I doubt your future hubby did either. I can tell when my FI’s lying, can you? I’d ask again and look deeeeeep into his eyes lol. Ultimately, your wedding isn’t ruined because there’s nothing like the real thing. Everyone will be floored when they see you in person, I know this cuz the pic is beautiful :o)

wow! I would completely freak out too! I can’t imagine the panic you went through last night.
But, you do look fabulous!!!! So hopefully your man didn’t see them & even if he did, I am sure you will look even more radiant on your day & take his breath away a second time!

Ugh, how upsetting! Your photographer didn’t know? He obviously knew how to post pictures on facebook so you’d think he would know that if he tags you it goes on your page. I’d be horrified but I would think that not that many people would have seen them in the couple hours they were up. And even though the picture you posted is absolutely gorgeous, I bet you will be 10 times more breathtaking at your wedding when people actually see you in person.

Your bridezilla moment is totally justified. I’m glad he was able to take them down quickly. Your pic is beautiful, btw.

Oh wow! Nope, you were totally in the right on this one! I would have FLIPPED OUT!!!!
You look beautiful, though!! 🙂

Oh no!!! I am glad that your mom took care of it ASAP!! You look so beautiful and I am sure your Fiance if he did see them he closed his eyes once he realized he saw you!

I would have been really mad. At leas tyou were able to get it worked out and your fiance didn’t see them. You look really beautiful.
Here’s a nightmare for you – the jewelers BROKE my engagement ring 4 days before my wedding. It’s been almost three weeks since the wedding and I’m still trying to work it out.

I do have to ask…is your photographer a “friendor”? This whole thing seems very unprofessional. So as to avoid any other snafus I think you all need to have a sitdown discussion and go over what is expected before your wedding.

Oh hell no that was not a bridezilla moment. Why on earth would the photographer post something so soon of you in your dress? Engagement pics, sure, go ahead! But of the bride BEFORE the wedding day, um, hello, that’s a flat out no. I’m glad he took them down, but still, what a dork. I agree with someone else who mentioned about him asking if he could post your pics to his Facebook, there should have been something you agreed to sign first.
As for your photo—I love it 🙂

Ladies, I can’t tell you how wonderful it feels to have other people validate my panic!! Thanks for the support. And I know the day isn’t ruined or anything, but in that moment, it was devastating. But, I think we have recovered (no more comments, the pics ar gone, I don’t think anyone really saw them that I didn’t want to see them)
Heather25: I made my dress!!! Well, I designed it and bought the fabric and worked with a family friend seamstress on it. I was totally freaking out about it, wondering if it would look “bridal” and finished enough, but I couldn’t be happier!
