  • poll: Is it tacky to post a photo of the ring on facebook?

    Yes! Totally tacky.

    Ehh... kind of, but who cares. Your friends understand you're excited.

    No way!! Love the facebook ring-shot.

    Other, I'll explain below

    I’m not a fan, but then again I only emailed my mom a picture, avoided other requests for emailed pics, and people were coming up to me saying “I heard you got a ring.”  I just don’t like the attention or want others to think I’m showing off.

    My Fiance posted a photo of the ring and tagged me in it.  I thought it was cute!  If people can post 10,000 pictures of their babies (i’m sure I’ll do that too 😉 then I say post away.  If people don’t want to see it, chances are they aren’t going to look at your photos anyway…

    I have a photo album on my FB page titled Wedding Things and I put all wedding related items in there-including a picture of my ering and then two of my ering with my wedding band-not much else in there right now. I did not post pictures of my dress. I have alot of albums-with my kids, with Fiance, with Fiance and my kids-but my albums are also private and everyone who is a friend is someone that I actually know-not just a random name.

    I really love FB bc I have good friends scattered far and wide-with us all being super busy moms and having crazy lives and some of my friends living so far away-it’s really nice to be able to log on and see updates, pictures of babies and kids, etc. without spending hours on the phone (none of us really have the time) and it also saves multiple emails and filling up each others inboxes with pictures. Not that we don’t love each other, but pictures take up alot of space.

    Its kind of funny-this past summer, alot of the teachers I work with are on FB and we are all friends-and kept up with each other on FB so when we had our first faculty meeting-it was like a mini catch up and everyone talking about each other’s vacation pictures, kids, and what was going on with who.

    I absolutely love FB, but felt no need to post my e-ring pics.  However, after having my ring for 2 weeks and not posting pics, I started to receive a lot of messages asking me why I didn’t post my pics.  Was I too busy? Did I not like my ring? Did I not care about other people wanting to see it?  It was a little crazy.  So I finally capitulated and posted pics.  Suddenly everyone was happy.  I guess since all of my loved ones are scattered far and while they were feeling a little left out of the loop.

    It’s a little tacky, but eh.  I get it.  And I want to see the ring, so!

    When I got my ring, I put a ring on every finger (I have all sorts of costume rings lying around) and told everyone that he loved me so much he put a BUNCH of rings on it.

    I don’t think it’s tacky at all… and of course I say that, because I posted a picture of my ring on my wall 🙂

    I do agree that it’s weird when people use it as their profile picture.  My profile picture is of my Fiance and I the night we got enagaged (you can’t see the ring).  I did post a ring pic because so many people wanted to see, and it just makes me happy to see it on my wall 🙂  Plus, I have an iPhone and I wasn’t able to send picture messages at that time… sooo FB was easier lol

    I don’t love it. Especially if its a profile pic – I can tolerate if its intermixed in an album but yeah… no, not for me. It’s right up there behind sonogram pics, seriously guys?

    i haven’t yet posted any ring pictures on my fb, a friend of mine did and i think it was cute because it showed how excited she was! in fact, she had a whole ‘engagement album’ which was a bit much because there were like 6 shots of JUST the ring. i liked the ones of the couple and reading how he proposed and all… i haven’t posted ring photos on fb because i have a lot of fb friends who are acquaintances (IF THAT) and i prefer to send the photos to my close friends via email. 

    however, i do have ring shot here on weddingbee as my avatar…… i guess i’m allowed to here because its a wedding website and people are on here for wedding stuff!

    I got engaged christmas eve, so I put a picture of my ring in an album with a zillion other pictures from that christmas.  I would never make the ring my profile pic though.  I am not my ring!

    I do have a few pix of my ring up, because I loooove it!! I can see how it can be tacky, but in my case everybody wanted to see photos of the ring, and I’m proud of it! I didn’t tag them or make them my default or anything though :o)

    posting a few is fine.. (I have family who lives far away so they wanted to see the bling), but posting 60 is overkill… and posting more than one album is unnecesary.  also, posting photos of the ring in more than one setting IS a little weird.  I think friends and family get the idea from a few angles in one environment.

    I don’t have a problem with it – like others have said, not as the profile picture, but in an album.

    I posted an album of the engagement night which included 1 or 2 pics of the ring.  It ended up being great for my parents who sent the link of the album to family (which is all spread out over the country and in other countries) so they were able to see the moments from that special night.  I agree that if it’s posted as a profile pic that’s a bit much.

    I think its totally tacking.  It seems to me like I am bragging.  I don’t know.  I also don’t want a large picture of it out there – you never know who may somehow see that kind of photo (even though mine are private) and I would prefer to not get robbed or something like that.

     

    I’m pretty cautious and conservative my nature, which is also why.
