Since everyone and their moms seem to have facebook nowadays I was thinking (ok well I already went ahead and did it but am now wondering if it’s a mistake) that maybe making a wedding page on facebook would be better or just the same as making a wedding website. So I went ahead and did it. Used the time line with photos to capture our time line from beginning to the wedding. That way they will get updates on the wedding right there on their face book.
We added an album from our engagement shots, and another from our dating phase and will continue to add albums of like the engagement party etc and all the way through the wedding, as well as posting updates on face book. Will this be a disaster or do you think this could work? Is there a reason for using wedding websites over face book? It seemed facebook was more convenient considering the fact that everyone seems to have it.
I also didn’t post on my facebook since not everyone on my friends list is invited, so I just sent emails to everyone giving them the facebook link. I already did this but I’m nervous, am I setting myself up for disaster doing all of this? A little nervous now having everything public like that… Opinions?

I do want to mention, I personally have a very private facebook, everything about my fb is private and I have less than 100 friends on it, all people I know and am really close with, and family. Same with Fiance, too many people over time have caused drama so we made our personal fb’s very private

hmmm… interest and I think a good idea. I am interested as to why others might not think it is great. Maybe I am not thinking of something that could go wrong.
If you are careful to only have people involved with the wedding I think it is a great way to track everything and share all your fun details.
Maybe I am missing something though??

I have a wedding group…it’s a place to put info on wedding updates/party dates/important dates for the bridal party….
I also will use it to put information on things I want to do/make for our wedding….
It works well, and so far no one has complained to me about it….but it IS private….

Yeah, I just realized the privacy part, but I don’t think I have that option as I set it up as a business type page ;/ I’m gonna mess around with it though and see what I can do… oops

I think it would work but I would set it up as a group. It’s nice to have a page, but the whole privacy issue is kinda wonky now on Facebook.
I set up a group for my bridesmaids and I to discuss ideas, dresses, etc. You can post pics, set up polls, etc so not as amazing as say a “Page” but it gets the job done. Also – it’s very specific to those 4 ladies and myself. We also set one up for the whole bridal party so we can keep communication flowing. 🙂 If you want to post all your details however, I would suggest maybe a free wedding website.
Also – my concern would be if you are not inviting everyone on FB to your wedding, would some people get annoyed with all the updates of small details?

I don’t think it’s a terrible idea but I think the customizations that can be done on a normal website are better. I’m not a designer but luckily my fiance is and is in charge of our website.

We have an actual wedding website and then a little later(most of our guests are on facebook too) we creeated a facebook invite only event, that way only those invited have access to the info and other people who weren’t invited wont feel left out.
We felt it was a good idea since most of our friends regularily check FB but we know dont regularily check our wedding site. It is/was just meant for quick updates or reminders etc.
I facebook page is okay as long as you can limit who sees it 🙂

I set up a ‘secret group’ for myself, my mom and my bridesmaids since we are scattered around the state. that way we can all stay updated on DIY projects, events, planning etc…
I think what you do is fine, as long as the info stays with only those its intented for, that way anyone not invited doesn’t accidentally see something and think its intended for them

I did it. I even had separate groups for different people (me, my mum and my bridesmaids; the whole wedding party; day guests and evening guests). People loved it. It allowed them to find lift-shares, ask questions about what was going on and generally get engaged before the wedding.

I voted get rid of it because I didn’t think you could get any privacy and I thought that would cause unwanted problems for your guest list. if you can do it with a decent level of privacy, have at it.
