@kgirl91:  I’m with you.  I totally don’t get joint facebook pages 😛  Like, why so hard to make your own one?

“I had to do damage control today he posted something and a friend replied with “where’s my invite”. “

I assume you told Michael that this was your friend’s not too subtle way of suggesting that her feelings were hurt by his behavior.   Ask him if he would similarly talk about the wedding in a room full of people who were not invited.  It’s the same exact thing.

@SnowBunny420:  Etiquette is firmly on the side of JrzyGurl on this one.  It is never polite  to  discuss the planning or anticipation  of a  wedding  in front of people who were not invited.

@paula1248:  yeah joint facebooks are so awkward! Like what if I want to send my Girlfriend a message or like a girls only invite or something? It would be like calling to talk to a couple who would only be on the phone if both were on at the same time lol so weird. It’s just too obnoxious and most people feel that way OP so no need to snarkily jump down Paula1248’s & everyone else’s throat when she’s giving you advice most of your facebook friends would love to give you too, b/c I PROMISE the majority of them are annoyed by it. You want full control over what’s written on your facebook? Don’t share it with another person. It’s not rocket science and it’s certainly no reason to be rude to people on here for telling it like it is.

@SnowBunny420:  Yeah I agree with you. I mean, when someone posts on facebook that they’re (say) going to the movies tonight, there’s never the implication that their 493 facebook friends are invited. I don’t see anything wrong with a wedding countdown, or casual wedding mentions, so long as it’s not overdone.

(But your Fiance is overdoing it, which is the problem).

@paula1248:  +1 joint FB accounts are strange to me too! My friend had one with her Fiance because she was “jealous about other girls posting to his wall.” I know that’s not the case for all  joint accounts but that’s what I associate it with!

@paula1248:  +1. We have separate FB so he can post what he wants, and I don’t have to sit him down like a child and explain what I feel is appropriate for FB or not.

I agree.  I’m sorry, joint facebook’s are weird, and if you haven’t been told this yet its just because people were being polite.  I always assume that if someone has a joint facebook (especially prior to marriage) it’s because one of the people can not be trusted with there own facebook, OR one person is controlling and doesn’t allow them to have their own.  He is an individual and so are you, get your own facebook. 

Also I have one friend who does this facebook wedding oversharing all the time, to a wedding I wasn’t invited too.  Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t go either way, but it is rude to people who were not invited.

When My BFF got married she decided to make a joint page…I guess because they can’t trust each other to have their own. I facepalmed hard.

Tell him to create a group in Facebook that only has people invited to the wedding, and post the status updates related to the wedding just to that group.

Oh, and another vote against joint Facebook pages.

SO doesn’t really use his facebook much. He usually makes me post pictures and things so people will see them. 

I have shared stuff on Facebook about the wedding because I’m excited and wanted to share it. I have had a couple of people who made comments and I told them I was sorry but we just didn’t have the budget. 

I personally put more on twitter because a lot less people in my life follow me on there. If it’s picture related I put in on instagram because once again not as many people follow me. 

It’s a good thing he’s so excited! I’ve been pleasantly surprised at what SO has been excited about for the big wedding. 

As far as everyone having an opinion on your shared fb it’s a good thing they aren’t your friends on there huh? Ignore them.

@SnowBunny420:  get your own facebook page, problem solved.  I don’t really understand how you start this thread complaining that he is posting too much wedding stuff on facebook, then respond to people by saying posting about the wedding isn’t a problem?
