@MrsWBS:  +1 I think she really just wanted people to say “oh, how cute that he’s so excited,” not actually fix the problem. Sigh.

paula1248 +1 !!!  Those combined FB’s drive me crazy, but I would never tell them for fear they’d get upset with me.  Instead I just never talk to anyone who does that as I never know whose info I am commenting on or which one is responding 🙂

Since you are NOT asking for critism on your Facebook choices but on over excited grooms… I’ll say no..lol my DH posted nothing. I’d just remind him of the impending train wreck posts like that cause and ask him to limit them 🙂

If you share the FB account, just make a “Wedding” FB list of people who ARE invited and ask him to post wedding-related stuff to that list only.  Problem solved.

I’m actually going to have to agree, sharing facebooks is rather annoying. It kind of makes me feel like something a young couple with trust issues would do. Course then again I know a bunch of couples wiht trust problems who had to share a FB for either to have them. But not knowing who posted what is super annoying.


on a side note, I can’t really say what to do in this case. I would probably post things on facebook such as finally found the dress or whatever probably… I would probably have a thought in my head to tell people who weren’t invited. otherwise i may not post on there. its hard to say, but now im planning for a baby and our wedding is on hold so i didnt get much chance to start my planning! HA

@SnowBunny420:  the worst part about this is that you share a FB page.

@SnowBunny420:  Lol. That’ s perfectly fine, I’d be happy to show you the ropes on some pretty basic things. For one – yes, talking about a party, any party, on Facebook that you don’t plan on inviting everyone too is rude. Like, really rude. “Hey everyone, I’m so excited for our big day. It’s going to be awesome. Yay! #wedding #herewecome #blahblahblah”. Not very nice. You wouldn’t do this in person, would you? If you were in a circle of friends that weren’t going to get invited, you’d keep your mouth shut right and not blab on and on about something they won’t get to partake in. I would hope so.

@SnowBunny420:  No one is going to tell you directly that shared facebook pages are wierd but they are. And why come on here and be mean to everyone?

Well, in answer to your actual question, you can try to explain to him that other than an occasional post here and there most people find the constant posts about a wedding to be unbearable. No one will tell you this of course, but you might notice that your first posts has a bunch of likes or comments. Then after that all your posts have only a like from Aunt Sally or your closest cousin. He doesn’t want to be “that guy” especially considering that by having a joint account he is making you “that girl” i.e. unbearable. Plus, don’t you want people to be surprised? Not, oh yeah I remember the 50 posts about the hunt for these exact center pieces.

“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.”

I agree with the creating of a ‘fan page’ of sorts that you can invite wedding invitees to see if you want to share info with them!  The problem isn’t sharing it on facebook, it’s that you are sharing it to people that are not invited!  People can ‘like’ the page if they want the updates, and your fiance can update it? 

Also, just a warning, joint facebook pages are ‘technically’ prohibited.  The terms state it is suppose to be one real person, no fake names or joining of names.  Just so you know, I’ve heard of people getting their accounts disabled because of this.  Just a thought..do what you want though..

@SnowBunny420:  i can imagine that’s pretty annoying. 

i’d love for my groom to be almost that excited. Laughing but he’s not an especially enthusiastic person, so that’s not likely to happen.

If you had your own FB page it wouldn’t be an issue. Another one who finds them irritating.
