I wish I had the nerve to actually post it but it smacks of “this is my wedding, I’m the bride, follow my rules” and I’m just not that was.
Maybe I could go the Public Service Announcement route? “Hey, good read if you’re attending a wedding soon.”
I don’t talk about my wedding on facebook at all and it would end up being pretty transparent why I posted.
Maybe another B has the nerve to post it to their facebook, if you do, let me know how it went over.

get your Maid/Matron of Honor to post it?
But do you really think your guests need to see this? Do you not think they’d behave?

Yeah, if you post it, it won’t come off looking very good and chances are that if you have guests who are rude and can’t handle themselves in public, they won’t read the article anyway. It will only serve to offend people who are well behaved and don’t need to be told how to act like adults. 99.9% of wedding guests don’t attend a wedding with the agenda to ruin the wedding for the bride and groom, I promise 🙂

Why do you feel the need to post this? I think most people know how to handle themselves at weddings.

We all here horror stories about uninvited +ones.
Some people really don’t know wedding etiquette.
For example, my best friend (and bridesmaid) came over last night (she’s incredibly artistic and talented and is helping out a ton with favors and hand written addresses on invites)…she said “I know we talked about invites at the wedding, and that teens aren’t getting a + one but Trenton (her son) is all excited to bring his girlfriend (they’re both 17, our sons grew up together as children of two best friends) and I thought maybe I could just pay for her dinner”
How can I say no?

wow, really? I’d be offended if a bride of a wedding I was going to be going to posted that. I agree, people know how to act at a wedding. Plus, I really don’t think you are going to go around monitoring all your guests to see if they are following the rules. *eyroll*

maybe I’m just worried as the day inches closer.
*eyeroll*? This warrants an eyeroll? I thought it was a well written (not snarky) fyi on wedding etiquette for the laymen (aka someone who doesn’t watch Friday Bride day EVERY Friday, like me).
Well…you, rickhurst35, have shed some light. I need to chill. Even if you were snarky.

I would be so, so tempted to post it. But yeah, may come off … like you don’t think people know how to act which could offend some. That being said, in general people don’t know how to act. Sigh.

I think it’s all common-sense stuff. I probably wouldn’t bother!
Post # 11
I gave the article an *eyeroll*. Not you. I think a bunch of these article written on etiquette is to get brides all worked up about stupid stuff before their wedding and make them turn into bridezillas. I try not to read stuff and use my common sense.

Thanks for clarifying, rickhurst35, I thought you were rolling your eyes at me.
They’re feeding into my manic-bridal-will it all work out? fears.

I wouldn’t post this. If I were a guest at your wedding, I would find it to be rude. Giving adults a list of rules, that basically equate to common sense, is inappropriate. Sorry.
Post # 14
these rules all seem pretty obvious to me but you can always have a friend post instead.

Truthfully, if I was invited to a wedding (Or even not invited) and the bride posted something like this, it would cement in my mind that she wanted to micromanage her guests and be a bridezilla. I disagree with some of the bullet points in your article (Like wearing white & roast toasts and I think others are absolutely dumb as hell like spilling on the bride. Who goes to a wedding and goes Muwhaha! I’ll spill this coke on the bride’s chest! I mean, really?) and it really makes it seem like you’re treating your attendants and guests like children. If you can’t trust them enough to not act like barbarians (All of these are common sense.) then it’s simple to not invite them.
I would be very put off by a bride posting this, “It’s my wedding, read these rules!” and I would likely not go if I were invited.

I’d post it and say “Thank God none of my guests would behave like this! I feel bad for the brides that have these guests!”
Obviously you’re getting married, so wedding articles are super interesting to you. Nothing wrong with posting it on FaceBook.
Though I’m not sure any of your guests would actually read it.
