I didn’t post anything related to wedding planning at all. I did post a picture collage (like from the iphone apps) of the venue, but it is a non-profit conservancy, so it just looked like I was there visiting like everyone else. 

I guess I would have considered hosting a private group to share details with those that cared/were involved, but then I didn’t have a Bridal Party and I didn’t want 100000 unsolicited opinions.

I said zilch on FB. nobody even knew I was engaged, let alone getting married until the day after.

I was tagged in my engagement pics by the photographer but that’s it. I don’t really mind other people posting about their weddings, but it’s not for me.

I changed my status to engaged and when we hit the one year mark I posted “official one year count down has begun”

I haven’t posted anything wedding related for months, not because I’m worrying that people will assume they’re invited, but because most people don’t actually care that you have ‘the best bridesmaids in the world’ ( a girl on my page posts this every. single. day.

I make the occasional post: announced when we got engaged, did a facebook std and alos shared my wedding planning bio.  I also may make a comment here and there and I posted a ring of my nails with my ring.  I am not on fb that much so it’s not overload.  It’s defnitly not much info but all of my fb friends have been much known me and fi since highschool and then there is my family and fi’s family.  So they like seeing the updates.

The only times the wedding was mentioned on FB was:
1. engagement status change
2. one comment about reigstering
3. pictures people posted from bachelorette party (pirate cruise!)
4. wedding 

Wedding and honeymoon photos will eventually go up, but wedding planning on FB is kind of like babies- no one wants to read every detail!

All I’ve done since getting engaged is changing our relationship status – didn’t even post photos of the ring. I hate constant facebook updates, and have deleted a few people for constantly spamming my feed with useless nonsense.

I only posted one wedding-related post about six months ago, and that was something along the lines of “I f—ing hate weddings. Who the f— came up with that idea and why didn’t someone kill them instantly?” Fiance and I are now planning a surprise wedding, so now I have to be quiet and sneaky about it 🙂

I’ve posted a few, but you’re right.. it brings up awkward “am I invited?” questions that I hate, so I have generally stopped!

I posted my ring pic, will post my e-pics, and my mom tagged me in her “Going dress shopping” status. Other than that, nothing.

Not a word on facebook from me.  We are eloping though and only our closest friends know that’s what we are planning.

@niasg1:  Great minds! I share nothing. I will send a message to my friends about it if I just HAVE to share Laughing
