I am guilty of posting a lot of facebook. I havent received any negative feedback as of yet. I have a lot of friends and Fiance family that is out of town so I feel this way they can be part of the process too!

I don’t post anything. I changed my relationship status, posted a picture of the ring and other than that, nothing. I’m not inviting a lot of people, so I don’t post details. When I do get asked about things, like when the big day is, I’m vague, I’ll say “probably October, but we don’t know yet” and that’s usually ok.

I created a Vow Renewal Group:)  and I share alot, but there are some things I’m not sharing.  Like they know there will be a reception, but they don’t know where it is at… etc….  I am so excited for htat, and think its awesome to keep things a secret because surprises are awesome:)

I had a funny status about being engaged and that was it. I didn’t post my ring, and mostly private messaged family/friends the details before I changed my status. I would like to share some milestones, but I had this one friend who went crazy bridezilla and updated her status 3 times a day about her wedding, had a wedding countdown app (down to the second) that posted every day on her behalf, dubbed herself “Princess ___” because she was having a “fairytale” wedding, and updated ANYTIME she bought something. She’s still a little crazy (she won’t even called her Darling Husband by his name when she’s talking about him, she says “my husband”) so I limited all posts from her on FB, but I’m so sick of hearing about her wedding and all the planning, that I don’t ever want people to get sick of me like that. It completely ruined the friendship for me.

I didn’t even announce that I was planning a wedding or that I was engaged on FB.

The most I’ve mentioned about the wedding on Facebook was the changed relationship statuses for “engaged” and “married” a few days after the fact and an album of wedding photos.

I rarely post statuses about day-to-day activities, though, and mostly use facebook for messaging, photos, events, and links.

I only posted a few things – our e-pics and changed our status to engaged.  I don’t really go on facebook that much anymore though.

I don’t say anything, and I won’t. all I’ve done is change my relationship status to engaged. most of my FB friends won’t be invited, so I think it’d be rude to post a bunch of wedding stuff. But I also barely use facebook to begin with, so there’s that too.

I posted quite a bit at first – with the excitement and all. Plus I had a friend from high-school doing the same and I almost felt like I was competing with her a little bit.

In the end, I stopped – and actually went back and deleted ALL wedding related pictures, statuses, comments, and blocked my pinterest activity from showing up on Facebook because too many people assumed they were being invited, and/or had strong opinions on things that were already decided, etc.
