Planning my wedding is soooo much fun, obviously! You ladies know that. But, I’m starting to wonder if I post about it too often on facebook. I’ve been careful not to post any pictures of flowers, dresses, the cake, etc. as I want my guests to be surprised. That’s what weddingbee is for, right?! But, I do post about the wedding planning process and I oftentimes refer to my fiance as “hubby-to-be.” I don’t want to be annoying. So, how much is too much?

You know, I posted that we were engaged and left it at that. I am not publicizing any of my wedding planning. There are just to many people on my friends list who aren’t invited to the wedding and I sort of feel that posting any wedding plans is sort of a slap in the face to them. You can always come up with a wedding website and send a link to that to all the people you want to keep informed, there.

if i have certain elements, like when my dress came in, or my invites were ready, I posted. I’ve asked about name-changing, and whether they’d eat prime rib or lamb for dinner….
Maybe I post too much. Ah well.

I did so very little posting on FB as almost all of my FB wasn’t invited to the wedding. My cousin that I am not close to, his fiance has posted just a tiny bit and she has gotten alot of the “I am invited right” types of posts. Now she is very vague about the wedding posts and I have noticed that she isn’t getting those responses anymore.

i post often but the people that arent invited also live over 1000 miles away and are friends from school. they understand since most of them did the courthouse thing.

You can post as much as you’d like… it is your facebook afterall. I post about my wedding planning once in a while mainly when I update my blog I just post a link… and I put up a pic of my dress/ shoes when I finally found them… I liked the feedback I got from people that knew me personally. I also have an event page for the wedding so people can ask me questions and such and let me know if they will be coming or not so I don’t waste invitations.

Unless you are inviting all of your fb friends, I would keep the posts to a minimum. But I also haven’t updated my facebook status in 3 months, so maybe I’m not one to talk…. (I use a friends-locked twitter for my status updates, and all of my twitter firends were invited to my wedding–I’m much pickier about who I friend on twitter!)

@SandyThePoet: What she said. I posted that we were engaged and later posted our wedding date. Otherwise, I don’t talk wedding on FB AT ALL! The majority of my FB friends AREN’T invited and I agree with what someone else said, it’s sort of a slap in the face.

I think I posted 1) I was engaged, 2) something about delicious cake tastings and 3) I’m getting married tomorrow! I posted a few pictures from my shower, and a handful from our engagement shoot/wedding. That was about it, but I’m not a big facebook status updater in general.
That said, I don’t really mind hearing about other people’s plans, and if they get annoying I just block them…

I was always taught that it’s rude to discuss an event in front of people not invited to the event, so I’d keep the wedding plans off facebook.
Announcing your engagement or that you got married is fine, but save the tales of dress shopping, tastings, etc. for invited friends (who care) and weddingbee.

I don’t post on FB cuz when I linked them our engagement pictures like 5 people said ‘AM I GETTING TAH INVITEZ?!’ So not worth it…I talk to you fine folks about wedding stuff instead =D

My DH’s best friend and his Fiance made a His-Hers Wedding FB page. Then they invited all the guests they expect to invite, and set the privacy settings so that no one but the invitees can see it. I thought it was brilliant. That way you keep it all in the “need to know” group, you won’t have to worry about people inviting themselves on your FB wall, and if someone is annoyed by how often you post they can just hide that profile. If you’re worried about how to post about the wedding on FB, I think that is the way to go.

@SandyThePoet: Agreed, same for me.

I’ve posted a couple milestones – “100 days till the big one” was one I wrote, but I don’t say “Ryansgirl is going to try on my dress today” or “Ryansgirl is picking flowers for the wedding today” or anything like that. I have friends that post alll the time about what stage their planning was, it’s too much and gets really annoying. Especially if you’re not invited.

I sincerely hate the word “hubby.”
