We had a not so great one turn up from our frist dance, but what can you do.  One of my BMs took a pic of me when I first got ready and was about to post it before she realized what she was doing!

@MiSsyK:  because the birth of a child and their safety is a lot different than a wedding where you are inviting people. if it is such an “intimate” moment (that word makes me think of sex not a wedding) why is anyone even there?

@RaysBride89:  I definitely did not read this whole thread because people went ape sh** on you in the first page alone…But I think you’re being perfectly reasonable.  I just had my bridal shower and had the same concern.  I told my mom beforehand, and she just made an announcement before everyone left and said something like, “Please remember not to post any photos on Facebook, per the bride’s request.”  No one seemed to care, and I definitely didn’t have anyone post pictures anyway.  It’s your wedding.  You can do whatever you want.  You’re not being unreasonable at all.  People just love to troll on forums.  Ignore the haters.

It seems like a pretty reasonable request to not have your pictures put on the web. It’s another thing if the guests want to put pictures of themselves at your wedding online.

@suburbian:  People can post whatever they want about themselves just not me & my Fiance. I set up a site where people can post pictures there but you have to have a password to view the pictures. I don’t want anyone seeing pictures of me unless I want them to. Thank God most of the people I invited won’t do this, but I put it in my programs anyway.

@cantonbride:  One of my reasons is safety. I have a pyscho ex-husband who is still trying to find me to kill me, so I would be highly upset if anyone posted pictures of me on social media without telling me.

OP, it sounds like your concern isn’t for privacy, but for vanity, so I don’t think there’s any polite way to do what you are asking.

I agree that it sounds controlling and is a definite bridezilla move. Yes, you can put up a sign saying please do not post to social media, but that won’t stop some people. Maybe no guests is the best move for you?

@mrsrigsby60:  I have to ask, and not being snarky, but why would you post photos of yourself on here (i saw from clicking your profile) ….

@cantonbride:  Nobody knows me on here or my real name. My ex-husband who wants to kill me can’t find me on here. I don’t want people who know me to see my picture unless I want them to. I didn’t put an engagement announcement in the paper nor will I put a wedding announcement in the paper for that reason. I would have blurred my face but I don’t know how to do that.

@BooRadley:  For some people, it’s not about making sure you look pretty,it’s about safety

@mrsrigsby60:  Okay, your situation is obviously much different and completely understandable.  The OP stated that she didn’t want guests to post bad/unflattering photos of herself on the internet, so I was addressing that concern.
