    I think it’s fair to say no photos of you or your husband be posted online, but photos of other people/things should be fine. If I was going out of my way to go to a Destination Wedding, you can bet I’ll be posting photos of it.

    I cant stand Facebook, Twitter, My Space or any other social media site and I have not sign up for ANY of them.  I don’t care if your cooking a roast or you are feeling sick from drinking to much and have been in bed all day.  

    I will be asking people not to upload photos onto media sites and I’m pretty sure they won’t as they all know clearly my opinion on them is.  I’ll just say the photographer doesn’t want people with cameras up to their faces to be in the shots.  I have a photo booth so they can up load those if they desperately need to get their fix – they’ll have to scan or take a pic of that after the day.

    This site is as social as I’ve been and initially it was to communicate with people in the classifieds….

    I didn’t want this so we set up and paid for an account on flickr for people to add photos and my stepdad announced this to people as part of his speech. In the end it didn’t happen as it was a nightmare for people to upload their pics. What my stepdad was going to do but forgot was to get CD’s for people to upload their pics onto, which would’ve been so much better We could’ve put them into a basket next to the cardbox.

    I think it’s perfectly fine to ask people not to upload pictures of your wedding to facebook. (Even if you ask facebook to remove the pictures, they will still keep them archived on their servers; facebook never completely deletes anything.)

    I really don’t think people need to or even should digitize their entire lives. It makes me sad that we can’t just truly immerse ourselves in anything anymore and enjoy it in the moment without without “I have to tweet this!” or “I’ve gotta upload this to facebook!” People can’t even take a walk on a nice day without bringing some kind of gadget along.

    Most of the time, it’s all in the phrasing. If you ask people not to do something, as a favor to you, they’re more likely to respect it (and not mutter things like “Nutso control freak bridezilla!” under their breath) than if you order them not to post photos.

    I don’t think you can prevent it. Your guests will be having a good time and will want to post photos to capture the moment.

    It isn’t just your day! If you dont want them to be linked to you, untag any photos that come your way!

    I think in the long run you will appreciate any photos taken on the day..

    Opps… i just did this, like 3 hours ago.  I was taking loads of snapshots of the bride and groom at the wedding this past weekend (my Fiance was in the bridal party.)  Then I posted the pics on my facebook and tagged the bride and groom hoping that they would be able to see the pictures before they go on their honeymoon tomorrow. 

    I know if it was me, I would want to see pictures of my wedding ASAP.  THat’s why I took so many pics of them.  Now I realize that it may be a faux pas.

    Change your privacy settings, so that photos of you can’t be seen.

    I LOVE seeing pictures of wedding on Facebook so I’m not going to ban people from doing it. If your FH doesn’t want pictures of himself online then try to explain it clearly, but I learned a long time ago that you just can’t control what other people put online (or in a magazine in my case).

    We’re asking people not to take pictures during the ceremony because we want their attention on what’s going on rather than on their phones, but after that it’s a free-for-all. We’re going to sneak off and change our status to “Married” and post a picture of us before anyone else gets a chance.
