It irks me when I see things like this! It’s embarrassing. Just deal with these issues with people individually and on a case-by-base basis. Doing a mass post like this is both rude to the people you invited and to the people you didn’t invite. Hopefully she just doesn’t know the proper etiquette, because she really is a sweet and smart girl!
“Please keep sending in your RSVPs! Also, if you got a save the date but didnt get your invitation, please let me know… for some reason we have gotten back a few invitations but never got the save the dates back…..usps issues <br /> Also one more thing… we are having a big wedding and we want to be able to enjoy the day with everyone… it was very, very hard cutting our guest list to meet the size constraints of our venue .. that being said, please adhere to the guest names on the inner envelope that you received when you RSVP..I was very specific on those so that you would know exactly who was invited…. I am sorry if your kids did not get invited or if you didnt get a plus one but unfortunately the place is only so big….it might not seem like a big deal but if everyone were to add an extra person it turns into a very big deal…thanks for understanding….. love you all!!”

I love how it ends with “Love you all!”
Those kind of posts are rude and the bride is being lazy.

SunnierDaysAhead: Yep, rude and lazy.
Thankfully we had zero issues with ours (everyone RSVP’d by the deadline; no-one added anyone lol); but had we had issues, I’d have contacted those people directly. I have a friend who posted do CONSTANT statuses along the lines of what you posted above, and it drove me insane. Not only do I think it’s a bit rude, but it’s also a bit cringy; like, why have you invited all these people who can’t be bothered to reply on time?!

I don’t think that it’s horribly rude.

hollyberry4: First thought that popped into my head while reading this…yikes, I wonder if we will be seeing this on an episode of Bridezillas!

I only use Facebook to keep in contact with my close friends and family. Because of that, about everyone in my Facebook friends was invited to our wedding and little posts like these would have been way faster for tracking down the RSVPs we never got back and seems less invasive than calling them and badgering them to get their yes or no. But that’s just me. Every bride is different and frankly I think if it’s not actually harming anyone, eff the etiquette and let them do their thing.

hollyberry4: I’ve got one too. Almost made my own post about it. This is a copy and paste:
PS: This is a CELEBRATION, NOT a huge party. Well yes we will be partying … BUT it is not some crazy stupid retarded party where everyone can get all retarded (fight, throw crap everywhere, start drama, act like fools, or disrespect me). It’s just a regular celebration but with beer. We would love everyone to celebrate our marriage with us without having to worry about other people’s retarded behavior all night. Please do not invite any dates without asking us first. If they weren’t invited by one of us, there’s probably a reason. Hope to see everyone there! It’s gonna be a good time!!

I don’t find it offensive. It probably could have been said in a message though, but posting is much quicker.

You can control the audience of your Facebook posts. Perhaps the bride has created a Friends List of only people invited to the wedding.

Horseradish: I am not invited to the wedding so it’s definitely not a special group.
She also posted pictures of her wedding invitations.
