  • Wedding: July 2012

I don’t understand why it’s so offensive to people to hear of an event they aren’t invited to. I honestly don’t care if someone talks about their wedding in front of me if I’m not invited. I realize room can’t be made for everyone. This isn’t grade school where I’m the only kid excluded from a birthday party that everyone is bragging about at recess. Are weddings really so exciting that you wish you could attend every single one that you hear about on Facebook? Some parts of her post were a little odd and tacky, but roll your eyes and move on. Who cares if you’re not invited.

208bride:  that is horrid.

It is tacky that you even have to post that and request that your wedding guests act like civilized human beings. Not to mention how offensive to use the R word so many times.

ren89:  Yeah, I think it’s a little lazy-ish but everyone uses facebook for different ways.

How do you know she doesn’t have settings where she perhaps only allowed certain people on FB to see that particular post?

hollyberry4:  Listen, etiquette is a two way street. So she makes a post on FB, how long were you clutching your pearls in horror for? I mean come on, it’s tacky, but like a previous poster said, what’s even tackier is announcing her disgrace on a public forum. What would be proper etiquette for you is to do/say nothing and ignore her graceless post with an eyeroll (or two).

GreenBayBee:  you think posting a private message verbatim to a public forum is fine because it’s anonymous? It really isn’t. Good manners means a lot more than just making sure the victim isn’t listening before you bad mouth them.

bettybubble:  Oh come on! More than 2 thirds of the posts on this site are about asking the bee’s opinions on something and they post the original text.

weddingmaven:  Good point. I tend to doubt that someone who would publicly flame their “friend” would care enough to change any details, however.

Regardless, I am truly appalled at the complete lack of manners.

hollyberry4:  “The part I though was rude was not actually because people who weren’t invited can see it (I’m sure many people don’t really care they weren’t invited)”

Some wouldn’t otherwise care, but don’t wish to have the  details  pushed right under their nose. Others might very well feel badly about not being invited.  I would make the argument  that if one person was turned off, saddened, or offended, it’s one person too many.
