Whoa. I’m with MissHelen – I would call her and ask that she take them down immediately.
I would be SO upset if I were you! Like most everyone who has posted, I cannot imagine why she would do that. Most people know that the dress is usually a surprise to most, if not almost everyone, at the wedding. Even if she didn’t know that, common sense would tell you not to post a picture on a public forum of someone in her wedding dress BEFORE the wedding. Sheesh!
I hope she takes the photos down quickly and that no one else has seen them or copied them. Keep us posted!

I would think she should know better. I’d be shocked.

Not at all! pics of you are one thing, but of you in your dress? thank goodness you got to her quickly and hopefully she gets them down!

Wow, how rude!! Some people are so clueless. I’m sorry you had to go through this today. Hopefully it comes down soon.

I would be so f-ing pissed. I picked out my dress with my sister and my mom, and aside from possibly showing it to my Future Mother-In-Law, I’m not showing it to anyone else. So yea, I’d be absolutely furious.

That is super insensitive! I’m so sorry. Hopefully she takes them down asap!

I. Would. Be. Pissed. And I totally don’t understand how she doesn’t comprehend that what she did is not acceptable. Plus, why in the world would you post a picture of someone else in their wedding dress before their wedding on your own facebook page? Who does that?!

I would be livid. The only people who have seen my dress are my BMs. The big dress reveal is one of the things I’m really looking forward to on my wedding day.
Let us know when she takes it down–hopefully soon!

i would fliiiiip out. You are definitely being nicer than I would!

Yes, I would flip out, too!
And I’ve shown my dress to lots of people, but I would be absolutely crushed if my Fiance saw it before the day. And facebook can’t be helped – people tag you, and then everyone can see you! I would have had a total meltdown in your position!
I once made a similar mistake on a much smaller scale out of excitement – when being fitted for my Bridesmaid or Best Man dress for my brother’s wedding, I pointed out the bride’s dress to my auntie, who hadn’t seen it. The bride wasn’t there, and never knew, but I was racked with guilt afterwards! Sooo guilty! I hadn’t thought when I was doing it, I was just excited. But that was ONE person (who was invited dress shopping, but couldn’t come on the day), and there was no chance of the groom seeing.

Totally uncalled for! I would be so pissed! That is not something you share. Like pp said, even if your fiance wasn’t on facebook, it would still be inappropriate. One of the biggest parts of a wedding as a guest is seeing the bride in her dress for the first time. There is a lot of anticipation there. How dare someone take that away from you! I really admire your patience.
Is it down yet?

That is upsetting! I was dress shopping with my friend and she took a photo with her phone of me in a $6000 dress that I had absolutely no intention of purchasing (it was just fun to try on), and she asked me if she could tweet it – even that, I said no, because I didn’t want my then-fiance to see me in any wedding dress at all, even if it wasn’t The One! The key point here is that she asked me if it would be okay! I think your friend might have a couple of screws loose, sadly. Hope it gets resolved.

I would be pissed and I would tell her OFF! That is the reason why I didn’t send anyone pics of me in my dress.

What a nut. Some people have no sense of boundaries.

If she’s your friend, I doubt that she was doing it to be malicious. Probably just a lapse of judgment. So call her, untag yourself, cross your fingers, yell about her to the wall, punch a pillow, but give her the benefit of the doubt. She’s your friend afterall and I bet she was just excited for you.
And I’m just trying to make you feel a little better here, for what it’s worth: you trying on your wedding dress has NO comparison to the way that you will look on your wedding day, so even if a few people saw it, trust me, they will still be surprised and awestruck 🙂
