@AquaGrey8962:  No way. People are going to be offended when they don’t get an invite…or worse yet, you could have some crazies crash your wedding. I wouldn’t do it.

I’d think it was annoying (“look at all of this information about a party you might not be invited to!”) and rude if you had registry information listed.  I don’t post about my wedding on facebook at all though, so that’s my bias.

I think it depends on your facebook friends. I posted my wedding website to my FB but only to certain circles via my privacy settings. 

 

People were actually writing on my Fiance’s FB wall asking for an invitation…it was starting to get out of hand. We grew up in a small town and my Future Mother-In-Law gets asked everytime someone see’s her.

 

This was our polite way of letting people know that we can’t invite everyone to the wedding, but our parents are having a gift opening/cook out at their home after the wedding on Sunday. It’s open to all of our friends and family even if their not invited to the wedding. 

 

People were really excited to hear about the cookout on Sunday and it’s taken pressue off our folks.

EDIT: You can also password protect your ceremony and reception location.

i agree with pp’s. when people post their wedding related things on FB, i may not be close to them and I know I’m not getting an invite, but it just rubs me the wrong way because its a reminder that I won’t be invited to this *awesome* wedding/party. again, I’m not expecting to be invited, but that doesn’t mean I’m not thinking they are a little show-offy and inconsiderate to the rest of us on their friends list.

you could create a facebook secret group and post the link there, and only invite people who you are inviting to the group. No one else can see the group and the posts there. I think I will probably end up doing that just because so many people in my friend circle are on fb and use it regularily that its a good way to give out important info, but I’m not using it to show off.

Yeah as much as I want to be all look at my cool website, I’ve refrained.  It’s on our Save The Date’s and honestly not that many people have downloaded the app yet (I can’t see how many have just visited the site).  We’re including a little thing with our invites as well. 

 

I just don’t think most people are as in to it as I am (my Fiance included lol)

NO. Only invited guests should have the link available to them. It’s rude to post it for people who aren’t invited to the wedding.

Personally, I would love snooping on someone else’s wedding even if I know I won’t be invited, but that’s just because I’m obssessed with weddings…

I think more of my guests would have actually visited my wedding website if I would have posted it to facebook, but I didn’t do it because like everyone else points out, you just don’t know how people will react.  I think it would be a good idea to send the link out to your guests another way.

@AquaGrey8962:  I wouldn’t unless you want uninvited guests at your wedding and reception.

I posted ours on FB, but I set it to only go to people who received save the dates, and therefore, will receive an invitation.

@AquaGrey8962:  no way. That’s uber tacky to me. Unless you are inviting every person you’re fb friends with then I wouldn’t.

You could send the link via fb in a private msg to your very close friends though.

I wouldn’t. They’ll get the website info on the STD/invite, so there’s no need to post it now.
