My Fiance and I have just decided our wedding date and people are asking left and right what it is. Well I’m not sure I want everyone knowing what the date is, especially those who I am not inviting. Also having family drama with picking the date. Some of them want us to change it to accomodate them. Not changing the date but don’t want to start a war on Facebook.

I wouldn’t. You’re just opening yourself up to people asking, “So will I be invited?”
In general, most personal stuff should just be left off Facebook.

I wouldn’t. You run the risk of people assuming they are invited, or people seeing details you may not want them to see.

no – i wouldn’t do it. not only will you get the “will i be invited?” but you’ve got some people drama already and this would only make it worse. keep it to yourselves and only share it with those you’re comfortable with.

I wouldn’t either. Not to be overly paranoid, but I’ve read of people posting on fb that they’re on vacation or out of the house and then getting robbed.

Same here – I say no. When it gets closer to my date I am considering making a private group/event to ask FB friends for addresses to send out invitations, but that is as far as I will go.
For now, you may be stuck with just telling people the date when they ask 🙂

As soon as people heard I was engaged, I was getting messages and comments from people that I haven’t talked to in months and years! Or even from people I’m not close to.
“So, when can I expect an invitation in the mail?”
“Is it a small or big wedding.”
“Don’t forget about me!!”
…I mean seriously?! I understand people are excited and would like to be a part of the celebration, but c’mon now. It’s absolutely rude.

Nope. The less wedding stuff on facebook the better.

don’t. it would cause a lot of drama. I have seen a few girls do this. ( i did it too. when we fist got engaged. but we changed our date) and there was a number of people that wrote things like, ” can’t wait. we are going to have a blast” or ” its going to be one hell of a party” and ” I hope that it’s a open bar”. It was a mistake. It’s not the reason we changed our date but when we did, I made sure facebook didn’t know about it.

I definitely wouldn’t. The only thing I’ve mentioned on FB about getting married was that I’m engaged. Otherwise, the people who are invited will know the date when they get the invitation!

It’s personal preference. I haven’t had issues with friends making inappropriate comments, but I’ve tried to keep wedding-talk to a minimum.

I will add to my earlier post that we did set up a “wedding party page” which we set to the private setting. It is only for the bridal party and we have used it to keep everyone up to date on happenings, etc. since several people live out of town. That way, we can discuss with one another, pics, etc. but the general FB population knows nothing about it. You just have to make sure you set it to private when you create the page.

only if you plan to invite everyone on your friend list.
Post # 15
Definitely not! People that will be invited will know when it is!
Post # 16
No, I didn’t and will not put anything on FB about it.
