I have been so eager to get the photos back from our big day and share them with everyone. However I just feel like everyone is so meh about it…and it has felt like that throughout the whole engagement/planning process. I understand that everyone has stuff going on but I still try and take the time to have an interest in people’s lives especially when they have upcoming significant events.
Probably silly to be upset about, but honestly my feelings are hurt. and of course it all starts over facebook and the lack of comments/likes on our wedding album…i dunno I’m prob just overreacting and being silly. Just needed to vent, but has anyone else felt this way? Just lack of support from start to finish?

@MamaMegs721: I feel the exact same way! And it’s mostly over the lack of comments from family. I put my fiance’s and my engagement pictures up and there was like maybe two people total to comment/like them. And when I post statuses about wedding stuff, they are rarely ‘liked’. I know it is probably silly, but it makes me feel like nobody cares about us getting married.

That’s sad. Everyone we knew wanted to see pictures. Maybe not see EVERY picture- but see a handful- ya know?

I empathize with the lack of interest feeling. I felt that way a lot in the beginning, but now everyone is really interested so things are getting better.
My FI’s cousin got married last year. After four months of constantly hearing about cake, food, dresses, flowers, wedding party, guest list issues, etc., we were all just beyond ready for the wedding to come and go. I know that sounds mean, but to be honest with you, I feel the same exact way about my own wedding. I am sick of my own wedding, lol! Anyway, when FI’s cousin got the pictures back from her wedding, we were all really interested to see how they came out, but none of us were overly thrilled. We were there. We already knew what her dress looked like, and who all showed up, etc. I don’t think I ever liked or commented any of her wedding pics on FB, but I told her I liked them in person. No one is going to be as excited about that stuff as the bride.

I get totally how you are feeling. I experienced similar after our wedding 2 years ago. Funny thing is that over the many months since I have had heaps of comments and likes.
Hugs, and remember, the photos are primarily as a reminder for you and your wonderful husband. What others think is not of much consequence.

@MamaMegs721: If it makes you feel any better – I think the new FB is brutal…. I rarely notice when my friends update/post photos anymore because the news feed and notifications are all over the place. And I’m on FB a lot. Maybe they haven’t noticed your updates? 🙂

If they’re people who don’t commit 15 minutes of every hour to Facebook, they’re unlikely to see it with all the other updates/pictures/posts/God knows what else. Unless it’s literally the first thing they see in their timeline, it’s hard to scroll through all the updates.
Don’t take it personally. If you asked me, I’d be more pissed that people just “liked” it then commented. It seems so non-committal that I’d rather they just kept their stupid “thumb up” to themselves.

Yea I’m going to just not take it personally. And I honestly wasn’t one of those brides that posted on FB or even in person really talked about our wedding. If someone asked something I would answer the question and would only keep the convo going if I felt the other person was asking cause they were interested and not just being nice ya know? I’m sure over time it will pick up….
@thejill: Your comment about the thumbs up cracked me up!

Maybe you could take a more active role. Pick some of the best shots of each guest, have them printed, and send them out. Make this about them, not about you, and do it personally. Facebook is not personal communication, and while it’s a convenient way to share photos, it’s still all about you. People really burn out after a while.
