Just say no pics please. Its not a crazy request. They can post a status update without a picture, right?

YES! Just ask! That should be no problem and it’s a valid concern. They could be so excited to be getting ready with you, and FB is such a part of them that they wouldn’t think twice about posting morning of pictures. I think asking them not to until afterwards is totally fine, and I’m SURE they won’t be offended. They’re your best friends after all.

You can ask but be prepared if they forget and do post.  You can’t dicate what other people put on their FB page.

Why not just say you want the “getting ready” time to be special and since the photog will be there taking professional pics, you want to minimize phone use while you’re all getting ready?

Just politely ask them not post pictures on facebook. But if you seriously think that they wouldn’t oblige you can always see about having someone that you trust to hold their phones for them until the reception, but that might be borderline extreme..

I agree with the other bees…I would just say you’d prefer no pics of the wedding/reception (or anything to do with it) until AFTER.  As in, the next day.  If this is something you really want, make sure you’re clear and tactful about it.  Otherwise you’ll have a bad taste in your mouth, but you can’t blame them if they didn’t know.
