    I hadn’t discovered the Bee when I was engaged, so I’d sometimes post questions on my Facebook, like suggestions for the father-daughter dance and things like that. Then I put up photos when we got them back.

    I have a co-worker and FB friend who is constantly posting her Pintrest wedding ideas, and she isn’t even engaged! She finds some interesting things once in awhile, but sometimes her entire wall is just her Pintrest wedding ideas.

    I share absolutely nothing… If someone was going to just look at my profile without some digging, they wouldn’t even know I’m engaged.

    I recently changed my profile picture to one from our engagement shoot (but it’s just me), and linked to the photographer’s fb page. If they go there, they can then get to her blog and figure out it’s an engagment shoot and who I’m engaged to. That’s as much personal information as I’m willing to give on facebook. Maybe I’ll do a wedding shot later, but I’m not sure.

    i did not share anything. we actually waited a month and a half to post our engagement because my Darling Husband wanted to have time to tell people on the phone and in person. i made a few jokes about wedding planning on facebook but usually to share my bridesmaid’s hilarious quotes. there were probably 3 posts regarding planning in 8 months and they were all just jokes. one of them was when a bird pooped on me.

    @Artificial-Sweetener:  LOL no option for me. I think if I were to plan I would not post so everyone could see but I would share bits and pieces with certain people, but not my entire  Facebook friends list

    Nope, haven’t shared anything as of yet. I might end up sharing engagement photos (if we take them) and wedding pictures. But some of my family is on FB and I probably won’t invite them, so it might be best for me to share after the fact.

    Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Why? I know that most people don’t care.

    @Artificial-Sweetener:  i did a few things here and there…with nothing positive to come from it. Ive told my sister, mom, friends, aunts, and people i work with. NOTHING except from one girl i work with was positive. She is my boss so we really dont talk much because of that but, she does show me things on her cell that she had seen and thought it would be great for my wedding. after a few times of my own family downing my ideas, i got quiet about my wedding plans with family, just FI/Boss/ and all the bees….

    ive even made a second Bee page to hide more private questions from family and friends because they also use this page… i hate negativity

    i shared stuff until we decided it would be a destination wedding. i didn’t want to rub it in some people’s faces that they weren’t getting an invite. if it had been at home and bigger, i would have shared more.

    I used the life event feature to share that I got engaged and got married and I posted an album of wedding pics when I got them.  I like to do my oversharing on an anonymous forum (hello WB!).  For me, more than that is too much.
