I’d do it just because that is how I communicate with the majority of my family. I swear I am about a million times closer to my sisters since they got facebook accounts (they are between 14-18 years older than I am)

Wow – I’m impressed your entire guest list is on FB!  I think creating a page is a creative way to go about it – the only issue I see is you can’t make pages private – so non-invited guests will see this page and not be able to join.  It might slight some non-guests, but – other than that – I say, use technology to your advantage!

I think it’s fine. I’d also have the problem that the majority of my guests won’t be on facebook. I think I’d also have a hard time getting my guests who were on FB to join my group if I wanted it private.

That’s actually a pretty great idea! I just might steal your creativeness 🙂

I have done a website, but it’s through the Knot, and sometimes it doesn’t work. Ugh.

I say go for it!

I actually think it’s a fun idea!  If your whole guest list is on there anyway why make a seperate website?

I think it’s a great idea if they’re all on it. Do it!

I say go for it. I would make it an event so you can make it private, but otherwise I think it’s a great idea. I definitely thought about it, but I also have the issue of not all my guests are on facebook!!

DO IT!

I’m actually not a fan for this reason: One wedding I attended the bride did this and their was NO way to escape her! Not that I think you would be a psycho about it. But its easier to say, “Oh I must have missed your call” than “I didn’t get your FB message or post” because they can see if you’ve been online and active. She wanted people to help set up and help with transportation etc. It just left a bad taste.

I’ve actually seen this before- and like the first poster said, I swear the only way to get ahold of my family ASAP is via Facebook. I just wanted to add in another vote to say go for it!

That is such a great idea! I never thought about it!! I wonder what it would be like. let us know if you do it and how people react to it?!!

I wouldn’t create a new profile.  Just create a “Page”.  We actually created a page for just the Bridal party so everyone could stay up to day on happenings/events, opinions on dresses, tuxes, etc. since many were out of town.

Because it is a “Page”, you have to invite people to join because you can choose to keep it “Private” which means if you’re not a member of the group, you won’t see it show up in newsfeed!

A lot of the wedding websites offer extra tools that are really helpful! My HS reunion just did a FB page and it actually didn’t go that well…
