Definitely avoid posting the website to your Facebook timeline, because everyone sees it. Everyone. Co-workers, acquaintances, old high school friends and people you might not even like all that much may come out of the woodwork thinking that they’re invited because they get an insider’s look at all the wedding happenings. It’s a gong show waiting to happen.

If you still want to post the info to your Facebook, do as the other pp’s have suggested and post it to a private group where only invitees are included.

I wouldn’t post my wedding Website to FB unles it was sent as a message to the individuals who were actually invited. By placing it as a “status”, everyone can see and may wonder why they weren’t invited… or just show up.

I know someone who put it as their status to remind people to RSVP, and I found that VERY tacky – again, people would wonder why they weren’t invited. Granted, they probably wouldn’t be able to to RSVP based on how the online RSVP was set up, but still. Rude.

I like what amoore2 said – make a private event/group and place it in there for people to click. That’s a really good idea!

You can absolutely post that you are engaged and excited to be planning your wedding, but I would avoid posting the website so that it can be see by anyone other than invited guests. After the wedding you can make a post about how awesome it was and how excited you are to be married!

I am very conservative on this issue to the point that I would post nothing more than maybe a relationship status upgrade to “married.”  Maybe a photo of the two of us, or a link to wedding announcement after the fact.  No reception photos, guest or bridal party  photos or anything at all that suggests “we had a party and all these people were there, but not you.”

N.O. NO. 

If you wanted such a small, intimate affair then why is heavens would you advertise it on FB? Go with your instincts.

LePetitJambon:  I don’t see the point of posting the wedding website to facebook when the people who are invited have been personally notified. Send them the wedding website. 

For your wider circle, all the site is going to do is remind them that (a) they are not invited; and (b) you are registered, so they can get you a gift for that wedding you didn’t invite them to.

I would let people know of the date (not the site) as they ask, and let them know it will be a small family affair. Once you are married, it would be appropriate to send out a marriage announcement postcard to let a greater number of people know.

If you called or emailed all of the people invited, call or email them again and explain where you are registered. If you are set on posting it to Facebook, then what I would suggest is reconfigure your settings for that post and only allow those you are inviting to see the post. I do that regularly when it comes to wedding related things, so people who aren’t invited don’t see and there aren’t any hurt feelings.

LePetitJambon:  Don’t feel bad for doing a small wedding! I planned on doing a small wedding, but then changed my mind because I didn’t want to hurt feelings. Well, it turns out that no matter what you do-people have opinions and will get offended!!

I’m back to the small wedding. The people who truely love you will be supportive and happy for you! Best wishes! 🙂

No, do not do this unless every single one of your facebook friends are invited. You can send it via private message if needed, or email. Better yet, send real invitations.

Since you’re only inviting 30, I would send them an email with the website info.

Why would anyone care a out your wedding logistics if thy weren’t invited? If the people invited know that’s all that matters. No one else needs or cares about that info so leave it off Facebook.
