A "Cardinal Rule" of Facebook?

<< < (2/11) > >>

MariaE:
At my sister's wedding, somebody posted photos from their cell phone immediately following the service, because they were so excited they just had to squee :)

I don't think it's a problem as long as it's informal photos you've taken yourself. If you've somehow gotten hold of the formal wedding photos, then it's a completely different matter.

Katana_Geldar:
We didn't mind as we wanted to see them, and it was three months until our professional ones arrived.

lady_disdain:
I wouldn't share pictures of the ceremony, first dance or anything that is specific to the happy couple. I wouldn't think twice before sharing photos of the guests dancing or greeting the couple - in other words, photos that are centered on me and my friends at that wedding.

I agree.  DH and I left for our honeymoon only a matter of hours after the wedding.  We were excited to see some informal pictures from our friends up on facebook almost immediately.  Since we were on a cruise and had to pay an arm and a leg for internet service, we stayed off of facebook entirely but checked our email once in the middle of the week.  Our professional photographer was super fast and had already sent us a link to all the formal photos, with editing, so we forwarded that link to our close family members.  By the time we got home, I was really annoyed to find that SIL had posted the link to our professional pics on facebook for everyone to see -- while it's not that I didn't want them to be shared, they weren't hers to share.

My wedding is in 2 weeks, and I wouldn't dream of dictating how my guests treat it on social media. They are sharing their experiences, not dictating mine.

That said, I might feel different if they post a photo with a caption like, "Omgosh, look at the world's ugliest bride at the stupidest wedding ever!" But I do not plan to invite anyone like that!
