Soon, my fiancé plans on making a post on Facebook asking who is interested in attending our wedding.
I will be visiting venues with my mother next month, so I'm going to need an idea of how many people will be there.
He is mostly asking for his family, I already know who I'd like to invite on my side of town..so no Facebook post necessary for moi.
Why is he asking on Facebook and not personally?
1. He's not very social and he really doesn't know how to approach the topic nor ask the right questions (he wanted me to do it and I said no, that is YOUR family, I'll just go as far as sending them a personal message letting them know to expect an invitation)
2. He has A LOT of family members on Facebook, that's pretty much how he keeps in contact with them since he doesn't always see them. That's actually how all of them keep in contact with each other... so Facebook is the easiest way to do it.
What we planned to do is ask them if they're interested and if yes, comment with who you'll be bringing. I need comments because I'll be watching and making the list as it goes on (if that makes sense). I can almost guarantee it'll be a lot of family members (which kinda scares me, lol). Also, because they'll be commenting, it'll be easier to go from one person to the next and talk about whether they're worthy of an invite or not. We don't plan on saying anything in the comments.. those who are getting invited will get a personal message and I'll let them know to expect an invitation, etc. So, no one's feelings will be getting hurt. And no, we don't plan on posting any other statuses asking everyone to send in their RSVP's or anything like that... I want to do that personally according to who's on the list.
So, what do you guys think? Yay or nay?
I personally don't see anything wrong with this since it is a very easy way to reach everyone (especially if the post is sponsored), but any other suggestions, warnings, or advice are very welcomed!
