Hi everyone! My FMIL told me about one of her friends who somehow did a wedding countdown clock on her Facebook page. FMIL thought this was super cute and wanted me to look into doing it but I wanted some input from you guys. I feel like this could be annoying for a lot of people especially because, as we all know, no one is as excited for our weddings as we are. I'm also friends on facebook with lots of old co-workers or random people from high school that aren't invited to the wedding so I really don't know how a countdown clock would go. Thoughts? Has anyone does this, and what were people's responses to it??
While it would be cute for you to see, I definitely think it could get old real quick for some of your friends. I would also worry it could cause drama because some people might expect to be invited that actually won't be invited.
I personally wouldn’t. I wouldn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. Those who aren’t invited might get upset that they can’t come, those who are waiting to be married or recently had a breakup might be hurt by seeing it, etc.
I agree about not doing a countdown on FB for all the reasons mentioned -- especially annoying the heck out of people and creating drama around who is invited & who's not. Daughter's wedding website had a countdown, so once the STDs went out with the website address & password, any guest who wanted to visit the website could see the countdown. Honestly, I don't think many people besides the B& G, and maybe their moms care that it's "only 300+ days till the wedding!" To the couple and their immediate family it's exciting, but to the rest of the world it isn't something they really care about.
