Make a Facebook Group for Your Wedding Guests

By Nina Callaway, About.com Guide to Weddings

I’m sure you’re asking, “Do I really need a Facebook group for my wedding guests? Don’t I have enough on my to-do list?” Of course you don’t have to, but I think you should. It’s true that there are already plenty of ways to get information to your guests — you can include directions with your wedding invitation, destination info with your save the date, and fill your wedding website with all kinds of engagement stories and practical advice. But Facebook will help your guests send info back to you AND connect with one another. Here’s how to do it: 

On the left-hand side of your homepage, click the link that says, “Groups.” Then, the top right-hand corner will say, “Create a Group”. Fill out the basic information, and on the next page, be sure to select, “This Group is Secret.” You won’t want any of your friends who aren’t invited to know about the page, and thus feel left out.

You can then use wall posts to poll guests about things like your first dance song or dessert selections. Under discussions, start a ride share post so that far-flung guests can save money on transportation. Upload photos and videos, add hotel reservation info, and ask guests to chime in. As a bonus, your friends can start to get to know one another long before the wedding, and have a way to connect afterward.
