a query for you

I am not a prude. I have no issues with potluck weddings or being informal, my line though is on Facebook invitations. There are some things that shouldn't happen, out of respect. I understand if a wedding is happening quickly, such as my bff's wedding. We had 2 weeks to plan and execute her wedding, as her boyfriend was moving north, which prompted the wedding. She went from "I"m engaged" to "I"m married, please be my wedding coordinator in one breath." We were, after all, 18 years old and oh so wise. Still, even if we had Facebook back in the day, I still would have taken time to personally call everyone - as I actually did. There is something far too informal about "hey come to my wedding" invite on Facebook. There is something very odd about having a Facebook invitation to join a page, to read about an event, and click "Yes", "Maybe" or "No" to a wedding.
If you are curious, it's my cousin's daughter's wedding - she's been living with her fiance for many years. He's the stepfather to her 4 children. She's a nice kid, but I only met her 3 times and that one time, she didn't even know me. She was hired to work at my workplace, was introduced to me and didn't even know who I was. To be fair, I hadn't seen her since she was a teen and I had to really think, to figure out how I knew her too.
But I'm curious what you all think - Facebook invite to a wedding, yay or nay?
