Bridesmaid posted a photo of my dress on Facebook

I know I probably am but just wanted to hear others opinions on whether they would be sad about it or if I just need to get a grip!
Getting married soon and after trying on a lot of different dresses I finally found the one, something I never thought I would due to being very body conscious and anxious. Went back for final fitting at the weekend and took one of my bridesmaids as she wanted to see
After finishing the appointment and getting home I saw that she had posted a photo of me in the dress on Facebook (during the appointment so it had already been on an hour or two when I saw it) and tagged my partner in it saying she bets he couldn’t wait to marry me and how lovely my dress is. When I asked her to remove it her response was ‘it doesn’t matter if he’s seen it he’s a man so he will have forgotten what it looks like in 5 minutes time’. My dad had also seen it as well and it was going to be a surprise for him on the day too
I just don’t know what to do or how to feel! I am so gutted that it now won’t be a surprise to my partner or my dad. She knew how much that meant to me and the only thing I had asked for was that details of how I will look on the day were kept a surprise from my dad and partner. As I paid in instalments the dress is now fully paid for and I don’t have time to get another one and do all the alterations etc. Someone tell me I will stop feeling like this soon!

I would be angry at that one.
You don’t share pictures of someone else’s wedding dress before the wedding!
I would make it very clear on the the wedding day that NO pictures of the bridal party are to be shared on Facebook until you and/or your partner have done so!

I'm sorry but she should not be your friend or bridesmaid - I can't believe someone would do that.
Your dress is your secret until the day of the wedding.
Do you think maybe she is jealous that you are getting married because there really is no excuse for posting and tagging your dress on facebook.
Hope you have a lovely wedding day despite your so called friend 💐

This sounds like deliberate sabotage. I would tell her she's no longer a bridesmaid. Are there any ways that you could accessorise the dress differently? I know you are sad that the surprise element is gone but your wedding day will still be the first time your DP and DF see you in your dress in 3D. As long as you feel beautiful that's all that matters.

I'm so sorry. You have every right to be upset. I dont have any wisdom on how to react unfortunately. I guess you have two options, one be absolutely furious and tell your bridesmaid it was totally unacceptable which will make you and her upset and probably taint the while day for you or quietly explain to her that its upset you but try and just put it down to one of those things and move on and have a great day x

How mean of her. Honestly both your partner and dad will still get a surprise as the dress will be properly fitted and your hair and make up done. Your bridesmaid was a bitch, especially as she knew your intentions, just why?? I would make sure she has no way of misunderstanding how upset you are and that no wedding photos are to be shared until you explicitly say so.
