You know when a friend of yours is tagged in an album, you can sometimes see the rest of the album?
An acquaintance of mine was recently tagged in a wedding album (he was a GM). I have no idea who the bride is but I’m in LOVE with her earrings.
Do you think it would be weird to send her a message, saying I saw the album and would like to know where she got her earrings?
Don’t want to be a creepy stalker – but I need earrings!!! 🙂

nah. weirder things have happened through facebook. you’re complementing her style and taste – not asking to lick her feet or anything.

I would go ahead and do it. There is no reason for her to act weird, she is the one with the public photo albums!

I think if you introduce yourself as knowing “so-and-so” and how you were admiring the beautiful pictures, and your wedding is coming up…

I say go for it!
She has allowed her album to be public or at least open to friends of friends so if she isn’t happy about you contacting her at least she will know to make her albums restricted 😉

Not at all! I’d be flattered if someone did that. Agree with 7SEVENJ9 though, just introduce yourself, compliment her style, and ask if she could point you in the right direction!

Go for it! I agree with the others. Introduce yourself first, then compliment her style. I think she will be flattered.

I agree with everyone too. Absolutely contact her and compliment her earings and ask where she got them from. Everyone who has planned a wedding gets used to sharing the details of the event. I think she would be flattered.

I would never do it, but it’s just not like me. I’m pretty reserved.
That said, if someone contacted me like that, I would 100% respond, even though I would think it was kind of strange.
Who cares what she thinks of you? It’s not like she knows you or her judgment will affect you! The worst that can happen is she doesn’t tell you, and she’s definitely not going to tell you if you don’t ask!

Oh no, I’d totally do it and if a girl contacted me I’d feel flattered too! Agree though, do introduce yourself and how you came across the album because of the friend’s photo. Good luck!

This is the beauty of social media! You’re not a compleeete stranger- you have a valid, trusted connection. I encourage you to contact her and ask 🙂

I say go for it as well. You’ve got nothing to lose!

I found my bridesmaids necklaces on another bride’s facebook page (she’s a friend of a friend but I don’t know her at all). I decided I would search local stores and online for two weeks and if I didn’t locate them then I would contact her. It took me 45 minutes online to find them…. There aren’t a ton of stores around our area so I could basically narrow it down to 10 places and actually found them on the fourth website I tried. Had I not found them online or in a store I would have totally contacted her (or have my friend contact her).
