I set up a “wedding only” email account to keep vendors, etc seperate from my personal email, as well as for entering wedding related contests. Someone must have sold the email lists though because I’ve been getting at least 6 emails a day (thankfully to my spam folder) saying I’ve won the British lottery or I have a distant relative who left me $2 million in his will. It’s ridiculous!!!! So annoying. I wish I could make it stop!

… I’ve been getting annoying emails too… from my mom. The DAY after I got engaged, I had 4 emails about cowboy boots in my inbox from her. Making me INSANE!

LOL Mom emails are so funny! My mom always complains about how much my aunt (her SIL) sends forwards, but she must send me at least one a day, or she’ll save them up and send 7 at a time. Ugh!!!

I got my dress from David’s back in October, and not thinking I gave them my personal email and cell phone number! I’ve been getting a weekly call from Madison WI about bridal deals, I know the number so it doesn’t get answered, but I finally picked up yesterday and told them to stop calling me, hope they listen…at least the emails have pretty much stopped!

I get those too! Unfortunately to my main email, which I’m usually fairly limited in giving to vendors, so it surprising that it got on a list. I hate those scams like, “You’re probably surprised to me hearing from me, but I’m xxxx from Nigeria, and you’re exactly the person I’ve been looking for because you are smart and open-minded. I would like to make you 46253264364 British pounds.” or whatever. blah blah blah.

I have been getting insane amounts of emails from vendors I’ve never spoken to. I think it’s because I went to two bridal shows and gave my email at the sign-in for the show. BIG MISTAKE! If you’re going to a bridal show, give them a fake email or set another one up!
To make matters worse, most of the vendors have no op-out option, so I can’t even unsubscribe from their lists….

That’s why I sent up a wedding email account. I didn’t want to deal with junk to my main email all the time. This way it’s seperated and I can delete the crap easily. I also like having all my wedding stuff contained in one place.

I’m guilty as the MOB… I confess! My only daughter, I love her to be hubby…. the excitement just propels me into stupidity at times.

My grandmother went to a bridal fair and entered me in every draw she saw.
You would not BELIEVE the amount of time-share cruises I’ve won. I’m like a freakin’ rabbit’s foot.
