I signed up to go to a wedding show with David Tutera and now I’m just getting all types of spam in my email. Anyway, David’s Bridal has been blowing me up with the Vera Wang release. So I checked my email and noticed David’s Bridal now offers photography services!
So I went to their website to see how they are pulling this off. Wow! They offer everything! Dresses, bridesmaids, prom, invites, gifts, and now photography!

@Miss Tattoo: It is crazy. I went in one day with family to try on dresses casually. I must have given them my contact info and I was seriously stalked by DB and other random companies for months. It’s died down now (maybe because I’m getting close), but I was getting lots of email and calls randomly from all sorts of vendors.

Davids has been the wal-mart of weddings! I can only imagine the spam you will be getting now for the photography!
I got so many emails & things in the mail from them and people they clearly signed me up for it was ridiculous! And don’t even get me started about the phone calls from menswear vendors! How many times do you have to tell someone you are getting married out of the country with 6 people until they get the hint you don’t need tuxes!

Oh my god. I got SO MUCH spam mail/e-mail/calls after going to DB. I wish I would have given them fake information.
Oh, and you should probably brace yourself for the s#$^storm that is about to hit you over the thread title. People are very sensitive about the DB=Walmart thing.

eugh, it’s awful. I get calls all the time and have “won” numerous trips and prizes. I haven’t collected any of them and it’s just awful the amount of emails I get from these companies per day.

@zippylef: I totally agree that people are so sensitive about the DB= Walmart thing! But I think in the sense that she’s using the analogy is true– and she’s not saying it in an insulting way. So let’s hope no one flips out…
Anyway, I went to David’s Bridal and specifically asked if they would sell my info. They said no (not that I believed them) but I haven’t noticed much more spam in my e-mail than normal. And I haven’t gotten any calls. I guess should count myself as lucky! I hate that crap.

@mishelleez: Oh well. How many bridal shops do you know that sells gifts, invites, and photography services?

Ugh, they sold my phone number. I gave them an old email!
And I just gave them my info when I ordered a bridesmaid’s dress.
I also think you may get a lot of people who are overly sensitive about the title. But I still think it’s accurate.

@Miss Tattoo: I ALREADY thought they were the wal-mart of weddings before the photography. They even had DJ’s set up trying to sell services when i went.

@lilyfaith- they sold your phone number? are they allowed to do that? I feel like that’s personal information… :/

Their emails are annoying, glad I didn’t give them my real email addy. BUT, I’m sorta bummed that I won’t get a chance to try on the Vera dresses (at least not to buy one).

ewwww… i’m glad i gave them a spam email and a google phone number. they wanted SOOO much information from me and my bridesmaids just for trying on bm dresses!! it seems like they want to be a one stop shop; the ones around where i live are next door to mens warehouse and as we were trying on dresses they kept pushing us to get tuxes next door and advertised how they could match the colors perfectly. i hated my experience there.
