I have recieved several pm’s from people promoting their business. It is starting to get a little annoying because I have already booked everything I need. I come on here to check out DIY projects, advice, and I love reading people’s posts. I am not on here looking for a dj, photographer, or photobooth company.
Is this normal? Does this happen to you regularly?

That is strange. I haven’t gotten any messages from businesses.

I haven’t gotten any…maybe it’s just your area though?

Yes, I’ve gotten some and it’s annoying as all heck!

I am getting them too.. It’s annoying for me too since I am getting pm’s from NYC vendors (I live here), but I am actually getting married in upstate NY and obviously won’t be using NYC vendors!

LOL that’s crazy that people are already asking to buy your dress. Did you say you were planning on selling it?

I haven’t gotten any! It’s definitely not supposed to happen – you might want to try posting about it in the Support forums!

I’ve gotten one, and one girl who wanted to buy my dress. So far so good.

I’m not a business, and I don’t charge anyone, but if people are looking for help/advice with finding a venue, or are wanting some ideas for their budget wedding, I sometimes offer to help, because I have a huge list of saved places with all kinds of wedding items that are inexpensive, and I like to help people. 🙂

@[email protected]: Ditto on that. You have been super helpful

I’ve only received one. At first I was a little annoyed, but since the message contained information on other vendors too (the vendor listed herself first, then a bunch of others), I’ve actually found it rather helpful. The message was very polite and not in any way offensive.
I’m a supporter of the entrepreneurial spirit, so as long as I don’t get inundated with “crap”, I’m fine with it.

That’s fine. However some of the people who pm me have never posted anything. Like they just created an account to promote themselves.
It’s one thing to offer suggestions when someone if looking for it but it’s different when you haven’t asked and they only come on to pm people.

I’ve only had 1 the entire time I’ve been around.
