Yes, I got a ton of this. I may change my phone number after the wedding. :-/

I am! I gave my info to ONE store, and I keep getting trash in the mail. I was getting calls from the store, too (David’s) every few days until I read them the riot act and demanded that they stop calling, and they did! I still get piles of junk mail, though. I love laughing at the terrible DJ and photography postcards I get.

Yes, I went to a bridal show and I thought I was being smart when I created a separate email for all the vendors to contact me. Well, I forgot to sign up for the tickets with that email and I used my reg. email. Now I am getting Wedding Spam-O-Rama. Plus the calls.

I am getting postcards nearly everyday. It is getting annoying and I can’t figure out where they are getting my information, I have not been at any shows or signed up for mailing lists that I know of, I hae only secured my vendors. And, I’m getting married in another state…and they know it…it’s weird.

UGGGGGGGHHHH!!! My best friend and I went to Signature Grand Bridal show and i only gave my information to them to buy my tickets. They needed my address to verify credit card…. WELL i have officially been whored out and I am over it. Late night phone calls… weird voicemails… all the mail… its ridiculous! I am definitly thinking about changing my number but i cant change the address. I called Signature Grand to get me off their list. They said they would but i still receive stuff yet not as much.

YES! I had a great experience buying my dress at David’s Bridal….until they sold my number to everyone under the sun. UGH! If I get one more call from The Pros I might lose my mind!

Soon2BeMrs…you are probably right. I hadn’t thought of my vendors doing it. That’s so not cool!

Yes, David’s sells your info to EVERYONE.  I was especially annoyed by the “You’ve won… all you need to do is…” crap.

One thing I’ve noticed is that most of the spam has stopped since the wedding.  I’m guessing that they know your wedding date and don’t want to waste time on you after the wedding.

I had this happen and it was really annoying.  I know that a lot of mine came from David’s–who sells your info to TONS of different vendors.  Also, if you go to any sort of wedding fair, often you get your info out there too.  My best reccomendation is to use only an email address (and a new one that you don’t care too much about) instead of giving your phone number or address to anyone!

I went to one bridal show and was stupid enough to sign up for the giveaway.  I got married almost 6 months ago and I still get emails for wedding stuff!
