i think you can change it so they don’t give it to any others online, but I’m not sure what to do about getting the businesses that already have your info to quit calling.  When you initially sign up at David’s Bridal there is a sort of hidden box to check if you absolutely do not want offers from any other businesses, but its hard to find.  I think the store account is the same as their online account, so you can “change the settings” on their website, but like I said, I’m not sure if that will help with the people already calling you.

They eventually stop calling. I haven’t receive d a DB-related call in a long time, and my wedding’s still a few months away.

The only thing that worked for me is when my husband (then Fi) answered the phone and told unwanted callers, “My fiance left me, and the wedding’s off.  Take me off all your lists.”  🙂

they haven’t stopped calling me yet… I think I’m stealing Mrs. Spring’s idea!

They do eventually stop calling, however, in my case, it took several months!  I tried talking to DB customer service to try to get myself removed, but after they’ve sold (her words, officially they say they don’t sell your info) your information you have to contact each individual vendor to remove yourself. If you push hard enough, DB might give you some of the vendors contact information. I know I had trouble getting them to reveal to whom they had sold my info, so I had to wait until each one called me and then say “Please remove me from your list”.  This is the main reason I’m so staunchly anti-DB.

A caterer I talked with sold my info :-/

My reply was, “Excuse me, how did you get this number? Take me off any list you have.” without responding to any of their questions.. so annoying! So, at least one by one you’ll knock them down… I will never give out my number again!

A girl I work with who has been a Bridesmaid or Best Man several times through DB had her info sold and she keeps getting calls saying that her and her fiance have won a free honeymoon in a sweepstakes. She’s not engaged. LOL. She’s called them about a million times and has gotten nowhere. DB customers beware!

I got signed up at one of those bridal fairs.  If you want to win the stuff, you have to give them your info and stupid me I did!  Well, I think I finally stopped getting emails now though I did get one a few months ago even though I’m already married.

I had the same thing happen, but since I bought my dress at DB I also had an account on their website.  I went through their website to get it to stop.  Also, when I went in the store, I asked the girl if they were gonna sell my info, she said no, so when I started getting calls, emails, etc.  I called the store and asked for her manager and kind of b*tched her out for having the associates lie right to my face.  I think it depends on the area, but mine did stop after a while.  If vendors are contacting you multiple times, I would politely, but firmly say, “not interested” or “wedding is in a different state.”  They will get the hint.

Wow, I had no idea David’s Bridal sold client information! Ugh, how obnoxious. I hate getting calls from telemarketers of ANY kind.

They kept calling me & kept harassing me to set up an appt until I told them I had already bought my dress from somewhere else.  They don’t call me anymore 🙂

I just received a “Destination Wedding” magazine in the mail earlier this week. The main headline was “Great Honeymoon locales”.

It was just a sad reminder that my day has come and gone. 🙁
