I signed up for a wedding show here in a few weeks and I swear every photographer, hall, DJ, videographer, bridal botique, ect in a 50 mile radius has sent me an email. I don’t even consider their services. Is that wrong of me? I feel like any vendor who signs up to get leads isn’t going to be my taste. Like I wish Bella Photography (Davids Bridal) and Studio Blue (Weddingclickers) would stop emailing me! I even took my email off the list and I still get them! Ugh!

Oh you’re so not alone. I won’t go with a vendor on principle if they spam me.

I wouldn’t use them either. I don’t care WHAT your business is; you spam me, you get reported as spam to my e-mail.

I’m still getting spam from restaurants that were at the one bridal show I attended, pitching their ability to cater a rehearsal dinner. Um, (1) I got married over three months ago. It’s a tad late for a rehearsal dinner. (2) I didn’t even use my real email address to register for the show, so I have no idea whatsoever how they got my actual user name.

Oh, I totally feel you. I won’t hire any vendor who spams me on principle alone. If I gave you my email, fine. If you got it off some list, you can f right off.
I love when I get mail at the house from a vendor with my first name GROSSLY misspelled. Hm, methinks you did not actually get my contact information from ME…

- Wedding: March 2010 - Calamigos Ranch
I mostly ignore, but a few times I’ve pointed out to them that I won’t do business with spammers. Of course, I have only done that when I’ve received a wave of spam *after* the wedding. A few months ago I started getting a bunch of emails from photographers, so I responded to a few of them by letting them know that whatever email list they have purchased is out of date and they’ve been ripped off, because I am already married and out of the market for a photographer. If I were still in the market, I would not hire anyone who sent me unsolicited messages. Most of them apologized!

I wouldn’t all out ignore them if I was somewhat interested in what they offered. It’s really irritating for me b/c I get a lot of local offers but I’m getting married 14 hours away so I’m not able to use it anyway.

I recently got a mail from the Hyatt Hotel, offering their wedding packages to me. WTF?? I couldn’t believe it. I never contacted them, i have no idea how they got my email. As much as i love the Hyatt, i think this is totally nonserious for a hotel chain that has such a big name and is known for perfect service ( at least in my experience), and i would definately never consider someone who spams me, this is totally inacceptable in my opinion.

Same. It’s just disrespectful. I kept getting an email from a limo company “Dear so and so, it was nice to see you at this year’s wedding show and even though your wedding is still quite a ways off…” Go away! I saw you at the show, if I was interested I would call you! Sheesh. UNLESS I signed up to receive special email deals, ok, fine.

Eh, you’re not obligated to consider them. To be fair, all the vendors there signed up to get leads though.
If their emails are bothering you, maybe you could email back and just ask them to stop?

I hate places that give away or sell your information. Some places I’ve been getting emails from and never requested any information from.
