Did you change your relationship status on Facebook to “engaged?” If you put your phone number on your profile, they could reach you that way.

Did you go to David’s Bridal?

Yeah…I’ve been getting mailings for wedding services since BEFORE I was engaged!  I almost think they might just start sending mail to everyone once they reach marryin’ age in this area.  But the Facebook point is probably a really good one…Facebook has way too much info about everyone with an account there.  Yikes.

Its very likely David’s Bridal sold your info to other vendors.

Did you register on theknot.com?  Or any other wedding websites?  That will do it too.

I am furious with Davids Bridal…not only was their store a mess, I literally walked out after trying on two crappy dresses, only to be bombarded with emails and phone calls for the next two months from wedding vendors.  I finally asked one where they got my name and she said Davids Bridal, which pissed me off because I distinctly remember checking the box saying I do not wish for my information to be shared.

It does die down eventually, but it was bad for a while. I would start telling them you eloped so they’ll leave you alone.

Yup, I’ve also heard this about Davids Bridal. I did not go there though. Once I changed my status on FB I got constant advertisements about wedding/weight loss products and now that it’s married there are different advertisements.

Don’t even get me started on David’s Bridal. I went there ONCE over a year ago and tried on two dresses but didn’t buy. The sales associate asked for my info “just to keep on file.” When she asked for my phone number, I told her I only have a cell, and that I would prefer to not give it. She assured me that they only needed it to “keep on file” and that “no one would call” me. She even wrote “DO NOT CALL” in large letters at the top of the form.

Since then, I have received countless unsolicited calls from David’s Bridal, Men’s Warehouse, and all sorts of wedding vendors. They call ALL THE TIME, multiple times a day, even while I am at work. It is my cell phone, so I have no way of avoiding them. They don’t leave messages, and when I do answer, they hang up on me.

I am so disgusted with David’s Bridal and what they do, that I refused to purchase my wedding dress or any bridesmaid dresses there. Their shady business practices are earning them quite a bad reputation. Ask around, you’ll see. I’m definitely not the only one they’ve done this to, and I’m sure I won’t be the last.

it’s definitely david’s bridal. I didn’t give them ANY info b/c i did not want to hear from vendors for the rest of my life. Shame on them for being so untrustworthy!
