So, someone shoudl have warned my not to try to win a wedding dress from David’s Bridal. 😀 Now I’ve got these annoying, scammy companies calling to tell me I’ve won something, and congratulations.
Dont’ offer my free nights in a hotel. Don’t offer me toasting glasses. Don’t offer me wedding bands. When I have to go to your stupid product show to get them, that is not me winning anything. That is you bribing me to buy something crappy of yours.
🙁 Bees, I’m trying to find a job… Every mystery number call I get gets my hopes up, then it turns out to be this crap.
How do you deal with this marketing bull?

First off, make a new email address. do a “your name – wedding @ gmail.com” or something like that. From there, get a new google voice number with that account. Pick a number and have it forwarded to your cell phone. Give that email out and that phone number out. That way you know everytime you get a Google call, its in regards to your wedding. When you’re done with your wedding, leave a permanant out of office message on your account and stop the call forwarding. That’s what I did! Kept my inbox clean and my phone from ringing off the hook!

“Please remove me from you phone number listings.” And anything from Wyndham Resorts I just hung up. My number got on from a bridal show and a home improvement faire. I recommend making a wedding email address and only giving that out to vendors.

Agree with both above responses. I’m sorry, I know this is SO annoying! I like the seperate email idea because you just may win something and/or get great offers and discounts on something useful to your wedding- this way you can sift through all the crap at your own convenience.

I made a [email protected] account as soon as we got engaged. My hangup is the phone calls. I didn’t think to make a google voice account. And now David’s Bridal has sold my phone number to everyone. Bah.
It wouldn’t be that bad if I wasn’t job searching. 🙁
