@MissCalifornia:  I’ve never had this happen. Are they just fishing for personal information then?

I’ve had the same problem. David’s Bridal is to blame. I think you have to tell each company individually to stop calling you.

To bad my number was sold to every vendor under the sun…

I’ve stopped answering my phone unless I’m expecting a call

Certain areas if you request to be removed from a mailing list they must legally remove you right away but others Im not sure. I always ask to speak with a manager.

Get a Google Voice Number!  I have one and I give it to anyone who asks for my phone number or where I am required to give my number!  Google Voice actually has a really good spam filter.  You can also set the privacy function where the caller has to say their name before it will even ring through to you.  Then you can choose to accept the call or not.  

Best part….TOTALLY FREE!

Also, spam filter works on texts!

I got the phone calls and texts a bit too. They stopped after my wedding date, at least!

I bought my tickets through an online deal. I made sure I didn’t give my info out at the bridal show. I got a shit tons of calls and emails starting the following week after the show. I was LIVID!!!! I called the phone number of the bridal show event planner and laid into her. She said they must have got my number from when I purchesed my tickets online. There was NO BOX that said to uncheck to opt out of emails. I assumed I was safe. WRONG! I had to speak to EACH vendor and let them know to stop contacting me. What a pain in the ass that was. Moral of the story, do not give out your phone number or email address to anyone, they will abuse it.

If a third party took your number and didn’t allow an opt out, the individual vendors could still be breaking the law if you’re on the Do Not Call list. For anyone you’ve done business with though, well, your stuck with the calls for a couple of years.

@MissCalifornia:  Oh I know what you mean then! I’ve had similar calls with Mary Kay and similar companies. Ugh, I hate those calls and I always feel so pressured…

I like what @dallasbride2012:  said, haha, that’ll sure get them to stop

Try writing beside or under all your phone numbers  – not to give, rent, or sell.

Sorry that prople have to go through this kind of “junk calls”
