I’ve totally gotten these before! They’re usually from vendors and like you said, have not contributed to the site at all.

Even if there was a way to unsend the message, the person would have gotten an email alerting them to the PM anyway.

I don’t think it seems that weird. Could just be a new member/lurker…

 

I’ve definitely done this on the Knot before. I don’t feel like posting on there, so I just directly messaged the person. I didn’t realize that it looked odd…

It’s an odd message, but don’t panic. I don’t think there’s any reason to be alarmed. If they message you again and you’re still uncomfortable, just ignore them. It’s probably just spam from a vendor, or just a new member who lives in North Dakota, but is getting married in Illinois, or has a friend who lives there or something.

@emersynsmommy35: No, there’s no way to unsend a message. You can delete it on your end if it is unread, meaning that it won’t show up in their weddingbee inbox, however, a copy also gets sent to their email address, which doesn’t get deleted. So unless they don’t check the email account that they used to sign up, they should still be able to read your message even if you delete it.

@Everyone – If you ever get spammy PMs from vendors – this is VERY against our terms of use, so please report them (link to the profile of the user, if possible) in support.weddingbee.com

@emersynsmommy35: I understand that, but in my case, my profile on the Knot says a completely different state because I’m planning long distance. She could be in the same situation…

All I’m saying is, I wouldn’t worry about it too much, unless you have a reason to.
