That happened to me after I went to David’s Bridal for the first time. Except all the phone calls were from some company in NY about a “free” honeymoon. I did get postcards from photographers, but no emails or phone calls from vendors.

Have you been to any bridal fairs?  That’s how I got spammed, by signing up for their ‘free honeymoon giveaway’.

When you sign up for those emails you might have clicked that you wanted emails from their partners.  If I do signup for emails and forget to unclick the partner thing then I wait till I get random spam-mails and either trash them or open them and find the unsubscribe link and hit that.  Good luck cleaning up your inbox!!! 🙂

I sent up a seperate “wedding” email account for registries, promotions, wedding shows, etc. Also that way I can keep all the info from vendors contained in one spot. We do get calls every now and then from guys trying to get us to order suits from them or whatever, but really I haven’t found it’s any worse than the amount of calls I get from charities and whatnot.

I give them an email address I don’t use often and isn’t a big deal to spam.

For me, all the spam started after I registered with the Knot. So annoying.  I wish I would have set up a seperate wedding email account for everything.

I just started getting tons of spam and I am not on The Knot.  I never use my personal email for anything I have a seperate one for sign up stuff.  This is the only site I have used it on and only because I want to be able to go to it on my cell phone.  I am wondering if some of the cell companies aren’t selling their lists.

I started getting that crap after signing up at the Knot, and more local stuff started coming after I signed up with David’s. I mark it all as spam hahaha….

I get about 20 pieces of crap emails every day but I have a special email account for wedding stuff. I figure the day after our honeymoon I’ll delete the email account and won’t have to deal with the spam anymore.
