To feel sorry for this bride to be?

Last week I went on an email account of mine I very rarely use to find 4 emails with the subject URGENT!! I obviously opened them they're for lady who is due to be getting married 20/11/2015 and apparently there is issues with her theme and 'love letters' whatever they are.

The e-mail says that they've tried contacting her mobile number multiple times but it goes straight to voicemail and they don't have the grooms contact number.

I feel really sorry for this lady and it's actually playing on my mind, I've rang the 'events planner' and informed them it's the wrong email address yet they emailed me again this morning saying they cannot continue to organise the wedding without her getting in touch by the end of this week!

I don't even have Facebook or anything or I would try and find her and let her know!

What do I do? I'm probably being completely unreasonable to be thinking so much about it!

What part of the country are you in? Does the email give details of the venue?

I would email again stating you are not the person they are looking for and to stop contacting you. Can you look her up on Facebook?

Does anybody you know have Facebook? Or I'm sure someone on MN would spread the word on their Facebook/twitter account?

Email them back and say it is wrong address. Assuming it is genuine they will be able to contact them via the venue or electoral roll, or bride will contact them to confirm soon. Then block the sender and think no more of it. Probably speculative or bride has gone elsewhere and they are touting for her business.

Does the email have a company address could you phone them ? It sounds weird is it maybe spam

Shockers Mon 26-Oct-15 10:35:39

Actually, if you ring them back, you could suggest they phone the venue themselves to get the bride's number.

I can't believe a wedding planner hasn't taken phone numbers as well as an email address!

The love letters are those huge illuminated ones that say...LOVE!

DH is in the business wink.

MrsJayy Mon 26-Oct-15 10:35:51

Oh you did phone them sorry

How does a bride to be not speak to her events planner pretty much constantly in the final run up to her wedding?

I'm trying to figure out how this could be a con.

AliceInUnderpants Mon 26-Oct-15 10:35:58

Oh, I would be worried too about them not being able to contact her. I would assume the bride would contact the planner when she hasn't heard from her though?

I'd be happy to put the word out on Facebook if you have a name, location.

Shockers Mon 26-Oct-15 10:36:57

Oh, they did have her number.

I'm in Liverpool the venue is in Worcestershire

My sister is going to try and spread the word on Facebook and Twitter.

My mum thinks maybe the weddings been called off and the lady doesn't want to face cancelling it.

The venue may kniw who the supplier of the love letters are (I had to give my venue a supplier list). Could you then contact the supplier to find out who the bride is?

I'd be the same OP. Last week, I phoned Argos to let them know that they'd mistakenly sent me a customer resrvation number and I was worried the actual customer would miss out. blush

It just doesnt sound right i too am trying to think of a way it could be a con <cynical> i think what a pp said about the bride enquiring and they are touting for bussiness. Is it easy to get email addresses wrong? I would just block the emails and forget about it a bride would contact her own services surely

WhoKnowsWhereTheTimeG0es Mon 26-Oct-15 10:47:45

I suspect spam, I simply can't believe they wouldn't have an address. They haven't got a premium rate phone number I hope.

Shutthatdoor Mon 26-Oct-15 10:52:25

This screams spam to me.

You've done all you need to do. Reply to the email to reiterate that you are not the bride, and then leave it, really. Don't go spreading details of someone you know nothing about on social media.

I think you are over thinking this.

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Mon 26-Oct-15 11:01:19

Ynbu. You feel what you feel. But personally I would be losing any sleep over whether or not a stranger's wedding was going to pan out right or not.
I've got enough worries of my own.

Spotifymuse Mon 26-Oct-15 11:04:02

It's probably spam.
And you ( and your mother) are definitely over thinking this.
Delete the emails and forget it.

WhoKnowsWhereTheTimeG0es Mon 26-Oct-15 11:04:24

And no to spreading it on FB, in the unlikely event that it's real that would be a gross invasion of privacy.

Gileswithachainsaw Mon 26-Oct-15 11:05:02

Surely stuff has been emailed before? they can't just have discovered the wrong address hmm

and surely all numbers would have been given

pearpotter Mon 26-Oct-15 11:05:25

It's probably phishing. Ignore and delete.

It's either spam or the 'bride' has ducked out of the wedding. Seriously, do you think even the most laid-back of brides would be out of contact to their wedding planner a month before their wedding?

You sound lovely. But honestly, you are over-thinking.

And please don't put it on facebook - supposing this person doesn't want to be found?
