How did you round up the addresses of all of your guests? Can I just text/facebook message them to get the address?

    My mom gave me some, MIL got us some, we asked all of our friends over text, and we asked family either in person, over text, or facebook messenger. Can't see everyone in person and this is a pretty informal process. Gather them however you can and make sure you keep up with people throughout the next few months on where they live! We have to change a total of 20 addresses before we sent invites because people had moved!

    We got the addresses for my fiance's family from his mother. For my family, I got addresses from my mom and grandmother. For our friends, we just texted them.

    That’s what I’m doing for most of them. I got a few from my sister but I’m mostly asking for them.

    My FMIL has a binder from when FBIL got married last year.
    My mom has a lot of the family addresses.
    I have a minted address collection thing. I posted a link on FB and made it only visible to those I needed the address from. If I didnt hear from them, I shot them messages directly.


    I have a couple "maybe I'll invite" addresses that I was able to look up via property tax records on our local county website.

    We reached out to family, sent texts and make phone calls. It took a little big of leg work but no big deal

    That being said, Facebook group messages asking for addresses are terrible. Please avoid this like the plague and message everyone individually.

    Our moms got them all for us and we just knew or asked our friends.

    I got some from my parents. Other than that - I reached out through Facebook for the most part. I just asked for their address.. some gave me addresses they had of others I'd be inviting (like cousins, aunts, etc). My sister gave me her guest list from when she'd gotten married years ago, but several have moved since then so just make sure they are current if you get information like that.

    I texted friends and some relatives. My mom and FMIL got family and their friends. I have an excel spreadsheet where I had all the names and then input addresses as I got them. I am also using this list to track RSVP responses now that they're coming in.

    We used our parents' christmas card address lists and FH's sister's list from when she got married a few years ago. Besides that, we just texted who we were missing.

    We will use the mom's on both sides to gather as much as they can. Then we will reach out either via text or facebook for the rest.

    For me, it was a combination of White Pages, texting / messaging friends, phone calls with FMIL, and phone calls with my mom. We were made aware of some people who might be moving in the next few months, so I know we will have to hunt them down again before invites go out Smiley xd

    My mom had all my family and his mom had his family's. I just texted groups of friends then that knew each other well/had been to each other's houses before to keep things easy and not have anyone weirded out about putting their address in a group chat. Less work/less texts haha

    Text or FB is exactly what I did to get any addresses I didn't already have.

    We were lucky enough to have a lot of family and friends addresses on hand from our Christmas Card list. For those who weren't already on it we reached out individually via text or facebook, or got addresses from my FMIL for her family.

    I had a friend who did Postable or a google form, and created a Facebook group with everyone she hoped to invite. She posted the link to her form and asked people to fill out their address. It seemed to work pretty well!

    I asked my mom and FMIL for family member's addresses I did not have. I sent text messages to most and a Facebook message to a couple of people. Both are completely appropriate.

    I just texted or messaged those I knew. Had some addresses given to me from my parents. FH's family - I asked his mom for a guest list and then a month later asked her for the addresses, so I'm not sure what all she did to get those.

    I plugged in what we had from old invites and Christmas cards. From there we delegated family addresses to our parents. Friends and co-workers we took care of ourselves.

    Not gonna lie, I did go a little stalker-isn and had to look up a friend's address on Google because she gave me the wrong zip code hahaha.
