Looks awesome!  We used a similar program to make a reply form on our wedding website where our guests can tell us their travel and hotel plans.  (Our wedding is basically a destination wedding as 95% of the guests will be from Out of Town.)  I figured the form would give us all the info we needed for delivering Out of Town bags to our guests.  Plus, we can use the replies of where people are staying to guage interest in a trolley shuttle to the wedding. 

I wish I had known about google forms though.  Does the google form generator allow you to imbed the form into a website?  The program we used was definitely more complicated, and sometimes the form crashes for no apparent reason 🙁  Google always makes things easier.

That’s BRILLIANT! Why have I never heard of this until now? Man, it would have saved me some time searching through endless papers finding my friend’s addresses. But I have my system now….

Thanks for posting, this is awesome! I just tried it – very simple! This is so much easier than trying to type up everyone’s info or cut and paste from e-mail. I added separate forms for the street, city and state so that I can use the spreadsheet to do a mail merge and print envelopes/ labels.

So cool! What else can we do with google?

Forgot to add:

I like that we can make the fields required so that we don’t end up with street addresses and no zip codes.

There’s a cute new website called Postable designed only to gather mailing addresses http://www.postable.com It’s pretty great, it’s Free and you can export as excel and print labels too.

I used Google Docs and Google Sites for everything for our wedding. I love how Google Sites seemlessly integrates Google Doc forms and spreadsheets.

In addition to using a form similar to OP’s, I also created an RSVP form, which dumps into our RSVP spreadsheet.  It’s giving us a running tally of who will be needing transportation, going to the Thursday night baseball game, etc.

I’ve made a copy of our RSVP form for anyone who wants to play around with it – it’s not our real RSVP, so go nuts!!
