i just discovered the most helpful tool to one of the stresses in our wedding planning process: hunting down those addresses!
doing an Internet search, I landed on a site called “Spokeo”. It is paid (15.00 for 3 months access) but for the headaches we were going through, this is well worth it! The addresses are accurate!
just thought I’d offer the tip to my fellow bees!

Personally I find that site a little creepy. If someone doesn’t want to give me their address, they’re not being invited… pretty simple 🙂
I was stressing before to get them from my FMIL and FI, but I resolved to my above statement and stress is gone 🙂

I hear ya with the creepy factor, but whether we choose to use it or not, the info is there and available 🙂 we have been asking for addresses from FMIL for their side of the family for over 4 months and haven’t received one! we know who to invite, just don’t have their contact info to even ask them for their address. Spokeo was the answer to taking the issue into our hands!

@Megnolia: I had the same issue. It turned out to be a passive agressive move by his mother. She thought my sending STD a year+ in advance was stupid so she was avoiding giving me anything.
I told him that it was fine, the point in sending that early was for HIS family in Lebannon/Australia etc. and when she finally gave me addresses in November (asked in March) I simply told her it was too late and the STD had gone out, and they would only recieve an invite now 🙂
..And she’s modified the list since then and not given addresses but again its a, if you do not want to give it to me, I’m not inviting them and paying for it, plain and simple 😛
