I wouldn’t worry about it.  You already reached out to get the addresses and already know they’re not coming.  Send to those you know and if they come back at you for not receiving an invitation, just tell them that you tried to get them.  They sound like more trouble than they’re worth, lol.

@futurefishy:  i wouldn’t worry about it. you did the best you could.

FI’s uncle never got a STD and probably won’t get an invitation either.

i asked FI numerous times for his uncle’s address.  oh well…

Ask her sister for her address if you aren’t comfortable.  either that, or send the invitation to her mother’s address.

@ykyegbride:  +1

One of our guests is travelling the world right now, so I’m sending her invitation to her parents (she doesn’t live with them).  But I know they’ll pass along.

@futurefishy:  Either send it ot the mother’s address or just ignore it all together, you asked they didn’t answer, their problem not yours.

 

It sounds like oyu lucked out they’re not coming to the wedding, they’d probably complain about everything….

@futurefishy:  Yeah thats why its best to just send it to the mom, you’ll get the complaint of “why wasn’t it sent directly to her” but you have the simple answer that an address was never provided and you still wanted to send the invite.

I think you’re being too sweet to this complaining family, I’d probably avoid sending an invite since they arleady declined 😛

Send it to the mother, had two cousins of the DH and asked oh so many times for addresses and did I get them? Hell no. Knew they weren’t coming, same situation, mailed them to the mothers, never got an RSVP, did my duty. Screw them.
