So FI asks me today if we have any more invites and I tell him no. He wants to invite a couple to the wedding and we having been trying super hard to get their address for the past three months (and when I say try I mean we both asked multiple times and I had mutual friends ask!). Well we finalized our guest list and I ordered STDs for everyone on the list and then proceded to make invites for each person. We finally get their address and now I get to go back and make one more invite… *sigh* and I thought I was done breathing in spray glue! Oh well:)
Has anybody else had fun trying to track down people’s addresses or had to go back and make more invites for people?

Sure. This always happens. So, make a few extra to send out to make up for the people RSVP’ing no. Can you show us what you made?

Yeah, our guest list grew by about 25 people AFTER invites were sent. FI parents just kept “remembering” people the “needed” to invite. Luckily we had planned ahead and had made more than we first thought we needed.

@Momma: Here is the link for the invites I made: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/just-finished-our-invites-pics-included
I really just think it’s funny and so FI to think that stuff can be made out of plain air. When he asked I had to bite my tounge and not tell him sure I keed extra ones up my a$$ just for cases like this! This was just after I had made a few extra and those too got used. I guess I should have made extra for the extra!!!
@MzMarzipan: Don’t you just love the “remembering”, kinda makes me want to “forget” 🙂

We sent out our STD’s a while ago, and finally got an address for a long lost Aunt last month, so I asked my FH to fill out an envelope and send it to her (I was out of town at the time)…of course he forgot (this is why I do everything..haha).
We have about 10 people that are on a “maybe invite” list and I only have 2 addresses…if I can’t get the rest by the time my invtiations arrive I guess they’ll be turned into “not invited” !
Love the invites, BTW!
