I would send the cards to whoever you’ve got addresses for now.  Actually since your wedding isn’t until September you could wait until you get your dad’s guest list if you want to send them all at once.

Send them to whoever you have. You can safely wait as late as March (or even later!) to send Save-The-Date Cards, so just send the rest when you get them.

I agree with the girls. Send some now and send some later. This way you don’t feel too much stress.

I don’t know how to make him give you addresses, but check pipl.com and zabasearch.com for addresses if you already know the names/cities. Better than online yellow or white pages.

I feel your pain – I’m in the same boat, sending out VistaPrint magnet Save-The-Date Cards with my holiday cards. And I’m scrounging to get the last few addresses. In your case, it sounds like these are *Christmas* cards, rather than *holiday* cards, so I’m assuming there’s no need to get them in the mail prior to the start of Hanukkah. Therefore, while I totally feel for you and understand your frustration, you don’t HAVE to get them out this week. 

I would send out the ones you’ve managed to address, and get back in touch with your dad and Future In-Laws and really stress the situation. I’d emphasize that you are aware that your wedding isn’t for quite a while, but you want to make sure that all of the people they want to invite have enough time to make travel arrangements. And if they still don’t get back to you until after the holidays, then you’ll need to decide whether to not send Save-The-Date Cards to those people, or send them without holiday cards. For those people, “saving” on postage isn’t really an issue, since they’ll either be getting a holiday card + STD, or just an STD, but it’s not like you’ll be sending them anything twice, since you (annoyingly) don’t have their addresses!
