I’d just follow up with another email.  After that – start calling them on the phone.

If you sent them two weeks agao I would send a follow up email just saying that you understand that they are busy but you just want to make sure that the they received the message. Since you already asked them for their address you have to invite them, sometimes people don’t check email or facebook as often as we would like.

This was such a pain for us, too!  Calling worked the best.  If you can, divide up the guest list among people (your MOH, your parents), so you don’t have to do all the calling!

What about just googling them?  Or using 411locate?

For anyone that still has a landline (lots of older folks still do) try the phone book!  Honestly, I am such a child of the digital age, I totally forgot about the phone book until I looked up and saw one on the shelf above my desk at work.  I found almost hald of FI’s guest’s addresses in the phone book.

Usually people responded to us right away, especially since we asked around about 3 months before the weddings, so people knew we really needed it. We divided up the guest list: my family was my MOm’s job, my friends were my job, DH’s friends and family were his job. Also, your wedding isn’t until FEb, I guarantee at least 10% of your guest’s addresses/names/whatever will change between now and the wedding.
