I got the majority of them from my mom and fmil. Or I just asked my guests for their mailing address. They were all quite happy to give it to me asap.

I divided the guest list into 4 lists and assigned them this way: My friends (me), FI’s friends (him), my mom’s side of the family (my mom), my dad’s side of the family (my dad) and my FI’s family (FMIL).

We each had our own methods. Fiance and I texted our lists, my mom sent a mass email and copied me, my dad called them, and I don’t know what my Future Mother-In-Law did.

I got addresses from my grandmom and Future Mother-In-Law.  I asked my friends theirs and saved it in my phone.  We don’t have a lot of guests so it was fairly easy.

We collected them via phone, texting, email, and FB messaging.

I had a lot of them already from when we sent out Christmas cards, but the rest I got at a family gathering, FB messages, and FI’s mom and stepmom.

A combo of what I already had in google for Christmas cards, facebook and email got all of ours together.  Everything is stored in a google spreadsheet that Fiance and I both have access to update.

I made an excel spreadsheet then when I was printing labels I just did a mail merge. 

I did the following columns:







Total RSVP Count

Entree Selections (split into my 2 choices)

Gift Description

Thank You Sent


That way, I could keep track of everything all on one sheet– it worked perfectly.

I did mine over email and Facebook, but I think WeddingWire has a function for address collecting…

Hi, I used postable.com, so easy, one email out to everyone with the link and then they followed tO complete all the info and it generated a spreadsheet and address book for me. Highly recommend!!!

We don’t have a huge list to send to , but several are out of state.  We’ll be messaging people thru email , text, facebook , a camping forum we’re on, and asking friends etc but I also set up two google email addresses …   one for when we make invitations for people to RSVP and another to use for any things like emailing an invoice or signing up on registries etc.
