I used white pages for 75% of our addresses. As long as you know the first/last name and the city/state or zip, if they’re listed, you can find them. Whoever I couldn’t find online, I had my mother or Future Mother-In-Law get for me if they didn’t already have them.

I’m not a big telephone talker.. I’m a HUGE texter & emailer though.. Luckily I had most of the family & close friends addresses from sending Christmas cards.. Everyone else I either emailed, text messaged, or sent a facebook message. The ones that were on FI’s side his mom got for me or he text his friends to get their addresses.

I did the facebook event first. I figure I’ll give people a little while to get it down on there before I start calling. I am letting everyone go to my wedding website to rsvp or they can call. Theknot.com has a thing were you can out create a wedding website and it has a countdown to the wedding date and a budget tracker, all kinds of stuff to help. Anyway it has a guest list on there where you can do everyones party and address. So I have sent the event request and then enter the info on my wedding website on theknot.com

“We” (I) facebooked people individually, then called people, then emailed people, in that order.

I plan to use the white pages online for as many as I can. I’ve also received many Facebook messages requesting my address, so I may go that route, too. For all of the tricky ones, I’ll ask the moms 🙂

It was much easier for me than tracking people down!

I voted “emailed people” because the other way I got them wasn’t listed so I didn’t think “combination” would be an accurate representations.
I got some from Future Mother-In-Law. The rest I’ve either emailed or messaged people on Facebook asking for their mailing address.

I started with my mom and Future Mother-In-Law, then I had some from when I was in Europe and mailed some post cards, then I face book messaged or emailed people individually.

I told my parents, and Future Mother-In-Law to give me all addresses for their guest’s. Anyones addresses they don’t give me, obviously aren’t that important. With my guest list almost to 500 anyone’s address they can’t give me doesn’t need to be there!

A friend of mine sent a google survey out to all of her guests. The best part of this is that you can customize the survey to all the information you need and then it’s compiled into a spreadsheet. Genius!

For my friends, I either sent a text, facebook message, or instant message. For family, I had Future Mother-In-Law give me a list of her family, and my Mom put together a list of our family (compiled from both my sisters weddings, as well as her address book).
I actually used the white pages (online of course) to find my boss’s address.

I’m not a huge fan of phone conversations either. I used white pages and facebook.
