I tried my hardest to avoid asking people through facebook, text, and email but some addresses just couldn’t be found otherwise.

i emailed or fb’d friends/family for the addresses that i didn’t have.  i live in another country so how else?

i didn’t think there was proper protocol.

I have no problem with it and am sort of obssessive about etiquette.  Laughing

This was the most difficult thing! I think any way the addresses come in (even by donkey cart) they should be fine!

I got the majority of addresses from my personal address book (yay compulive Outlook usage and stockpiling Christmas card addresses) or my parents’ pesonal address book (they still send snail mail).  For FI’s family, I was lucky that one of his close cousins is getting married in the near future and had an excel spreadsheet she was willing to share with me.  The small remainder of addresses (e.g. FI’s friends) we obtained via text.

whitepages.com had all but ONE of my guests’ addresses.  It even had correct address for the people who were in rentals!

Give it a try.  🙂

Oh, we absolutely emailed/called/Facebook-ed for addresses. We did it in, like, January even though our wedding was in July because we sent save-the-dates.

The rule of thumb is to send your invites 6-8 weeks before the wedding. I think mine went out around 7 or 8 weeks.

I used, email, facebook, my mom, his mom, asking in person, carrier pigeon, etc.  There’s no one way to get this done.  In my opinion, this was the most time consuming, exhausting process.

Yes.  I’ve been stalking people on facebook for their addresses.
