If I had an email for a member of a family I sent an email asking one family member for all of their siblings or childrens addresses. My Mother-In-Law was great when she handed over her list of their family friends and relatives, she had everyones name, address, phone and email address on a digital spreadsheet. All I had to do was download it. She also gave me a hard copy, which I was glad I had, when our computer crashed a month before the wedding.

No one questioned why I was asking for their mailing address- I think most of them assumed. One friend in particular- “Hey, I need your address so we can send you a wedding invite.”

I just went ahead and asked people, and if they asked me why I told them. Most people just handed it over, though!

For the facebook subset we just asked for people’s addresses, noone really asked why. I think they assumed why we were asking. I also hunted a bunch down if I had visited them before, its important to look them up online if you do this because I learned the hardway that street addresses and mailing addresses aren’t always the same.

People probably know you are engaged so they will just assume.  I didn’t tell anyone why.  I just sent text or FB messages.  I sent each person an individual one b/c I know some times on FB or iphones when people respond it automatically responds to all.  I didn’t want to risk people having their address go out to people they might not know.

I never said why. I just asked for the address point blank. If they ask why, you can always say your finally getting around to updating your address book. Let them piece it together.
