I just sent people a quick message via Facebook. I don’t see why it needs to be formal or why anyone would be offended by how you ask for their address.

Why would people get offended by you asking for their addresses?  “Hey Sally, hope all is well!  I’m preparing to send wedding invites, could you send me your address?”  It’ll work whether you send it via text, fb, or email.  Just don’t send an email blast asking everyone for addresses.  If they are his relatives, I’d recommend he (or your FMIL) reach out to get them.

bblue510 :  I would send out a message stating “kindly request their complete address, as you are currently updating your address book”.  That way, if you find that there is someone that can’t or realize you don’t want to invite to your wedding, you don’t have to.

This is seeing a problem where none exists. You don’t even have to mention the wedding, if you choose not to.

“I am updating our address book. Can you please send us your mailing address. Thanks so much ____”

I created a free account on Postable, and emailed all our guests the link to my Postable account. My emailed said something like,

“Hello!

I’m working on updating our address book, could you please fill out this short form? It’ll take 2 minutes. –insert link– Thank you!”

It was a great way to keep track of peoples addresses’ and when it came time to send Thank You cards, I could easily access it.

Others have texted and sent me a FB message asking for my address- I didn’t find it rude or tacky whatsoever. It got the job done for them 🙂

I asked my Future Mother-In-Law to get the addresses for me from FIs side. Made things much easier from that end.

I don’t understand, how can you ask for someone’s address in a tacky way?

“hey Mary, you live in that ghetto with all of those really crappy houses right? What’s the address again? I know it’s next to that coke dealer…”

We used a fillable Google form that asked for addresses, names, partner name, etc. 

It worked out really well, especially because we had a few couples we weren’t sure of how they wanted to be addressed (Matthew or Matt, etc and one couple where the woman uses both her maiden and married name, depending on the situation). We found it took a lot of the stress out!
