Is there anyone at all that you know who may have their addresses?If not I’d try to call the ones that you can and I’d probably send one more email to the ones who are out of country and if they still don’t respond you’ve done your best! It’s really frustrating, I know.

I’d probably just drop it at that point then 🙁 You’ve done all that you can do to get the information, she can’t be offended for not getting an invitation! It’ll be sad to not have your cousin there, especially if you’re close, but it’s one less person to pay for!

Can you task anyone else in your family to hunt down that cousin?  Do they have any siblings and/or parents that are coming, etc?

Not everyone checks their email regularly.  I’d try to call.  Maybe someone in your family has a number if you don’t have it.  If you really want someone to attend try sending them a save the date via U.S. mail.  You don’t have to have anything printed, just print whatever you sent via email it.  In these efforts I’d tell them a firm deadline for giving you what you need.  

If you still can’t get in touch with them, then you have done your best.  That’s all you can do.

@SweetRose2011: Ugh, that is so annoying! If they are family members, I would just be patient and after a while send another e-mail. For this e-mail, I would put information about the wedding (same as what would be on the STD) and leave it at that. If it’s friends… this is what I did: I sent a a few group facebook messages asking for addresses. I know people don’t check facebook all the time so I gave it a few weeks. After the fourth week (I had lots of time) there were a few stragglers… I wrote a message saying thanks to everyone who had given me address and I was so excited to see them at the wedding. I told the other ones that I assumed they could not attend the wedding and was sorry they could’t make it, but thanks anyway. I immediately got like 5 responses with address… and the other 10 or so I just deleted from my wedding guest list. I can’t wait forever 🙂
