      I didn't, I just sent out a mass email to everyone asking to reply with their mailing address and I put my parents in charge of getting the addresses for the people they wanted me to include.

        I got a lot of addresses from my cousins that got married in the last couple of years and then everyone else I emailed individually to get them.

          i got addresses for the few friends i invited, FI for his, my dad for his side of the family and my mom for hers. I gave FI, mom and dad a "deadline" and those addresses they didn't get for me by then where not included in the invite list.

            if you're going to send them an email anyway, why not just ask for their address? no need to over complicate things!

              I did the same thing since I already had everyone's email address. I sent a mass email & to keep my responses organized, I just kept a spreadsheet & as a guest emailed me their address, I updated the spreadsheet. It was very easy.

                Hahahaa, sometimes we really do overcomplicate things, don't we. I would send a mass email asking for their address and then update the spreadsheet yourself.

                If you reallllly want to have them enter it right into the file, you can create it on http://docs.google.com/ and then send an email out to have people update online.

                I would think it would be easier to maintain control though b/c people might be put off my the google doc if they don't know how it works.

                  My experience is, the more you think you want to convenience your guests by making them go online to a specific website, the less likely they'll do it on time. My suggestion is ask them directly via email or telephone. You will save alot of waiting time and idle time because invitations and STDs are one of those things that should be completed once. I did online RSVPs and only 50% did them on their own (and these are computer savvy ppl!) so the rest I had to remind twice, some elderly folks are not savvy so I penciled them in after speaking to them directly.

                    thanks for everyone's feedback, but I was actually able to find a site where I could create a form and link it to my wedding website or email to my guests. Once they fill it out, I can then export in excel to create labels. For me, I don't want to update spreadsheet for all the ppl I am inviting b/c I am inviting over 100 ppl. This will work out good for me especially since most people I am inviting use the computer alot. If anyone is interested here are some sites were you can create forms, surveys, invitations etc. Wufoo: Online HTML Form Builder - Contact, Survey & Payment Forms and Online Web Forms, Surveys & Questionnaires - FormAssembly.com

                    here is my site, but its not completely done.
