The Invite List
Get current addresses for friends & relatives
Once you've finalised your invitation list, you can sit down one evening with 192.com and search for all your friends and family to get their current and complete address details. The site is very quick and easy to use and saves you phoning around the houses and waiting for weeks to get details from other friends and family. It also means that there will be no invitations going astray because you got the postcode or the door number wrong. Can you imagine what would happen if your favourite auntie didn't receive her wedding invitation?
Find long lost friends & family
Is there a member of your family that you haven't seen in years? Or maybe a childhood friend that would make your day if they came to your wedding? With 192.com, you can search for people throughout the UK, even if you don't know their location. You also have the option to refine your search by an estimated current age or by other household occupants (e.g. name of spouse).
Searching the marriage register
A common challenge with tracing female friends and family is that their surname can change when they get married. The trick here is to search the Marriage register on 192.com by maiden name for an estimated date range. This will help you find their listing on the marriage register. Armed with this information you can search for their current address on the 192.com people finder. You will also find out the name of their spouse on the marriage register so you can use this to refine your search by other household occupants.
Free directory enquiries

From Venue to Honeymoon
On 192.com you can search for all sorts of businesses from florists, venues and car hire to dress and cakemakers – in fact, any business! The site gives you a detailed profile of every business you find, including a shop front photo so that you can see the character of a business. 192.com also links most business listings to related references on the web. So if there are reviews about this business, you're likely to find them here too.
When choosing a venue don't just rely on stock photos from their website or brochure, check it out yourself. Sometimes there can be a lot to choose from and this is where 192.com can help. By looking up the venue using our business finder you can look at aerial photography of the venue to give you a better idea of its surroundings as well whether it will work for you.
And finally, 192.com gives you complete peace of mind by giving you access to director reports and detailed company credit reports. Director reports will give you insight into the directors of the company and their current and previous business interests. Also you can make sure that the venue you book is reliable by checking the company credit reports to give you the full financial profile of a business including their risk and credit rating.
Find what you need, when you need it
You can search directory enquiries for free on the site which will give you phone numbers and correct addresses for 11 million people and 4 million businesses in the UK. But remember, this type of search is restricted in how you can search it as you must specify a location. Directory enquiry listings also only include the person's first initial and will only allow you to search by the bill payer's name.
To give you much greater coverage of the UK population and much more powerful search options, 192.com also allows you to search the edited Electoral Roll. This will require you to purchase search credits to unlock the true people finding power of 192.com. You will also be able to search without having to specify a location and you can refine your search by age range (e.g. 35-39) and other household occupants (e.g. spouse).
