How to get guest list?

So back in September, FI and I asked his parents (divorced) for their guest lists so we had an idea on how to budget, and which venues to look at that could accomodate the amount of people etc etc. Well, we never received one from his mother so he guessed which was fine then because we really just needed a round about number. Well now, it's nearly December and we want to send out STDs soon because nearly all of the guests invited will be coming from other states. We've received addresses from all our parents except his mother, who never sent a guest list. We ask her at least once a week for this, usually more now. Has anyone else had trouble with this and if so how did they handle it? She is such a sweet lady and I don't want to be rude but asking politely for it hasn't gotten us anywhere and I don't know what to do now.
