RSVP from President Barack Obama

Posted On June, 08 2011

Here is a little cool wedding stuff post….

I was intrigued when I saw a blog post from Always a blogsmaid today where a Wedding invitation was sent for a suburban Bride & Groom’s Wedding to who else other than the American President, Barack Obama and his lovely wife Michelle.

What fascinated me was that the couple actually received a lovely response! Unfortunately the President would not be attending, but they did send a note from the White House wishing them well!

The Congratulations letter from Always a blogsmaid

So if you would like a to add something a little different to your wedding memorabilia, or perhaps something special to display at your wedding, send out an invite to the White House, and according to their etiquette rules, a  letter of congratulations will be sent to you.  It will certainly get your guests talking and give your wedding scrapbook historical significance. It can also make a great “gift” from the maid-of-honour, bridesmaids or anyone else with access to an extra invitation. 

Send your wedding invitation to:
The Honorable Barack and Mrs. Obama
The White House
Greetings Office, Room 39
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, D.C. 20500

The Australian Prime Minster will send congratulatory messages to those celebrating significant milestone wedding anniversaries (starting at 50th) and birthdays (starting at 90).
