One Last Invitation

All our invitations have been out for weeks now, but there was one more couple we still needed to invite:
Here's a closer look:
I feel bad that I printed his on a crappy label....I guess for the President, I could have done it nicer. But truthfully, we didn't really have envelopes to spare, so I had to use one of our mistake envelopes from our initial print job. I've also had this envelope in my purse for a few days and it got a little bent around the edges, whoops! Anyway, I found this blog post on Gwenniepie waaay back when I first got engaged about mailing an invitation to the White House and saved the post for when I actually mailed our my invitations!

I googled "mailing a wedding invitation to the White House" and found the proper way to address the invitation at YourWeddingplace.com:

How to invite United States President to your wedding:

The Honorable Barack Obama and Mrs. Obama
The White House
Greetings Office Rm. 39
1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Washington, DC 20500

The white house will send back an "official" regrets reply if you send them an invitation! Certainly something for the scrapbook and a little keepsake of the year you got married.


So look out for your invitation President Obama...oh and also: We are registered at Bed, Bath and Beyond and William Sonoma! Just in case you decided to send us a gift!
Security and secret service fees weren't exactly worked into our budget....what do we do if he actually comes?! I'll worry about that when the time comes...

Will/Did you invite the President to your wedding?

Thier loss if they don't attend!How cool is it that you'll have an offical regret letter from the US President and his wife.

Rorie said...

Ahhahahaha I am absolutley going to invite them!! Omgoodness thanks for the idea!! Ill be looking this post up when it comes time to mail our invites!!!

Jasmine said...

I'm totally inviting them, too! I saw it in a magazine and I figured it's a perfect way to show a completed invitation... without having to block out someone's address! We all kind of know where he lives already =)

Very cute!

You can also send one to Micky and Minnie Mouse! They'll send you back a signed photo and a "Just Married" button.
