That’s really neat! I definately intend on inviting the Prez, and maybe some of my FI’s fave rock stars or something.

We sent invites to the Pope and Prez — still waiting and hoping to hear something back from both!

Wow, I never knew you could do that!  That’s impressive if you can get the President or the Pope to your wedding!

That is so cool!
My fiance and I are planning on sending an invite to Mr. and Mrs. Obama. If nothing else, just do have something for our credenza!

We haven’t heard back from the Obamas.  I thought the office of protocol was supposed to send back a congratulatory form letter 🙁

I don’t know about the other bigwigs but I heard that the protocol for getting a response from the greeting room of the US president is to send the invitation AFTER the wedding.

@ilovenycmissie my fiance is English as well.  What did you say in your letter?  Did you just send the invitation?

The thing that brought FH and I together was Chuck Norris so we’ll be inviting him- LOL! And I had a dream about BD Wong being at my wedding once and my best friend decided we should invite him as well (he’s the psychologist on Law and Order SVU and was Martin Short’s assistant in the Father of the Bride series)

Won’t be inviting the prez though since we’re conservative and not really a fan of this administration.

We also invited President and Mrs. Obama, but did not receive a response.  I thought they were supposed to send something out to everyone?  Oh well…

That is so awesome that the Queen (or her people) wrote you back!

I too have heard the President responds after the wedding

That’s awesome about the Queen!  So fun!  I want to ‘invite’ Tony Romo as we share a love of the Cowboys and football.  Also thought about inviting former President – we’re R’s too @ kjpugs! 

I saw where someone invited Mickey and Minnie Mouse and got a signed picture back in a month – thought that great to add to the wedding scrapbook too 🙂  And without seeing I would have never thought about Mickey and Minnie!

Hmm… my FI was born in England and lived there as a child.  He still has dual citizenship so I wonder if they would send us a letter too.  How did you go about writing to the Queen?

@kjpugs – I’m conservative too, but I still think it’s cool to get something back from the White House regardless of my feelings towards the current President.
