The idea never appealed to me. If anyone here thinks that those celebrities are ever even aware of your invitation, you are deluding yourself. It seems so silly to me to send an invitation that is basically a make work project for some over worked secretary. I just don’t get a thrill getting a decline from a stranger- celebrity or not.

I never liked this idea. What’s the point in inviting someone you know for a fact will not go?

sariibear:  If you look around on the internet, you’ll find a list of who ‘responds’ to your wedding invitations. Micky & Minne, Cinderella & Charming, and the President all send some sort of standard greeting in return. As a Canadian, you might be able to send something to the Queen, but she only ‘responds’ to citizens of the Commonwealth.

I wish Universal let you invite Harry Potter and get something back. That would be amazing.

sariibear:  I see what you’re saying. I just know that some people actually think that celebrities will show. I think it was an episode of Bridezillas or something where a bride wholeheartedly thought she was important enough for President Obama to show up. I guess the fictional invites are fine and kind of a cute idea.

we sent invites Cinderella and Prince Charming and the Obamas.  its silly I know, but we had a bunch of invites left over.  figured their responses would make cute keepsakes!  we sent ours out about a month ago, haven’t gotten anything back, but I’ve seen some posts on the Bee showing signed Mickey and Minnie posters, so sweet!

sariibear:  I don’t know about postage from Canada to the US, but I do know that Mickey & Minnie reply wherever you are. I’m not sure about Obama.

sariibear:  I plan on doing this with leftover invitations. What else will I use them for? Do I think that President Obama is actually going to open my invitation and shed a tear that he can’t come? No, but I think getting the note written back is kind of cool.

sariibear:  If you include a SASE, it needs to be an American stamp, not the stamps we use to send mail to the USA from Canada.

i’m not canadian, so i can’t help in that area, but we sent invites to mickey and minnie & the obamas. we had extras invitations, so i figured, why not? it was nice to have a little keepsake and if you get a response in time you can display them at your wedding if you wanted.

i got my postcard from mickey & minnie pretty quickly and displayed it at my shower. the one from the obamas arrived just after my wedding.

i eventually want to get a shadow box to frame our invitations, programs, postcards and other mementos.

I invited a musician and got a signed picture back. They didn’t send back the rsvp but the signed photo also had a “Thanks Bride’s name and Groom’s name”. I don’t really care who wrote the personalized thank you at the bottom…I was pretty excited about the signed picture. Don’t care if it was a photocopy either. I used a leftover invitation and one stamp on the envelope and one stamp on the rsvp envelope. I wouldn’t say I wasted time or money since I’m happy with the results.
