Haha! FI sent one to Barack Obama & Family (they send something back, supposedly) and the Queen of England (I’m British although I live in the US).  We didn’t send any to ‘celebrities’ though.  But hey, if you can find an address for them…!

@Elrodien:  I read online that the Queen does not respond to wedding invitations.  The only thing she (her office? lol) responds to is if you are a British citizen and you let her know about a milestone wedding anniversary (50, 60, etc) 🙁 But hey, still worth a try right?  Plus, now we can say we invited the Queen!

I think I’m going to invite James Bond (the character) and Sherlock Holmes.  I bet there’s someone who sends a reply, lol.
