(Closed) Famous Guests?

I think the point of sending wedding invitations to famous people like Mickey and Minnie or the president is because they will often send you back a wedding keepsake.  I think Minnie and Mickey send you a signed photo of them in their wedding clothes, and the president sends you a signed picture of him (or the first family) with well-wishes for your wedding day.  Has anyone here done this?  I am interested to know what the person wrote back (or if they even replied!).

Unfortunately, I don’t know anyone famous, so it’ll just be us regular folk at our wedding.

I went to wedding where Jenna Fischer (Pam from The Office) was a bridesmaid. It was right after she had broken her back though so she really laid low.

The closest we’re getting to "famous" is the DJ we hired.  He’s one of the brothers of Gary Cherone, from Extreme, who sang More Than Words.  Haha. 

My sister married a baseball player back in 2006 and since I know calligraphy I addressed all her invitations.  I had personal addresses to two teams’ worth of players (he got traded halfway through their engagement so they invited both teams).  My ex-BF (BF at the time) was so excited for that wedding.  I am glad we broke up before, so he didn’t get to go!  (I’m so mean.)

Hehe, Mama Bruschetta always mentioned people she’d like to invite — usually singers, for some reason.  Bruce Springstein’s the most recognizable name on her list of favorites.

We know a couple of famous people, but they weren’t at my wedding.  How cool your FI’s cousin in on an MTV show, though!  Do you mind sharing what show it is?

I’m so totally going to send invites to the Disney princesses…just to see what they would send back!

Since I bought WAY too many invitations we’re sending some to famous people. Actors from LOST, Mickey & Minnie and The President. I know none of  them will show but I’m hoping for some autographed pictures! 🙂

David Cooke is supposedly attending my friend’s wedding this summer (as a date of a friend of the bride, who is an Idol exec) and another guest is Posh/Beckam’s nanny (friend of the bride). 

Our wedding will be celeb-free though.

One of our wedding guests is the writer of the show Lincoln Heights (on FOX Fam?).  What with all the drama that went on during our wedding (another issue), she should have brought her note pad and start taking notes for the show.

My now mother in law is also a mayor of her home town.

This is too funny! I don’t know anybody famous, but I’d rather it stay that way, muah ha ha! My Maid/Matron of Honor went to school with David Cook though. The closest I ever came to a *famous* person was in Cali when I got yelled at by crazy Dennis Rodman for accidentally going to his restaurant instead of the Crab Shack next door. I wasn’t dressed appropriate, and i was a 17 year old, so I got kicked out! Sorry, I didn’ tknow any better!

Adam Sandler and Sarah Silverman are from my same home town and Adam went to my high school (and we are friendly with Adam’s sister and family), but he won’t be coming to my wedding!

We sent an invitation to the President and he responded back with a card that we’re going to put in our scrapbook.  We knew full well that he wouldn’t come but he does send a nice keepsake back on White House stationery (which is quite lovely!).  Of course we didn’t spend a ton on our invitations either (we printed them ourselves), which for us was definitely not a top priority.
